We spent ten days in Russia and 6 of them were at Club Carlson hotels. The Radisson Royal in St. Petersburg was a fantastic hotel in as good a location as you can get. The service was perfect and they were kind enough to upgrade us to a junior suite even on a points stay. The Radisson Royal is Moscow was beyond belief. The hotel is absolutely magnificent. One of the nicest I have ever stayed at. We were upgraded to a suite on our points award stay and the decor was as good as it gets. The buffet breakfast was amazing. The hotel has unbelievable shopping including the only Rolls Royce dealership in Russia. Every last detail in the hotel is impeccable and I can't find enough good things to say about the hotel. The only negative is the location is not as central as some hotels, but it is worth the extra distance for the benefit of staying there.
