St. Regis Hotels opens Istanbul flagship
Istanbul’s first St. Regis hotel has opened. All 118 guestrooms have views of the Bosphorus Strait, said St. Regis parent Starwood Hotels & Resorts.
The opening of the St. Regis Istanbul marks the luxury brand’s debut in Turkey and features the first international outpost of Wolfgang Puck’s Spago restaurant plus the world’s second Bentley Suite.
Designed by Turkish architect Emre Arolat, the hotel sits atop Maçka Park, with views of the Bosphorus from its 118 guestrooms and suites.
In addition to the California-style cuisine at Spago, whose other locations are all found in the US, a highlight of the hotel is the Bentley Suite, inspired by the Continental range of Bentley grand tourers and featuring iconic Bentley design elements throughout.
The first Bentley Suite opened at the St. Regis Hotel New York in 2012.
