I needed to go to Monarch Beach to meet with a company that we wanted to hire to create promotional videos for our company. My sister was going to be there with her family and I was lucky enough to stay with them for 7 nights and I only had to pay for 2 nights. The whole family was looking forward to experiencing a truly luxurious vacation and pulling into the St. Regis your hopes soar even higher! Its mandatory valet parking and as I handed over the keys to my car I marveled at the TWO or was it THREE Bentleys parked off to the side. Bentley’s, Mercedes and every luxury vehicle you could imagine were parked and gleaming in the sun. I handed over my keys feeling my car would be safe….
The St. Regis Hotel in Monarch beach was one of the worse resorts I’ve ever stayed at. I think because they build tips into everything the incentive to provide good service isn’t there. The grounds are nice but if you feel like you will have some luxurious vacation, you will find that this particular St. Regis falls far from the mark! Don’t waste your starwood points on this resort!
