I enjoyed the convenience of having coffee (and almond milk!) at the on-site coffee bar, and the service at the spa (I got a massage) was sublime. Very cute...

This is one of my favorite hotels anywhere. I have visited the hotel before, but recently stayed for 4-nights for a business conference. We were lucky enough to have unusually perfect and warm weather for November. Here is what I love about the hotel: gorgeous, dramatic layout, from atop a hill, with great ocean views from lobby, dining areas, bar;...

I have stayed here over four times. The best rooms are in the South building, facing the pool w/ a balcony, as high as possible. We've stayed at the far West end (closest to the Club House) but felt isolated as our balcony looked over the golf course and not the pool (where the "action" is) - this is a...

We came here to celebrate New Year's Eve so we could feel like we were international. The pictures were simply marvelous. When we arrived, the service was spot on! Employees were so nice and congenial. The property was gorgeous; my favorite part was down at their private beach. I've stayed in many hotels, some 5-Star, some less. St. Regis is...

This hotel is stunning - the rooms are gorgeous(provided you take one with a balcony) There are some that face the parking lot, and those are really not worth it.
