And what walls they are--the lobby is framed by marble columns with gilded molding, stretching up to glittering crystal chandeliers and painted panels of blue sky. Just off the lobby is Adour, the French restaurant founded by much-lauded chef Alain Ducasse. The King Cole Bar is adorned with a striking mural by Maxfield Parrish. And room service is available 24 hours a day.
If you'd prefer a menu dedicated to relaxation, visit the Remède Spa by St. Regis. You can sip champagne and nibble truffles before enjoying a customized facial or massage.
During your stay, the hotel's butlers will be at your beck and call 24 hours a day. More than 30 butlers staff the St. Regis, each of whom can say, "How can I help you?" in at least 2 languages. Need help packing or unpacking? Want to greet the morning with drawn drapes and tea and coffee service? The St. Regis's staff of butlers is at your service.
When you first enter your guestroom or suite, your butler will guide you through a space extravagantly decorated with deeply carved crown moldings, wainscoting and silk wall coverings. A cascading silk drape flows from the 12-foot ceiling to the down duvet-topped bed, layered with Egyptian-cotton linens. The plasma TV comes with premium channels and a DVD player, and wireless Internet access is complimentary. Step into the Italian-marble bathroom, and you'll find amenities from the Remède Spa. Once you're unpacked, your butler can whisk away 2 items for pressing, a complimentary welcome to your stay in Manhattan.
