St Regis Tianjin is a beautiful hotel, with an excellent location in a city that despite the fact that it is one of the biggest of the world is almost unknown in the West. Tianjin as a veritable metropolis has a lot to offer, and this hotel has the advantage of being close to all the happenings, even the train station is within walking distance.
We took a fast train from Beijing, and in just little more than an hour we were in Tianjin. We were welcomed in a very friendly manner. The lobby is beautiful and it keeps with the theme of quiet luxury and functional design of the whole property. In its architectural design I have to say this is one of the best St Regis Hotels I have seen in the whole world.
The service is as well excellent, upon arrival we were greeted and escorted by our personal butler to our room. Facing the river the room was airy, spacious, wonderfully decorated and with first class amenities. We have to admit that the air was little dry and hot, but they addressed the issue putting in a humidifier.
The Butler took care of everything, delivered coffee and tea at several times during our stay, unpacked everything and even organized our clothes by color and size in the closet. I have to say once again one of the best Butler services of any St Regis. When we were ready to leave once again the Buttler carefully wrapped and packed all our belongings.
Breakfast was excellent with abundant options. We had dinner a couple times in the restaurant, but one of the nights the food was not the best. There is a happy hour at the bar each night with free champagne and good snacks.
The Spa is fabulous, with a beautiful indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi located in the basement, those working in the fitness center were tremendously attentive. We particularly loved the stylish wet and dry areas: sauna and jacuzzi.
Another of the great attractions of the St Regis is the incredible value of the stay. I believe this is the most affordable property in their portfolio. It is true that dinner represented a little hiccup, but at this value, with such tremendous service, in a beautiful hotel like, I never will doubt to stay there again.
As city Tiajin has a lot to offer, great restaurants, a lot of shopping, parks and a beautiful riverfront. It is a place worth to include in the travel plans of anyone visiting Beijing.
