Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., has officially opened the St. Regis Moscow Nikolskaya. Owned by Rutsog Invest, the hotel marks the entry of the St. Regis brand in Russia.
Located on Nikolskaya Street, which connects Lubyanka Square and Red Square, the hotel occupies one of the most prestigious buildings in the capital. Situated close to the Duma (Russia’s parliament) and major business hubs as well as commercial and governmental buildings, The St. Regis Moscow Nikolskaya is ideal for business travelers. The hotel is also within walking distance from historic attractions and sites, including the Kremlin and Bolshoi Theatre as well as GUM and TSUM luxury department stores.
Originally constructed in the 1870s as the residence of Count Orlov-Davydov, The St. Regis Moscow Nikolskaya offers 210 spacious guest rooms and suites with belle époque interiors, an elegant tribute to the building’s heritage. The luxurious rooms offer postcard-perfect views of the city’s historical downtown and the bustling streets around the hotel.
The St. Regis Moscow Nikolskaya offers five culinary experiences, including Orlov Lobby Lounge, which serves signature St. Regis afternoon tea and its own signature Bloody Mary cocktail. Called the Red Maria, the cocktail is prepared with marinated horseradish and fresh beetroot juice, a nod to the traditional borsch. Also on property, Osteria A Tavola serves Italian cuisine and Venetian-style cicchetti. Robusto, the Cognac Room at St. Regis, offers a discreet ambiance suited for enjoying cognacs and cigars.
The hotel will unveil two new dining experiences helmed by acclaimed Michelin-starred chef Kamel Benmamar in June. A partnership with Moscow’s renowned restaurateur Arkady Novikov, the signature restaurant will offer succulent grilled meats in a fashionable ambiance. Inspired by American diners, The Farsh, a specialty burger eatery, is set to serve the city’s best burgers in a more casual setting. Additionally, guests will be able to purchase fresh meats, oil and spices at the delicatessen store located on property.
The Alexandria Beauty Lounge & Spa spans1,600 square meters and has nine treatment rooms, an indoor pool with a sky-themed ceiling fresco as well as a sauna, hammam and fitness center.
The St. Regis Moscow Nikolskaya offers a private rooftop bar with panoramic views of the Kremlin for intimate gatherings and functions. In addition, the hotel features one ballroom and four meeting rooms all with natural light.
