A beautiful highlight of my 1,000+ nights of hotel stays over the years
I stayed two weeknights at the Radisson Royal Hotel Moscow, receiving a Platinum upgrade to a business suite on the fifth floor.
To put it mildly, opulence, luxury, and service on are tasteful display at the hotel. I was so impressed with my personalised arrival experience that I knew I would be in for a treat when I entered to my room. The staff exude the old world charm that is all but lost in Western Europe but still is quite alive in Eastern Europe.
My room was a two-room suite with a large bathroom, a large sleeping room, and a very comfortable and cozy sitting room with five overstuffed seats around a low table. All of the appointments were of the highest quality--moulding, window treatments, carpet--all very well done. The bed certainly was no disappointment and ranks among the most comfortable I've enjoyed.
I took advantage of many of the hotel's services--transport, fitness, spa, and concierge. Transport smartly was arranged with a luxury E-class Mercedes from Vnukovo to the hotel and a return trip to Domodedovo. The large fitness centre has the latest equipment to keep up with anyone's fitness regime. It certainly met my meagre needs! The spa services offered me a chance to unwind and really to enjoy a break from the day's activities. Finally, the knowledgeable concierge expertly helped me to plan my touristic days in Moscow--which is truly an amazing city--so that I was able to see every one of the attractions I intended to see.
Another comment worthy of sharing and understanding is regarding location. The hotel overlooks the Moscow River and affords a beautiful view of the district. The nearest metro at Kievskaya is about a ten-minute walk through a park. The metro stop is just below a massive shopping centre. Great location!
I am looking forward to my return trip to Moscow where I am 100% certain of another stay at this hotel
