WAIT. Why the Name Kitty?
In December of 2018, The St. Regis Aspen Resort received a gift from the North Pole – a new puppy named Kitty.
The gentleman who founded the original St. Regis in New York in 1904, John Jacob Astor IV, had a dog named Kitty. As the second property in the collection, The St. Regis Aspen Resort honors his legacy (and sense of humor!) by having a hotel dog named Kitty.
