This was the last stop on a road trip from LA to SF and it was the joint best hotel I stayed along the way (the other being San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara was incredible also). Stayed for 3 nights in the Astor Suite on a great package deal (3 nights for price of 2) and was very happy with my choice of this hotel over the other options (Four Seasons, Clift, Fairmont). The suite was wonderful, great views and totally relaxing. It was very big and felt like a private apartment more than a regular hotel suite. The staff at this hotel are what sets it apart though, they are so friendly and seem genuniely so, it's not forced like it is in a lot of places. The concierge was incredible (got us into 2 "fully booked" trendy restaurants) and also the Mojito's at the hotel bar were the best i've tasted. This was my first experience of a St Regis property and i'm impressed.
