Back in April, we told you about a newly-announced partnership
between luxury automaker Bentley
and luxury lodging provider Starwood Hotels. In addition to providing lodging for Bentley’s driving events, Starwood will also create Bentley-themed suites at select hotel properties.
The first of these will be located in the St. Regis Hotel New York, situated on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue, in the heart of the shopping district. The Bentley Suite will provide well-heeled guests with 1,700 square feet of Bentley-themed luxury, including amenities such as black leather tile floors and a burled walnut sleigh bed.
Should you tire of your (ample) indoor surroundings, the suite also includes limited use of a Bentley Mulsanne
sedan, though guests are limited to exploring a ten-block radius from the hotel.
We’re more inclined to believe that guests are kindly requested to keep their travels within a reasonable proximity of the hotel, as those affluent enough to afford a stay in the Bentley Suite are generally granted some latitude when it comes to rules and regulations.
In case you’re thinking of a weekend shopping trip to New York City and wish to book the Bentley Suite at the St. Regis for your getaway, it runs $9,500 per night plus taxes and all the absurd fees that New York City tacks onto hotel rooms. Out the door, it will run around $11,000 per night, including a modest $95 for gratuities.
