... two other tables occupied. Was this the Sheraton Moscow, or had I been tele-transported elsewhere as I slept?
With a full belly, camera, local map, and immigration registration papers appropriately secured, I set off for the day. In Russia, you must register with the local authorities wherever you go. And if stopped by the police, you must have these registration papers with you. I can only assume this is a throwback to the good old days of ...

Day 3 was a more relaxed day. We met our guide at 10am to do a tour of the Kremlin and it's buildings.
I had hoped to join the queue to go through Lenin's Mausoleum but time was not on my side so I missed out on seeing his waxy corpse. Our guide had previously referred to the display as "it" rather than "him" implying it is not actually his body but a ...
... Kremlin, did have similar kites. Anyway after discussions between our local guide and the authorities, she is sent away to a luggage storage and returns a short time later, a little embarrassed and being watched by some officials. After finishing the tour it's back to the hotel to rest up for a vodka shot night tour of Moscow. Running a bit low on cash we decide to top up. My card is placed in the ATM, because Shelley's is cancelled. All the appropriate buttons are pushed, the ...
... part of hanging out with friends - where deferring can easily be cast in a positive light - is pretty necessary for travel companions, where one's comfort is of the utmost importance. I have faith that as we travel together more we'll move away from friend-ly deferral of desires and more toward a comfortable give-and-take, but for these first few days, feeling out when to assert these opinions was a tough game indeed, particularly when one feels that they're constantly sharing ...
... participate in actual building construction in this project. It was completed by I.Kurochkin, but was seen by officials as "too simple" and Melnikov was asked to make the building somehow more interesting. As you see, Melnikov brilliantly completed the assignment, constructing the amazing round window to add more natural light to the building and playing with forms.
This building was the last buiding Melnikov worked ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ararat Park Hyatt Moscow
Our family of four stayed at the Ararat Hyatt Moscow for 4 days and it was fabulous. One of the better hotels if not the best hotel I've been to. It's an oasis of luxury in an amazing and somewhat wild city. Upon entering the hotel the staff welcome was friendly and efficient and there were a number of security people about. We took the glass elevators up to our rooms, which were meticulously designed. We had two rooms; a park room and a park deluxe room, both were spacious and had fantastic marble entrances and washrooms with heated floors. The beds were better than heavenly and everyone slept in like teenagers. We were high up and the view wasn't amazing, but I believe some rooms have a better view.
Housed in a repurposed 19th century building the Hotel Ararat Park Hyatt offers luxuries that Lenin, Stalin and other Communist Party leaders would have kept for themselves. You can brag about your bourgeois accommodations at the gravesites of these discredited men in Red Square, a seven-minute walk from the hotel's front door.
Great Facilities; Lousy Concierges
The physical plant is perfect. Beautiful beds, bathroom, lobby, etc. But the concierge service is useless. All they want to do is sell you something. Won't help with ANYTHING that does not entail the sale of something. Marriott Aurora is very close by and HAS to be better, or at least cheaper.
Great hotel, perfect location within 5mins walk of the Kremlin and Bolshoi. Staff helpful but unobtrusive. Downside is the price, especially meals / drinks but no worse than any other top-end hotel / bar in Moscow.
For Moscow this hotel has the best facilities. The rooms are large and bright with a big shower and seperate tub. The bed was very comfortable. Expect outrageous prices rooms at $500/night, $25 drinks and a $50 breakfast. Like all Moscow hotels the prices are expressed in units which are converted to roubles at a dollar/rouble exchange rate of 32 to 1 not 27 to 1 which is the actual exchange rate.
Ararat Park Hyatt Moscow compares favorably with other five star hotels worldwide. It is new and well looked after. The rooms are spacious, most with good views. The staff is also very helpful (relatively speaking, do not expect any pampering). The Armenian restaurant was very good, although the drinks -and minibar I found quite pricey. The location allows you to see the Red Square, even if you only have half an hour to spare. If you feel nostalgic, you can always go to Metropol and the likes and have a drink, but make sure you come back to Ararat where the staff is friendly and the heating surely works!
Best hotel in Moscow
Excellent hotel. Staff very helpful (not to be taken for granted in Russia!). Room was very comfortable and spacious, bars (although very pricey) are very good. Will go there again.
Stayed here Sept 02 in a Park Suite. The hotel is amazing with a top notch spa, lovely outside terrace overlooking the Bolshoy Theatre and the Kremlin. The meals in the Armenian restaurant and sushi bar were excellant and on par with London prices, however the drink prices throughout the hotel were very high. The hotel is located near the other top hotels and a short stroll to St Basils and the Kremlin. We checked out the Metropol hotel while we were there, what a dump.
Comfortable hotel, great food
Excellent sized room and bathroom. Great food. Brilliant gym. Highly recommended
