St. Regis, Shanghai

The St. Regis Hotel in Shanghai is a 6-star hotel in the Pudong District of Shanghai. This 37-story luxury hotel has 328 rooms and is branded as part of Starwood Hotels.

There are no fewer than three high-end restaurants in the St. Regis. The Danieli offers Italian, Saints International Restaurant features a la carte dishes from around the world, and Carrianna Chinese serves Cantonese cooking from the south of China. In addition, there are two different lounges that serve snacks, cocktails, and wine.

Amenities at the hotel are impressive, to say the least. There are the usual pool and business center. What makes the St. Regis special, however, is the butler service. Available 24 hours a day, the butler service allows each guest to have a personalized stay at the St. Regis. This includes complimentary pressing of garments and even a packing and unpacking service. The butlers do more than just laundry service, however. Tee times can be booked and art viewings arranged. The butler service will even send o­ne of their staff along to escort visitors as personal shoppers or to allow guests into studios, clubs, and galleries that are not open to the public.

Outside of its signature butler services, the St. Regis also boasts about its spa. Equipped with a sauna, the spa is relatively large for a hotel to have o­n its premises. Massages are also available, including the hotel's La Stone massage technique, which involves the masseuse using heated smooth rocks coated in fragrant oils instead of just her hands.

To round out its amenities, the St. Regis also has the usual fitness center. To go along with all of those exercise machines, the hotel offers free yoga and swimming classes as well to ensure their guests can stay fit while enjoying 6-star luxury.
