I've done some traveling in my days, but I think St. Regis was the fanciest place I've ever stayed in - without being pretentious. The staff bent over backward to be helpful, the room was not only extremely well appointed, but also very, very clean, and the bathroom was phenomenal. The location was perfect, with some of the most amazing views I've seen. There was a cold snap while we were there, and even though the pools were heated, the air was much too cold to soak up some sun by the pool or ocean. I LOVED the spa. The only spa that rivals it that I have been to is the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC. And if I'm not mistaken the spa rates at St. Regis are a bit less than Grove Park. We ate in Motif, the main restaurant, and it was lovely. We also ate at the beachside restaurant, and the atmosphere was a bit more relaxed, and the view quite stunning. This was a business trip for my husband, and a pleasure trip for me. If you are a runner, bring your shoes because there are so many wonderful places to run. I kept stopping to take pictures!
