Just got back from a 4 night stay at the St. Regis. The resort is quite beautiful. The room was very comfortable and quite large. The bathroom was simply enormous. The staff was incredibly attentive and thoughtful throughout the stay, and put real effort into doing everything they could to make sure that my trip was comfortable. Aside from cold medicine, I didn't have to ask for anything the entire time. On her own initiative, Elle, my butler, had water, snacks and even tissues packed up and ready for me each morning when I went out sightseeing. She was one of the most pleasant and helpful hotel staff members I've encountered anywhere.
Location wise, the hotel is not in the middle of town, but I didn't feel inconvenienced at all. The Jokhang Temple and the shopping area around it were an easy 10 - 15 minute walk away. You'll need to drive to get to the other major tourist sites and to the business district if you're there for work, but it would be a quick ride and taxis are both plentiful and cheap in Lhasa.
Another thing to note is that there are a number of food choices available at the hotel and the prices are remarkably reasonable for the St. Regis. I don't believe I spent over $30 for any meal, and that included room service one evening. Something to consider if you're going to be out sightseeing all day.
All in all, I can't imagine staying at any other hotel in Lhasa. Tibet travel is tiring and physically demanding to begin with. The staff at the St. Regis took care of everything and left me free to focus all of my attention on the trip itself. That's definitely worth the price in my opinion.
