Pokrovka treats biz travelers to luxury

Here's a reason to look forward to your next business trip to Moscow. The Russian capital has a new all-suite address that's especially geared toward business travelers but will delight anyone who checks in, thanks to its well-appointed and smartly designed accommodations, helpful staff, free Internet access and ready-to-soothe French Algotherm spa.

With just 84 rooms in all, The Pokrovka Hotel is a MaMaison boutique property that sits walking distance from Red Square, subway access and plenty of shopping; plus, anything else you desire is simply a concierge call away.

Other impressive highlights of MaMaison's latest creation: Each level of the seven-floor Pokrovka features a fabulous, huge, black-and-white signature photo mural – follow closely and you'll see a storyline. The extraordinary 24-hour Numbers restaurant means you can have tea, vodka or a meal at any hour in a sexy setting. The romantic honeymoon suite houses a sleek hot tub built for two just steps from the bed. And the chairman's suite contains not only a piano, but also a life-size horse that's actually a lamp!

Travelgirl tip: Be sure to book a limo to the hotel in advance – it's the most efficient and safest way to get there from the airport.
