Generally, I like the St. Regis hotels although they are pretty pricy. This one is no exception. The ambience is lovely. The rooms spacious and the service excellent.
We booked just one night to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were upgrade to an amazing suite with a full living room and even a dinning table. The suite would have had great views if it was not for the construction site next to the hotel which is part of redoing the Modern Museum. But the noise from the construction of unbearable. I had to ask for a downgrade on the other side of the hotel. There room was much smaller but it was quiet. What I can't imagine is that they actually sell the suite and for about $1,200 a night. Hotel's should let you know in advance about this kind of thing. They are of course not responsible for the noise but they are responsible for informing their customers in my opinion.
Everything is very expensive but I knew that going it. But I do expect quality for that. The breakfast was really disappointing for instance.
Bottom line, I would go back but will be more careful about making sure I get a quiet room.
