Bentley Motor and the St. Regis Hotel New York are delighted to announce the debut of a one-of-a-kind hotel suite at the iconic Manhattan landmark, the first hotel suite design collaboration for the luxury lifestyle provider.

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.

The suite, elegant and daring, featuring a modern Bentley interior, is designed in partnership 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.  

Welcome to The Bentley

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 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.

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 colored, 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.

The dining room features an expansive media wall including a large TV as well as four Breitling clocks, Bentley’s long-term partner, 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. 

Bold, black trim is set against cream walls with artwork that displays the heritage of the Bentley brand: images taken from historic moments from the brand’s founding to the present day. A crystal chandelier adorns the ceiling, echoing Bentley’s headlight styling, while a sumptuous leather rug and dark stained white oak floors bring to life the understated elegance of the brand.

In the living room, ivory walls accented with crisp black crown molding lines 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 bedroom features a custom sleigh bed with one of the classic Bentley burled wood veneers, complemented by the warm color palette of aubergine, warm grays and ivory. The ‘root burrow’ wood throughout the room is one of the signature Mulsanne model’s exotic natural wood veneers.

”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,” said Kevin Rose, member of the Bentley board, sales, marketing & after sales.
