The St. Regis New York Serves Serena Williams Well

By Chris Boyle

Serena Williams Bentley St. Regis New YorkBy Kelly Carter

Serena Williams may be the world’s top-ranked tennis player but it’s The St. Regis New York that is No. 1 with her.

The swank hotel on 55th Street and Fifth Avenue was once again Williams’ hotel of choice while in New York. And once again, the hotel was her lucky charm.

Earlier this week, Williams, pictured resting on the hood of the custom St. Regis 2013 Bentley Mulsanne wearing Alexander McQueen, knocked off No. 2 Victoria Azarenka to win the BNP Paribas Showdown at Madison Square Garden.

Astor Suite The St. Regis New York“The St. Regis New York is my home away from home in New York City,” Williams told Elite Traveler exclusively. “It always brings me luck when I stay there and I can’t live without their signature butler service.”

The butler did it! Her butler was able to meet her every need when she stayed in the luxe 600-square foot Astor Suite  (shown here) with a full marble bathroom.

She first stayed at The St. Regis last summer for the U.S. Open, which she won to collect her 15th Grand Slam title. It’s no wonder Williams, the oldest No. 1 player in WTA history, plans to check into the hotel again in August for this year’s U.S. Open.

Introduced in September, the 1,700 square foot sanctuary comes with the signature St. Regis Butler Service, in-suite champagne bar and complimentary access to the St. Regis’ 2013 Bentley Mulsanne (the first in the U.S.) within a 10-block radius of the hotel. Flushing Meadows is a tad bit out of its range but maybe not for a champion like Williams.
