The Ritz-Carlton, Moscow

Russian traditions mix with modern luxuries

The Ritz-Carlton, Moscow is an unapologetically Russian hotel that still maintains the global standards and elegance of the famous hotel brand. In fact, the staff here has taken national traditions and styled them into services fit for royalty: have a traditional Russian tea ceremony complete with the proper serving ware and classic costumes; order caviar with a vodka cocktail at the rooftop bar; or shop the hotel's jewelry and fur shops.

Another perk is that the property sits near famous attractions, including the Red Square and the magnificent former royal citadel, the Kremlin and Bolshoi Theater. You can take in the stunning view of these establishments from various spots in this hotel. Some rooms offer an unparalleled visage.

And when it comes to exploring parts of the city you’ve been admiring from afar, you can venture out with a guided tour organized by the property.
