ST.Regis – Casting Light On a New Era

Opened in 1894 by legendary hotelier César Ritz, the St.Regis Rome has always been considered one of the best examples of high-level European hospitality and enjoys a strategic location in the center of the city.

December 27, 2018

The St. Regis Rome has just undergone a full-scale restoration which includes all the areas for entertaining and socializing such as the lounge, lobby, library, and bar. In addition to that, all the guest rooms and opulent suites in the hotel have been revamped to match the hotel’s new look and feel.

The New Age of ST. Regis

 

Having always maintained an impeccable luxury and style which captured the spirit of the city, this hotel has now masterfully combined its rich and glorious heritage with the modern sophistication of its dramatic new design.

The metamorphosis of this historic palazzo in Rome began with the remodeling of the library, lobby, and the Lounge Bar, which, today, is the social heart of the St. Regis hotel. It is characterized by timeless Italian elegance which features a stylish and harmonious blend of culinary delicacies and art.

Also restored is the Ritz Ballroom, which is named after Cesar Ritz, the world-renowned hotelier. After six months of meticulous restoration, this ballroom, which was the very first public ballroom in Rome, is now a spectacular example of Roman Pre-Raphaelite heritage.

The hotel’s new essence is tightly connected to the concept of light. Pierre-Yves Rochon, a French interior designer took on the challenge to embrace the past and the present, and to revitalize one of the most esteemed hotels in Rome and breathe life back into it.

 

Aristocratic Roman Residences

 

Roman society first experienced the architecturally iconic hotel in 1894. The building’s location in what is arguably the city’s most impressive palazzo led to the emergence of the St. Regis hotel as a social beacon for international travelers and Romans alike. Today the hotel defines a new era of luminosity that has never been seen before – with a unique blend of noble heritage and fearless, stylish interiors that have transformed the grand into the supremely luxurious.

The St. Regis has shed its old bearing and is now stepping out into the limelight to take over the city of Rome. This artful residence now has high ceilings that are filled with light. It boasts deluxe guestrooms and suites that are decorated with precious fabrics, handmade glass curios, and an overall air of effortless sophistication that is distinctly urbane.

The exclusive partnerships with Italian excellence in the fields of fashion, art and design

 

To crown the renovation, the hotel features a number of new exclusive partnerships: international art gallery Galleria Continua showcases masterpieces by the best exponents of the contemporary art scene. Moreover, fashion designer Giada Curti has reimagined all the employees’ uniforms; in the lounge bar, Lumen, Cocktails & Cuisine, the menus have been created by Roman-born illustrator Gianluca Biscalchin whereas bespoke cocktails are served in unique glassware curated by Le Directeur and exclusively designed by Italian contemporary artists Nico Vascellari and Federico Pepe.

Other collaborations have been made with important partners such as IF Unique Art Experiences, to provide guests a surprising immersive experience in the legendary days of Ancient Rome to discover through special virtual reality viewers; Larusmiani haute couture brand, a great example of the finest artisanship and tailoring. In addition, the hotel offers a customized courtesy car for guests: an iconic Fiat 600 Multipla from 1962, designed exclusively and realized by Garage Italia, with a new zero emission electric engine unit.
