Welcome to FlyerTalk! I just tried booking 3 people in a room and the website allowed me to do so. It shows rooms with 2 double beds as available.

I recently spent three nights at St Regis with my partner. What a great stay. I took advantage of the weeknight promotion but was still upgraded to a corner suite.On arrival there is an immediate sense of peace and quality .We took advantage of the room service which was excellent. I love the sense of maturity of the St Regis brand. One example of this is fact that their pool and gym are always both open 24/7. It gives a true sense of a home away from home experience.

I was wandering how St Regis compares with the W up the street.

Thanks St Regis.

Won't stay at the St. Regis for a couple weeks, but can tell you that the W is... very W. Feels like you're in a night club in the lobby and lounge, and the rooms are very, well, modern. I think my corner room had three budda's in it :D .. Guess the W brand just isn't quite me. The hotel itself is nice though, staff was so-so.

If I had to choose, I'd do the St Regis first then the W. You can always walk over for a drink or food.

Worth repeating. ^
After dinner on Saturday night, I was able to use the computer without interruption.

Very cool, and easy to use.

Arrived last Saturday at 10:00am. My room wasn't ready. i asked if it would be possible to get a room on a high floor with a view. ;) The front desk said that the hotel was sold out, and my free night reservation was for a lower floor....'but I'll see what I can do'.

Checked in later in the day to room 1515. ;)

After inspecting the room, I wondered where the closet was. Trust me when I say you'll find it. :D

Comfortable bed. The best pillow I've slept on in a long time. ^
A hugh walk-in shower with sitting area. Showerhead is a waterfalls type.
The leather (type) walls in the separated toilet area were unusual.

This room had to be at least 350' ft. 2 bottles of Evian water in the room. And one last classy thing, the hotel uses Spiegelau water glasses bedside. ^

Also stayed there this past weekend, maybe I passed by you in the lobby. Stayed in a Superior level guest room which was quite comfortable. I actually liked the giant opening window that allowed you view the bed area from the bathroom, let me keep an eye on our toddler while we were getting ready for a wedding. The room was available for an early checkin which was nice. Didn't use the hotel ammenities all that much though. Parked in the MOMA lot just down the alley which saved 20 bucks a night for parking.

Blocking Free Weekend Nights??
 
I can't help feeling this property is blocking free weekend night award usage through the end of the promo (end Sept). Is that even possible?

I keep trying to use my last 2 free nights and that room category is not available until the first weekend in October (after the promo ends). I've been trying for several weeks already to find weekend availability (ANY weekend before end Sep) and there's nothing.

I could believe that they really are booked up for the Superior Room category all through September, but the reason it seems strange to me is that they're selling a higher category room for less money on weekends through the end of September, than the Superior Rooms first weekend in October. :confused:

Sep 4-6
Superior Room - Not Available
Deluxe Room - $295

Oct 2-4
Superior Room - $327

I was able to get the SR for next Sunday night. Saturdays, however, do seem booked up.

October 2-4 is the USC Weekender, so a bunch of parents who can spend $40k+++ a year to send their kids to college are coming to the Bay Area and all the Starwood Properties in San Francisco are charging significantly more that weekend... St. Francis is the official hotel with a group rate of $225, for example.

Honestly, I doubt it. It is a beautiful property, and a highly desirable place to use our free nights. I expect it has been booked out by those who made their stay decisions earlier.
