Famed for its hilly streets, rich culture and iconic landmarks, San Francisco is the crown jewel of the West Coast. Right in the heart of the downtown SoMa district lies St. Regis San Francisco, an ideal base for exploring the city. Renovated in 2022, The St. Regis San Francisco has consistently proved able to adapt to the fast-paced world of luxury hospitality.

Here, general manager Roger Huldi explains how they do it.

I was initially drawn to The St. Regis San Francisco due to its reputation for exceptional luxury and unparalleled service within the hospitality industry. The hotel’s commitment to delivering bespoke experiences and its dedication to upholding the St. Regis legacy of elegance and sophistication resonated strongly with me. Additionally, the opportunity to lead a team in one of the most vibrant and culturally rich cities in the world was incredibly enticing.

Tell us about a defining moment in your role that sticks out.

One defining moment that stands out for me was orchestrating a seamless and unforgettable event for a high-profile guest at the hotel. This guest had very specific preferences and requirements, and our team went above and beyond to ensure every detail was executed flawlessly. The success of this event showcased our team’s expertise and ability to exceed even the most discerning guest’s expectations.

The hotel’s biggest challenge during my tenure has been navigating the ever-evolving landscape of luxury hospitality amidst global shifts in travel patterns and guest expectations. We have adapted by innovating our service offerings, focusing on personalized experiences, and prioritizing health and safety measures without compromising the St. Regis commitment to luxury and excellence.
