Pleasant registration....upgrade to Lady Astor Suite and early check-in (platinum member). Suite is elegant and minimalist: large sitting area with just a sofa and small coffee table, side table and one lamp. Looks great in the daytime, but the one small lamp is so weak that you can't read anywhere in the room at night. Couldn't even eat rooms service breakfast in sitting area in the morning because it was too dark.
Only hotel I've stayed in where there is no notepad and pen or pencil by the phones. More minimalism? Only stationery was one note card and one envelope. Had to use them for making notes by the phone.
Two nice, big plasma HD TVs, but none of the channels are in HD. (Lowly Sheraton at SFO has HD channels!)
Room service continental breakfast cost $30, but pastries didn't taste freshly baked. Called to have them pick up the tray. After 20 minutes, I needed to take a shower so put the tray outside the door. When I checked out an hour later the tray was still there. (Minimalist room service?)
Twelve-foot ceilings in sitting area and by desk are nice, but nearly impossible to open and close curtains completely using long, long plastic wands to move heavy curtains. Ended up getting behind sofa and pulling them aside hand over hand. (Minimalist curtain controls?) Shades in bedroom were, thankfully, motorized.
Butler service also minimalized. Never saw one. I've stayed at five other St. Regis Hotels and always had a butler show up during or just after moving in to describe services and explain room equipment.
No coffee/tea maker in room. Assumed that just having a cup of coffee would incur room service charges.
Broadband is fast. ($14.95/day charge) and room was very clean.
The suite looks like something out of "Architecture Digest," but it's better seen in a magazine. Next time in SF, I'll book another hotel.
