Firstly, it took forever to get to the hotel from the airport and having to go through security at the entrance to the lobby made me feel uncomfortable. Service? What service. Location? Excellent.
Food and Beverage. There's some great restaurants close by. Just ask the Concierge. Breakfast was average.
*BE CAREFUL* One morning I headed out for a run and just as I turned the corner I noticed a man walking in front of me carrying a package. He dropped what seemed to be a huge wad of money and before I could say anything, someone ran up and grabbed the money then approached me and said "come with me and I'll split this. It must be $10,000.00" I didn't have a chance to say anything when I heard the man who was walking in front of me yell "Police, Police" Help" He ran towards me and I ran as fast as I could back to the hotel advising the concierge of what just happened. This, the concierge said was something that's common as they try to make you an accessory and force you to pay them so they don't call the Police. This incident and the overall service mentality made me not want to visit Russia again. Oh, and of course the metal detectors. Did I mention that.
