Welcome to the vibrant “Venice of the North,” where layers of history fuse with modern energy — no more so than during the city’s famed annual White Nights Festival, when all-night celebrations and events celebrating summer’s never-ending twilight electrify the city.

Year round, St. Petersburg, formerly Petrograd and Leningrad, also informally known as Piter — is the gathering place of in-the-know Russians and international jetsetters, and in the past served as the choice destination of the country's aristocrats and tsars.

Located deep in the heart of Saint Petersburg where the city's influences - history, art, and business - connect, W St. Petersburg invites its guests to escape from the ordinary.

I have stayed in this hotel with my wife and we loved everything. The front desk staff were exceptionally helpful and quick to response for any inquiries. They helped me to send a package via DHL and booked my return ticket to Moscow. I would highly recommend and would stay there again for my next trip to St. Petersburg.
