A notable New York hotel

164 Rooms / 65 Suites

One of the city’s most iconic hotels, The St. Regis New York is a designated New York City landmark with a history that dates back to 1904. The original owner, socialite John Jacob Astor IV, envisioned the hotel as a lavish retreat with residential flair. Today, you’ll find original brass detailing and marble staircases throughout the Midtown Manhattan hotel, evoking the grand old days of luxury travel.

True to the St. Regis brand, every guest is assigned a butler who arrives impeccably dressed in black tails and white gloves to attend to your every need, from unpacking and preparing your temporary home to serving coffee and tea service in the morning to arranging wake-up calls. Whether it’s bringing room service, helping you run an errand, organizing a cocktail party for you and friends or snagging theater tickets, your butler can do just about anything. Every butler carries a wireless handheld device that provides email access at all times, meaning you can send requests when you’re in your room or on the go.

The hotel’s fine dining restaurant, Adour Alain Ducasse recently closed to make way for the new-and-improved King Cole Bar & Salon, helmed by New York chef and restaurateur John DeLucie. The famed King Cole Bar (where the Bloody Mary originated) is named for the Maxfield Parrish mural on the wall. A small gym and a Remède spa ensure you’ll both look and feel great while on vacation.  

And for when you want to explore the outdoors, you can’t beat the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s prime spot on East 55th Street at Fifth Avenue. You’re a short walk, cab or bus ride from the best the city has to offer: Central Park, Broadway shows, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the Museum Mile and the Museum of Modern Art, and Fifth Avenue shopping at boutiques and department stores, including the flagship Saks Fifth Avenue.
