“They drew up at the best hotel in New York, the St. Regis, at the corner of Fifth avenue and 55 street. A saturnine middleaged man in a dark blue overcoat and black homburg came forward behind the commissionaire. On the sidewalk, Halloran introduced him.
“Mr. Bond, meet Captain Dexter.” He was referential. “Can I pass him along to you now, Captain?”
“Sure, sure. Just have his bags sent up. Room 2100. Top floor. I’ll go ahead with Mr. Bond and see he has everything he wants.”
“Bond, the collar of his new raincoat up round his ears, was missed as he came out of the entrance of the St. Regis Drugstore on 55th Street, which has a connecting door into the hotel.”
(Ian Fleming: “Live and Let Die“)
