My wife and I stayed at the St. Regis for 5 days as part of our first trip to Vancouver. All in all, the experience was excellent.
The room itself (including the bathroom) was clean, spacious and modern. The staff were incredibly helpful, very capable of providing directions sights and recommendations. One member of the staff even dug into his own pockets to help us make change for bus fare. Other great perks were the location (just one block from the metro), free local phone calls (amazing in this day and age), and free wifi.
The breakfast which was just o.k., mainly because some of the wait staff are not good communicators. (Example, my wife asked for TWO fried eggs, "over-easy." The waitress asked what that was and we (assuming that perhaps fried egg terminology was different in Canada than the US) explained that it means to flip the fried egg over halfway through cooking so both sides of the white are cooked and the yolk is cooked slightly. Her response, "oh, that's called a fried egg." She returned a few minutes later with one fried egg, over hard. Go team!)
Breakfasts aside, the stay was just about perfect. The only other thing that could have been improved is that the low-flow showerhead was very weak -- the kind that requires you to rise off one inch of your body at a time.
But in the grand scheme of things, the St. Regis is one of the best hotels of this class that we've ever stayed in. Would definitely go back and would definitely recommend it to our friends.
