Lenin stayed at this St. Petersburg landmark, which opened in 1912, as did Rasputin, H. G. Wells, and Isadora Duncan. Today it's popular with celebrities, wealthy tourists, and executives. The rooms and suites are done in an elegant, effortlessly stylish, color-coordinated design, with fresh flowers by the bed, marble bathrooms, and friendly, attentive service. Breakfast is very good, with a wide range of choices and the option of having it in your room. The Italian Borsalino restaurant is excellent, although a bit overpriced.
