The St. Regis Beijing stands out among other hotels in the capital, both for the quality of its rooms, facilities and amenities as well as for the unique high level of service it provides its guests. We stayed in a suite, which was enormous, had an amazing bathroom, and felt incredibly comfortable and inviting (not like most hotel rooms, which can often feel a bit sterile). Each room has butler service, which is definitely a level above in terms of general hotel service, but which actually comes in very handy when trying to figure things out or arrange things around town, get things done within the hotel such as pressing, dining or transportation arrangements, or just to have a complementary coffee or tea in the afternoon. The butlers are extremely kind, very well informed, and always willing to look into something and get the information or answer you need. The gym and spa at the St. Regis are also excellent - the gym is currently being expanded and upgraded, but is still in full operation and completely usable during the upgrade/expansion. One of the most enjoyable aspects of the St. Regis is the Press Club Bar on the lobby level, where every evening there are complementary cocktails and canapes during the happy hour time period. The Press Club manager/host, Enri Dalti, is particularly impressive, remembering each guest by name and engaging each guest in a warm welcome and conversation. The rest of the staff follow Enri's example and provide a very classy, yet welcoming and relaxed environment in the bar's plush leather and dark wood surrounds. We ended up coming down to the Press Club each day for a drink either before or after dinner (or both), just for the warm company and good conversation. High tea at the St. Regis is also very well done and is a worthwhile indulgence. We did not try any of the restaurants at the hotel, choosing instead to go out and visit places around town, but I have heard extremely good things about each of the restaurants in the hotel as well. Overall, the St. Regis Beijing stands out among the upper tier hotels in the capital in terms of both amenities and service, and we will definitely stay here again next time in town.
