On 2 November 2020 Corinthia St Petersburg was recognised as Russia’s Leading Business Hotel for the third time in a row at the World Travel Awards.
Corinthia St Petersburg has also won this title previously in 2019 and 2018.
Corinthia General Manager Eric Pere said: “For the third time in a row, we are honoured to receive such a prestigious award. In light of the challenges the year 2020 brings, its uncertainty and big influence to businesses and travel industry all around the world, this year’s award is particularly special. It underlines the exceptional professionalism and care our teams deliver every single day when looking after our guests and partners.”
The 388-room Corinthia St Petersburg is the only five-star property that offers such a large number of rooms and event spaces in the historical city centre. The hotel offers 17 convertible event spaces including the largest ballroom in St Petersburg, and caters for a variety of events, including international conferences, sumptuous banquets, private weddings and high-end events. It makes the hotel the leading meetings and events space in St Petersburg.
