Chengdu: St. Regis or Ritz Carlton?

Status: SPG Gold & Marriott Gold
Will be booking through: Amex FHR
Amenities that come with (from FHR): Free breakfast, room upgrade based on availability, $100 per stay credit

Hi guys,

I will be passing through Chengdu early January next year for three days during my honeymoon.

Given that they are both similar prices & similar benefits that are provided by Amex FHR, which one would you choose?

I stayed at the St-Regis recently but I can't compare. The location is good although I had a hard time finding it (walking from the subway). Nice room with fancy toilet. The thing that I did not like about it is all the electronics which are difficult to figure out.

St. Regis is more closer to the shopping street ChunXi road, around 10min walk.

Both hotels are a 5 min walk from each other.
I really don't like the obnoxious American design of the RC paired with the usual RC irks and wouldn't even think about staying at the RC again; although my corp rate is cheaper than the HIX across the street.

If you want to splurge in Chengdu, stay at the Swire managed hotel, called temple or so, or the IC century city.
