The Renowned St. Regis Hotel
The St. Regis New York is probably “THE iconic hotel of New York”…maybe even more so than the Plaza. It was built at the height of the Gilded Age, by John Jacob Astor IV, who also owned half of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel (the original Waldorf, where now stands the Empire State building). The St Regis is named after Upper St. Regis Lake in the Adirondacks, which is named after a French monk known for his hospitality and care towards underprivileged children and prostitutes (and admiration of North American native tribes), John Francis Regis. The St Regis was designed by architects Trowbridge & Livingston, with interiors by Arnold Constable. Construction began in 1901 and the hotel opened September 4, 1904. I think, to this day, it remains the classiest luxury hotel in New York.
