You just never know what to expect in Russia.
The cities are fast paced, self-absorbed, rude and slightly edgey and frankly, so are most of the people, hotels and restuarants.
The staff at the Corinthia impressed me from the outset, bending over backwards to help us with the papers before we had even left home, and that first impression was confirmed upon arrival - professional and prompt at every opportunity, organising cars, ballet tickets, restuarant bookings etc.
The hotel itself is located on busy Nevsky Prospect, walking distance to shopping, canal tours, subway, and many attractions. There was a security person at the entrance at all times, which was a comfort as the city can be overwhelming at times - it was good to know we could just duck back inside with the family for a breather if need be.
The room was quality and the hotel facilities excellent, the only letdown was the Imperial restuarant, which was expensive, but with poor service and an unimaginate menu.
Overall coming back each night to a hotel where you knew you were welcome and valued helped make the whole St Petersburg experience worthwhile.
