The St. Regis New York
New York, New YorkAAA Inspector 592: The history of New York literally pours forth here, and it is a must see kind of place even if just for a cocktail at the iconic lounge.
A New York landmark since 1904, this extraordinary property offers style at a grand level. When combined with contemporary luxury and attentive services, it’s in a rarefied, supreme class altogether. This historic hotel was built by John Jacob Astor IV as a sister property to the Waldorf Astoria, just a few years before Astor went down with the Titanic. Today, guests can enjoy unlimited use of the private on-site health club and the sublime King Cole Bar is pure New York classic. Prime Fifth Avenue shopping is a few steps around the corner. The hotel offers a variety of uniquely noble experiences, including learning the art of sabrage, the French tradition of opening a champagne bottle with a sabre sword.Book Now
