Los Angeles, California
Reviewed 6 February 2015

I'll start out by saying the hotel is very beautiful. It's a golf resort--- so bear that in mind. It can feel a bit stuffy so if you are looking for a secluded getaway this isn't your place but if you want to treat yourself to a 5-star spa/getaway weekend in a posh setting, this will work perfectly. The pool...

Last minute, I decided to take a quick holiday escape in between Christmas and NYE. A quick 45 min drive south of Los Angeles for my husband and 2 year old toddler. All in all, top notch service, room accomodations, and elegant dining options. We had a terrific room overlooking the pool and beach. (That would be my recommendation to...

My new "go to" in OC. Worth every penny. Breakfast in bed Christmas morning. Drinks at the private club beachside. Wow. And if you have an Amex Platinum card and reserve with them, dining credits and free breakfast really make the stay special. You don't need to stay across the street at brand RC to get to the beach. Shuttle...

I am a little bit late writing this review as I stayed over the Labor Day holiday. Overall the St. Regis is a beautiful resort, and I would probably stay there again, but there are a few things that I would note. The resort has a little bit of a cruise ship feel as it is very large and it...

My family and I absolutely had the greatest experinece we could have ever imagined. The hotel staff was very young but suprisingly polished. The St Regis is in a perfect location for family vacations and the butler program there is stellar!

This was our second time at the St Regis. It was just as wonderful this time. This is a truly gorgeous property. We really love it here. The service is unbeatable. As soon as we got there we walked along the paths down to the beach, wow! We spent two days hanging by the pool. It is fantastic. Wonderful pool...

I was lucky enough to win a sales incentive trip from one of the companies I do business with. This place was phenomenal. The room was first class. Everything from the linens to the toiletries in the bathroom were so luxurious. We only ate one breakfast there because it's very expensive but it was really good and the setting is...

I stayed at this resort for two nights and left feeling a bit let down. The property, the scenery and the setting are outstanding, Perched on a hillside, overlooking the ocean, you constantly see the palm trees and the Pacific as you walk by huge windows. My dining experience was limited to catered, conference-style buffets but everything was very good....
