New York St. Regis Hotel Opens Bentley Motors Suite
The St. Regis Hotel in New York has announced the debut of a new designer suite by Bentley Motors. The Bentley Motors Suite is the third in a collection of Designer Suites at the hotel, along with The Dior Suite and The Tiffany Suite.
Behind a set of double doors, the 1,700 square foot suite features cream and neutral tones and black leather tile floors, as well as a linen-colored, diamond-quilted Bentley leather wall. The furnishings are handcrafted, and the suite has a metallic silver mirror, inspired by one of Bentley’s wheel designs, which rests above a table that resembles the dashboard of a Bentley. Reflected in the mirror is a sculpture of the Mulsanne Bonnet mascot, the Flying B.
The dining room includes a large TV and four Breitling clocks, marking the times in New York, Riyadh, London, and Moscow. The dining room table has Bentley’s smoked fiddle-back eucalyptus veneer offset with metal engine-spun place settings, while a crystal chandelier hangs from the ceiling. Beneath the table is a leather rug and dark stained white oak floors. The walls have a black trim and are adorned with artwork displaying the heritage of Bentley, with images of historic moments from the brand’s founding in 1919 until present day.
Ivory walls accented with black molding line the living room, while an ultra-luxe tufted Bentley leather sofa and wing chairs provide resting places. Menswear-inspired herringbone drapery with seatbelt detailing runs from the floor to the ceiling, and a crystal chandelier dangles from the center of the room. The windows provide views overlooking Fifth Avenue and Central Park.
A custom sleigh bed with a classic Bentley burl wood veneer highlights the bedroom, which features a palette of aubergine, warm grays, and ivory, as well as one of the signature Mulsanne model’s exotic natural wood veneers, “root burrow.”
In addition to the new suite, a specially-made 2013 Bentley Mulsanne will be joining the house fleet of the St. Regis hotel. Included in the flagship sedan is a bottle cooler and crystal champagne flutes, St. Regis crests on the headrests, and personalized tread plates.
