Let’s say that I wanted to show a certain someone a taste of the good life for a few nights. Ignoring the cost of travel to the destination city/resort, what would be the cheapest St. Regis that I could book for a 4-5 night stay?

In the USA, Atlanta (in Buckhead, but not in the center of the area with stores and restaurants where many other hotels are located and not real close to MARTA either) can be pretty cheap at times, but there must be cheaper ones in countries that are generally cheaper. Maybe Thailand or a smaller city in mainland China? I can't think of any StR in Eastern Europe.

Probably somewhere in mainland China or Southeast Asia. Or maybe a winter resort destination in the summer.

Have seen Mexico City to be pretty reasonable - nice hard product

I've found KL and Bangkok to have some reasonable rates from time to time

I believe the StR Lhasa would be the cheapest. In the US, I think Houston has ATL beat.

I find the property in Chengdu to offer some of the lowest-priced StR nights I've seen.

Doha you can get it for easily 200 usd per night (there is no tax there so that's all you pay) and during the summer months I am sure you can probably find for 150 usd! (its a great property with excellent staff)

I'm at the StR in Moscow right now. I think i'm paying under $250/night for this stay, something absurd.

Thank you all! I have some great ideas now. I like the possibility of Mexico City, that one might be the one I pick in the end.

All of the ones in Asia and China also make sense... hmmm...

I agree with what all others have said. Specifically the St. Regis in Tianjin and in Lhasa were some of the cheapest in Asia that I came across.

Lhasa will be under $100 per night. Compared to other hotels in Lhasa it is luxurious (the rooms are heated and that alone puts it in the top third). However, I don't think it ranks highly when scaled against other St. Regis hotels around the world. You need to purchase a tourist permit from an authorized travel agent to enter Tibet.

I live in China. Unless you're familiar with China and already have your coping processes then the end to end experience will not impress whoever it is you're taking no matter how superficially exquisite the individual hotel.

Take them to Bangkok or KL if you're targetting cheap St Regis hotels in Asia.
