    Amazing experience.  This hotel has it all and is the perfect getaway.  Start your evening off in the wine bar where they saber a champgne bottle every night at 6pm to announce the evening.  For all you wine guru's St Regis' wine director is Herve Pennequin - voted the 3rd best sommelier in the world!   Chill out on the patio of the wine bar, indulge in their small plates and extensive wine list.  Then mosey on over to their restaurant Paces 88.  If it is a pretty night, ask to sit outside.  If it is a little chilly, no worries - they have a fireplace.  Food was very good.  Service was a little odd, but good nonetheless.  The fun doesn't stop there - lounge by one of the best hotel pools in Atlanta - it is truly fabulous.  The service, of course, is impeccable and rivals The Ritz Carlton.  Very accomodating and willing to please.  A butler is provided on each floor of the hotel and state of the art surprises in the beutifully decorated rooms - like a tv inside the bathroom mirror so you can watch as you brush your teeth, etc.  Now that is being pampered.  It was heaven.  A nice little escape from the real world without having to even leave Atlanta.  Can't wait to return!

    My stay at the St.  Regis was short and swweeeeeet.  The breathtaking entryway makes you feel like Cinderella. The guest rooms are average sized for Atlanta with jetted tubs and plush beds.  Feels like youre sleeping on a cloud.  You may not want to get out of bed!  Haha.  The bar is cozy and quite the people watching scene for Buckhead.  The spa is small, but adequate.   My massage was relaxing and lived up to my expectations to make it the best massage Ive ever had in the ATL.  With all of the wonderful hotel options in Atlanta, I will surely be back!!!!

    OK, so I can't really review the "hotel" because we just went there for drinks, but I can tell you that if you have some time on a Friday or Saturday night and want some good people watching, go to the St. Regis and sit in the wine bar, the bar or on the patio. We saw some real characters ranging from sports stars to old eccentric Atlanta money to tacky, tacky new money. The hotel is really beautiful and the staff is very eager to please. Had a nice glass of rose champagne and hubby had a glass of wine. I want to go back and try the restaurant - Paces 88. Happy people watching!

    Great experience.  The place is absolutely gorgeous, and the entrance is over-the-top impressive with the long, twin staircases.  The pictures on the website do not do the place justice.  The rooms are exquisite, big, with comfortable furniture and sliders that open up the room to the outside if you choose, and sliders that open the wall beside the tub to the bedroom area so that you can watch TV from the bath, if you choose not to use the TV in the vanity mirror.  Not the first time I've seen it, but a really nice touch.

    Service is top-notch, as you would expect.  You are greeted with your surname at every turn (the staff makes it a point to recognize you by name), particularly when you ring the Butler service for your complimentary coffee and tea each morning.  This is a nice flair, although I will admit I saw right through it when my calls minutes apart to the Butler and Private Dining rang through to the same woman.  The only time I didn't feel utterly pampered was when my girlfriend and I had a bit of a 'Pretty Woman' moment when we were denied entrance to the hotel bar around midnight of the night we arrived, because we had sandals on.  They redeemed themselves the following day when the complimentary car service to the shops turned out to be a Bentley.  Their service was shown when, after they'd found out we became engaged on Saturday, we had a nice note, and a complimentary bottle of champagne with fresh fruit waiting for us.

    The pool was fantastic, and the attendant quickly retrieved two more seats poolside when we found everything taken.  Fresh ice water was delivered every half-hour or so, which slightly diluted the $15 cocktails we were having...  Its not a cheap place, so expect to put out a few dollars.  

    Remede, the spa and salon, was nice, but overpriced.  2 pedicures, a facial and a brow wax for $336.  

    Room service food was very good, again, as you would expect.  At $28 for a cheeseburger, it'd better be good.  I wouldn't say ridiculous though, given the status of the restaurant and typical room service prices, probably about what you would expect.

    Overall, the place is incredible.  Don't expect to walk out with a light bill though.  You get what you pay for.

    I've stayed here several times on business. Probably one of the best hotels in Buckhead (I'd take it over the Ritz). Beautiful lobby and pool area, great restaurant in house, walkable to excellent dining if Paces isn't your thing, happening bar (although perhaps a few of those girls are working). One of the better St. Regis properties. My only complaint is that while half the staff is very professional, the other half seem under-trained and make idiotic mistakes, such as losing luggage on its way up to the room and delivering a breakfast without any coffee in the coffeepot. These problems are always remedied quickly, but shouldn't exist in this class of hotel. Then again, it is Atlanta and not NYC, so the standard of service is a bit lower.

    This is a great place for a date, or just to mix and mingle with new people.  The ambiance is terrific.  As soon as you enter there are stunning floral designs, and decor, the lobby leads to stairs and a wonderful dining and bar area.  The outdoor patio is stunning, and the entire atmosphere is welcoming and inviting.  I attended for the bar and dining.  The food was delicately prepared and well seasoned.  The server was very attentive making sure to check back regularly before I ordered and after.  I love this place and would definitely go back.  I'd love to try out the hotel experience as well.  My only thought was that there was no music in the bar/lounge, and I think that would make it a six star experience.

    If you are in from out of town needing a place to stay and want to meet or people watch, this is one option to visit.
    They offer afternoon tea and a yummy menu in the dining room at Paces 88. A great restaurant for lunch more so than dinner and perfect for after work/happy hour at the Hotel bar.  Paces 88 offers a wine list that is extensive enough that you would be inclined to try something new or something old you haven't had in a long time.  I would dine here again just for the chicken pate, now this I'd rate a 5.
    The Hotel establishment in new, however no bells and whistles here. More on the lines of a good rehab trimmed with cheap reproductions. It looks good but when you get up close you can see what it's not. Still your best choice for accommodations in Atlanta.  For those who are all about service expect average at best.  This is not the St Regis we know and love in Prinecville or Dana Point.

    My fiance proposed here. While he asked for a suite and they told him one would be available and not to worry, come Saturday, nothing was available. Usually I'd ding a place for this, but the evening could not have been better. The staff was lovely and so helpful to him and us throughout the evening. Definitely a very special place in my heart and totally worth it if you're looking for somewhere to propose.

    Stay away from this hotel. It seems as they have no clue what they are doing. a joke of management team. Had a stolen item from my room, trying to speak to the general manager for days and he is not returning calls.

    Great people watching! My first trip was on a Saturday night, the bar and lounge area was very busy. The crowd could be described as upscale 30-40+ professionals. The decor in the main bar and wine lounge is some of the best you'll see in Atlanta. Nice spot for "cougar hunting" or a girls nice out.

    At St. Regis Atlanta poolside  as I write this review, EVERYTHING is five star...... The service, quality of the food, amenities, sleep accommodations... EVERYTHING ! Although we are locals who live about 20 minutes from the hotel,  my husband and I are VERY  frequent guests of the hotel. We are extremely loyal to the St. Regis brand as we are frequent travelers who visit St. Regis locations worldwide. The service is ALWAYS outstanding regardless of geography. However, Lonnie at the Atlanta location is one of the most personable and service oriented employees I have EVER met. His service is consistent and he always goes above and beyond to ensure your stay is most memorable. Less than a week ago we visited the Bal Harbour location in Miami. Though the service was spot on, hands down Lonnie's represents the brand so well the he should definitely be head of guest relations.

    Went and had drinks at the Wine Bar here and had a wonderful experience.  The hotel is beautiful - the nicest in ATL by far.  The staff is excellent and well informed.  The wine director Herve' really knows his stuff and goes out of his way to make your experience top notch!
    Can't wait to return!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We hit up the St Regis Bar after dinner on a Thursday night.  The bar was crowded but it seemed like a convention of bankers.  Most were in suits and then other folks there in jeans.  Pretty decent set up with an outdoor space with fireplace (we didnt venture outside).  Large bar on one side, high top tables in the middle and some tables around the walls.  Drinks were good and service was excellent.  Will have to try again.  Heard people watching on the weekends is enough to warrant a visit.

    I have to agree with S S on her review of this place...definitely some good people watching.  And since I am not from the South, watching the "old money" in action is quite interesting.

    I have to give a big thumbs up to the waitresses.  We arrived just after the kitchen closed at 11pm and both my female friends were very hungry.  With a slight bit of nudging, our waitress said she would see what she could do about getting us some food.  Voila...about 25 minutes later she presents to us two chicken quesadilla's with all the trimmings.  (What a complete 180 from the experience we had at Cellar 56 one week earlier...see my review.)

    A second visit is in order!

    After rave reviews by friends, my wife and I went to the St. Regis for after dinner drinks.  I was unpleasantly surprised by the size of the bar, although the wine bar seemed more spacious.

    Service was a little slow which was somewhat expected given it was a packed house.  What I wasn't ready for was the request to provide my credit card before my order was even delivered to the table.  I was surprised to see guests at adjacent tables were not asked the same thing.  Maybe some bad experiences with people of color?  Very strange and disturbing.

    Food and drinks were quite good and at the end of it all, I was happy to have visited but unlikely to be back anytime soon.

    I've stayed here a couple of times during trips to Atlanta for weddings.  This was not the preferred wedding party hotels but I would have to say I am very happy I stayed here.  So for this one I'm just going to list a couple of pros and cons below:

    Pros
    - Once you arrive you are surrounded by luxury, this place is amazing...the foyer, staff, room decor, and overall hotel decor
    - The rooms are very comfortable and come with a personal butler service.
    - They provide a car service for their guests.........(who wouldn't want to take a spin around the block in a Bentley)

    Cons
    - Valet/Self Paid Parking required at this hotel. (But that's what you get when you stay at a hotel like this)

    Overall this has to be one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed at and I have stayed in my fair share of hotels.  This is definitely my preferred hotel to stay in while I'm in Atlanta.

    Wow. I've never been to Johnny's Hideaway, but this place struck me as its upscale cousin. At 10 p.m. on a Wednesday night, it was filled with older "power" types and the young women who latch onto them.

    The only reason I ended up here was a friend of mine was staying at the hotel and wanted to grab a quick drink once his seminar in the ballroom ended.

    We met up on the bar's patio, which I must admit was nice. It had lots of seating and fireplaces that'll come in handy on those cool Fall nights. Crappy service and lots of cigar smoke chased us inside after not too long though.

    Having settled in the nearly empty Wine Room, my friend and I proceeded to have several drinks and catch up. Worth mentioning is the improvement in service that occurred once we came inside. Our server, Beverly, frequently checked in with us. And, as the place quieted down, she started chatting with us about George Carlin and what not.

    Still, as down-to-earth as she seemed, the whole vibe here was anything but. It was definitely a "see-and-be-seen" scene for the Buckhead set. That said, I don't see myself returning. But I'll give them three stars for doing a good job at what they do here. It's not for me, but I can see how it'd appeal to the crowd it attracts.

    We went to this bar thinking service and atmosphere would be pretty nice.  Wrong, wrong, wrong.  In spite of a sign saying proper attire was required, there were customers dressed like they were going to Taco Mac.  Service was probably among the worst I've had in Atlanta, and that's saying something, having lived and gone out here for 30 years.  The waitress got my drink wrong TWO times, completely ignored us the rest of the time we were there, and brought us someone else's credit card when she finally decided to bother with our bill.  I complained to the bartenders, and their response was that the waitress was the hostess filling in. Really , St. Regis?  You can't do better than Red Lobster on a busy night?

    Leave your car with the valet, enter and climb a large staircase, and *tada*... It's an upscale Johnny's Hideaway without dancing. Great people watching!

    If you're looking for something out of the ordinary, give it a shot. The patio and pool areas are really nice to lounge. Supposedly Thursday nights are the most happenin.

    *This review is strictly based on the bar scene not the hotel experience.

    Beautiful, beautiful hotel.  Stayed here over C'mas 2011 -- there was a fresh gingerbread house (kid-size) that smelled delicious in the lobby, along w/ a beautifully decorated tree.  The pool was frozen & converted into a skating rink and while it wasn't that impressive of a rink, it was still a really neat idea for guests & their children.  The tv in the bathroom mirror and sliding doors that opened from the bedroom to over the tub in the bathroom added first class touches to the room.

    soooo wonderful! we got a room here after going all out at the Paces 88 on several rounds of drinks and got a fantastic room on the 8th floor  around 3am. the view was incredible of the bar patio and we had a jacuzzi-ish bathtub as well as a separate shower with a removable showerhead!!! the toilet was in its own room too. oh and the bathtub was placed right at an entranceway to the bedroom. it was so fantastic! there was a chaise lounge and a desk workspace in the bedroom.

    valet parking is 15 for staying and free for just visiting the bar

    and there's TVs in the bathroom mirrors!! :)

    no coffee in the room but its better to have room service bring it anyway!

    best hotel in atlanta!

    as for the st Regis bar:
    leave your car in the valet, go in the front doors, go up the left staircase, go down the hall and through the dimlit doors, go outside and ennnnjooooy! excellent patio and the wait staff will come to you. fridays and saturdays are busy but clear out by around 12:30-1am. the other nights of the week are less crowded but you can always find a great seat at the bar inside or near a great fireplace outside on the patio.

    12-15 dollars per drink. very strong!!! be careful

    We really need some separation between the hotel and the bar.

    Just completed my Free Weekend Night stay earlier today from the 2nd quarter Starwood promo.

    Parked in the $15 garage behind the hotel.  Ended up costing $27 since we left for a few hours last night :/  Very convenient to hotel.  Recommendation:  Drive up to 5th or 6th level, then proceed to exit and park near the 4th Entrance.  This gets you to the side entrance of the hotel and walking by all the Old Money dining near that 88 restaurant and all the 20/30 y/o clientele trying to bag em a triple digit salary at the St Regis Bar.  

    Check-in was easy, altho no upgrade when acquiring about one for "a lowly gold member".  I did notice that practically every room on 8th level was full.  I had 806 I believe.

    Took advantage of a Concierge for the first time in my life, I believe.  Darius (I think that was his name... European I believe) helped out quite a bit, with everything from the Bentley to Aquarium tix, to a couple of spoons.

    Had reservations at Fogo de Chao (I splurged this weekend, for sure) at 6 and had Alou drive us there in the black Bentley around a quarter to.  Maaaaaan oh man was this an experience.  Super-nice ride.  $240k is a bit steep for my blood, tho!  He picked us up after dinner and took a few pictures of the gf and I standing by it when we returned.  

    Headed out to Lenox Square and Total Wine after dinner (stocked up on Oak Grove Merlot, Red Stripe Light, and Old Milwaukee Light :) ).  Came back with my blue and white Rubbermaid Cooler while walking between all the Old Money and just smiled.  Ohhh look at all you silly nits paying $15 for a drink while I've got a 32 qt with gallons of booze, en route to the room where I can soak away the night or chill out in my Scooby-Doos.

    The room was just incredible.  Never been in one that nice, before.  The controls on the phone and at the entrance to the room were just crazy-awesome.  Soaking tub was a nice addition, especially with the sliding mirrored panels that separate the sleeping area to with the HUGE bathroom.  And, what is this?  A TV IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MIRROR at one of the bathroom sinks?!?!?  Ohhhhh baby, order me one for home right now!!!

    Five minutes after arriving back at the room, Darius had our GA Aquarium tickets delivered.  We had him reserve us two just 10 minutes prior.  10 minutes after that, Butler delivered two spoons on some of that fancy-like cloth.  Spoons were for ice cream, just in case anyone was wondering :)

    Requested a wake-up call for 9am just for the hell of it.  Called exactly at 9am and was asked if we would like any coffee or tea.  I requested coffee, and had it delivered less than 10 minutes later on a nice tray with my Sunday edition of the AJC.

    I doubt I would ever pay $250 a night here when I can get others in the area for half that, but honestly, for all the amenities, it's not THAT bad of a rate for a weekend getaway and some spoiling.  :)

    My stay here started out a little sour. I had alerted them to what time I would be arriving, but the room was not ready when I got there. They asked us to get a drink in the bar, and they would come get us when the room was ready in about 10 to 20 minutes. Well...about an hour later the room was finally ready.
    We at least had a great time at the bar. The bartender was extremely nice and the man who runs the wine bar was down there trying out new drink recipes which he let us try. Drinks were an arm and a leg as expected.
    Finally got the suite which smelled like bleach, but hey at least we knew it was clean. Spent a while marveling at the bidet and the television that was IN the mirror. The turn-down service complete with slippers and robes was pretty fabulous.
    We wanted to go out to dinner so the hotel provided us a Bentley to take us and not have to get our car out of the overnight valet parking. Before dinner, we ventured over to the wine bar where they did their nightly sabering of a champagne bottle which was cool because I had never seen that before. The wine bar guy showed us around their wine room that they usually keep locked and he told us about some of the history of the St. Regis and some of the bottles and sabers in there.
    Later in the night we got room service - root beer floats with cookies. Only the finest. :-) However, each was like a staggering $12 each, but if you're staying at the St. Regis I'm guessing money is no object.
    The pool is absolutely gorgeous. The staff will come right over from their poolside bar, hand you a glass of water, and ask if you'd like them to bring anything else. I know the hotel also has a gym and a game room, but I didn't visit either one.
    Overall, I enjoyed the stay very much. The staff is really eager to please and a few of them are very funny and fun to talk with. I suggest not placing your own drinks in the mini fridge though - it's sensor activated and will charge you if anything is moved.

    I needed to plan a memorable night for a work event recently, so I put on my Prada's & made sure to dress super-cute that day, and pranced right over to the St. Regis.  A girl has to know where to go when it's time to pull out all the stops, and I was delighted to be in my favorite spot to plan this event!!

    First off, look up Roy!  Roy is the F&B manager and is phenominal to work with.  So positive and brilliant at coming up with show stopping ideas for a party!!  He and Brandon made this so much fun.  I mean, when every meeting you show up for starts with a glass of (good) champagne....a girl like me knows she's found her place in life :-)

    And the food catered from the chef......O---M---G!!!!!  Seriously, it was just great.  We even did a mini pino tasting as well as a single malt and cigar tasting.  And who knew that they make cute little mini cigars for us ladies to try?!  I didn't make it far, but mine tasted like vanilla candy on the outside...delish.

    Not to mention the famous bar scene there.  Probably one of the best people watching spots in Buckhead...if you can get a seat that is!  Go early and enjoy the champagne sabrage they do every afternoon at 6pm.  They even let me do it on my birthday, tres chic!

    Plus free valet, just don't forget to have it validated at the bar before you leave.  At Christmas, you won't find a more beautifully decorated place...and they even have ice skating that time of year!

    So the next time you have a party to plan (even better if it's on the company budget), take yourself over and ask for Roy....he'll take care of the rest!!

    I've stayed here a number of times and had great experiences each and every time.

    The valets and front desk staff are extremely attentive and willing to help you out. Service is prompt and courteous, with a staff member always ready to help you out. The rooms are pristine and very well appointed. As a SPG Platinum member I have always been upgraded to a suite upon check-in. The bar downstairs also has a really cool vibe to it with the rich wood floors and leather sofas.

    The only two downsides I see with this place are the cost for the valet and the in-house restaurant. I forget the actual valet rate, but it is steep with limited self-parking available. The in-house restaurant was a bit slow serving us brunch on the day of our departure.

    Overall, I highly recommend this place. Even if you live in Atlanta it's worth a weekend "stay-cation."

    Great hotel.  I would consider it, as someone else mentioned, in between the W Hotel scene and the Four Seasons/Ritz group.  A little more formal than the W and a little hipper than the old school Four Seasons/Ritz.  To give you an idea of where my hotel tastes lay:  if I can get a deal, I love to stay at expensive, unique places.  If I'm traveling for business and staying for a quick layover, I can do Hampton Inn Suites or whatever.  I wouldn't consider myself a hotel snob at all.  I felt like I had to qualify that because I'm not hotel specific- meaning I don't belong to any hotel rewards group, I travel frequently- seven to ten days a month, and I consider my tastes pretty average.  In other words, if someone's paying for me to stay at the Ritz, regardless of whether there's "a draft" or "blinding lights from the parking lot across the street", it's still pretty cool.

    I stayed here for my wife and my fifth anniversary.  We saw a deal through Amex and had a few points to burn and, as our other beach vacation options fell apart, we decided on a stay-cation close to our home.  I got reservations two days before and requested an early check in along with a room upgrade if possible.  I was told that I should call because Wednesday had been sold out.  They were sure that I could check in early but weren't sure if I could upgrade.  I called around 10 the morning of check in and was told everything, early check in and upgrade were approved.

    I arrived at noon to find out that I had been upgraded to the Caroline Astor suite (825).  Unfortunately, the room wasn't ready and we were asked to go to the bar and hang out.  The customer service was great though.  Not a big deal for me as I don't have anywhere to be or was I time challenged.  My wife and I went to the bar and had a couple of drinks.  The bar was nice, lots of places to sit and hang.  Pretty grand setting.  We had a couple of drinks and the front desk sent our room keys to the bar as soon as they were available.  I would say wait time was thirty minutes.  Again, not a big deal.

    The room was awesome.  A nice living area with an average, master sized bedroom, with a monster bath that had a deep soaking tub, a steam shower, and another room for the toilet.  All the bathing supplies were top notch.  TV's were in the mirror so that you could lay back (like I did) and catch the Braves game or whatever reality/teen mom/show tune abomination that suites your fancy.  The room really was great.  Not over the top formal but nice and upscale.  There was a balcony that was probably as large as the living room with Restoration Hardware patio furniture.  A really nice touch.  

    The pros-
    - located in Buckhead, within walking distance of some really great Atlanta restaurants and shopping.  Atlanta is not a walking town so, if you're a visitor, keep this in mind.  
    - if you can't walk, you can have the hotel's driver deliver you in the Bentley, up until 9PM.  That's early but it's a Bentley.
    - Thursday, the day we stayed, seems to be the happening social time in the bar.  People were all out on the patio drinking it up and being seen around 6 PM.  They had the vodka, the jeans, the untucked black shirts, the DJ, the whole bit.  If that's your scene, this is your spot.
    - It's absolutely beautiful.

    The not so great parts-
    -it's expensive.  I think the room we stayed in was listed somewhere around $513 bucks a night.  There were bath options that registered in at $2k+.  For that kind of money, EVERYBODY gets the happy ending.  If you're purchasing these services, my reviews are probably not for you....
    -The hallway noise coming into the room is actually quite loud.  There aren't Animal House style parties happening, but I could hear a few ladies having a chat about their day, which apparently went sideways.  I got another beer and ignored it.
    -I had an incident where I asked for more towels and ice, something you can never have too much of in my opinion, and it took about 45 mins.  I got apologies, but I can see where someone paying $500 might have an issue with it.

    The staff were outstanding even if we had a hiccup or two.  Everybody handled each situation with courtesy and I can appreciate that.  Overall, a B+/A- visit and a place a would most certainly recommend for anyone I know.

    BONUS tidbit- I'm guessing this might be the "it" hotel of the moment in Atlanta.  It might also speak to the vastness of the property- I believe that Justin Bieber and his lady friend were there at some point during our visit and I heard that Ryan Reynolds was there.  I didn't see them, just passing the word that you might sight some celebrities there.

    We got a receipt thanking us for our stay with all of our personal contact information on it. My husband called the number on the receipt to find out WTH happened, and the staff was incredibly rude. Laughing at us for being concerned that our credit information or identity had been stolen. Oh, it must have been someone else with the same name. Same name, address, email, credit card number? Even if it was a mistake entering the name in the computer, there's now someone else walking around with our information. We've never stayed at the St. Regis, and we'll be avoiding any of the Starwood Group hotels from now forward.

    BEWARE--who wants to stay at a hotel who is so callous with disseminating your information?

    And for the pessimists out there, no, my husband didn't sneak off there. We've been together all weekend with a sick child.

    This hotel is certainly a stunner--the best-looking hotel in Atlanta. The color schemes manage to be soothing but not bland. There's a lot of dark hardwood counterbalanced by white fabrics and crystal light fixtures, plus an emphasis on mineral green as an accent color.

    The rooms are exceedingly comfortable, with great beds and a chaise lounge. All the design elements are attractive. The bathroom is great, with a tub so deep you could hide from sniper fire in it. There's also a sliding door separating the tub from the room, so you can take a soak and look out the window if you want. The views aren't that great, though--the hotel rooms are all on the lower floors and it's basically just Buckhead buildings.

    Probably the best feature is the bar/restaurant area--there's the bar proper, the wine bar, and the Paces 88 restaurant all next to each other at the end of a hallway on the second floor that gives them a little distance from the comings and goings in the lobby. Design is also fantastic in the two bar areas--there's a huge mural of a phoenix over the bar plus lots of seating groupings. Pricey [$11.50 for a vodka tonic], but it's the St. Regis so you expect that. The Wine Room has lots of natural light [it opens onto a patio] and a more modern, California-feel design. Didn't actually eat in the restaurant proper, but did have the lobster cake sandwich with sweet potato fries served at the bar, and it was excellent.

    This was a quick trip, so didn't have time to check out the spa. There's a heated pool which looks nice, but there was snow on the ground so it was a little cold, heated or not.

    The only issue was with service, as others have noted. For the most part, staff were friendly and efficient, but there were a couple of major areas of concern. The first was the front door, where there were guys standing near the valet who didn't make a move to open the door as I approached. This is your first impression of a hotel, so if you're going to have door staff, they shouldn't just watch a guest walk up the drive and go inside. I was met inside immediately by another employee, who walked me to the check-in desk and got me water. That's a nice touch. The biggest problem was with the butler service. I called just to get some ice and mixers and the butler took the request. After 45 minutes, still no ice so I called back. The butler told me she had called the order down some time ago so she would call them again and check. I'm still waiting for my ice. The butler program is the St. Regis's signature deal, so it's distressing when it falls apart on something that simple. And there's no ice on the floors, so you have to call for it. [By the way, note to hotel companies--We really want ice on the floors. No one wants to have to call for it and wait.]

    Those things aside, everything about the physical property is top-notch and some service smoothing-out would make this one of the great hotels of the entire South, not just Atlanta.

    Last note about location--it's a two-minute walk from Nava, a fantastic Southwestern restaurant. However, it's a little over a mile from the Buckhead MARTA stop. So if you're taking the train in and not up for a hike, you may want to stop at the W or the Grand Hyatt, which are close to the MARTA, and catch a cab.

    I don't understand why everyone doesn't rate this with 5 stars.  This property is brand new.  The rooms and bathrooms are simply gorgeous.   So are the hotels facilities.  The bar is incredible, the lobby is pleasant to hang out and have some tea, the restaurant is stunning with the vaulted ceilings.  It feels like being in a European Chateau. This maybe one of the nicest hotels in the country - and I travel every week staying at 4 and 5 star places so I know my stuff.

    However those are the superficial things.  What makes this property really special are the staff.  They are the warmest and most welcoming people you could imagine.  They remember you and your preferences.  They go out of their way to please you.  And they will do almost anything you ask.  I really felt at home with them.

    If you don't like high service hotels, you may find the emphasis on service a bit overbearing.  However my advice is to stay here, enjoy the exceptional service and the breathtaking property.  It's the best Atlanta has to offer.

    Crowded, cramped, and uninviting. Took way too long to get our first drink from an unfriendly bartender.  I understand that the holidays are crazy, but that just means you should staff up and be on your game.

    I enjoy a nice drink at a formal bar as much as the next guy, but the cookie cutter clientele and uninspired service--no thanks. St. Regis hotels are top qual, so I'm disappointed they don't hold their bar here in Atlanta to the same standards.

    I've stayed here on two occassions and both experiences were phenomenal. If you are using SPG points to book your stay, the value cannot be beat (only ~20% more expensive to stay here compared to other Atlanta hotels that are not nearly as nice.) Both stays I had luck with getting upgraded to suites that were bigger than my apartment at home. The hotel very serene even during the Final Four weekend....it was nice to have an escape from the crowds at the hotel and lounge peacefully by the pool. The rooms are very well appointed (slippers, robes, bath salts, high end bath products, free water etc). The hotel staff was extremely friendly and gave us recommendations of what to do in the area. As a check-in gift for gold/platinum status, you get a $17 voucher for breakfast for each guest (note...don't order the expensive  tea/coffee at breakfast as this is free right around the corner from the restaurant. Do get the signature bloody mary, as it is delicious.)  The only disappointing thing was that there is an upcharge of $25 to use the Remede spa facilities.  Overall, can't wait to come back!

    I did a staycation here for my birthday weekend. It was a WONDERFUL experience.

    The place is quite impressive. I actually felt poor driving my Honda Accord up to the valet, but their service was five-star as well. The room was average size, but was appointed well. The telephone/command central had my name programmed into the LCD, there was a television embedded into the vanity mirror in the bathroom (but the reception wasn't all that great) and there are sliders that separate the bathroom from the rest of the room.

    I didn't find the bed to be as comfortable as the Heavenly bed-it was too firm for my taste. Also, high speed internet was $12.95, which is more expensive than the Westin/Sheraton. I guess the cables in the walls are platinum. :-P

    Would I return for another staycation? Perhaps. I almost felt like I was too young to be there...and I'm in my 30's.

    A classic Buckhead Bar scene.

    Heracles strengths: 99% sure half of the people here are there to see and be seen.  Bar snacks are great when you're drunk, and the drinks are strong.  Price point is also great, especially considering it's a bar located in the St. Regis hotel.

    Achilles heel: Very limited specialty cocktail menu (um, this is a bar, right?).  Quite crowded, and nearly impossible to get a bartender's attention.

    Aphrodite factor: This place is CRAWLING with Buckhead Bettys of all ages, and tuxedod men chatting with buddies in jeans and blazers.  It's fairly loud, so definitely not a good place for a first date, but it seemed to be quite the hot spot for those heading out after a wedding.

    Hermes rating: Our cocktail waitress was extremely attentive.  The only time we had trouble locating her was when we were attempting to sign the check, and the pen that she had left us had died.  

    Libations: The G&T that I had was good, although nothing remarkable.

    Great place for drinks and conversation with friends or dates. Ambience and space is similar to the Four Seasons Park 75 lounge. Crowd last night was mostly 30-40something professionals but we saw several older folks too. It's hard to tell if these were mostly hotel residents or Atlanta folks - we're thinking more the latter.

    Last night was packed & loud - so be ready for shouting if you want to be heard. However prime seating was out on the patio, esp. during gorgeous weather like last night.

    I'd like to go back and try the "West Paces Mary" which according to the website, is a Bloody Mary with a unique blend of spices and a pickled green tomato garnish. Sounds yummy.

    Parking is complimentary valet, and the St. Regis Bar is upstairs on the 2nd floor. Restrooms are also worth checking out - first time I saw a toilet with a half-flush and full-flush option.

    Beeeeaaauuuuutiful hotel! The room, billiards, swimming - everything! Amaaazing! Pity we got here so late at night and had to leave for an all-day conference early in the morning!

    Why then, you say, 4 stars? Their concierge really needs to improve! The guy is obnoxious and unhelpful. What's worst, he doesn't know basic things like - put your actual address when Google-mapping a place for an out-of-towner, else Google Maps picks a default point on the road if you don't specify number, which may or may not be on the same side of the road once you need to make a left/right in this case.

    Yes, our concierge snobby-man gave us the wrong directions (and not for the first time)!! We drove 20mnts before realized nothing seemed right and eventually picked up a map from a store to figure it out!

    The night before, when we were trying to get to the hotel and called for help when we were less than a mile away, he gave us the wrong directions as well!!!

    Now, the security people are even more self-centered and power-grabbing. We happened to leave our rental-car keys in the billiards room. We called in the morning, when we realized we left it there, and they had found it. Yayee! But then, they wanted us to describe the key very closely and also the exact spot we had left it in - we passed both those tests (and we understand "security measures").

    She wants us to bring an ID with us when picking it up - sure, no problem! But no, hold on, she needs to first call Hertz and verify the car is indeed under our name...uhhh what!? Can we show the registration paperwork we have? Match the name with the ID! No. We need to call Hertz. OK, at least you better have a special number besides the general 1-800 as we're getting late for a conference. No. We have to call the general 1-800#.

    45mnts later, after ignoring the manager's request to bring the key by, the woman strolls in casually as if she's admiring freshly-bloomed flowers in a park. No sense of urgency after we told her numerous times we're late for a conference we came to attend.

    UGHHHHH - after writing this review, I almost feel like changing it to 3-stars, but the hotel was just so gorgeous that I can't let two bad apples affect it all. But they really need to be replaced soon before they rot the whole basket!

    My wife and I stayed at the St. Regis for two nights on a recent weekend and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We originally booked a deluxe room through the AMEX Fine Hotels and Resorts program and were very pleasantly surprised to find out at check-in we'd received an upgrade to a St. Regis Suite on the 7th floor. For perspective, a deluxe room is listed as being 440 sq ft, while the St. Regis Suite is 1000 sq ft.

    Our room included a large sitting area with a couch and chaise lounge, along with a dining table for four, a half bathroom and a large flat screen TV. Our bedroom featured what seemed like an oversized king bed, with a mattress we personally found to be on the firm side. That's probably because we are accustomed to sleeping on a memory foam mattress.

    The highlight of the room was clearly the master bathroom. It was the largest I've ever seen in a non-Vegas hotel. It featured a full bath and giant separate shower with heads on both sides and a rain head from above. There was also a separate room for the toilet with frosted glass door for privacy. There were also two nice sized closets, one on each side of the room. Also, a dual sink vanity and a sitting area for applying makeup.

    Service wise, we were impressed with everyone we came in contact with from the check-in desk, to the bellmen, to the bartenders, to the cleaning staff. Everyone was there to please.

    I am also a huge fan of the Mansion on Peachtree and prefer its location as it relates to restaurants and shopping. Price being equal, it would be a tough choice as to which one we would choose for future visits to Atlanta. This stay was obviously enhanced by the generous room upgrade we received, and that isn't something we can count on happening in the future. Typically, the St. Regis is more expensive than the Mansion, sometimes significantly more. So I'm not ready to say I will be straying from the Mansion, but the St. Regis certainly put its best foot forward on our initial visit.

    I am super-picky and hard to please.  Plainly stated, this hotel is superb. There is nothing about it that isn't incredible. The service, the quality, the decor, the cleanliness, the accommodations.  All perfect.  I had a basic room and loved it.  I can only imagine what the suites would be like...

    I didn't get a chance to patronize the restaurants and lounges, but I did use the pool and the accommodations there were also top-rate, including cabana boys who come around taking food and drink orders and bringing you ice water.  Ahhhh.

    In terms of location, if you know ATL, you know it's not a walking city, and I was a little worried because I didn't rent a car for my stay.  Fortunately, they have a town car service (or so I hear - I didn't use it) and there are many things within walking distance of the hotel, including the Atlanta Historical Center.

    There are also several restaurants closeby, including a Seasons 52 and the very first Moe's (if you wanna go casual).  Not too far away are a Publix, a Starbucks and a Barnes & Noble. There are also a few little women's boutiques and salons around there, too.

    Don't miss the Whole Foods across the street. They have an amazing selection of take-out foods (including at breakfast) as well as a nice, clean area in which to eat on the property.

    If I had to find fault with something - and I'd have to work hard to do that - here are the things that could perhaps use improvement:

    - The walls are awfully thin for such a high-end place. The rooms are exquisite but I could hear quite clearly the conversations and the music playing in the room next door, which house a bridal party, from what I could gather - ugh.

    - You have to SLAM the doors to ensure the are fully closed.  On several occasions, mine were not closed all the way, which could have allowed someone to enter my room!

    - I was offered a copy of the New York Times for morning paper delivery, but I didn't receive it, and when I asked for it, I was told there had no more.  :(  Minor, in the scheme of things though...

    This hotel is beautiful and elegant and romantic.  Stay here with someone special!

    I've never stayed here so this isn't a review about the rooms but rather the bar/drink service.   Wait, what service?  There is no service.  It's awful!  I've come here a few times and we've sat down and literally the only employee who came anywhere near us made it pretty clear that serving us wasn't her job (but actually it was, she just didn't feel like doing it and yes we were in the right area where drink service is supposed to be taking place).   In fairness, on one occasion we did flag down a person who's job really wasn't to serve, I think he was a maintenance guy, and he actually went and got us taken care of.  

    In a hotel of this calibur at these prices, this lack of service should NEVER happen, if it happens once, you can kind of get around it.  Maybe its just me, I swear I showered before I went, but it happened about half the time that finding a person to come take a drink order or whatever is next to impossible.  Ugh!

    Needless to say, we don't go here anymore for drinks and to be honest, the experience has tarnished my view of the brand overall.   After all, if its that hard to get someone to come take your order, how hard would it be to get someone to come clean your room or bring you towels if you need them?   Its not something I'd like to find out about, especially at these prices.

    My review is for the afternoon tea, or, this month, in celebration of love and featuring Shakespeare's sonnet no. 18, the Poetry Tea. I was late after a spa appointment, but the staff welcomed me and made me feel at home in this luxurious setting. The Long Gallery is elegantly decorated with Monet-esque paintings and classic sculptures. I had a nice seat overlooking the lobby and crystal chandelier. The service is excellent. Some of my favorite treats: shrimp and artichoke salad on endive tips, passion fruit parfait, and the red velvet macaron with cream cheese icing. The scones with clotted cream and jam were light and delicate, and the chocolate-covered strawberries were a special touch.

    Looking for an elegant place to have have drinks after work this is a great location.Went last week for a wine tasting, and the host was really knowable about the wines of the nights, and the selection was one of the better ones, I have attended in the Atlanta area, so check it out 25 bucks for 4 or 5 different kind.

    Also around 6 everyday I think they have a the champagne toast which is something cool to watch if you have even seen it done so smooth before.

    In Atlanta for meetings over a couple of nights. A nice St. Regis. It's not the dana point California property with the ocean views and golf but the facility has the similar 5 star amenities and services!  If you can be outside of downtown Atlanta this is the hotel for ultimate comfort and luxury.  It's in a suburban upscale area for shopping and restaurants.

    What do you do if you're bored of hitting up the usual Buckhead bars with the same crowd of recent graduates that you went to college or high school with, doing the same things you did in college? Head over to the St. Regis for a more sophisticated night if "fun."

    There is something for anyone who is tired of the above.  If you love people watching as much as I do, get your peripherals ready because there is always an interesting mix of people here.  If you hate waiting in a crowded bar to get a drink, you'll love the fact that you'll get that much anticipated drink and then some.  The couches, tables and chairs make for a very comfortable night of chit chatting with your friends.  The outside has more seating, as well as a fireplace that is perfect for the cooler nights.  Oh, and don't forget to ask for the bar snacks....

    Ambiance is the name of the game here. This is one of the swankiest hotel bars in the ATL, bar none. I just go in to experience the opulence and splendor of the place. The crowd can be friendly depending on how many drinks they've had. But the place is just so fabulous that who cares, and it smells good too.

    Most importantly, if you buy one drink, which is really all I can afford here, they would still validate your parking. Take that W Hotel!

    The people watching in this bar is absolutely fantastic!

    Lots of 50-70 year old dudes in suits and 24-65 year women in cocktail dresses trying to get those guys to open up their wallets and buy them drinks. This place oozes money and it's shown in the pricey drinks (~$15 drinks and $7 beers).

    We came in around 8:30 and got a table and watched everyone get lose on stiff martinis. Very classic vibe, almost like what I would assume Mad Men would frequent if we were only on Madison Avenue.

    I'd recommend starting somewhere else and hitting this place after you've had a drinks unless you really hate your wallet.

    It's certainly worth checking out at least once!

    Well if you have been wondering where all the rich white folks go in town I have found it.

    Nestled in a cozy corner of the St. Regis, the Bar is the place to see and be seen in Buckhead.

    This of course will cost you.  The service is excellent. On both occasions that Mr. Gordon and I have been seen here we enjoyed a very attentive cocktail waitress. The free snacks are good, but not as good as the Ritz Carlton's.  The drinks are ok. Nothing earth shattering OMG goodness, but well crafted and enjoyable. But they are on the high side.

    They have an excellent patio that doubles the seating space of the bar, which came in handy on the super crowded Saturday night that we were there.

    The inside bar looks like a Ralph Lauren set design; as to most of the clientele. It earned an extra star from me just for that........

    ~ We walk in and my face lit up, it was stunning. There before me stood a beautiful Tiffany Blue and White Tree with 88 hand blown glass ornaments. The Holiday decor complimented the Hotel in every way. I felt like Audry Hepburn stepping into a classic movie! The staff was so friendly and ready to assist, I knew this was going to be the beginning of a wonderful experience~

    I cannot say enough great things about this place!

    We have stayed here twice during the holidays, it is just magical! The staff was friendly the decor stunning. The room comfortable and the food delicious.

    My husbands company has a winter conference and Holiday party, for two years they have chosen this beautiful venue for our 3 day stay. I am glad they did, it was a great place to have the meetings, party and dinners.  While he attended meetings everyday, I entertained myself at the hotel, and shopping is just hop away.

    This Hotel was the beginning of a Beautiful Relationship between myself and the Starwood Brand. The Standard they set and expect creates a relaxing and upscale visit every time.

    I cannot wait to visit again!

    Sure, I'm a little out of place at the St. Regis, rolling up in my 9 year old Honda and my H&M duds, but I don't care. This is a great bar. Yes, it's full of old men and their golddigger arm candy, but what better people watching is there? The setting is lovely: hands down one of the prettiest rooms in Atlanta. I adore the mural of the phoenix rising from the ashes. And the drinks are always on point as well. They've got a rotating seasonal menu and they aren't shy about the size of their cocktails, either. Or order their "house" spirit: a Woodford Reserve bourbon. Fancy. Pants.

    While Buckhead isn't in my normal wheelhouse and the St. Regis is certainly a wallet buster, I can't help but admit that coming here is a special and beautiful experience. Even if you only have one cocktail and then go to Waffle House and dine like a queen for the same price.

    Oh, and bonus: they validate parking. Even if you're not driving a Bentley.

    This hotel is simply amazing. I just came back from Atlanta this week and I miss it already. St. Regis is definitely a 5 star hotel in one of the nicest areas in Buckhead Atlanta. The valet service is quick and very welcoming. The lobby area is stunning with huge chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. The customer service here is outstanding and they are always asking if they can help you with anything. Their bar is fairly small with barely anyone in there but I came on a Sunday night so I'm not sure how it is on on a Friday or Saturday. Their lounge is nice with limited activity lol.

    I stayed here with a friend and I'm not sure the name of the room we got. I just know we had a king bed, living room, walk in closet, and a desk. We also had an amazing view of the pool and Atlanta. The bathroom is breathe taking. I soaked in their tub for an hour and it was definitely soothing. We order room service twice which was delivered on time and was fresh. I ordered the shrimp and gits and was blown away by how tasty it was. Next I ordered the cocktail shrimp which was fresh and very delicious. They also have restaurants very close by if you want to dine out like Chops.

    My overal experience here was behind amazing. I enjoyed staying at such an upscale hotel with great service. This place is very fancy and I did enjoy myself. Can't wait to stay at this hotel again. Love it.

    This review is strictly for the afternoon tea service offered at the St. Regis during special occasions. I saw that there were no reviews for this service so I took it upon myself to impart my knowledge.

    This tea service takes place in the Long Gallery. My sister and I got there early, took advantage of the free valet (for those dining in or for tea) and headed up the stairs and to the left. We waited around a few minutes and finally decided to seat ourselves at one of the set tables as we saw a group of well dressed middle aged ladies do.

    Our server, Jared, was extremely friendly and went through the entire tea and food menu with us and answered some questions we had. He recommended getting the "Mad Hatter" tea blend, a passion fruit and vanilla mix, which we both took him up on. Being an loyal Earl Grey fan myself, I was shocked at how delicious and well balanced the flavors were in this tea, which they blend on site! So good!

    Next, our server brought out the food tray and it was visually impeccable. Apricot and Poached Pear scones lightly dusted with powdered sugar on the top tray, finger sandwiches and quinoa-filled cucumber cups on the second, and french macaroons and other delightful desserts on the third. At first glance, it looks like the small portions won't fill you up, but we were stuffed by the end and barely able to finish off the scones we piled high with buttery clotted cream.

    We spent the better part of 2.5 hours here, which flew by. We were never once rushed and our server even came by to discreetly refill each of our individual tea presses. Afternoon tea is around $40 ($44 with a glass of sparkilng wine) and I will tell you it is worth every penny. We are going to incorporate this into our yearly to-do list! I can't wait for our next visit!

    Best hotel in the City bar none.

    Held my wedding here and have been back to stay.

    Each time it was a pleasure and a delight from the moment you see the grand tower from faraway to the stately entrance to the superior customer service to the royal rooms.

    Stayed in one of the grand suites as well as a "regular" room. Of course the suite is top of the line and big! The regular room is just as luxurious but on a much smaller scale. Either way, it's a treat.

    Of course, with this level of luxury comes at a cost. It's worth it if you want to experience the best in travel stay.

    Best Luxury Hotel in Atlanta

    I stayed at the St. Regis with my wife in mid-December of 2012.

    We found the hotel to be incredibly well kept (lobby, common areas) and thought that the rooms were very, very nice.
    - Attentive, helpful, yet not stuffy front desk and room service staff
    - Great indoor/outdoor bar area (interesting people watching)
    - Only con: somewhat congested valet area
    - We would definitely go back

    The valet are crooks who will take your last dime. The hotel/lobby is beautiful. However, I will never return and leave my car in the hands of such low-lifes. It was obvious someone had scavenged through my car. I had nor the time or patients to confront the staff but I did let management know. Whether or not they will do anything about it...Eek! Methinks not.

    Well, I finally made it to the St. Regis. What, oh what to say . . .

    First of all, the entire place is simply gorgeous. I'd say gawwwgeous - but it's too classy for that.

    Met my favorite dining and drinking cohort JW there after work yesterday, as we were looking for something different. As far as hotel bars go, not sure I've been to many better-appointed, more inviting or with such nice staff. Even the bathrooms were amazing. Love the fact that there is tons of seating, of all kinds- a small bar but with awesomely comfortable chairs, high top tables and sofas (and settees! How often do you get to say that?!) inside, and a lovely patio. Then there's the more light and airy bar area with beautiful windows and sofa arrangements. Whether you're a couple of ladies in town for some shopping or businessmen grabbing a drink to seal the deal, there's a perfect spot for you.

    I have to give four stars because the whole place is so beautiful. BUT.

    If it weren't for the lushness, I'd dock a star (maybe two) based on the fact that the prices on the food menu . . . Are. Insane. $19 for a hamburger?? Seriously? This is not H&F, it's hotel food (and H&F doesn't charge that much, btw). It might be wonderful hotel food (we ended up deciding it was a night for Fado bar food, not hotel bar food!) but all of the prices from apps to entrees indicated they're just a little too proud of themselves in this department. Maybe if I go back on an expense account, but even then . . .

    And it is a total cluster outside with the valet/parking situation, at least when they're busy like last night. Between Chops and the hotel and any events (there was some fundraiser going on last night), total chaos entering and exiting. We waited (and waited) for our cars so long that I ended up having time to go inside and pee. And come back to still wait some more.

    Other than the parking situation and insane prices (he paid for drinks so I am not sure the damage there but am guessing it wasn't cheap), this is a cool and absolutely beautiful spot. Won't likely be on my regular rotation unless someone's squiring me away to an intown escape any time soon!

    My wife and I spent a getaway, New Year's weekend at the St. Regis in Atlanta.

    This is one really nice hotel!!!   From the moment you walk in the front door you can't help but be impressed with this place!  The lobby has two fireplaces and multiple sitting areas.  The hotel is in Buckhead but we didn't get out and walk around.  We took taxis but the hotel has a driver who will drive you to locations (typically less than 3 miles away) in a really nice Mercedes at no charge!!

    We arrived on New Year's Eve and had a regular room (a very nice room!)  Since my wife has a gazillion Starwood points, we wanted to upgrade to a suite.  The hotel was sold out on the 1st night, but through excellent service at the front desk, we got upgraded the next day when a lot of folks left!

    The suite was incredible!  Separate living room, 1  1/2 baths, rain shower, closets, and a ton of other amenities.

    The St. Regis Bar is beautiful, the drinks are fabulous, & the bartenders are excellent.  Enough said!

    We ate breakfast at the hotel and the food was excellent.  If you just want a snack or feel like grabbing a bottle of wine for your room, you can always walk across the street to Whole Foods!

    The health club was quite nice and since it was winter, the swimming pool was converted into an ice rink.

    If you want to add a little luxury to your trip at an elegant hotel with fantastic service, this is where you want to stay!

    I have stayed here several times and I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience every time I am here!

    I would highly recommend this hotel as the best in Atlanta.  (It is one of the nicest hotels I've been in anywhere)

    The beds are amazing - the bathrooms are spectacular.  Did I mention the shower????   Incredible!!!  

    I am a Ritz Carlton platinum rewards member and that means I usually try to stay loyal to my brand.  (I get perks and stack rewards points) When I travel to Atlanta I almost always choose this hotel over the Ritz.  It is 3-times the quality and WAY newer.

    Reviewing Astor Court based on their daily high tea service.  We really enjoyed our experience here. The hotel had a luxurious yet welcoming vibe.  Our server was great. He described all the teas very nicely and  answered all our million questions. They had a wide array of teas to choose from.  I had the jasmine pearl and I also tried the st regis blend.  Tea was accompanied with a variety of sandwiches, macaroons, warm scones with clotted cream. Ambiance was relaxing and décor is ornate. Definitely would recommend doing high tea here for a true treat :) The valet was friendly and front desk was helpful.  If you're ever in atl, check out the st regis.hotel and do high tea here.

    Our first trip to Atlanta with our 9 month old son then, I just cant describe how awesome it was:)
    Vishal checked us in with a warm southern smile, gave our son a ducky ( which we lst somewhere on our trip) and St. Regis teddy. This is called great hospitality to start your stay with. Hotel is approx mile and a half away from closest MARTA station and being a San Francisco native we walked with our bags and stroller. Concierge is excellent, hotel is next to Atlanta History Center which was fun and educating.They have a nice Mercedes to drop you off to local places but we couldn't use it as we didn't have car seat and hotel doesn't provide one, Pool was nice, fully stocked with towels and clean:)
    Saber in the evening was fun where you can learn history of the hotel and get to sample Champagne served on Titanic. Overall a very excellent stay, if you don't mind staying little outside hussle bussle of Atlanta, St.Regis is the place. Cheers

    Been here for their high tea a few times now. Might seem a bit pricey but great for a one in a while pampering. You can let them know in advance for veg and glutten free options and they will accommodate. Its a pretty large amount of food - scones, muffins, cookies, chocolate, fruit cakes, etc so you might end up actually boxing some home. They are not very crowded usually so if you want to relax and unwind then this is a good option. Valet parking validated. Great location in Buckhead so you can always plan to hit up some other spots before or after.

    For $500.00 a night i wasnt impressed. It was a nice room and it had its perks, but honestly, i dont see the big deal. My favorite part was the Stargazer Lillis in the lobby. It smelled like heaven everyday. The food is insanely priced. $30 for a waffle! A waffle?? Eggs and bacon were like $25.00. I didn't get it. We lived at Whole Foods across the street. It was the only way to eat. But i guess since millionars stay and live at this hotel, a $30 waffle is probably cheap.

    What can't I say but wow . The minute you arrive you can relax . Room and hotel property are what you would expect the only draw back is that there seemed to be a disconnect with the staff on reservations and other small issues. Atlas restaurant is extremely delicious and a must when visiting Atlanta. I did however feel that the overall service of the hotel wasn't the caliber you have grown to know from St. Regis .

    Loved the decor ... So beautiful!
    Food is great:
    small plates: scallops-- umm surprisingly the only thing I did not like; the sauce was good, but the scallops itself were chewy and had a crunchy taste here and there (Yeah, I know that sounds bad to me as I write it too.. but it really did not meet my expectation--apparently it was the servers favorite starter)-- I think even for next time I will pass...
    Entrees: Well lets just say the veal was amazing with the fois gras on top, but it had a lot of fat on it, and I personally do not like that.. However, the taste was great!

    I love this hotel so much that I book it every year for our anniversary: however, the bar was a HUGE disappointment this time.  I ordered a cocktail that was immediately swooped up by a waitress when clearing drinks off the table.  It was a completely full drink so not sure how that happened.  After telling a waiter, 20 mins later I got a new drink that was very different from the first and absolutely undrinkable.  My husband and I tried to order a glass of wine ( to be on the safe side) but were unsuccessful.  It really put a damper on a great night, though we eventually went to the bar at Chops where they were somehow able provide a decent drink.  Definitely not the service you would expect from a 5 star hotel on your anniversary.  On a positive note, the pool service was excellent as always.

    Upon entering the grand entrance, you will be greeted by the friendly and efficient doormen and valets. During our 4 night stay at St. Regis Buckhead, we experienced nothing but friendly services. The room was spotless (and this is coming from a slight ocd lady) with all the finesse you would see at a 5 star hotel, and very very quiet. In fact, I only saw one hotel guest ONCE in the hallway during our entire stay! I really enjoy the privacy the hotel provides. The pool was beautifully decorated and maintained, and the athletic club had everything that I needed and very well stocked (a rolled-up towel and a small bottle St. Regis water at every elliptical.)

    Complimentary breakfast coffee and tea near the entrence of Astor Court, if you need to grab something to go on your way out.

    A perfect stay! Thank you St. Regis for holding a true 5 star standard.

    I ended up here one night after a friend's wedding. She and her new hubs were staying here for their wedding night shenanigans and invited a bunch of us back for drinks before bed. I was reluctant due to the location. I am not a fan of Buckhead, but, despite the Buckhead crowd, this place was stunning. Just beautiful.

    The bar was amazing, as was the outside patio area. It was a chilly night and they had a fireplace and lots of seating. It was crowded but not overly loud and the crowd was older so there wasn't too much tomfoolery going on. My group spent most of the night on the patio area and it was a nice experience. I can't speak for the hotel, but I can only imagine that it would be equally stunning.

    The parking was valet only. I cannot recall if it was complimentary or not. I wouldn't mind going back here should a similar situation present itself in the future but I can't say that this is my type of bar scene if I am given a choice. Give me a PBR and skinny jeans, please.

    Wow. This hotel defines luxury.

    if you can afford it, you will have the perfect stay here. The constant need for tips for bellmen, valet, room service, etc. adds up quickly. Room service is far more expensive than local restaurants. That said, I suppose most guests at the St. Regis won't notice a few dollars here and there, and room service is understandably expensive (and optional).

    The service was completely positive, incredibly gracious, and always exactly right. They seem to employ mind readers.

    The room was upscale in every way (TVs in the bathroom mirrors; a huge and very deep soaking tub). The bed was comfortable. Everything was laid out and decorated in the most tasteful and elegant manner.

    The public areas were gorgeous, with fresh flowers and decorations.

    I had a perfectly fantastic time here and look forward to returning.

    Always a classy spot to grab a cocktail after dinner. Service is impeccable and they have a fantastic wine/port selection. We arrived as they were closing so the lights were on which wasn't too fun for ambiance but we did sit outside in the garden and there was no hurry in leaving - they let us linger for as long as we liked, in true luxury hotel fashion.  Love it.

    Love everything about this hotel. This was my second stay & it lived up to my memories. The attention to detail on the smallest things really make the difference you never knew you were looking for. Great service, product, rooms & venue space. The staff go out if their way to accommodate you & although it may be expensive at the outset, you are not charged every step you take once on the property, which can often happen at these high end hotels, and the expense is worth it. Can't wait to come back! The deep soaker tubs. Cannot say enough about the tubs!

Not only do they waste champagne all over the marble floor but they actually encourage you to have fun at their bar.

    So I've had much better cocktails and wine, certainly for the price. But that's not the point of the bar at St. Regis. Many people there wanting to be seen, and therefore it's an entertaining scene. I've seen Baton Bob, Cuba Gooding Jr., professionals on the prowl. Great people watching and always fun!

    This review is purely for the bar at St. Regis.

    Not only is it situated in very beautiful, classic ambiance and with a gorgeous patio, the service and drinks are top notch. Even at peak times, they manage to take drink orders fairly quickly and drink selection is spectacular. I particularly recommend one called Horse's Neck. On one occasion where we had a waitress and she brought us the wrong drink, she was very apologetic and quickly corrected the mistake.

    The crowd ranges from 30 to 50 and it's a great place to people watch. Lots of young ladies trying to meet their sugardaddy, so it's quite a scene. To summarize, you get true Starwood service even if you are here just to grab a drink.

    Stayed here for our 1 year anniversary. We were treated like royalty in every aspect of our stay. This is the best customer service I have ever experienced. Within minutes of arriving we were greeted with a beautiful piece of cake with happy anniversary written on it, complimentary of the hotel. The concierge also arranged last minute reservations at Chops where we were given the best table in the house because of their relationship with the hotel.

    Also in talking to the employees you could tell that they were all taken care of which translates to superior service.

    We will definitely be back.

    This review is on the bar and first impressions. Valet attendants take your car and open the doors to the lobby. This is so me. Just nice. The bar is sort of hidden if you do not know where to look. Go upstairs, to the left and it is down a short hall adjancent to the new restaurant that will be open in January.

    I dig this bar. It is low key with good service. Once you order, complimentary nuts are served to you to help soak up the liquor. The "Phoenix Rising" looms on the wall directly behind the bar area. 2 flatscreens are usually showing a sports show/game.  The bar area seats 9 approximately. Add a few hi top tables (about 5) and lounge seating in the rear with couches and that completes the bar scene. Just outside of the actual bar is a seating lounge for more private conversations and brighter light to see your guest better. Be weary of those "you look better when Im drunk" glasses.

    Upon leaving, get your ticket validated or pay $15 for parking. This bar is like a fine scocth. It's just not another bar, it is an experience.

    SideNote: This is my 120th Review which was my goal before the end of 2014. I ended it with a place I wanted to visit for the last 3 years. Now it seems that I am a regular there. Mission accomplished. Time for some new goals.

    Happy NYE!!!

    Sometimes I just love going to the St. Regis for drinks.  Sure it's ridiculously expensive for a glass of wine, but when you want to feel like Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl, then this is your go to spot.  

    Get dressed up.  Go with your girlfriends, or better yet your boyfriend.  See and be seen.  If you're lucky, you might see Baton Bob, but if nothing else you are guaranteed to see a few high class escorts working the bar.  The people watching is fantastic.  The ambiance of the St. Regis is bar none the fanciest, swankiest, crystal chandelier-iest place in Atlanta.  

    When the mood strikes, I am above and beyond obsessed with the St. Regis.  Cheers!

    My job had the annual conference here for the third or fourth time.. this time I actually got to stay if I wanted and had a suite/room at my disposal. This is the best hotel room I've ever slept in. I frequently travel out of town with my boyfriend and/or family so I've been in quite a few hotels. I always want a bathroom with the garden tub, yes they have one in every room I saw. I always want a comfortable bed that I'm not afraid to get naked in... TMI? Sorry. lol

    This hotel has everything. Plus it is across the street from Whole Foods, connected to one of the best steak houses in Atlanta (Chops) and is in walking distance to numerous stores. Can it get better than this? Besides it being THE hotel most famous come to whenever visiting Atlanta (I saw Common & heard Drake was staying here the 4 days I was around) - every room has a butler on call and there are bars and staff at your beck and call, which makes everything ten times easier when trying to get around this gigantic place. Each room has a stand in shower, private toilet and TV in the bathroom mirror! I'm excited because I must come back for a staycation really soon!

    Valet overnight is $38 (+tip of course). Not sure how much it is for the day. Drinks are awesome, so I heard but I'm unable to drink... my coworkers were there until 2a so make up your own mind.

    The rooms are very pricey. Most of the rates aren't available online and must be told over the phone. I know the lowest rate I saw was $299.99/night and this was a standard room rate. They just go up from there. You get what you pay for, though. Pick your battles! lol
