Think back to a bygone era of butlers, gilded accents, and fresco ceilings, the St. Regis in New York City brings back this old school style and service.
When I was planning my birthday weekend in New York City, I was really torn on where to stay. I wanted to try some place new, but longed to go back to one of my favorites, The Chatwal, which I posted about here. Well I’m so glad I tried something new,–the St. Regis exceeded my expectations. The service is top notch and they offer such delightful touches to your stay, like butler service.
The Lobby is grand and rich in history, did you know the Bloody Mary was invented here?
I was upgraded to the Monroe Suite featuring a living room, two bathrooms, a small kitchen area, and bedroom. Upon arriving I was greeted by my lovely butler and presented with chocolate covered strawberries with a birthday message! How thoughtful! She also asked me if I wanted my suitcase unpacked, and offered complimentary ironing for two garments.
My birthday outfit was of course, a party dress! However with this below 0 New York City weather, tights are a must! I love Wolford tights since they are warm, dense and are built to last for ever. I tried their new ‘Care Collection’ which includes tights to assist with cellulite, and moisturizing issues. I personally love the Velvet De Luxe 50 hold ups-chic and sexy!
Have you ever visited a St. Regis property? What did you think of the Butler service? Next time I hope to try one of their unique suites like the Dior Suite, Tiffany Suite, or even Bently Suite! Until next time…
