On 2nd February 2018, Corinthia Hotel St Petersburg celebrated its 15th anniversary by arranging an anniversary gala for friends and partners.
The hotel team presented guests with the history and values of Corinthia Hotels Limited, while also sharing the achievements and plans of Corinthia Hotel St Petersburg.
The party was thrown for 300 partners and friends, in thanks for the many years of support and cooperation that have provided the hotel with a blueprint for success. The hotel treated guests to music and dance performances, as well as with a remarkable buffet from the executive chef and a delicious anniversary cake.
The 15-year tenure of Corinthia in St Petersburg has been characterised by many international rewards. Five times - in 2017, 2016, 2013, 2012 and 2011 - Corinthia Hotel St Petersburg was named "Russia’s Leading Conference Hotel" by the World Travel Awards, which is dubbed "The Oscars of the Travel Industry" and acknowledges outstanding achievements in tourism around the world. In addition, the hotel was named “Best Congress Hotel in St Petersburg” by the Russian Business Travel & MICE Awards in October 2015, and was recognised by the Russian Hospitality Awards as the “Best MICE hotel in Russia” in February 2016.
In fact, the 388-room hotel is the only five-star property which offers such a large number of rooms and event spaces in the historic city centre, with 17 convertible spaces boasting a total capacity of up to 1,000 people. The hotel caters for a variety of events, including international conferences, banquets, private weddings and high-end occasions.
Currently, Corinthia Hotel St Petersburg is implementing a large-scale investment project aimed at updating the design of guestrooms and the concept of the lobby.
In April 2018, the hotel will fully open 280 newly-designed rooms decorated in a style suited to today’s discerning traveller. Before this however, the hotel will be unveiling a beautiful new lobby in March 2018, modelled on the same light-filled, airy concept as Corinthia London’s Crystal Moon Lounge.
Corinthia Hotel St Petersburg was acquired by Corinthia Hotels Limited in 2002, undergoing a huge renovation and expansion in 2009 with around 100 million euros of investment.
In 2003, in the year of the 300th anniversary of St Petersburg, the city authorities granted the company the honour of a plaque near the Admiralty naming Corinthia as "Patrons of restoration with gratitude from Petersburg". It is a recognition of the fundamental and careful reconstruction of the three 19th century historical buildings on Nevsky Prospect, in which the hotel is located.
Corinthia St Petersburg is a 21st-century grand hotel located in the heart of the city, created with a passion for craftsmanship and an understanding of authentic, world-class service. It is one of the Corinthia Hotels’ collection of five-star hotels founded by the Pisani family of Malta.
