Bentley Suite at St.Regis Hotel
Bentley is way past making branded pens and apparel and golf clubs. They went ahead and launched a bespoke Bentley suite at New York’s St. Regis hotel!
The suite is designed as a collaboration between the masterful minds at St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, and Bentley Motors, providing guests with the luxury, craftsmanship and style associated with both renowned international brands. The Bentley Suite joins The Dior Suite and The Tiffany Suite as part of the exclusive collection of Designer Suites at the hotel, built by John Jacob Astor IV in 1904, and follows on the heels of a global partnership between Starwood’s Luxury Brands and Bentley Motors.
If you are wondering about the cost of staying at Bentley suite at the Manhattan-based hotel, well, you can’t afford it, so don’t ask! We are wondering what would be next for Bentley? A Bentley-branded church perhaps?
Bentley press release:
The Bentley Suite features an entryway foyer, one bedroom, one and a half baths, an expansive dining room and living room complete with floor-to-ceiling windows on the 15th floor. The suite, debuting in September, is available starting at $9,500 plus tax per night and includes complimentary access to the 2013 St. Regis Bentley Mulsanne within a 10-block radius of the hotel. Guests will be treated to the St. Regis hallmark services including signature St. Regis Butler Service and in-suite champagne bar.
Kevin Rose, member of the Bentley board, sales, marketing & aftersales, says: “Everybody at Bentley has been looking forward to the culmination of this collaboration with the St. Regis Hotel New York. We believe the two brands are perfectly matched, both bringing a clear understanding of what is important for a genuine luxury experience – attention to detail, quality, a sense of heritage balanced with contemporary style and an instinctive knowledge of what is right for our customers. The Bentley Suite at the St. Regis New York will become a benchmark for taste and quality and a destination in its own right in one of the world’s most wonderful cities.”
“As guests enter the suite, they will be greeted by a room which bears all the hallmarks of Bentley design values – many of the fittings reflect jewellery features in our cars, and the use of leather and colours convey the special cocooning that drivers and passengers feel when they experience the interior of a Bentley,” said senior Bentley designer, Daniele Ceccomori.
“There is a sense of layering of the materials which creates organic shapes. The suite is not just a graphical execution, it is more of a three-dimensional expression of interacting materials to give a language of its own to space and form.”
On entering the expansive 1,700 square foot suite through a set of double doors, guests are greeted by the defining characteristics of the luxury automobile brand: a blend of cream and neutral tones, set against the rich wood finishes of the handcrafted furnishings found throughout the space. The suite’s design boasts a unique juxtaposition of classic elegance and modern sleekness that reflects the bespoke elements of both brands. The 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 renowned Mulsanne Bonnet mascot, the Flying B. Guests immediately feel that the suite is both elegant and daring, combining the modern and glamorous qualities of the brand with the timeless and impeccable style of The St. Regis New York.
