What many travelers consider to be the city's finest luxury hotel—and with these rates, it ought to be—does its best to dazzle guests with sumptuously and traditionally furnished guest quarters that evoke tsarist Russia, as do the views of the onion domes of St. Basil's. A decadent spa with swimming pool, lavish lounges, and a stunning rooftop terrace are among the many, many amenities. Even if it's all too rich for your blood, it's worth a stop just to check out the
gold and marble foyer.
