NEW YORK CITY One of the most extravagant hotel suites in the world has been unveiled at The St. Regis New York.
The 1,700-sq.-ft. Tiffany Suite, outfitted in the iconic turquoise of Tiffany & Co. and bedecked with glimmering crystals, boasts a nightly rate of US$8,500 (plus tax) and is already booked for most of the summer.
Located on the hotel’s 14th floor overlooking Fifth Avenue and with views of Central Park, the suite includes glass-beaded and silver-leafed handmade wall coverings, an intricate jewel-shaped mirror and a silver-leafed table. Furniture design draws from modern, classic and Art Deco inspirations.
A bar cart features an array of Tiffany crystal barware and accessories, and the dining room is designed to resemble Tiffany’s famous turquoise jewelry box, adorned with a dazzling crystal chandelier.
This is not the first Tiffany suite at The St. Regis. In 1991, Tiffany designer John Loring outfitted a Tiffany suite that featured a more masculine aesthetic, with more focus on jewel tones and heavier woods, according to Women’s Wear Daily.
