St. Regis Shenzhen: The Best Hotel in Asia And Beyond

13

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


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.

The Room 

My room was not the fabled two-floor duplex but it was incredible.

The Bathroom 

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.

The View 

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.

Overall 

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.

  1. I’ve stayed there a couple of times and now I route my trips into Mainland china via shenzhen just to stay there! I love it and I’m sad you missed the breakfast buffet since the head chef makes a mean indian offering and a great omelet station.

  2. It’s no doubt a good hotel. But far from the best. There are alot of great hotels in Shenzhen, however, that are very good value. Personal favorite is Hilton Nanhai. The Nanshan area is also a better area unless you’re just there for work.

    • That must be one amazing hilton. I stayed at the grand hyatt the next day. It was nice but not on the same level, literally speaking.
