When only the best will do, the St. Regis Hotel Shanghai recently launched “Lifestyle Butler Service” for guests seeking to explore the area’s art world.

The hotel, the only one in Shanghai that offers 24-hour butler service to all guests, moved to expand the service by offering butlers to escort guests to private local artists’ showings and galleries.

The hotel said guests increasingly are seeking highly personalized trips with preference for some particular highlights, including galleries, museums and exhibitions.

Guests of the hotel can now be escorted by a St. Regist butler to meet local artists personally and visit their studios or their private viewings at galleries or museums that are not open to the public.

“Our aim is to provide the most personalized service to our guests and the opportunity for them to explore the Shanghai art community. More importantly, we provide a platform to promote and support local artists and an opportunity for art lovers to meet their favorite artists,” said Charles Abbott, general manager of St. Regis Hotel, Shanghai.
