Up in the guest rooms, things look rather modern and a bit flashy which we like. Amenities are still W standard including Bliss toiletries. But internet access has been listed as costing 750 rubles for 24 hours which works out to be $25 a day. For internet! Now we're truly afraid to see what these room rates look like!
W St. Petersburg Nyet Happening Until March
Nevertheless, when the hotel opens in March it promises "spectacular views of St. Issac’s Cathedral" and a happening bar scene where "mingling and cocktails are the new social glasnost." (Note: fortunately the phrase "communist cool" is not found anywhere on the site.) You can also expect a terrace bar, a spa and a WET pool on-site.
