St. Regis annual winter renovations completed in record time this year.
February 05, 2014
Nothing beats the arriving in a brand-new hotel room—crisp linens, spotless carpets and walls, everything working just so. Hotel rooms have a hard life, though, and the wear and tear of spilled drinks, suitcases banged against walls and guests in a hurry means that the feeling doesn’t last forever.
Each winter, the St. Regis Hotel completely refurbishes every room so that our guests can enjoy that brand-new feeling every time they stay at the hotel. During this process, all beds and all furniture are removed and carpet, paint and wallpaper are thoroughly cleaned and touched up as needed. The bathrooms are regrouted, all mechanicals and electronics are thoroughly checked and the room is tested and inspected before it’s deemed ready again.
Along with these physical refurbishments, this year, all the pillows and towels were replaced and upgraded for an even more luxurious feel. Throughout the year, updates have been made to the amenities including new digital entertainment packages, bigger televisions and full-length mirrors. Past guests can expect an even more pleasing experience accompanied by our same award-winning service.
“I have worked at great hotels around the World and this process is unprecedented in my experience,” said General Manager Jeremy Roncoroni. “The ownership of the St. Regis Hotel Vancouver is committed to the highest standards and allows us to invest each winter to maintain them”.
The process of shutting one floor at a time for winter renovations has been repeated every year since the completion of the St. Regis Hotel’s 2008 renovations. This year, however, high occupancy in February pushed the deadline forward and extra crew were brought in so that the hotel could be back at 100% capacity by January 31st.
We’re pleased to report that all of our rooms are once again back to their as-new state and ready for another year of hotel life.
