First opened in 1904 by the Astor family, The St Regis New York is a luxe fixture in the heart of the city. The landmark hotel retains its early-20th-century charm in its well-preserved Beaux-Arts-style interiors, including ornate gold detailing on the walls, frescoes and sparkly crystal chandeliers. Have a drink at King Cole Bar (book Table 55 for an ultra-exclusive evening); or the stately Astor Court, known for its afternoon tea. Feel like you’re part of the hotel’s history when you reserve the Presidential Suite (Salvador Dalí was one of many notable figures to stay here). The glamorous suite has classical interior architecture paired with modern design elements like animal-print fabrics, bold-hued furniture and contemporary art. The two-bedroom suite has everything you need, including separate living and dining areas, a study, library and kitchen.
