For our final stop in Europe we went to Moscow for 21 hours. I decided to check out the The St. Regis Moscow Nikolskaya for our one night stay. It is a category 4 SPG hotel with paid rates of ~ $320 per night. With points, we had the choice of 10,000 points per night or 5,000 points plus $75. I decided to do the points plus cash option. Using 10,000 points would’ve given me a value of 3.2 cents/point; (320/10000). The points plus cash option gave me a value of 4.9 cents/point; [(320-75]/5000).

The hotel is a 30 min drive from the airport and is in a very central location right next to the Red Square; 10 min walk. You can request the St. Regis Bentley for airport transfers which costs 18,000 Russian Rubles (~$300) each way!! We opted for the $30 taxi 🙂

The St. Regis Moscow Nikolskaya has a very old school luxurious type of feel. it is definetly very nice. I mean checkout the dome in the lobby!

The seating area in the lobby felt a bit too crammed with chairs and couches.

The check in process felt a bit longer than normal for some reason. We were at the check in counter for at least 25 mins. After that we were on our way to the 6th floor to our room.

Very large and chic room door.

Once you enter the room, the bathroom is to the right. Very fancy, with a nice standing shower and bathtub.

There’s a desk and a chair with an ottoman by the window. The room has ridiculously high ceiling.

The king bed was very comfortable.

The hotel has a small indoor pool, which I checked out briefly the next day before leaving to the airport.

 

The St. Regis Moscow Nikolskaya Bottom Line:

 The St. Regis Moscow Nikolskaya is definitely a hotel I’d come back to the next time I’m in Moscow. The hotel’s location is very central and convinient. We were walking distance to a lot of the places we wanted to checkout in the short period of time we were there. The room is very comfortable and luxurious with a great price especially when using points plus cash.
