Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St. Petersburg
Four Seasons invites guests to live within a magnificent 19th-century royal palace. Completed in 1820 as a residence for Princess Lobanova-Rostovskaya, the palace is the work of architect Auguste de Montferrand (who also designed the neighbouring St. Isaac’s Cathedral), assisted by Italian sculptor Paolo Triscorni. With classical white columns against Imperial-yellow walls, this stately building has been popularly known as the “House with the Lions”, in honour of the two white-marble lions guarding its main entrance. This St. Petersburg landmark is depicted in period paintings and works of literature, including Alexander Pushkin’s famous 1833 poem, “The Bronze Horseman.” Immediately positioned among Russia’s finest hotels, Four Seasons provides the dream St. Petersburg luxury accommodation experience: living like Russian royalty in an authentic 19th-century palace. Heritage hotel interiors, including the main stairway, vestibule and entry hall, have all been painstakingly restored to their original 1820 beauty. Newly appointed luxury hotel areas reflect Imperial Russian style, while feeling fresh, light and contemporary. With St. Petersburg’s most spacious five-star accommodations, Four Seasons offers 177 luxury hotel guest rooms, including 26 suites. Views to the north showcase Alexandrovksy Garden and the Admiralty building, and to the south, highlight St. Isaac’s Cathedral, St. Isaac’s Square and the statue of Czar Nicholas I. Accommodations on the newly added fifth floor open to rooftop terraces – many with priceless cathedral views. Ensuring all guests feel as pampered as royalty, Four Seasons provides state-of-the-art comfort and attentive, intuitive care – whether you are visiting St. Petersburg for leisure or business.
