Formerly the tallest hotel in Europe, the property remains an imposing presence on Moscow's skyline and commands still more imperious views. Situated directly on the banks of the Moskva River, it's one of the capital's 'Seven Sisters', a family of much-vaunted neoclassical skyscrapers.
"This property is the perfect illustration of what Radisson Collection stands for; and it's only natural that it's the first ever Radisson Collection property in Moscow," Elie Younes, Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, comment. "Combining timeless architecture with truly exceptional experiences, the hotel is a destination in its own right and the ideal base from which to explore one of the most exciting and vibrant cities in the world. Another landmark joins our select collection of prestige hotels.''
Comprising 501 rooms and suites, the hotel's palatial proportions are echoed in its luxurious interiors. Elegantly appointed, each room is awash with exclusive furniture and the finest materials.
In terms of F&B, there are 19 restaurants and bars on site, serving dishes in the gastronomic traditions of various countries from early morning until late at night. In a trifecta of dazzling bars, the 31st-floor Mercedes Bar is the star of the show. Affording the property's best views and boasting an equally vertiginous array of cocktails - crafted by expert mixologists - the space is adorned with retro Mercedes-Benz posters and modeled after the Art Deco style that recalls 1920s New York.
With complimentary use of the Royal Wellness Club, all guests receive access to the Olympic-size swimming pool, 600-meter fitness center with innovative sports equipment and jacuzzi.
For business travelers, the hotel provides exceptional meetings and events facilities, as well as Moscow's largest Congress Park with the capacity for over 1,500 people. Each of the 16 spaces is equipped with the latest multimedia technology, whilst reflecting the hotel's characteristic grandeur.
