We stayed at W St Petersburg in October 2011 for a long weekend. Overall we were very impressed by this hotel. The location could not have been better, with both the Hermitage and the Isaac Cathedral a 3 minute walk away. There are also several good restaurants close by, as well as bars and shopping malls.
The rooms were quite spacious and nicely decorated (we stayed in the smallest room) and as the hotel is quite new it felt airy and fresh. The hair dryer did not work when we arrived, but it was replaced within ten minutes. The minibar was ok and there was an espressomachine in the room.
We did try the Mix restaurant by Alain Ducasse for dinner - and it was as you might expect - amazing. Excellent food, and fairly priced considering the quality. The lobby bar was sleek with a nice crowd and the drinks were good. The music was fantastic with a live dj. There is also a roof top bar open in the summer.
The Norwegian food and bev manager Andreas provided excellent service and really went above and beyond to make out stay better. The rest of the staff were also very friendly and the concierge was very helpul in making reservations and giving recommendations. We have stayed at many W hotels in Europe and the US, and this hotel has been the best for service so far.
We had a great stay at W St.Petersburg and would happily recommend this hotel to others.
