The St Regis Hotel

Case Study

By Vivreau Advanced Water Systems


Meetings and Banquet Program

For more than a century, the St. Regis New York has served as the backdrop for some of the city’s most important corporate events and social celebrations. The hotel features 16,000 sq.ft. of beautifully appointed gathering space, with up to 300 guests accommodated in the largest of the 15 venues.

Previous Bottled Water Profile:

  1. Catering for Meetings and Banquets: Provided traditional flat and sparkling bottled
    water at 100,000 bottles/year, cost was incorporated as part of the conference fee
  2. 100,000+ bottles of annual waste


  1. Satisfy hotel-wide sustainability initiatives
  2. Reduce annual cost to provide trucked-in, pre-bottled waters and the per
    poundage cost for disposing of the bottles
  3. Minimize or eliminate all, one-time use vessels
  4. Provide an elegant alternative to traditional bottled water
