Hotel Check IN at W Hotel St Petersburg | St Petersburg, Russia | Today I moved to the W Hotel in St Petersburg for the next two nights. Host hotel of the AURORA Fashion Week in Russia. Small, modern and following the style and design of W Hotels in the world. Located only block away from the Neva River and the Hermitage Museum. The square close to the W Hotel, is what locals call the Five Stars Square, because most of the Five Stars Hotels are located around it, the next addition will be the Four Seasons St Petersburg to arrive in 2013. Check out and follow my Instagram Photo Album on Russia.
The rooms have the classic striking colors that characterizes W Hotels, where the Fuchsia , grey and some pastels are the key color pallet. As for this property in particularly, I really like the design on the doors to the rooms, which replicate inside the rooms, with the closets and bathroom. The views from the rooms, unfortunately are nothing special.
The lobby area is quite cozy, featuring a large living room, foyer and bar, with a chic fireplace. Without a doubt following once again the lines of W Hotels, where this is the social and happening heart of the property.
Upon arrival, we had to wait for over 10 minutes for someone to come to the door and help us with the luggage. And in the end three girls came, and since we are gentleman’s, we ended up carrying the luggage ourselves. We did the check in which was quick and smooth, but our luggage did not make it to the room till 25 minutes after. What is wrong to having a Bell Boy I wonder right…. ?
We tried already the restaurant of the hotel miX for lunch, and despite being rather small, have to say the food was very good. The menu of the restaurant and bar is by signature of Alain Duccase.
Still to explore is the Rooftop bar, of which I have heard great things about, and the Bliss Spa & Fitness Center. So more later. Carlos Melia Luxury Travel Curator – www.carlosmelia.com
