Situated in Moscow’s historical centre, the Four Seasons is a short walk from Red Square and the Kremlin, just metres from the State Duma and perfectly located for all that both old and new Moscow has to offer The domes of St. Basil’s Cathedral and Nikolskaya Tower can be seen from the hotel and the nearby GUM Department Store is home to some of Moscow’s best shopping. Some of Moscow’s most beautifully decorated metro stations are also to be found near the hotel and are not only artistic masterpieces in their own right but also provide a vital connection to the rest of the city, which itself is notorious for its congestion. Those wishing to avoid the metro may, however, use the hotel’s concierge service to arrange limousine hire as well as transport to and from the airport and car hire.
There are a number of unique room layouts among the 180 rooms at the Four Seasons with almost 40 different variations available. Entry-level guest rooms are divided into 3 broad categories: Deluxe Rooms (40-59sqm), which have courtyard views from the higher floors; Premier Rooms (40-59sqm), which feature bathroom oases and flat-screen televisions; and spacious Grand Premier Rooms (64-72sqm), which not only enjoy all the features of Premier Rooms but also have iconic views of Moscow’s historic landmarks. Suite options include the Four Seasons Suites (79-85sqm), which feature spectacular views that complement the open and spacious rooms; the Four Seasons Executive Suites (81-97sqm), which offer plenty of space for business travellers; Deluxe Suites (98-119sqm), which combine elegance with comfort, and come complete with separate living and sleeping areas as well as guest powder rooms; Premier Suites (166-198sqm), which benefit from separate dining areas and a layout that can be configured into either a two- or three-bedroom suite; and Grand Premier Suites (158-214sqm), which have some of the best views available in the hotel.
