This year, the stately Corinthia Hotel St. Petersburg, along SPB’s storied Nevsky Prospekt, celebrated its 15th anniversary. An opulent amalgam of three 19th-century facades, the grand hotel offers 388 refined rooms and suites, four restaurants and bars, a soaring lobby, and even the Samoilov Theatrical Museum, which displays costumes, playbills, and other Russian ballet and drama archives. The luxurious stay is a study in plush amenities—with sumptuous linens, velvet furnishings, and marble bathrooms, and inimitable service—from the uniformed doormen and concierges, to the barkeeps and waiters. But beyond these comforts, part of the hotel’s main draw its address—within striking distance of the State Hermitage Museum, Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, and the city’s gastronomic center—Rubinstein Street. Visiting the city soon? Opt for the “Art à la Carte” package at Corinthia, and along with unrivaled accommodations, you’ll get your fill of select venues like the State Russian Museum and Mariinsky Theatre. Check out some of the hotel’s highlights below.
