Rated 5 out of 5 by Darin Awesome Doorman
Jose Sanchez was probably the best doorman I have ever encountered. I have stayed at some of the nicest hotels in the world and have never had a doorman so attentive to my needs. Most of the time I just ask or told him what I needed and he got it handled.

This property is amazing. It is the best property in Miami area. The location is first class, the beach is awesome, the facility and interiors are awe inspiring. Everything is high tech. The spa is just great. Food delicious. The rooms are some of the best I've seen. The suite upgrade I received was absolutely incredible. The views from the 2 balconies were breathtaking. It was the perfect place for my family to be weather stranded in January.
Ludovic is the best manager and a true hospitality guru. Noblesse oblige. Merci beaucoup. This is the place to stay in South Florida.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SBickley The best family vacation we've ever had!
Unquestionably, this was the best family vacatoin we've ever had! We "splurged" this year, given the horrible winter we've been having in Michigan and are so pleased that we did. The resort exceeded our wildest expectations as the facility and service were far better than expected. We are already talking about our next visit to the St Regis at Bal Harbour!!

We arrived and were told our rom would be ready in 15 min after 45 min told another 5 they were just waiting fir the mgr to check room. 20 min later given our room. The young man at reception was apologetic and nice but was given really bad info. Told room 2011 and given 1710 not a big deal. Jennifer called the next day to see how things were because of checking prob, I returned her call to VM of another employee and never heard from them, bad service!! We did receive a bottle of wine for prob checking in which is nice touch, but no one likes sitting and waiting for their room!!

We were thrilled with our son's and daughter-in-law's wedding at the St. Regis. The accommodations were wonderful. We also loved our room! Thank you!

Staff definitely went above & beyond to make me feel "presidential". Room was amazing. The beach is beautiful. Hotel is very up to date.

Not sure what to say except that we were disappointed. Everybody we came in contact with were super nice. In fact too nice bordering on insultingly fake for the purpose of getting tips.
Our room was the extra side room to the "main" room. There was no desk and it was really tight. Mind you we used our Suite Nights awards for this. This was no suite. The room was not made up when we arrived. There were insufficient towels in the bathroom. There was no bath gel or shampoo. There were two basins in the the bathroom but only one soap dish. So I flipped a glass over to put my soap on and for 4 days the maid never moved the soap or the glass.
Repeatedly the bed was not turned down ready for the night and once they came at 9:00pm to do it.
As a SPG Platinum they told us we were entitled to free breakfast. When we had our first breakfast they told us when we got the bill that only the continental breakfast was included not the buffet. This is the first Starwood hotel that has done this.
The elevators are on a different call button system that seems too cute and too complicated.
The details of the property design are magnificent but it comes off as completely irrelevant when the service is so sub par.

1- restaurant staff is superb especially Pedro.
2-for the price, the hotel facilities are not what would be expected. Pool is small, and gym lack equipment.
3- beach full of seaweed.
4- butler promoted as reason for higher price, yet we never saw or heard from the butler.
5- upon check out, person lacked knowledge about SPG rewards and was condescending and rude.
6-shocking at this price point they would charge you for gluten free items when paying for the buffet.
7- overall a good hotel, however it feels like you could get the same experience ata a Westin.
8- as per usual with SPG client experience, I am sure no one will respond to these comments .
