It’s been a few years in the making, and now the St. Regis Istanbul has announced an official opening date this spring. Come March 1, the Istanbul hotel scene—already offering a tantalizing choice for luxury travelers—will get another luxury addition when St. Regis imports its signature butler service and ultra-luxe amenities to the cosmopolitan city on the Bosphorus.
Located in the Nisantasi distict (a favorite shopping area for fashionistas), the hotel was newly constructed by award-winning Turkish architect Emre Arola. The St. Regis Istanbul will have 118 rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows, free wifi, and spacious marble bathrooms stocked with Remède bath products. Besides the aforementioned private butlers, guests will be privy to 24-hour concierge service.
Facilities include the Iridium Spa, indoor pools, seven meeting rooms, and three F&B outlets: the French-style St. Regis Brasserie; the Rooftop Restaurant and Lounge; and the signature bar.
