Vitebsk Railway Station is the closest mainline station to the Staybridge Suites, less than ten minutes' drive away. It serves trains to Belarus and the Baltic States, as well as suburban trains to Pushkin (Tsarskoye Selo) and Pavlovsk. Moscow Station can be reached in around 20 minutes by car, while Ladoga and Finland Stations are at least 30 minutes' drive from the hotel.

Local Sightseeing

Although the Staybridge Suites St. Petersburg is outside the main sightseeing district of St. Petersburg, there are a few sights of interests in the near vicinity of the hotel. The building in front of the hotel on Moskovsky Prospekt - now the Moskovsky Concert Hall - was previously the Kapranov House of Culture of the Tanners Union, a fine example of constructivist architecture dating from 1931, fully reconstructed in the building of the Holiday Inn Moskovskye Vorota.

The Holiday Inn is named after the magnificent Moscow Triumphal Gates - "Moskovskye Vorota" - a large triumphal arch erected in 1838 to mark Russian victory in the Russo-Turkish War of 1828-1829. Designed by renowned neoclassical architect Vasily Stasov, they were once at the southern entrance to St. Petersburg.

Across the road from the hotel is the Voskresensky Novodevichy Convent. Although somewhat denuded in the Soviet era, it still features several attractive churches and other buildings from the mid-19th century, built in the traditional Russian manner.
