Our weekend stay at the St. Regis is one of my favorite trips. The property is absolutely beautiful; the grounds are meticulously maintained and the setting couldn't be better.

For a 5 day stay in March 2015, I needed a very relaxing, high end place to be pampered and to enjoy. For the price, it may be the most expensive Hotel / spa resort property in all of Orange county ...the question is..IS IT WORTH IT? MY overall person recommendation is that it is NOT. The place is beautiful..the...

The views, rooms and the property is gorgeous. We were there this week before another group had bought out the hotel and we were very disappointed by the service, food selection and how we were treated as guests. It took over 2 hours to have our luggage brought to our room so we went down to the pool and tried...

This is my 5th time visiting with my family and this property never disappoints! I have to start with a couple of call outs.
