St. Regis Hotel, San Francisco
Travel Blogs from San Francisco
We stayed on U.S. 101 for nearly a week and then ended up in San Fransisco. Charley, Elaine, and I stayed at the St. Francis Hotel and spent out days at bars and restaraunts on the North beaches. Before we left we checked Charlie into a kennel and headed toward Monterey, California afterwards.
... we had some time left so we got to hop back in, drop our luggage at the hotel then navigate the one way streets to find a fuel station. That done and check in complete, we decided to head out to a famous local burger joint for dinner, Pearl Deluxe Burgers, which was super yummy. Then we just headed back to unpack and enjoy sleepy time. The next morning (Thursday 29th) over breakfast, I managed to see that the only day forecast for clear weather the rest ...
... 8pm and called it a day.
Having done so much yesterday, today we focused mainly on our trip to Alcatraz Island. We walked all the way up the Embarcadero to our boarding gate for the Alcatraz Cruises boat at 9.10am. Absolutely starved and not expecting they'd serve any food or drink on the island, we got a chocolate swirled croissant and orange juice on board the boat.
12 minutes across the bay water and we disembarked at Alcatraz Island ...
A slow wake up aided by our bodies still being on Alberta time which is a bonus for our mornings. Off to the coffee shop, Black Point. I was already a little territorial because the one customer was sitting at OUR table! Hmmpft.
We then headed off to Alcatraz Landing for our 1030 am departure. Haylee was scared to go on the boat because she has seen on the news how boats sink. I am feeling like I was just crowned with Parent Of The year award because she must have ...
... Captain we've ever come across. Always to be seen around the ship, happy to pass the time of day. He was even at the tender boats first thing in the morning when we were going ashore in Nicaragua. He has a great sense of humour, which can't be easy we British are hard to please. Announcements are made throughout the day from the Bridge informing us of any dolphins, land or shipping of interest. The Captain is being exchanged in Hong Kong so we hope the replacement is as ...

Historical Traveler Reviews St. Regis Hotel, San Francisco
The St. Regis San Francisco offers perhaps the very best accommodations in the city. I have stayed at several others including the Four Seasons, W, Mandarin-Oriental and the Ritz-Carlton, and the rooms at the St. Regis are by far the best.
World Class Five Star Hotel
What's not to love about this place? I stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. I didn't even want to leave my very luxurious room to explore the city! The overhead dual shower was a near orgasmic experience, and the flat-screen in the main room and bathroom were top of the line. The touch screen computer by the bed put the experience over the top. With the touch of a button you could turn all the lights on or off, request maid service ... even raise and lower the shade and get information on local attractions. The spa was amazing and made you feel very relaxed. Service at the hotel was top notch and everyone was very friendly and accommodating. No doubt it is very expensive, but it is an excellent value for the money.
Beautiful and elegant St. Regis
We arrived at the St. Regis in SF very tired from a long flight from the east coast and were immediately rejuvenated by the beautiful hotel and fine service from the front desk. we were upgraded 2 levels to a corner executive suite since our room was not ready and we were clearly ver ytired. The concierge was exceptionally helpful and after finding out that it was my birthday sent up a beautiful cake with candles and all. The bar and restraunt were excellent, attentive, efficient and beautiful. I would highly recommend this hotel while in SF. BTW, the location is great for shopping, walking and eating.....
My wife and I spend New Year's eve in the 2 months old St. Regis hotel. From the moment we drove up to the hotel to our departure, we enjoyed the friendly staff, good food, and great modern amenities.
When you pay $51.00 for overnight parking, $71.00 for breakfast for two (in the dining room; room service, we were warned, would be forty-five minutes in coming), and sleep in a Grand Deluxe Park View room priced at the same level, you expect certain basic amenities. A decent-sized closet, a coffee maker, and more floor space would all have been welcome. And while motorized drapes and flat screen TVs are diverting, at the end of the day you want a good night's sleep. This is what you don't get at the St. Regis, where the cardboard thin walls transmit every hallway noise with perfect audio fidelity. Especially annoying are the loud chimes that announce the arrival of an elevator. Even five doors down the hall from the elevator bank, the din is penetrating enough to waken a tired man throughout the night. Of course I could have asked the 24 hour "butler" for ear plugs...
My wife and I stayed in the executive suit, which included a corner "lot" (lots of windows), a king size bed, flat screen TV, 5 DVD-disc changer, stereo surround sound and a marble bathroom. I signed up for the holiday package, which included $40 for breakfast served in the room.
We're San Francisco locals and stayed at the new St. Regis for Thanksgiving as a special treat. It was well worth it!
Stayed at the new St. Regis hotel for one night. Beautiful hotel with exceptional service. Checked in around 5 pm and was taken to our room on the 18th floor by our butler. She explained everything in the room to us. Yes, it is a very high tech room. Almost everything is controlled by remote, even the roman shades. Great flat screen tv, both in the room and a smaller one in the bathroom. What a unique bathroom! Individual floor to ceiling glass doors for the toilet room and the shower. The shower had a shower head that came down from the ceiling and one from the wall.
I travel to SFO every week and am a Four Seasons regular, excellent location but getting a bit blah!!
A charming hotel, great value
I recently stayed 3 nights at this hotel and it is very nice- great staff, very nice rooms decorated in a "boutique style" and quiet. The windows do open but when they are shut, it is very quiet. It is right in the heart of the theater district and very accessible to mass transit. I thought it was a great value in a great location.
