From the website I saw a benefit called "Honor Bar", what's that?

The renovations are concerning to me - have not heard about this before. Do you know about when they are expected to start? If it will be during our time there Iím probably inclined to go elsewhere.

I now hear the room/suite renovations will begin in late May or early June.

Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere on this thread, but have question regarding upcoming stay at this hotel through Virtuoso (am just a Marriott Gold otherwise). As is listed that the breakfast is for continental breakfast in restaurant or room service with max credit of $60 per room, would anyone here know if we would be allowed to order other stuff at breakfast instead of continental (much rather have hot stuff) and pay the difference.

Iím here now. Iím sure they would allow you to buy up from continental. Ordinarily, Iíd expect the breakfast benefit would include hot items, but Iím Ambassador so canít be sure for Virtuoso.

Mock ups for the refurbished rooms and suites!
 
Introduction While I was back in my "regular" Metropolitan Suite for a quick 2 night stay to just relax and pamper myself, I had the chance to visit the approved mock ups for coming room and suite refurbishment starting at the end of May. REGULAR ROOM: METROPOLITAN SUITE:

The Bose Wave speaker replaced by Tivoli Audio radio .... similar stuff was put in St Regis Sg rooms last month.

Currently at The Capitol Kempinski Singapore and will be moving back to St R tomorrow.

Does anyone have a sense as to how disruptive the renovations are likely to be? Iím booked for a stay in mid-July, and if it is going to feel and sound like a construction zone during that period, Iíd prefer to switch to another property.

My understanding is that they will start with the top 4-5 floors and work their way down. To be as least disruptive as possible. But the public spaces aren’t being renovated.

Thanks bhrubin for the photos. Nice to see that odd brownish string art thing is gone between the windows.

Just wanted to post a quick trip report. I am an Ambassador elite and I Booked a 1 night award stay on a weekend night during mid-May. Applied an SNA at booking but got an email the day before arrival that the SNA could not be honored and the SNA was refunded to my account. When I showed up to the hotel they told me that while they couldn't honor my SNA in advance, they were now able to offer me an upgrade to a Overlook Suite (several categories above the Astor Suite I had tried to get with the SNA). Very nice!

This is the 1st time I have stayed at the St. Regis SF compared to 20+ nights at the Ritz SF. I have NEVER been upgraded to a suite at the Ritz despite staying there for numerous paid and award stays (although they have upgraded me to the Club Level twice). My wife greatly enjoyed the complimentary coffee/tea room service and we both enjoyed the free breakfast (which the Ritz doesn't offer). The St Regis has a much more modern feel than the Ritz and I am surprised to read that they are going to be redoing the suites/rooms because the one we stayed in seemed nicer/newer than the Ritz rooms.

After this stay I am seriously questioning my loyalties to the Ritz. Thanks to @bhrubin for highly recommending the St. Regis otherwise I probably wouldn't have tried it!
