Welcome to Hotel St. Regis Osaka, Opened in 2010, the 5-star St. Regis offers its famed butler service, elegant European dining with beautiful city views and spacious, classically comfortable rooms in the heart of Osaka’s Midosuji area, just 70 metres from Honmachi Subway Station’s exit 3. When not gazing at the gorgeous city views, guests can sprawl out on the 300-thread-count sheets or watch a video-on-demand movie on the 42-inch HD flat screen. A minibar and a Nespresso machine are provided. The large French marble bathroom includes a rainforest shower, a soaking bathtub, a built-in LCD TV and a plush bathrobe. The lively Dotonbori area is a 15-minute walk from the St. Regis Osaka. Kyocera Dome is a 20-minute subway ride away, while Osaka Castle is a 10-minute drive. Sightseeing arrangements, dinner reservations, event tickets and more can be secured at the concierge desk. An exercise room with free weights, stationary bikes and treadmills is on site, as is a business centre. A jacket is required at La Veduta, helping to ensure an atmosphere that matches the richly warm decor, 12th-floor skyline views and hearty but sophisticated Italian cuisine. Afterward, guests can enjoy one of the special cocktails at The St. Regis Bar next door. Rue d’Or offers French dishes, and light fare can be enjoyed at the St. Regis Terrace.
