My husband and I stayed for 3 nights during a conference. Hotel was very lovely, clean, well kept. All the employees were very attentive and really seemed pleased that we were there. Housekeeping was very thorough, new linens each night. The pools were heated, so I was able to swim each day, even though the air temps were only in... More

This place is not only beautiful but classy! The service is amazing. My husband and I have been three times by ourselves and this time we took our children. They had more fun renting wetsuits and boogie boards than at Disneyland! The service is AMAZING!!! My husband left his TAG watch in a chair by the beach and they found... More

Spent a week at the St. Regis for business. Beautiful location to work 18 hour days! I couldn't complain about a thing. The service we received was amazing--hats off to all the hotel staff. Sunsets were something to see!

I spent 8 nights at this hotel in a very nice suite. At first glance and walking through the hotel and property, you definitely get a feeling that it is a top notch property. The problem is that it has no soul - no feel to it. It is cold and sterile. The majority of employees walk right past you... More

My visit was short, and it was a conference. But the service and professionalism at every level each day astounded. The front staff, reception staff, pool staff, wait staff, housekeeping ….there seemed to be nothing that was any trouble. The coffee shop was an oasis for this Australian, the front bar looking over the Pacific reminded me of views in... More

My husband and I live in Los Angeles and wanted to get away for the weekend. We were looking for something that was within driving range, but would feel like we were on vacation. We chose the St. Regis and it did not disappoint. As Starwood members, we requested early check-in. Upon arrival, our room wasn't ready, so they offered... More
