My best friend had her wedding here so we stayed for two nights. Luckily we had a reduced wedding rate and didn't have to pay the $700plus nightly rate to stay here. I can see why the rates are so high because the service is outstanding and the resort was very well staffed. We were greeted by friendly guys at...

My wife Deborah and I are celebrating our 33rd honeymoon at the St Regis Monarch Beach and enjoying every moment of it. The best part of our entire stay has been the incredible St. Regis friends that we have met while we have been here.

On arrival, we were immediately greeted with friendly Valet service and a lovely woman whisked our son away to pick out a sand bucket. Our room was spacious with a great view. The great points of the hotel included Valet service, Housekeeping (or butler service as they prefer), and the spa service/personnel. It ended there. All the restaurant/food services were...

I was very excited to try this hotel as it should have been phenomenal with the stiff neighboring competition of The Ritz and The Montage. Of course, it should have been great just being St. Regis, but it fell far short of meeting our expectations. We came for a 3 three day visit because our friends who live very far...
