Business guests will find that they have everything they need in order to stay in touch with their office and clients as well, and they rave about the fact that they can even request extras like a copier/fax machine to be delivered directly to their room or suite.
St. Regis Guest Rooms and Suites
The Superior Guest Room at the St. Regis San Francisco is a modern masterpiece of good living. Decked out in crisp cream and white, this room will have you feeling more relaxed the moment that you walk in the door. With partial views of downtown and a large layout, a stay in any of these rooms is ideal for a weekend getaway or a short business trip. The bathroom features a 13” LCD TV and a spacious shower with both a rainfall shower head mounted above and a handheld shower head within easy reach so that you can have all of the luxury that you want, while also maintaining convenience.
In the Deluxe Guest Room, visitors are treated to all of the same amenities, but with the added bonus of a more dynamic view of the city. Since all of these rooms are located above the 6th floor, you can book a reservation in any one and know with confidence that you’ll be able to see a stunning slice of San Francisco anytime you open your window. The Grand Deluxe Rooms go as high as the 20th floor, providing guests with an even more dramatic and expansive view of the city. Reserve an Executive Premier Room for floor-to-ceiling windows that will let in tons of natural light and allow you to look out over the famous Yerba Buena gardens below.
St. Regis Suites
If a suite is more your style, the St. Regis San Francisco can set you up in some of the most inviting accommodations in the city. All of the suites have exquisitely comfortable king-size beds and limestone bathroom flooring. Marble counters with double sinks and oversize bathtubs and showers only add to the appeal of the hotel’s fully-loaded suites.
A stay in the Astor Suite will have you wishing that you never had to leave this place. The corner workspace has windows on either side, creating an exceptionally pleasant ‘office’ with a view for a telephone conference or to catch up on your email. There’s also a sliding door that will allow you to close off the bedroom for privacy, making this suite a great choice for couples and business travelers.
In the roomy Metropolitan Suite, guests can sit on marble window benches and keep an eye on the ever-entertaining streets below. The bedroom is separate and has lush carpeting, in contrast to the cool oak floors that make the living area so distinctive. The gray sectional sofa made of mohair and silk adds a sophisticated touch and makes a wonderful place to watch TV, plan your day or relax after a long day of sightseeing.
Each of the two St. Regis Suites in the hotel come in at 1500-square feet and are located in prime real estate, on the corners of the 19th and 20th floors. The suites are both facing the southeast, so they have unparalleled views of some of San Francisco’s most incredible skyscrapers, as well as the gentle hills of the Peninsula and the San Francisco Bay. The king-size bed faces three huge windows and is flanked on both sides by two bedside tables with modern reading lamps. In the bathroom, you can forget all about a shower stall and stay hello instead to a full shower room that is enclosed by a wall of frosted glass.
St. Regis San Francisco Presidential Suite
The pièce de résistance at the St. Regis is without a doubt the Presidential Suite, a 3200-square foot showcase that is stylish, welcoming and loaded with amenities. The living room has large windows framing a comfortable seating area and 42” plasma-screen TV with Bose audio in surround sound. In the dining area, there’s room for ten at the formal zebrano-wood table and a butler’s pantry with a refrigerator, wine cooler and dishwasher. Spiegelau glasses and Christofle flatware fill the cabinets, along with unique Wedgwood china featuring a pattern that was exclusively designed for the St. Regis by Vera Wang. There’s also a private office with another 42” TV and floor-to-ceiling corner windows that let in plenty of natural light and allow for views of Yerba Buena gardens. In the bedroom, original artwork from across the globe battles it out for your attention with the three huge windows that look out over the city. With all of these spectacular views in every room, it should come as no surprise that even the attached walk-in master closet in this expansive suite comes with a window. Finally, in the bathroom, guests will enjoy a large shower room and a bathtub with jets for relaxing at the end of your day.
Signature St. Regis Butler Service

If you want reservations for a show, limo or car rental or to hire a courier service, you can reach the St. Regis San Francisco Concierge Services day or night. Contact them before your stay and they will have everything that you need waiting for you when you arrive. Unlike at other hotels, the concierge staff at the St. Regis actively visits every nook and cranny in the city in order to see for themselves what might appeal to their guests, so they very often know more about what’s going on at the moment than even the most knowledgeable tour guide.
St. Regis Remède Spa
Remède Spa is a Forbes’ 4-Star facility and it aligns beautifully with the hotel’s theme of total luxury at every turn. Visitors are offered champagne, truffles and artisanal cheeses while they wait for their spa therapist, who will work with them to customize a treatment and beauty program based on their specific wants and needs. Products used are from Laboratoire Remède, one of the world’s top skincare companies. Once you’re done with your appointment, don’t miss taking a dip in Remède’s indoor infinity pool as you gaze out over the city.
In the fitness center, you’ll find the most modern equipment for getting in your workout, as well as a personal trainer to help see you through. There’s also a private pilates and yoga studio available upon request. The pool meanwhile, is a 50-foot heated lap pool that is open 24-hours a day for your convenience.
St. Regis San Francisco Dining options
Dining options in the hotel include Ame for dinner and Vitrine for breakfast and lunch. Ame is a formal affair, with a raw bar and a wide variety of seafood and meat dishes that are both adventurous and delicious. Meanwhile, Vitrine is a bit more casual, serving omelettes, salads and sandwiches in a bright and cheery dining room.
If you’re looking for the very best accommodations and service in the city, there are few hotels that can rival what you’ll find at the St. Regis San Francisco.
