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.
... back to San Fran. On the way we stopped to refuel - Sarah used the Zipcar credit card, apparently this is all part of the membership and you do not need to pay for fuel unless you travel more than 180 miles in twenty-four hours. Max navigated, with the help of his iPhone and Google maps, and we made our way back to Chinatown - we surely know this area well by now! We had been recommended to try a restaurant called House of Nanking; Yvonne and Max ...
... and there and are so huge). Katie was our photographer for our trip so she took a bunch of photos which I will add. When we finally arrived in San Fran and at our accommodation there was only one car park left and it was next to two really nice motorbikes, so was a tad worried I might hit them while reversing as it was such a tight spot but all good no damage to anything. Bags up to room and then walked 200 metres down the road to a little corner shop which is bigger the. ...
... famous music venues and brightly painted houses. Given more time in the city, I'd definitely spend more time here (my parents exchanged a look when I said this, just as our guide was saying that this area was full of "Deadheads" on drugs). We then saw the "Painted Ladies" houses, the Civic Centre buildings and Chinatown, to finish off the tour. All in all, I think I saw a cross-section of almost every San Fran district, and it was very nice to be able to spend some time with my ...
... the iconic 'Painted Ladies' houses.
We had a nice break in the park as the sun went down and decided that we would just meander slowly back towards downtown to get our train. We wandered back in the direction of downtown talking about various things when we suddenly we got a whole different view of this city. I do really like this place and I would definitely come back to San Francisco, but this evening resembled more of a nasty and dangerous place than we had been ...

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.
