This was my first trip to Russia and I was very impressed. The hotel occupies one of 7 magnificent towers (there were planned to be 8) built under Stalin's regime which combine Manhattan-like lines with Russian spires. The room was very comfortable and really well decorated. The river view was good, though try to get something above the 6th floor and everything was immaculately clean.
I only had breakfast but it was comprehensive and high quality. The only complaint would be the lack of ironing and tea/coffee facilitates in the room. Internet access is free and fast. Remember they don't have western European smoking laws (yet) so there is smoking in the bar area.
I did not get time to use the spa.
I really wish they would let you open a window but that may be an American hotel chain thing rather than a Russian thing.
Just watch out for the traffic. TOTAL nightmare. Taxi to the airport 1700 rubles and it took an hour and a half to go 20km around the ring road. Use the express train.
