"Half the price of a St Regis, you get 3/4 of a St Regis."
I say it is half the price , the truth is I only spent about £100 for one night for an executive room( this is very rare as a lot St Regis do not offer Executive option) . So naturally breakfast is included and what a breakfast it was! One of the best I ever had with lots of options and everything is top quality. As for sleeping, the rooms are very tidy and has very classic decor if not a little old fashioned. A turn down service was provided with chocolates which was expected. Service wise , all were very eager to help but lack warmth , it felt little robotic in a way but all the details were looked after. The executive happy hour is on the top floors but rarely any view, although the good and wine are of good quality but it is rather limited. Would I stay there again' Yes I would definitely as it is great value for the money . But for the name it just lacks a little bit than some of the more polished St Regis properties. Room: 4/5 Service :3/5 Breakfast: 5/5
"High quality with next level service"
This is high quality hotel. Service is next level. Nothing is too hard or a hassle. My Butler was very helpful and always available. The offer of pressing 6 garments for free was a real plus for me as business traveller who does not enjoy ironing! The invite to the 18th floor for complementary drinks until 10pm was also appreciated, saving me a hefty minibar bill. Little extras like this make you feel special and well looked after. The hotel and rooms are a more classic style with a real focus on luxury. No cutting of corners or mod con gimmicks, just old school class. In summary my stay was perfect. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this property again in the future or recommend it to fellow travellers.
"Elegance and comfort"
We had a fabulous experience during our stay. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Fitness facility and spa are world class. The breakfast buffet was outstanding! Polite, discreet staff, great location. I'd absolutely recommend this property to anyone who wants a real first-class experience for their Beijing stay.
"Lap of Luxury; Never Wanted to Leave"
This was my first trip to China, and I was not exactly won over. The air quality, the shoving in line, all the spitting... it was a little much for me. Staying at the St Regis afforded an elegant oasis where I could reflect and regroup after each culture-shock filled day. I was upgraded to one of the Diplomat's Suites, photos below. Massive and very comfortable in all regards. I used the Butler Service on several occasions, and ordered in from room service as well. All the staff were very friendly, efficient, and full of smiles. English was not a problem. We used the Iridium Spa for massage and sauna, the hot tub and health center. The Executive happy hour each evening was such a bargain! Lots of yummy little hors d'œuvres and unlimited wine and well-drinks. The hotel is a quick walk from the No. 1 Line Jianguomen Station, but the staff were also always able to get a taxi quickly. Breakfast was huge and delicious. The two little disappointments were the restaurant, Danieli's, which is a poor experience, and the lack of other people in the hotel. Must have been a quiet time of year, but it was rather desolate at times. Would have been even nicer if the atmosphere had been livelier. Travelers to Beijing may be shocked at how inexpensive everything seems, and this property was no exception. We paid about $250USD/night for the room, which is probably about a third of what one might pay for a basic room at the New York edition.
The hotel has a great character. It is elegant and exuberates an aura of history and prestige. It is well maintained and appointed. The room is nicely decorated and whilst the bathroom could have better lighting, it was peaceful and relaxing. There was a wide selection of toiletries and soft towels. The gym was enormous and overlooked a great looking pool. The regular restaurant had a wide selection of food, with western and eastern selections. The adjoining grounds looked nicely maintained and manicured.Clearly a 5 star property
