New Bentley Suite At St. Regis New York

Starwood Hotels & Resorts and Bentley Motors have unveiled a one-of-a-kind hotel suite at the iconic St. Regis New York, designed as a collaboration between the renowned international brands to showcase their associated luxury, craftsmanship and style.

 

The latest addition to an exclusive collection of designer accommodations (including The Dior Suite and The Tiffany Suite), The Bentley Suite bears all the hallmarks of the British carmaker’s design values and features an entryway foyer, one bedroom, one and a half baths, an expansive dining room and living room complete with floor-to-ceiling windows. Fittings reflect jewellery features found in the marque’s cars, while the use of leather and colours convey the special cocooning that drivers and passengers feel in a Bentley.

 

Entering the 158-square meter space through a set of double doors, guests are greeted by cream and neutral tones set against the rich wood finishes of the handcrafted furnishings. The suite’s design juxtaposes classic elegance and modern sleekness, where the bespoke black leather tile floor pairs perfectly with a linen coloured, diamond-quilted Bentley leather wall. A metallic silver mirror, inspired by one of Bentley’s wheel designs, sits above an accent table evocative of the dashboard of a Bentley and reflects a sculpture of the marque’s renowned Flying B mascot.

 

In the living room, ivory walls accented with crisp black crown moulding line the ceiling, ultra-luxe tufted Bentley leather sofa and wing chairs provide ultimate comfort and relaxation, and a crystal chandelier decorates the centre of the room. Luxurious menswear-inspired herringbone drapery with seatbelt detailing runs from floor to ceiling, framing windows that provide breathtaking views overlooking Fifth Avenue and Central Park.

 

The dining room features an expansive media wall including a large television and 4 clocks from Breitling (a long-term partner of Bentley) marking the time in New York, Riyadh, London and Moscow. The dining table uses Bentley’s smoked fiddle-back eucalyptus veneer offset with metal engine-spin place settings, beneath a crystal chandelier echoing the headlight styling of the cars. Bold, black trim is set against cream walls with artwork that displays the heritage of the Bentley brand through images taken from historic moments from the brand’s founding to the present day, while a sumptuous leather rug and dark stained white oak floors bring to life the understated elegance of the brand.

 

A custom sleigh bed with classic Bentley burled wood is complemented by the warm colour palette of aubergine, warm grays and ivory in the bedroom. The ‘root burrow’ wood throughout the room is one of the signature Mulsanne model’s exotic natural wood veneers, while the marble bathroom and intricate finishings accentuate the bespoke luxury characteristic shared by both brands.

 

Available from USD 9,500 excluding taxes per night, guests staying in The Bentley Suite enjoy complimentary use of the 2013 St. Regis Bentley Mulsanne within a 10-block radius of the hotel. Designed and engineered at Crewe, UK from the ground-up, the luxury flagship sedan has been customised exclusively for the hotel, with a bottle cooler and crystal champagne flutes, St. Regis crests on the headrests and personalised tread plates.

 

Built in 1904 by John Jacob Astor IV, the St. Regis New York has been an epitome of luxury for more than a century and serves as the flagship for the brand. Beyond New York City, guests can now experience the brand’s signature butler service in over 30 locations around the world.
