Amazing Grace

These perfect examples of timeless elegance have stayed ahead of the pack by keeping one eye on tradition and the other on modern luxury


WHEN IT WAS FOUNDED more than a century ago by John Jacob Astor IV, the St. Regis New York immediately became a beloved landmark, thanks to its Beaux Arts exterior, elegant public spaces and first-class service. Nothing much has changed, save for some welcome upgrades, including a 2006 interior redesign, led by Sills Huniford, featuring St. Regis hallmarks like silk wall coverings and Waterford crystal chandeliers.

With more renovations forthcoming, not to mention the on-site Adour Alain Ducasse still receiving breathless praise (it opened in 2008, eons ago in New York restaurant years), it’s clear that this grande dame hasn’t slowed down a bit. www.starwoodhotels.com/stregis
