Opulence Miami style. Forget your personal taste and relish the wildly over the top Grand Hall, floor-to-ceiling mirrors over black marble floors with epic chandeliers you begin to see where the $1bn refit was spent. Each of the 240 odd rooms, which at 650sq ft for a standard are the largest on the east coast, has their own 24hr butler with free packing/unpacking amongst other services you never knew you couldn’t live without. For those wishing to punish themselves for their excesses incurred at the Champagne Sabering bar the night before (free tasting, 7.30pm every evening) you can make use of the one mile running track thoughtfully landscaped into the resort. If you’ve hedonised one too many of the Bloody Mary’s, St Regis NY claims the credit for inventing them and each St. Regis has its own signature version, but can’t face the outside world then shuffle yourself off to the 14,000sq ft spa who’ll kindly tailor a package to suit your retoxification needs. If the luxury gets a little suffocating then hop in the hotel Bentley to slum it down South Beach.
