On December 5th, 2011, the InterContinental Moscow officially opened its doors to the public, even though over the last month, the hotel has been accepting guests, so it seems as if Christmas has come early for Russia.
A source had the opportunity to spend a few nights in the hotel and states:
“Hotel has very central location (main shopping street, 10 min from Red Square). Design is very modern with classic Russian elements. Standard rooms are not very spacious but comfortable with fantastic bed and mirror TV in bathroom. Restaurant food are quality prepared but not outstanding (may be they will improve it later). From my point a view (I live in Moscow) Intercontinental is the best place to stay in Russian capital now…maybe situation will change after Hyatt renovation completion in summer 2012.”
Based on the hotel grand opening and rave reviews, only time will tell if the hotel will live up to its standard, however, for guests interested in viewing the InterContinental Moscow for the next weekend room rates start at $362 per night.
