Staff was excellent. It was not in the center of town, and it was no more than a 20 minute walk to the Hermitage. 2 nearby Metro stations. Metro is clean, cheap, and safe. I walked a lot further in other big cities.
Another hotel plus is all the bottled water you want is free, St. Petersburg tap water is undrinkable.
Alissa the concierge was great and became our friend during that week. Great local restaurant advice. ATM and money exchange in the lobby. Nice restaurant and bar. We ate a great breakfast at $24 each, lots of fresh fruit, great breads, meats, cheeses, and smoked fish. Excellent oatmeal or porridge. Breakfast is free if you pay for your room.
The Renaissance is closer to the main sights but was three times the points. Not worth it to me. I am a big Courtyard fan and this is above and beyond a typical US Courtyard. I am a gold member and used points to stay, we were upgraded to a Jr. Suite very nice, river view of Sports Stadium. Loved the neighborhood, quiet, lots of trees, businesses, and students.
