In Late November I decided to visit Russia as I wanted to go after all the tourists have gone home and before it got too cold. I started my trip in Moscow and stayed at the Ritz Carlton Moscow. I have asked the hotel to arrange a car – I was told I got lucky as it only took 1hr 20mins to get to the hotel from the airport.
A nice BMW was waiting…
A wide angle view as my bags are put in the trunk.
On the highway. There was traffic on and off.
We approach the hotel, Its a block off of Red Square.
The entry is fancy…
I get a club level room so I check in at the club, with a glass of bubbles.
I was informed my suite is downstairs from the club and connected by an internal stairway. The team informs me of a suite upgrade.
The landing on the lower floor.
So this is my room.
The plan seems bigger than most other rooms.
I open the door to a long hall way in my room….
My door shuts behind me.
And a living room. I am liking my upgrade.
View from the other end of the living area.
Some times I travel and need to wear a suite to go to dinner or a meeting and I really appreciate a place where I can hang my jacket. Its too bad its harder to find these in hotels these days.
My sleeping area seen from the living room.
The bathroom was mostly marble, as it should be.
With a heated towel rack to keep me warm in Russian winter weather.
The mini bar is tempting, but with club access, I get my drinks and snacks there.
The coffee and tea are complimentary but again I can get it at the club lounge.
My room had an interior court view, but the club lounge has a view of Red Square! A view is better than no view.
The cookie game is on, and they are all good…
Then I went to the hotel bar and restaurant on the very top floors, I wanted to try Vodka – because why not? I am in Russia… So I try a few…
Then I mix things up a little with this…
Back to basics.
Again I get some air after my drinks and enjoy the view again. Then I get some sleep… I had just arrived and checked in…
in the morning, I go to the club for breakfast.
The set up is great.
Start off with eggs, row and some salmon.
Eggs Benedict a la Russe – again why not I am in Russia. I had coffee with my meal and one last cup of Tea to end my meal.
I leave the club to start my tour of Moscow. Also these walking dogs seem to be a theme around the hotel.
The view of Moscow on the other side of the hotel, the gray clouds make the gold domes shine brighter.
Who ever said hotel views do not count, most likely have not stayed here. This place I can not wait to go back.
