Historical Traveller Reviews of The St Regis Washington Hotel
Things that could use a little work: 1) hallways echo, and the noise of closing doors is enough to wake you up at night. They need to figure out a way to have the doors close softly, or to add more sound absorption to the halls. 2) Parking charges of 40$ push the limits of acceptability. This feels like gouging a bit. Happy to spring for 5$ cokes, but the $40 goes too far.
Otherwise a memorable stay. A top quality property, staff and brand.

The St. Regis in DC--A Regal Experience!from MLtravels
The St. Regis, beyond our expectationsfrom complexions
Great location and difficult to faultfrom KillerUK
The rooms were of a decent size with reasonable sized bathrooms. The walk-in shower was fantastic after a hot day doing the sights. The rooms were of the standard expected for this class of hotel and I couldn't fault them on any grounds
I travelled with my family and the confirmed connecting rooms for the children was another plus.
The check-in staff and concierge team were very helpful and I couldn't fault any of the restaurant suggestions.
The only down side was the limited inhouse dining (the restaurant is being renovated) and were it not for that I would have given it maximum stars. I wouldn't hesitate to book this hotel again if returning to Washington
Beautiful, Elegant, Outstanding Service!!from Howardite
From the moment we pulled up to the building to check in to the time we drove away after checking out it was fantastic. The lobby is classy and inviting. Lemonade, tea and soft drinks are in the lobby early in the day, and wine and soft drinks in the afternoon. You can sit there and have a pleasant chat with a companion or with other hotel guests.
We have never experienced a more pleasant and accomodating staff! Every request and need was quickly attended to with graciousness and smiles. You don't even get your own ice: make a call and a "butler" almost immediately brings it to you in a crystal ice bucket, even several times a day. There is 24-hour room service and a 24 hour concierge service.
The room was great. While not huge it was a decent space, tastefully decorated and with a Tlarge, beautiful chandelier over the bed. While there was no tub, the shower was HUGE--probably large enough for 4 people--with both a hand-held shower and a stable over-head shower. The piece-de-resistance was the "magic mirror" that is actually a t.v. , with a remote control. There is a phone in the bathroom, and two in the bedroom, including one cordless.
We had a wonderful stay, and have recommended the hotel to all of our friends!
Efficient Service, Perfect Location!from BermudaBum
Valet service was quick and friendly, and "private dining" was super-
quick. I called for a pot of coffee Saturday morning, and it showed up less than four minutes later! And, upon returning to our room a little after midnight, I placed a breakfast order hang-tag on the door, for 7:20 the next morning - At EXACTLY 7:20, we got a knock on the door.
We would certainly have liked a tub in the room, but, hey, it's an historic building (beautifully restored and maintained) so sometimes you have to make some small compromises. The bathroom overall was very spacious, as was the shower enclosures, and the toiletires provided were top-notch (and the in-mirror TV was fun!).
The location can't really be beat - Two blocks from the rear of the White House, a block and a half to the red Metro line.
All in all, we'd definitely return to the St. Regis the next time we're in DC!
Expected Morefrom Polarwanderer
The rooms however are quite small. Our bathroom was cramped and did not even have a tub. The service was just ok. We booked a package and they could not locate it and still had trouble even after we showed them the reservation print-out. That being said, the hotel was just renovated and re-opened in January of '08 so everything is fresh. I much preferred the Sofitel a block away, better rooms and much better service.
Wow! What Luxury!from Get out of Dodge
All the rooms were gutted, and they have new furniture, deluxe beds and Italian bed linens (must be 1000-thread count), completely new bathrooms with natural stone in light greys and tans, rain-head showers, plasma TVs, and I could go on and on. Apparently top designers were involved in the redecoration and it shows.
Best of all, 95% of the staff has returned to the St. Regis, and the ones I spoke had worked anywhere from 15 to 19 years for the hotel. They said they were treated so well that they would never leave. And I think this is the reason the service is so good and the staff is so welcoming. We just love this hotel!
Only one glitch from the renovation. One 79-year old member of our group was assigned to a room with a combination bath/shower (our room just had a huge walk-in shower, and apparently there are rooms with separate showers and baths). Unfortunately, the bath was so deep that stepping into it was very unsafe because there were no grab bars to use. Even middle-aged folks might have difficulty. The hotel has been made aware of this problem and I can't help but think they will address it. Interior designers don't always get it right!
The bar hadn't reopened yet (will be in April) but the food we had there was delicious.
If you want to feel like a queen or king, this is the place!
When, you enter the hotel, you will be impressed with the decor, style and elegance. If you are not prepared to pay, you may not want to stay at the hotel.
The rooms are nicely decorated and the bed was comfortable. The gym was small, but furnished with modern equipment. I could not get a room with a breakfast rate. The restaurant offered haute cuisine and the food was excellent, but pricey.
The staff is very attentative and were professional.
I would recommend the hotel for any one willing not to be concerned about price. It would be an excellent honeymoon or lover's getaway. If you have a family it may not be the place for you. If you are looking for a weekend of elegance and old style this would be the place for you.
Top Local Tips for Washington
Try Wish I knew in advance - Made a res at Kinkead's because of it's reputation. Was fine overall, with awesome desserts though. Local friends told us about Hook afterwards - Right on M St in Georgetown, uses ingredients from sustainable fisheries and local farms only. Oh, well - Next time.
taking in the sights of DC without a rental car We loved accessing public transportation. We found absolutely no need for a rental car while staying within the city. We did learn however, that certain Metro stations are closed on the weekends and do have specific hours of operation.
