Wow, the pricey room rate is just the beginning! This is a very expensive hotel. Expect to be sticker shocked if you take anything from the mini bar ($15 for a bar of chocolate) or watch a movie ($18!). Breakfast is about double the price as what you would expect at another luxury hotel. A room service salad is $30 plus 21% gratuity and additional service charges.
Given the St. Regis is a very upscale hotel, I was shocked that there was a group of loud, late night partiers down the hall screaming and drunk. I had to call security twice: once at 2:30am and once at 10am the next day. I found it difficult to fall back asleep after the late night disturbance. Also, even though I was on a very high floor, I still heard a lot of street noise, especially when the local bars closed at night.
Overall, I can't see myself returning. I just didn't find it to be good value for what I paid.More
