This was my first stay at a St. Regis and it totally exceeded my expectations. The hotel isn’t particularly outstanding architecture on the exterior, simple and clean. Inside, a world of marble detailing, art, fine fabrics abounds! The foyer and lobby bar are elegant and open, and SPG check in is fast and easy. I was upgraded to a Diplomat Room and it was one of the most comfortable, functional, quietly elegant rooms ever. I wonderful sitting area, universal swivel big screen TV for living area, BIG fully functional business desk (best I’ve seen) and lovely big bed! A walk in closet with drawers, storage, a safe, and bathroom to die for with an electronic toilet designed by NASA!
There to see the sights of Beijing, I changed my plans and did only one BIG event per day, framed by the buffet breakfast on the garden terrace, and return pool/spa/Jacuzzi/steam and sauna after. 18:00-19:00, the Press Room Bar is set up and offers free happy hour food AND any alcohol you need to sooth those aching feet! Traveling alone, and relaxed in my room, I ordered an Australian Filet and grilled veggies and a bottle of New Zealand white in my room. The hotel also arranged a day taxi for me to the Great wall and this driver knew every short cut, reaching the wall in ONE hour! He led me to the ticketing and got me started.
The hotel is OFF the noisy main drag and a short walk to Jianguomen Metro on Line 1 so a straight shot to Tian Amen and the Forbidden City. The subway is totally easy and only 2 RMB...to everywhere! It is NOT kind to those who have issues with stairs or wheel chairs of baby strollers!
The staff here responded to every question, request with the up-most speed, and my suggestion to replace SPG ads in the Press Room Bar TVs was…finally…met with a change to sports (thanks to new intern David from Montreal!). DO NOT MISS THE INDOOR POOL AND SPA! The concierge and front desk staff very helpful.
The St. Regis is top class so be prepared to pay more for food in the hotel. However, check with SPG offers like free breakfast (offered to me in today's questionnaire AFTER I returned...annoying!)...so ask for any upgrades, deals, or freebies...they are there to be had!
Please rate my review as helpful if it was!
