Car lovers can reside in the lap of luxury at the St. Regis Hotel in New York City with the newly opened Bentley Suite, though they might need to take out a loan to stay there. The 15th-floor hotel room with floor-to-ceiling windows and spectacular views of Manhattan starts at $9,500 per night. For that rate, guests stay in a suite triple the size of many New York City apartments. At 1,700 square feet, the Bentley Suite has an entryway foyer, expansive living room and dining room, one bedroom, and one-and-a-half baths.
The wood trim used in many Bentley cars has been used throughout the suite, including on the dining table and on the sleigh bed. Unique Bentley features include herringbone drapery with seat-belt detailing, a diamond-quilted Bentley leather wall, a silver mirror inspired by a Bentley wheel, an accent table that echoes the styling of a Bentley dashboard and a sculpture of the Flying B, the iconic hood ornament on all Bentleys.
Guests in the Bentley Suite receive the complimentary use of the 2013 St. Regis Bentley Mulsanne within a 10-block radius of the hotel during their stay.
