The St Regis was a great little getaway and has all of the luxury amenities you could want. They have an incredible spa with complimentary fitness classes, gorgeous grounds, excellent food (at Motif!!) and great service. It is truly all one can ask for. We were bummed that Stonehill Tavern was closed during our stay (Monday and Tuesday nights) but... More

I love staying at the St. Regis Monarch Beach whenever I am in the area on business or pleasure. Everything about the St. Regis is designed to make guests feel like they are royalty. My stay this past weekend proved this yet again!

We loved it!  Often, stunning properties have forgettable rooms.  Let's face it - how many different ways can you dress up a bed, bathroom and closet.  Our room at the St. Regis was equally as spectacular as the grounds.  We had a large bathroom tastefully clad in travertine with separate toilet room and soak tub.  The room was well appointed...

If your travel plans take you to Laguna Beach, the St. Regis Monarch Beach should be your choice. This is one of the most beautiful hotels you will ever see. The pool, garden areas and walks down to the beach are amazing. The restaurants are all fabulous and the staff is more than just efficient. My husband and I have... More

I've stayed at this hotel a dozen times over the last few years and it's a great hotel. The Sunday Brunch is the best in orange county PERIOD! I recently stayed at the Ritz and we enjoyed it better than this resort, the location is right on the beach for the same price. We were upgraded to a very nice... More

When I last stayed at the St.Regis the experience lacked the 5 star feel as my review attests. We were invited to have dinner at the Stonehill Tavern and decided to give the hotel another shot. I was rather apprehensive given my prior experience but two years later things are vastly improved. Check in smooth despite having a "trainee" handling... More

My husband and I were married here a year ago and returned for our first anniversary last weekend. We had a suite that was to die for! The butler service brought us french press coffee every morning and also pressed our dress clothes that were a mess from traveling. The grounds here are perfect, nothing out of place and so... More

Stayed 4 nights at the St. Regis in October and had a wonderful time. The room was impeccable, I had my own balcony and loved having the doors open to let the fresh air and sunshine in while I worked. The bed was super-comfortable and I loved the modern room design. The bathroom was amazing, with a tiled shower and... More

I attended a business conference at the St. Regis and was impressed with the hotel, grounds and golf course. The hotel is beautiful and upon arrival, I found a short wait (3 people checking in) and the concierge was right that apologizing for the delay. The wait was less than 2 minutes, but it was nice to have the attention.... More
