The St. Regis Washington, D.C Review

The hand-painted ceiling in the lobby of this 1926 Italian Renaissance–style landmark sets the stage for the exquisite attention to detail that awaits in the handsome guest rooms—Pratesi linens line the beds, LCD TVs are recessed behind the bathroom mirrors, and personal butlers carry BlackBerrys, so while you're out you can email requests like "Please pack my bags." Just two blocks from the White House, the St. Regis attracts a formal business and diplomatic crowd, but families are welcome, too; children are issued F.A.O. Schwarz teddy bears and kid-size robes. The hotel's restaurant by Alain Ducasse, Adour, is one of the best in town, and the English-style bar, BlackBook, serves classic dishes and cocktails.

2010 Fodor's 100 Hotel Award Winner

At this elegant hotel in the nation's capitol, service reigns supreme. Personalized butlers pack and unpack luggage, arrange restaurant reservations and spa treatments, and make each guest feel like they're one of the many dignitaries or heads of state who frequent the property. Other amenities include 24-hour room service and access to the complimentary 24-hour fitness room.

    St. Regis Washington, D.C Review

    We just returned from a 5 day stay in Washington, DC at the St. Regis Hotel and there are no words to describe how outstanding the hotel is. The doormen and valets were very professional and most anxious to please. We were traveling with our 12 year old granddaughyter and although the hotel is very formal, the staff was so welcoming and by the second day, many were addressing our granddaughter by her name –which she loved. Prior to our visit, I called the Concierge and spoke with Jair as we were interested in a night tour of Washington on the evening we arrived. He asked several questions about our interests (definitely air conditioning rather than an open air tour in that heat) and he suggested Wadsworth Limousine and we were thrilled with his recommendation. Each time we asked Jair for a suggestion, he was right on the mark. The hotel is spectacular with a beautiful lobby, excellent dining room with impeccable service and delicious food. When we checked in to the hotel, we asked about an upgrade and Michaela said that the hotel was sold out that night, but she would see what she could do the next day. True to her word, we were lucky enough to be moved into a beautiful large suite with a connecting bedroom and the rooms were lovely with very comfortable furnishings. Our granddaughter just loved the TV in the bathroom mirror! The beds were so very comfortable and we loved the double sinks in the bathrooms. Also, having a scale in each bathroom was perfect to assure me that despite eating such delicious food, the scale said that ‘all was well.’ Each evening there was nightly turn-down service and the radio was set to a Classical music station which was a very nice touch. The Butler on our floor (Donna) was very anxious to please and we were treated to delicious snacks each afternoon which were most welcome after long hours of sightseeing. Michaela (Front Desk) was wonderful and always greeted us warmly – often suggesting things we might enjoy and inquiring how we enjoyed our day. When she was off duty, Abena was a delightful replacement. She, too, offered suggestions and sightseeing not to be missed. If you’re visiting Washington DC, definitely consider splurging and staying at the luxurious St. Regis. You will be VERY happy that you did!
