NEW YORK—The St. Regis New York has introduced its extensive renovation this month with redesigned guestrooms, suites and public spaces and the debut of the new King Cole Bar & Salon under renowned New York chef and restaurateur, John DeLucie.
“Since it opened in 1904, The St. Regis New York has entertained every generation of society with the unique ability to capture the ever-changing spirit of the city and stay synonymous with impeccable style and inherent glamour,” stated Paul James, Global Brand Leader, St. Regis, The Luxury Collection and W Hotels Worldwide. “This renovation marks a momentous occasion for the St. Regis brand, a New York icon, now celebrated at 31 hotels around the world, each setting the stage for the next generation of luxury travelers.”
The multi-million dollar, comprehensive renovation at The St. Regis New York culminated this November 2013, with redesigned guestrooms, suites, hallways and public spaces. HDC, the interior design firm that transformed The St. Regis Florence, embraced the design aesthetic of the hotel while infusing contemporary style.
In the lobby of The St. Regis New York, the renovation reincorporates lost architectural elements, including opening up oval windows above the front desk which were part of the original design of the hotel, while simultaneously infusing fresh touches through updated furnishings and amenities.
The guestroom floors feature black-lacquer painted doors, textured fabric walls and five distinct color palettes in the entryway on each floor. Guestrooms will be updated to include marble tiled entryways, rich color schemes with bold accent colors, fabrics and luxe leather details, custom furnishings and new technology.

In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
