It's just a short walk to the Nevsky from this branch of the Starwood-owned W, which brings a bit of New York sleekness to St. Petersburg. Rooms are modern and glamorous, with interiors by the Italian designer Antonio Citterio, the W's comfy signature beds, and a Nespresso machine for coffee. The spacious and luxurious bathrooms have heated floors, a rain shower, and high-end bath amenities. Celebrity chef Alain Ducasse's miX restaurant takes up part of the lobby, helping keep things sceney there.
