Located along the Champs-Élysées of Osaka, the St. Regis Osaka is one of the best luxury hotels in the city. The gingko trees lining the beautiful Midosuji Boulevard offer a magnificent view of the hotel.
An Expression of Japanese Aesthetics
The St. Regis Osaka sits in the heart of the city, ideally located halfway between the famous Namba and Umea district. The 27-storey tall structure was designed by Nikken Sekkei and is a classic fusion of contemporary architecture and characteristic Japanese structural design.
Embodiment of Comfort
Refined textures and elegant furnishings make a stay at the St. Regis Osaka a luxurious experience in every manner. From the opulent furniture to the deluxe marble bathroom complete with a deep soaking tub and an LCD TV screen affixed in the wall, the St. Regis Osaka goes beyond the usual hotel experience. I looked forward to soaking in the warm bath after a long day of exploration as I browsed through my favourite shows and listened to my favourite tunes.
An Extravagant Sojourn
The interior design of the property is inspired by the Azuchi Momoyama Era. Upon entering the lobby, you are greeted by a magnificent Swarovski crystal tree that represents the iconic plum trees found on the grounds of Osaka Castle. The hotel features a rooftop rock garden with meticulously pruned trees as well as a bar in its main lobby. The hotel offers six categories of accommodations and each room offers a marvellous view of the city skyline. The St. Regis Osaka offers authentic French fare at the Rue D’or while the La Veduta Italian restaurant is well known for its lavish multi course meals.
