Styling and profiling on a custom 2013 Bentley Mulsanne is none other than tennis queen herself, Serena Williams! The sports' wildchild was a recent guest at the St. Regis New York and she showed just how to transition from demon on the court to a beautiful coquette.

Ms. Williams was in town for an exhibition match at Madison Square Garden, and after she defeated rival Victoria Azarenka, headed back to the swank hotel. There in the Astor Suite, she changed from her notoriously stylish tennis gear into a glam Alexander McQueen frock for some poses on hotel's luxe auto. Though we are *not loving the hair. WUWT?

This isn't Serena's first stay at the St. Regis, and some say she thinks the Astor Suite gives her good luck. Hey, who are we to argue superstition with a gal who looks like that?
Serena will return to hotel this August for the US Open.

Should you wish to stay in that one-bedroom suite before then, rates in April begin at $1,250 per night. Or you can just be happy to book a superior room--which is nothing to sneeze at with its included butler service—for a mere $795.

In the lead up the one of the biggest tennis tournaments in the world, both Venus and Serena Williams have headed down under to limber up and get acclimatized before they play in next week's Australian Open in Melbourne.

The fashionista sisters gathered quite the crowd when they practiced their serves and warmed-up their backhand. We're not talking on the court--they did this all in the lobby of the hotel at which they were staying, The Olsen. No, they weren't slamming furry tennis balls around, instead they silenced a crowd with their ping-pong skills.

The sisters are resting up before they head into round one of the Open and this hotel is the best place to do it. We recently told you about the extended check-out at the Art Series Hotels and it seems like Serena is banking on some free nights after she tweeted, "Love this #overstaycheckout idea @ArtSeriesHotels - If no one checks into my room, I don't have to check out - ever!"

Let's hope they get some luck in free rooms and on the court.

Serena Williams Stays at the Serena Hotel

Tennis superstar Serena Williams is in Kenya for a three-day charity tour and she's decided to shack up at a very fitting hotel for her, The Serena Hotel in Nairobi.

The one half of the William’s tennis sister-act and nine grand slam singles title winner, was befittingly whisked to Nairobi’s Serena Hotel where she will be based during her stay in the country.

Aside from having the same name as an athletic idol, The Serena Hotel is not a bad place to stay. The hotel has views of downtown Nairobi and the city's Central Park and has some of the modern comforts we need, like a pool, satellite TV and wireless internet hotspots. There's even an in-house salon for beauty treatments in case you spend a few days on safari.

While several reviews would probably not classify this hotel as luxurious in the vein of a Mandarin Oriental or Four Seasons, we're sure Serena is getting the star treatment in the hotel's presidential suite.

Last week The Gansevoort South had Serena Williams and Rafael Nadal play a game of tennis on their rooftop pool as a way to celebrate the Sony Ericsson 2008 Open in Miami Beach. Yes. Play tennis onto of the pool.

Here's a video of the match which is actually very cool especially the aerial views of the Gansevoort's rooftop. We also got a kick of the water ball boys.

Stayed at the Gansevoort South yet? Let us know how it went.
