Rated 5 out of 5 by hockeyplayer I wanted to keep this a secret
Stayed at the hotel for nearly 6 months since their opening in 2011. After opening pains, the hotel staff under GM's direction, have resolved most of the initial kinks and pains, and have truly made me feel more at home over these long nights than any other place I've stayed in over a long travel life. Food quality is exceptional, service is great, rooms are spacious and clean, staff is friendly, what's not to like?

Rated 5 out of 5 by mari Beautiful Gem, Great Location and Best Service
This W is superb - staff is attentive, rooms are nice and location is perfect. I have stayed in many W's around the world and this is one of my favorites.
I live in New York for over 9 years but originally from St. Petersburg and before W - I stayed in many other hotels which cannot even compete with this gem.
If you are looking for an ultimate W experience, this hotel would be a great choice for you. It is modern, super clean, stylish, with great roof top and spa. It is a walking distance from Nevskii prospect, Hermitage and pretty much across the streed from St Isaac's Cathedral.
This is my second time staying here and I will be coming back again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wayne2014 Fantastic Stay!
My wife and I stayed at the W for 6 nights in mid-February 2014. The hotel was in a perfect location, the room was clean and had all the comforts of home (including a Nespresso coffee maker), the spa/fitness center were very nice and the staff were excellent!
Starting with check-in, Nastia was very nice and helpful after our long flight from North America, and later Pavel was great just dealing with our questions/asks of advice, and finally Daria who arranged for balloons to be sent to my wife's room to help celebrate a milestone birthday - all staff were extremely frienclly and helpful. What a wonderful start to our Russian experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MishaK Outstanding Hotel and Service!
I spent one night at the W St. Petersburg (too short of a stay) and enjoyed every step of it. From the doorman to the front desk to every person on staff, they were immediately attentive, friendly, and offered help and service with everything. It started with the welcome email a week prior to my trip, to the front desk taking me to my room to ensure it met expectations. The dinner restaurant was very, very good quality, though a bit pricy (for wine, where a half bottle was as much as all the food combined). The breakfast was good, but not great, the sausage was quite inedible... but otherwise it was a good breakfast. The gym is small, but most hotel gyms are, but it has quality equipment and some dumbells. Back to the room - one of the nicest rooms, great shower with tons of space, and the room design and cleanliness overall made me want to stay for weeks. I was checking out the next day but needed them to hold my luggage while I went to work meetings, which was not a problem at all with the staff, and when I arrived back (though already checked out) the front desk staff offered me stay for that evening's party, and the bar staff checked on me twice just to make sure if I didn't need anything. Outstanding guest experience, and I can't wait to come back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by travc Good for tourists
Great location. Rooms: lots of space but design is a "not so luxury WOW!" with white inexpensive furniture. But the beds are marvelous (for these who prefer soft beds) Some faults in the room: 0 shelves in the closets; bathroom door not closing at all, Pay-TV never worked (4 days) in spite of 2 people coming to fix it, Wi-Fi in the room was not always working properly but ok. Bathroom: good design, but also "finished in a hurry". No pressure of hot water. Big problem - food. Only one gastronomically pretentious restaurant with very short cart and expensive. Lobby bar - nice but has too short a menu to compensate for it even though good Hamburgers; sandwich and salads. Drinking Water in the room in Russia is very important all 5 stars give you 2 time 0.5l. Here only 0.2 l bottles - not enough. Room service food choice is a bit better. No executive floor. But Great location and People are all trying a lot. So with a bit of fix may become best place in STP to stay !

Rated 4 out of 5 by ChrisK New W location.
Hotel with a great location in the heart of Petersburg, Russia. Modern contemporary design of the hotel is clean and easy to welcome everybody without shocking, Hotel does not deliver any WOW factor in design matter.
New hotel and new staff, so may give the impression of lack of skills. We expected same service as visiting other W Hotels, but people are not yet there. It is compensated though by polieness of people. Hotel is worth to be recomended, because of the location and even without special kick in the design of the interior it is the only contemporary hotel in the city.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JAYDEE33 Great hotel and Staff
Overall this place is great. my only quibble was housekeeping. towels not recovered, bathrobes not tidied and shower gels not replenished. water also not replenished forcing to pay for bottled water. address this and then it would have been absolutely perfect.
