The best thing about this hotel is the bed, and that is it! Sorry, and the bathroom amenities, great shower gel and shampoo, but otherwise, avoid this overpriced, small, ill conceived wannabee W that will never liv up to the true ethos of the brand. Russians might find this a funkt new kind of hotel, but those of us who travel will quickly realise this is no real W. Small, pathetic lobby, ridiculously over priced restaurant with mediocre food at best, and poor food more the norm. This is a sorry example of a brand that should stand for unique life style experience. There are far better in St. Pete, including 4 Seasons, Kempinski, Astoria, D`Angleterre, Corinthia, Radisson Royal, shack across the passage, basically anything is better.
One exception, in the summer, the best bar is on the W roof!!! Other than that, avoid. Shame there is no direct lift so you could avoid the hotel lobby and all the associated wannabees!!!
