Why we choose The Ritz-Carlton, Moscow

For sheer proximity to historic and legendary sites, this luxury hotel is the best in town

  • Experiment with vodka flights or indulge in afternoon tea in the Lobby Lounge
  • Soak up the ambience of the atrium’s Japanese garden
  • In addition to personal butlers, there are bath, shoe and technology butlers

This is a Ritz-Carlton property, so of course it’s a study in plush luxury. But what we love at the Moscow outpost are the to-die-for views—especially if you splurge on a Club Room, offering exclusive access to the Ritz-Carlton Club Level Lounge with a summer terrace overlooking the iconic Red Square. For vistas everyone can take advantage of, head to the fab O2 lounge on the hotel’s top floor and enjoy a drink with all that panorama.

What you need to know about the hotel

From dining to relaxation, this Ritz-Carlton delivers on its five-star promise

  • Ritz-Carlton Club Level rooms receive private check-in/check-out and access to the famed Club Lounge, with day-long refreshments and a stunning summer terrace
  • The rooftop bar and terrace, made of scenery-enhancing glass and steel, offers a Japanese menu and cutting-edge global music after dark
  • The 21,500-square-foot spa has 14 treatment rooms, relaxation hall, indoor pool, hotpool, sauna, crystal steam room, ice fountains and lifestyle showers

This spot on Tverskaya Street has been the home of landmark hotels since the 18th century, but today it’s the site of the Ritz-Carlton Moscow. Boasting a Russian classicism façade, the 11-story building offers 334 rooms that take you back to the glamour of Russian imperial décor, thanks to cherry wood and marble from Portugal and Altai.

There’s a whole city to explore, but the hotel makes it hard to leave with amenities like three restaurants and bars (serving fare from sushi to classic Russian), a decadent spa, state-of-the-art fitness center and phenomenal aqua facilities.

Where is it and what's nearby

A five-minute walk from Moscow’s Red Square, in the heart of the city’s cultural and business district

  • Gawk at St. Basil’s Cathedral, a 16th century church commissioned by Ivan the Terrible, a colorful commemoration of a Russian victory
  • Catch a ballet or opera at the renowned Bolshoi Theater, the national theater of Russia, which maintains the country’s classical music heritage
  • Known for its Impressionist collection, the Pushkin Museum features paintings and sculptures from the 13th through the 20th centuries

Whether you’re in town for business or pleasure, the Ritz-Carlton Moscow is an ideal location from which to access everything this international city has to offer. Just off Red Square and next to the Kremlin, it’s got a business district address and puts world-class shopping, theaters and concert halls within walking distance.

Moscow has a long list of historical, architectural and cultural treasures—so many that it can be difficult to narrow an itinerary. Fortunately, many of the highlights are literally a short stroll from the hotel. Among the must-do’s: Red Square, the oldest and most historic square in the city; the Kremlin, the spiritual and political hub of Moscow; and the Lenin Mausoleum, which is the final resting place of the founder of Soviet Communism.

How to enjoy Moscow

Candy-striped onion domes and point-perfect ballet, Moscow is a center of commerce and a 24-hour party town. Rich cultural heritage melds seamlessly into its 21st century incarnation, creating a city that buzzes with the sensation that things are happening here and now

  • Visit the Novodevichy Cemetery for a who’s who of Russian culture. Notable residents include Prokofiev, Shostakovich and Chekhov
  • Submit to Moscow’s nightlife. It has the well-earned reputation of hosting the world’s best bars and nightclubs  
  • Sample some of the many honeys at the gorgeous Pushkin Café, where you can enjoy afternoon tea and cake or a sumptuous dinner

For the quintessential Moscow tour, take the Metro (you’ll thank us for that tip, it is like no other public transport in the world), put on your walking shoes and saunter from Theatre Square to Red Square. Your route will take in the beautiful Bolshoi Theater and the palatial facade of the Metropol Hotel. Cross Manezh Square (the site of a huge underground shopping mall and respite from the bitter winters) and enter Red Square through the Resurrection Gate.

Red Square itself is a synonym for today’s Moscow. Near the center you will find Lenin’s Mausoleum, his waxen face still on view. At one side is the vast and imposing Kremlin, with its red fort walls, majestic towers and gold domed cathedrals. Facing it is a vast department store, albeit the State Department Store. And at the end, perhaps the most idiosyncratically beautiful of all of Moscow’s landmarks, St Basil’s Cathedral.
