Stayed one night. The St Regis on first impression is that of discreet and understated elegance rather than ostentatious opulence and luxury. Check in is very personalised rather than lining up in front of a desk in most other hotels. Our check in was however somewhat messy and we sat in front of the lady for almost 20 minutes as she tapped away on her computer apparently trying to locate a room even though we had confirmed reservations. We were reassured that the room was available and she was just heckling if the final inspection was done, though at one point we were asked if we had a very strong non- smoking room policy, to which I replied there was absolutely no compromise on that count! We were then ushered to the drawing room for complimentary coffee while she took some more time to get our room which was finally sorted in another ten minutes.
Whatever misgivings I had up to this point was instantly forgotten once we got into the room. Wow. It was a large room , with two large double beds and a sedan. There was also a mini alcove with your minibar. The adjoining bathroom was stunning, with a free standing traditional bath tub facing a second flat screen television set, with a His and Hers washbasins, and a separate WC and shower cubicle. The room was equipped with a fantastic Bose surround sound system which could be linked up to your iPod or iPhone . There is no free wifi or internet unfortunately. We took advantage of the complimentary butler service to order afternoon and morning coffee. Yu could also get your clothes pressed and shoes shined if you wanted. There is a complimentary wine and cheese tasting evening session at the Decanter bar which was a very nice prelude to venturing outside the hotel. The hotel is within walking distance to orchard road in one direction and the botanic gardens to the other, but we preferred to avoid the crowds and went instead to the closer Tanglin shopping mall.
There is a turn down service in the evening and a selection of Bernard Laurent chocolates left by the bedside .
Breakfast was served in a different ballroom as we were there during the Christmas season . I wood rate the breakfast selection as fair and not fantastic, as I have had better in other five and even four star hotels elsewhere. They have an Asian selection and I was disappointed with the porridge which was somewhat tepid as well as the coffee which tastes rather flat.
Likewise the gym was very average in my opinion, which left me longing for the one at the Taipei Gand Hyatt. The pool was also somewhat small but nice, with lounge deck chairs partially immersed in very shallow water bordering the main pool.
Check out was very efficient, and we were also given complimentary car parking.
