Landmark and 260-room Luxury Hotel Set to Open
SAN FRANCISCO (October 28, 2005) -- On November 1, 2005, San Franciscans will discover a new dimension of bespoke luxury and timeless elegance with the opening of the highly anticipated St. Regis Hotel & Residences, San Francisco, a 40-story landmark comprising a 260-room luxury hotel and 102 private residences. From legendary butler service, "anticipatory" guest care and impeccable staff training to the signature Remède spa, luxurious amenities and interior design by Yabu Pushelberg of Toronto, St. Regis Hotel & Residences, San Francisco promises to deliver a guest experience of flawless service and refined elegance.
"I look forward to welcoming our guests and residents," said Elias Assaly, general manager of the St. Regis Hotel, San Francisco. "Our goal is to bring a new dimension of elegance, style, luxury, hospitality and gracious living to San Francisco."
Located at 125 Third Street at Mission Street, in the heart of San Francisco's most exciting and revitalized neighborhood, the hotel neighbors the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, is near the Yerba Buena Gardens and Center for the Arts, and will host the new Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) in a portion of the rehabilitated Williams Building, a turn-of-the-century historical structure at Third and Mission. The St. Regis is also close to the city's financial district, Union Square shopping and an array of fine dining establishments and nightlife.
Guests will enjoy the latest in-room technology with 42-inch recessed plasma televisions and state-of-the-art electronics, including a 13-inch LCD panel in the bathroom. A digital assistant controls motorized wall coverings, recessed lighting, television, alarm, and the privacy indicator light outside the room. The entire hotel is Wi-Fi accessible.
St. Regis Residences
The St. Regis Residences feature interior design by the esteemed San Francisco-based The Wiseman Group, a separate entrance and lobby for Residences owners, and an intimately scaled maximum of only five or six dwellings per floor. In addition to a private resident concierge, owners of the St. Regis Residences have access to the services and amenities of the St. Regis Hotel, including fine dining, 24-hour room service, St. Regis' famed butler service, hotel business center, the 9,000-square-foot Remède Spa, and 3,700-square-foot private fitness center, complete with a 50-foot lap pool.
Restaurants and Lounge
Offering a relaxed yet elegant dining experience, guests are welcomed to the intimate dining room by rich mesquite wood floors and striking surroundings. The menu showcases seasonal New American cuisine, with a blending of flavors from southern France, northern Italy and Japan. Guests can select from raw treatments from the sashimi bar, such as crudo and tartare, as well as a range of appetizer and entree plates and an assortment of artisan cheese and desserts.
The bar, located in the hotel lobby, offers an inviting atmosphere, with intimate groupings of custom-designed chairs and sofas and a 16-foot open fireplace. The striking zebrawood bar is lit with glass pendant lighting and, in the tradition of the St. Regis Hotel, New York's famed King Cole Bar, features a contemporary mural. The bar features a classic drink menu, including the Bloody Mary, invented at the St. Regis Hotel, New York, as well as an extensive sake menu and a modified Ame dining menu.
Vitrine, a separate 74-seat breakfast restaurant located on the fourth floor of the hotel, offers a full breakfast menu based on fresh, local ingredients, and provides a welcome breakfast destination for local residents, businesspeople and hotel guests. Vitrine is available for events in the afternoon and evening.
