A $27 million renovation in 2008 by NYC’s Alexandra Champalimaud & Associates lacquered even more luxe onto the 258 rooms and suites: modern Chinoiserie decor in copper and gold tones, polished woods and richly textured fabrics, marble bathrooms, fresh-cut flowers, and in-mirror LCD TVs. Round-the-clock butler service comes standard, but sporty perks like an eight-lane bowling alley, billiards table, squash courts, a gem-box of a glass-enclosed pool, and rooftop putting green/driving range are anything but. If you’ve clocked out on Chinese food, restaurant Danieli’s offers Beijing’s finest take on Italian food.
In the Area
Nearby Tiananmen Square and The Forbidden City may offer serious sightseeing, but pedestrianized Wangfujing Dajie, Beijing’s oldest and most famous shopping street, and the picturesque hutongs that branch off it present a crash course in Chinese culture that harkens back to the Ming Dynasty. Today over 280 odd stores from swanky relics (Shengxifu hats, Wuyutai tea) to flea market-style finds cater to the tourist trade. Set down a picturesque hutong is one of Beijing’s most charming restaurants, Dali Courtyard. A daily set menu lets you taste your way through expertly cooked Yunnanese specialties in a tree-lined courtyard ringed in Imperial-style walls. Feeling fearless? Wangfujing Xiao Chi Jie “Snack Street” offers pan-China street food with everything from Sichuan dumplings and Cantonese seafood soups to starfish, snakes and scorpions served on sticks. For a window into modern Beijing, spend an afternoon wandering through 798 Dashanzi, a complex of art galleries, cafes and boutiques carved from a factory district that once produced electronics for the military.
How to Get There
Each time I stay with St. Regis Beijing, I feel like going back home, even from the moment of checking in. The property has always offered me the best and never let me down during previous visits, exactly same this time. From room decorations, food, swimming pool, to concierge and butler (helping me quickly buy cable in the midnight), every espect ensures that you are at your real home.
Specific credit to Stefan - his best in class services, efficient and considerate communications were really impressive. Will definitely come back again with such good quality staff.
Wonderful experience at the St. Regis Beijing. The staff is terrific. The rooms absolutely exquisite; you might need a degree in engineering to figure out the bidet, but it's fun!
Breakfast was unbelievable, can't imagine what more could have been made available and the ambiance was superb.
Then in early evening they offer a spectacular happy hour....this is an "old school" style hotel that does everything right. If you stay here you will be delighted.
This was my second stay at St Regis Beijing and I chose to come back because:
1. It has a super nice spa
2. Excellent customer service. Makes you feel at home.
3. High quality breakfast
4. All over all, an extremely nice hotel.
Stayed here after a pause of some years as the financial district has now its own hotels. St Regis is still a great hotel and close to the diplomatic area. I had some kind of an upgrade to a small suite, very nice and comfortable. Only regret was that the delicious-looking welcome chocolate I had kept for my evening tea, was taken away by the bed turn-down crew before I got to it. One strange thing we remarked though: all fruit we tried, in the lobby bar or room service (watermelon juice, fresh strawberries and blueberries) looked great but had zero taste. So don’t bother for the fruit but otherwise you will be very comfortable at the St Regis.
I stayed here over a weekend and was totally impressed with the hotel and staff. Not only is the hotel within walking distance of a shopping center but conveniently located for catching taxi's or private taxi services. The butler service was awesome. During the high contamination days (which is very common this time of year) they provided masks for everyone to wear. Rooms were very nice and breakfast service tops. I definitely would recommend this hotel
