I have always had a soft spot for this hotel. If I were to find an analogy, Belmond Grand Hotel is a like a private membership club in New York where locals socialize and tourists stay. The cafe, restaurants, decor and live music transport you back into the 19th century. Banquet halls are perfect for meetings and receptions. All in all, it is definitely my most favorite hotel in Saint Petersburg. In addition, it faces Russian museum as well as Nevsky Prospekt - you can pretty much walk everywhere and see everything if you stay there. Hermitage is 25 m away by foot, Kazansky Cathedral is 5 minutes away- you just can't beat the location, the service and the sophisticated luxury.
