THE ST. REGIS, HOUSTON
1919 Briar Oaks Lane
Houston, Texas 77027
The St. Regis is situated on three heavily wooded acres in Houston's prestigious Galleria and River Oaks area. The 12-story Bauhaus style exterior was designed by the architectural firm of Shepherd, Boyd of Dallas. The lobby, by Los Angeles interior decorator Louis Cataffo, is among the world's most beautiful and the rest of the hotel follows in grand style.
The rooms are large and comfortably furnished. Bed linens are 100% cotton; pillows are goose down; floor-to-ceiling windows bring the outside in. The baths gleam with brass fixtures, marble and travertine, and are provided with terry cloth robes and designer toiletries. Only the finest fabrics and materials have been used throughout. The suites rival the finest residences for graciousness. Though no two are alike, all share the feeling of genuine opulence.
The Garden Room/Conservatory, with its hand-stencilled walls and antique French tapestries, blends formal design with a pastoral view of the Post Oak Park. An appetizer of grilled marinated roast quail on panfried ancho chili pasta sets the stage for the restaurant's most celebrated entree, black bass with scallion-garlic vinaigrette. For dessert, the chocolate marjolaine is unbeatable. The Bar at the St. Regis is Houston's most "in" spot. Polished, hand-rubbed travertine highlights a clublike atmosphere of big-city sophistication and world class luxury.
This is a quintessential newly-built hotel, conceived all of a piece and realized without thought of expense to provide an experience guests will treasure and return to time and again.
