Go Sightseeing in Moscow from the Ritz-Carlton Hotel

- Melissa Mewdell,

There is only one way to really experience Moscow: in style. And we can’t think of a better place to stay in this richly historical place than the Ritz-Carlton Moscow. Perfect for a relaxing sightseeing vacation, you will also love the fine food and spa at this Moscow hotel.

Moscow: the heart of Russia! If you’re visiting this beautiful historical city, you are going to want to see it in style. The best place to stay here is the Ritz Carlton, Moscow. The location can’t get better, with the hotel situated right next to The Kremlin (a historical fortified complex where the President lives) and the Red Square (the most famous square in Moscow, and maybe even the world!).

With 334 rooms and suites, this hotel is fairly large and provides guests with a lot of options and space. For example, the suites are 2550 square feet, the executive studio suites are between 680 and 860 square feet, and the rooms are between 452 and 570 square feet. We love the polished dark cherry and Burl wood décor, and the marble washrooms.

When you’re in Moscow, be sure to visit the city’s best sites. You’re already close to two of the best ones: the Red Square and The Kremlin. But, you’ll also want to see the Novodevichy (New Maiden) Convent and Cemetery (which is a quiet retreat from the bustle of the city and where many of the country’s most famous writers, artists and politicians are burried), Tolstoy Museum on Prechistenka and Gorky’s House.

Ritz-Carlton in MoscowAfter a long day of site seeing, you’ll probably be in the mood for a fine meal, and maybe a massage. Luckily, the Ritz Carlton in Moscow has it all.

Featuring the 02 Lounge (a rootop lounge and sushi bar with panoramic views of the Red Square and The Kremlin), you’ll be able to get a nice drink, and a nicer view there. Check out Caviarterra for brasserie-style food with Italian influences. The Ritz-Carlton Bar and Lobby Lounge has a cozy fireplace, fine cigars and drinks, where you can kick back and relax, Russian style.

If you need a massage, book yourself an appointment at the Spa. It features 14 treatment rooms, and two couple treatment rooms, relaxing saunas and more. You’ll feel totally rejuvenated and relaxed after a visit here.
