Took my husband for his birthday. The staff was very welcoming and even gave us a free bottle of wine as token for his birthday. The reservation staff we had Jayson was very kind and accommodation. We had massages and that too was nice. The distance of the hotel from the beach was a surprise to me. I thought it...

My first stay at a St. Regis in the states didn't disappoint. The location at Dana Point in southern Orange County is perfect for a lazy beach get-away with clear blue skies and ocean without the fuss of a major tourist hub. What made it more enjoyable was that the hotel stay was partly free with SPG points and all...

Wow, beautiful property, but the service didn't meet our expectations. While the valet staff, house keeping and the spa service were great!!!! They suffered everywhere else. The first night we had some Freinds from LA come visit and we tried to sit on their beautiful bar deck, found a great spot with couches, fire pit and outdoor heaters. Sat down...

The resort was everything I expected, beautiful grounds and relaxing. The staff was very attentive and courteous. We eat breakfast at their Motif restaurant and everything was very good. I went jogging every morning by the library near by park and the beach and came-up behind the golf course back to the resort (approximately 3 to 4 miles). The weather...

...., but was worth it. Thebreakfast buffet and the romantic dinner was to die for. We loved it. My two teenage daughters enjoyed it all the way. The location is very close to the beach; its not beach front. Comparable to Ritz a couple blocks away, but less expensive during the time we visited.
