St. Regis Hotels & Resorts to Kick off International Polo Season in the UK

bpdstregisSt. Regis Hotels & Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: HOT) will host the annual St. Regis International Cup on Saturday, 16th May 2015 at Cowdray Park Polo Club, West Sussex – home of British Polo.

Now celebrating its eighth year, the high-goal polo match will see St. Regis Connoisseur Nacho Figueras play on the Americas team against England on the latter’s home turf.

VIP guests watching from the St. Regis hospitality marquee will be able to experience signature brand rituals, including the St. Regis signature Bloody Mary cocktail, first concocted at The St. Regis New York 80 years ago. Guests and their families will also be treated to The St. Regis Afternoon Tea, which will include tea sandwiches, English tartlets and scones with strawberry preserve and lemon curd.

St. Regis has long been associated with the “Sport of Kings”, beginning in the early 20th century when polo and St. Regis’ founding family, the Astors, became part of the New York social scene. St. Regis continues to grow globally with the brand expanding its polo presence in nearly as many destinations.

St. Regis will bring a taste of the brand’s signature style to polo for its guests, residents and the local community, who can purchase tickets for general entry from £15 per person:
