As an Atlanta native who travels globally, I was left grieved by my latest stay with the St. Regis. It no longer resembles in flare or appeal what it once did. From all outward appearances, one could surmise their latest decorator not only lacks in elegant and traditional taste (which the Regis intially had) and instead has corrupted our fabulous new landmark with the notion that he/she is decorating for his college dorm or bawdy nightclub.
What was once a family passtime in a fabulously rich and warm tea area for visiting, has now turned into something short of a densly populated jungle meets Ryan steakhouse style seating. I was completely aghast. Black Roman columns now reside along with coffee tables not suitable for tea, but rather have the appearance of something out of a Buford Hwy flea market.
I am truly saddened that the Regis, has allowed such a lapse of integrity with regard to satisfying the guest as opposed to the decorator. My recent visit including a stay in one of their fabulously appointed Suites, thank God they haven't pillaged the appeal and warmth of my room. I opted to stay in my room and visit the pool to avoid the bright, nightclub decor of what used to be a welcoming abode.
I'm not sure if the new decorator/management team earned their undergrad in Botany, but judging from the sickly, cheap, college dorm like, palm trees in the foyer, it appears there is an affinity for over populating every square inch with something green. Appalling.
Thank God the service has not suffered the same alterations. If I wanted the W, I would have booked the W. Other than our rude maintenance man, our stay was met with impeccable customer service. I am simply positively disgruntled (obviously) by the choices that have been made at the expense of taste and elegance. Something I have always affiliated with a Regis. Not so in Atlanta any longer.
