W is very well located among the city’s key tourist destinations: one block from St. Isaacs, two from the Admiralty, four from the Hermitage. The rooms are nice-sized for an inner-city hotel, have traditional W appointments (i.e., modern, sleek, white), and are very clean. Pricing is good for a major “European” city. We received excellent service throughout the hotel, from the bellmen to reception to concierge to housekeeping to the restaurant and rooftop bar. Staff provided excellent information and recommendations, was helpful with arrangements, and quickly met our every request.
The hotel houses an Alain Ducasse restaurant, and we ate dinner there twice. The food was very good – though not the stellar fare I’d expect to have from a Ducasse establishment – and the service was outstanding, highly attentive. The dining room and kitchen staff teamed up to help bridge our language barriers and provide fine vegetarian meals for one of us.
Our only complaint about this hotel was that there was little space to store our clothing. The sole closet was about 30 inches wide, with two drawers taking up space at the bottom. We were there for 6 days out of a 17-day trip, and had to work from/around suitcases the whole time. We’d recommend they lose the hammock-like easy chair and add a chest of drawers or armoire.
We will definitely stay at W during future visits to St. Petersburg.
