Reviewed 10 October 2014

This is an ocean view hotel, so I was surprised to find myself mesmerized by the night view of the hotel itself, the turquoise brilliance of the pool and the Pacific-facing colonnade just beneath our suite. During check-in, I was pleased to find I didn't even have to ask about luggage, because the bellman had it all ready to go,...

This is an outstanding resort facility. The architecture is spectacular and the service matches the beauty of the facility. We had on ocean view on the first floor with a nice terrace outside our room. The room was well appointed and soundproof. Everything we needed was provided and the staff was both friendly and efficient. The automobile valet service was...

I had a recent 3 day stay at the St. Regis Monarch Beach and it was nothing short of AMAZING. We were celebrating our anniversary and birthday celebration as well. From the moment we were greeted at the hotel to checking in to our beautiful room we were so impressed with all the thoughtful details. A shout out to Ariel...

I stayed last summer for a meeting I was attending in late June. I had only stayed there one time previously and that was to attend a meeting (and with a scholarship which paid for that trip). That previous visit was in about 2001. My memories of that trip: It was the most beautiful hotel I had ever had the...

The in room dining manager is a goddess from Australia. I ordered specialty items I simply wanted that they weren't serving and she produced them free of charge with complimentary chocolate truffles as an apology for the wait time (which was not long at all). She treated me like a King and went far beyond my wildest expectations, in a...

Wifey and I booked the St. Regis as part of a short break to California. For you to calibrate my review, I guess I am a "discerning" traveller since I spend 150+ nights per year in five star hotels. The hotel is nice - not great, not bad, nice. Rooms are ok (I am from the Middle East so I...

Very nice rooms and grounds. The housekeeping is first rate though the bed was too soft for my taste. The $25 per day wifi fee was enough to have me access wifi only from complimentary public spaces. The pool area and grounds are breathtaking. However, finding ones way around the hotel was a bit like walking through a maze. If...

This was the second half of a trip to California to enjoy the weather and the golf. We stayed in Santa Monica and that was an amazing experience. However, upon leaving Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica and driving down to Dana Point and trying to check into the resort began a horrible experience with staff. The front desk...

The staff were all amazing--friendly, top-notch customer service! The grounds were impeccable and the facility reminiscent of a Mediterranean oasis. We were very fortunate to have experienced how the 1%-ers live--LOL--on a paid business conference weekend. The rooms were large and bathroom featured a deep tub, like the Japanese wooden tubs, that, for my size, I could've been diving in...
