Best hotel I've stayed at

This hotel is absolutely perfect. The service and staff were over the top helpful and nice. The hotel grounds itself were also in tip top shape. My only complaint would have to be something that is completely out of the hotels hands... the other guests. Full of whiny rich people who like to complain at any chance they get.

terrific hotel ideal as a base for the Los Angeles area

This hotel fully lived up to expectations, from the friendliness of the staff at Check in to the knowledable concierge staff the stay could have not gone better. The Hotel facilities and food were excellent, with two pools, one for families and a less congested one. We will return in the future.

It use to be better!

This is not my first stay in this hotel. It was always great experience except the restaurant. I felt that the service was average. This time we went out for dinner. This time I travel with the family. My doter had separate room and the magnetic card key stopped working on the second time. The security opened the door quickly. The second key also stopped working shortly and again we had to call security to open the door with the request to bring new set of key. They came quickly to open the door but didn't bring the key! All of that was within one day. The restroom on the beach was dirty and didn't have the toilet paper. For the 5 star hotel it is not acceptable.

The St. Regis is all it claims to be.

The hotel gives nothing but topflight service. The staff is friendly and polite. No one shows they are having a bad day. You are made to feel you are truly important to them. Wonderful experience.

Go to Laguna Beach and stop at Cliff Drive. You can walk along the edge of the cliffs on walking paths to enjoy the views of the ocean.

All ready to go back!!!

We had a wonderful time at the resort. When I first looked at the layout of the resort I thought that the beach was too far but they provide transportation from the hotel to the beach through the golf course. Once you are on the beach there is an excellent restaurant for hotel guests only as well as lounge chairs, towels, showers ect. It was wonderful. The views of the ocean were outsanding. I generally do not care for buffets especially brunch but I was so pleasantly surprised with the quality and exceptional flavors that they offered at the Sunday brunch. The restaurants were not formal. I would have liked to have at least one restaurant where people actually have to dress up a little and make it a bit different from the ordinary but the food made up for everything else.

Make sure you actually go to the beach. It is a great opportunity to get there and enjoy being at the beach without the crowds and with high level of service.

Great location,

The location of the hotel is simply put, beautiful and the amenities are world class. The only drawback for me was for a hotel at this price range the service was not up to the standard.
