Once you step inside, past the renovated turn-of-the-20th-century facade, you'll likely feel very much at home—if home is the United States and if you've ever stayed at any of this ubiquitous chain's other business-oriented hotels. You'll even find eggs Benedict on the breakfast buffet. The Western-style rooms are spacious, and some overlook a peaceful courtyard. A round central staircase ascends from the lobby's sunny atrium. Service is pleasant and Red Square is half
a mile (1 km) away.
