The St. Regis Shenzhen Hotel Review is part of The Year of the Monkey Trip Report which covers the following places:

- Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia
- Guangzhou, China
- Hong Kong
- Shenzhen, China
- Sanya, China
Getting There: I came from Hong Kong via train. From there, I took the metro for 2 RMB. Here are the directions from the hotel’s website: The city subway runs directly from Luohu Railway Station to Grand Theatre Metro Station, near the hotel. Once guests disembark at Grand Theatre, they should take Exit B. The hotel is located on the right side of the Kingkey 100 Building.
Get out-of-the-way Hyatt Hong Kong. Get out-of-the-way Hong Kong. Shenzhen is not the New Jersey equivalent to New York. It is a bustling metropolis with sights, sounds, and skyscrapers. The KK100 skyscraper, the second tallest building in Shenzhen and the 14th tallest in the world, is home to the spectacular St. Regis.
Take the elevator to the lobby and ready yourself to be impressed. It is gorgeous.
My room was not the fabled two-floor duplex but it was incredible.
I’m not one to take baths but with this view, I was tempted to request one from the butler like I did at the St. Regis New York.
From the bathroom or the bedroom, the view had me like Brandy, Top of the World. #throwback #mase #harlemworld
The Greatest Happy Hour in the World
It’s no surprise that I missed breakfast which if it was anything like the platinum happy hour was a mistake. The happy hour bar is on the 100th floor and it’s features more than drinks. I was the only there with a food spread meant for a king.
I’m guessing that I’m one of few people who visited Shenzhen for vacation. I’m glad I did and the St. Regis has a lot to do with it.
