Don’t let The St. Regis New York’s age or style fool you. The New York hotel manages to combine classic décor with up-to-the-minute technology that’s not only fun to play with, but makes your stay more convenient and enjoyable.
A bedside control panel operates almost everything in the room with the push of a button: the room temperature, lights, alarm clock, telephone, housekeeping and privacy lights. It even lets you make calls to your personal butler; butlers carry wireless devices at all times so you can connect with them via email.
Bedrooms and bathrooms come equipped with flat-screen televisions; a lot of rooms feature TVs stowed in the foot of the bed that pop up when you feel like watching some tube. On top of that, you’ll find DVD players and access to Wii, PlayStation and Xbox through the concierge.
You can also stream movies and TV shows on your laptop using the hotel’s complimentary Wi-Fi. Even if you’ve forgotten your computer, just ask the business center — the staff can lend you one. And in case you forget your essential cell phone cord at home, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel has you covered, with all types of chargers on hand.
Each room features heat sensors that let housekeeping know when you’re in the room, so you don’t have to worry about hanging up the “Do not disturb” sign or answering anybody’s knocks. It’s just one more personal touch that demonstrates that The St. Regis New York has your comfort as its top priority.
