Booked the St. Regis for a few days get-away. It is in a good downtown location allowing one to walk to the waterfront, Pacific Centre, and many good little restaurants. Totally European in feel -- one walks into a small, utilitarian lobby; breakfast is included; and there is only one small lift (the lift was never really an inconvenience, though). The rooms, however, are spacious. Full living room and king bedroom in our case. Closet is adequate and there is a computer-sized safe and mini-fridge. Ice is available on floors two and four without having to call staff. All in all, very accommodating. Turns out it is in a historic building -- see the plaque by the front entrance.
Best feature, without doubt, is the staff. They are very friendly and most helpful. One security feature is that the lift only works after being activated by a room key -- if the staff behind the desk sees you come in the front door they step out from the desk and activate the lift for you. Small touches like that go a long way toward stating that they care that guests have a good time. Each recommendation for a restaurant turned out to be a winner. There was a Taylor Swift concert that weekend and Canada Day was the Monday -- they gave us helpful tips on avoiding the crowds and the traffic.
The Steve Nash Health Club to which hotel guests have access is terrific. One has to go outside the hotel into an adjacent building for the health club and for parking but it is only a minor inconvenience. The health club has full aerobics equipment (two floors); great weight room space; and classes available. There is a Starbucks at the hotel entrance, a Tim Horton's across the street so coffee is not an issue. The hotel is connected to the Gotham Steakhouse and to their own "bar"; both of which are recommended.
All in all, a little boutique hotel which rivals the big luxury chains in service. The staff is excellent; they alone are enough to make certain this hotel is recommended.
