The hotel is located in the very heart of St. Petersburg — on the beautiful St. Isaac's Square, just next to St. Isaac's Cathedral — a masterpiece by Auguste de Montferrand and one of the main symbols of the Venice of the North. Other major landmarks, including the State Hermitage and Palace Square, are just a couple of blocks away.
Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St. Petersburg offers 177 spacious and comfortable guest rooms, including 26 suites, featuring state-of-the art amenities to satisfy the needs of the most discerning customers.
Dining in the hotel is led by Michelin-starred Executive Chef Andrea Accordi, who has a wealth of international experience. Percorso, restaurant of fine Italian cuisine, features the show kitchen and the best wine cellar in the city.
Sintoho, Asian restaurant, derives its name from the cities of Singapore, Tokyo and Hong Kong, and offers the menu focusing on Japanese flavours with northern Asian influence. The restaurant features a sushi-bar and a semi-private dining room with a teppanyaki table — the only one in St. Petersburg.
One of the palace's original courtyards has become a glass-roofed winter garden — home to the Tea Lounge, the all-day dining venue that provides a sunny setting for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and a light supper menu. Comfortable seating adjoins an indoor garden abundant with trees and flowers.
Xander Bar, named after Russian Tsar Alexander I, boasts a double-faced fire place and amazing views to the Admiralty. The walnut-faced walls convey a warm, welcoming atmosphere, further enhanced by the live fire. The menu offers a great choice of traditional Russian zakuski (bites) and best selection of champagne by the glass in St. Petersburg.
The hotel is also home to a sumptuous four-level SPA facility within one of the Lion Palace's original courtyards with Russian steam rooms, six treatment rooms offering the finest international skincare and massage treatments, a unique triangular relaxation pool under the sunlit glass dome, and a 24-hour fitness center.
