W St Petersburg

8 Jun 2017

Our Sapsan train from Moscow arrived at St Petersburg's Moscow Station around 7:15PM. We were met by W hotel's driver and made our way towards the parking area situated across from the station:

Our ride was a Porsche Cayenne:

The driver drove enthusiastically but after our Uber ride in Moscow, nothing could faze me anymore. We arrived at the hotel after a short 20 minute ride:

The W's lobby area:

Welcome to the White Nights:

I had no luck with an upgrade, even after applying my Suite Night Awards. Was granted a standard Wonderful Room on the 7th floor, the second highest floor of the hotel:

Some shots of the small but adequate room:

Buffet breakfast was served every morning at Cococo Restaurant:

The spread was ok but service was "comically bad" as Lucky reported, no doubt due to the language barrier. Request for a teaspoon to stir our cup of coffee resulted in another cup of coffee being delivered sans teaspoon:

The lobby staff were exceptionally helpful and we were always warmly welcomed whenever we left or arrived back at the hotel throughout our 3 night stay. Welcome door mat was changed throughout the day, which I thought was cool:

The most pretentious sign yet:

The hotel concierge arranged our tours as well as tickets to both Swan Lake and Nutcracker Ballet. All in all, it was a pleasant but not exceptional stay.
