The Radisson Royal Hotel, St. Petersburg in Russia was awarded with Europe’s Leading Landmark Hotel 2018 at the World Travel Awards on 30 June.
The hotel opened its doors in 2001 as the first Radisson hotel in the city of St. Petersburg, and is very proud of its history - especially that of the Saigon Bar, located at Nevsky Prospect in the heart of St. Petersburg. The cafe hosted many famous visitors like Queen Victoria and King Gustav from Sweden as well as some of Russia’s greatest artists and historical figures, Mikhail Glinka the composer and Iosif Brodsky the Nobel Prize Winner.
The Radisson Royal Hotel, St. Petersburg underwent a complete refurbishment in 2017, where all guest rooms and corridors were redesigned and modernized. However, it still preserves some of the original heritage throughout its current interior. The hotel accommodates business or leisure travelers who like to enjoy a taste of luxury while residing in the city center of St. Petersburg.
"It's a great honor and fantastic recognition to receive this award on behalf of the team, who are dedicating their efforts to provide personalized Memorable Moments to each guest," said Claude Bulté, General Manager and District Director Northern Russia, Georgia and Beijing.
St. Petersburg is a city with a long, rich history and heritage, and we're all proud to be a part of this with the Radisson Royal Hotel, St. Petersburg.
