I booked 6 nights using 12,000 Starpoints per night. This was my first stay at St Regis property and the service was excellent. As a Platinum member, I was able to get an upgrade to a Statesman one bedroom suite...sweet! Other amenities for Platinum is two bottles Evian water (other bottled water is free), seven pieces pressing, free local calls, one hour internet in business center, free in room internet and late check out.
The hotel is located in the embassy area and near the main road in Beijing and I love all the tree lined streets. Surrounding the property is 7-11, Starbucks, TGIF, Haagen Daz, Friendship Store and many other shops and restaurants. The subway station is 10 min walk. I suggest you request a room facing the embassies for the best view.
The bell service is great, they will wait while you check in and then escort you to your room. My room had beautiful star lily flowers and fruit bowl upon my arrival. The newly renovated room had very nice decor and furnishings. They brought up a dessert plate for me to enjoy!
24 hour butler service will assist you with your every need and bring you coffee and tea. If you wish, the butler will unpack and pack your bags, pick up laundry. Daily newspaper awaits you every morning.
The suite has a mini bar (which I requested they empty, so I could use it for my own snacks and drinks), hot pot for heating water for coffee or tea, living room with flat panel tv, desk with nice pens and office supplies, fax machine, lounge seating. The suite has separate temperature control for each room.
The bedroom has good lighting, flat panel tv with DVD player, vanity, walk in closet with in room safe. Loved the comfortable bed with nice linens. I think they change all the linens and towels every day, unlike other places that only change on request to conserve on natural resources (which I support).
The bathroom has tv in the mirror, separate shower and tub, scale and luxurious Remede toiletries. Also handy was the electrical adapter, robe and slippers. Other supplies in the bathroom were dental kit, sewing kit, shaving kit, cotton swabs and pads, shower cap and emery board! The toilet has a full range of controls, but I didn't venture to try!
After a full day of sightseeing, I loved heading to the indoor pool and whirlpool to relax. It is located in the adjacent building (next to the fitness center and above the spa) and very popular. Towel service and bottled water is provided . Also, a shallow kids pool and showers.
The business center has computers for use and was never crowded. The posted rate is 30 RMB for 15 minutes of use, but not sure how much they stick to this! The spa prices for Deep Tissue 60 min massage was 600 RMB (less than $100) or 6750 Starpoints.
My room included free breakfast buffet in the newly renovated Garden Court restaurant. The food was outstanding and they provide a wide variety including western breakfast with made to order eggs, fresh fruit and juices, pastries galore, cereal, yogurt, pancakes, waffles, toast, salad, cheese, salami and smoked salmon. Also, Asian cuisine, including dumplings, sushi, made to order noodle bowl and my favorite was the vegetable bao. The hours are 6 - 10 am.
The Skyline Lounge on the 18th floor was being used by a group during my stay, but is normally available from 1-9:30 pm for guests to enjoy a drink. Between 5:30 - 7 pm, there is Happy Hour with wonderful hor d'oeuvres, snacks and desserts.
Other restaurants onsite include Celestial Court (Cantonese), Garden Lounge in the lobby for afternoon tea and evening drinks, Astor Grill (steaks), Danieli's (Italian), Shunsai ( Japanese) and Press Club Bar. There is also a Tea House.
I had a great trip and recommend my guide, Lily Fuwa ( can give you her contact info). She's fluent in English, reliable, friendly and very knowledgeable. I also liked Beijing tours, they arranged private airport transfer and 2 days of group sightseeing for a very reasonable price.
The hotel general manager, Mr. Strayer, was exceptional and you will probably meet him during your stay. He is constantly checking to make sure everything is perfect and the guests are happy. If I go back to Beijing, I will definitely return to St Regis Beijing, for an excellent stay.
