St. Regis Istanbul
An Old City‘s New Yorker
Of Starwood‘ s many hotels, St. Regis has always been the most highend, luxury representatives measured against any standards. Since its birth in 1904, the charm of St. Regis has not diminished through the twists and turns. Perhaps the citystate of Singapore has made the brand seem somewhat out of place, but Istanbul, Turkey, is able to quell this magnificent and elegant historical brand of New York.
”For St. Regis hotel, it is quite important to be stationed in this city,” said the marketing manager Selim Olmez, who, though a local, has worked abroad for the past 12 years in Abu Dhabiand St. Petersburg. Now Selim is home.
When the taxi enters Nisantasi District, which houses the St. Regis, the bustle and fashion around are indeed similar to New York. There are not only luxury brands from New York and London, but also boutique restaurants with the best service, and of course there is also an insolent energy simmering in this ancient city.
