5 Over-the-top Hotel Butlers from Around the World

May 16, 2017 -

While luxury hotels and resorts have always offered superior service and accommodations to their guests, with the high demand for a personalized luxury hotel experience, many hotels have now revamped the ultimate amenity that many guests overlook: butler services.

Hotels around the world have kicked it up a notch by increasing each butler’s scope of work and are now offering 24/7 services, mobile apps to place requests, and more.

Here are five hotels in various regions of the world with over-the-top butler services that are worth the splurge for your next vacation:

Europe

Located in the heart of the Cannes, guests who check into the lavish rooms and suites at Hotel Barrière Le Majestic Cannes will experience unlimited butler service throughout their stay. Whether it’s a cocktail refill on the property’s private beach, fetching a dress from Paris for the Cannes Film Festival or arranging specially catered activities to further explore the French Riviera – butlers go above and beyond to ensure guests have a star-studded experience.

United States

Located in the heart of Manhattan, The St. Regis New York hotel offers a signature butler service created by John Jacob Astor IV himself. The service has remained one of the hotel's signature offerings for more than a century. Butlers at The St. Regis begin their work before guests arrive with an in-suite beverage service, unpacking & pressing services and a dedicated butler service desk for guests to take advantage of 24-hours a day.

A distinct, 1920s-inspired Charleston hotel for the well-heeled traveler, The Spectator provides a true representation of the historic hospitality roots the South is known for with a personal butler for each guest. Delivering a 360-degree experience, the butlers are professionally trained by the Charleston School of Protocol and coordinate everything from personalized itineraries and packing services to complimentary breakfast delivery in bed and nightly turndown service with a luxurious robe and hand-crafted cordials.

Asia-Pacific

Butlers at the luxurious, five-star Mandarin Oriental Bangkok will personally welcome guests on arrival and whisk them away for a private in-suite check in before unpacking luggage – leaving guests with more time to explore the city’s cultural sites or the hotel’s award-winning restaurants and spa.

Caribbean

When guests arrive at the Iberostar’s Grand Collection resorts, a personalized butler greets them at check-in and then accompanies them to their suites to discuss preferences, unpack and press clothes, and explain the sublime and opulent 24/7 offerings. Once settled, guests may request services like a warm bath with fresh rose petals and oils from the property’s garden, all from the mobile app.
