If football fever is slowly taking you over, then it’s time to book a trip to Moscow, host city of the World Cup’s opening game and home of the historic Kremlin, St Basil’s Cathedral and the landmark Red Square. This city offers up incentive ideas at every turn – from the sublime glory of Grand Kremlin Palace to the futuristic cosmonaut training in Star City.
Style mavens will want to check in to Design Hotels first Russian member property, the StandArt Hotel Moscow (right) set behind an impressive Art Nouveau façade.
This is design sleek at its most contemporary, with 105 rooms to welcome the cool crowds. Lounge about on the rooftop terrace for views of Pushkin square, enjoy modern dining at the Sever-Yug restaurant or simply relax with a traditional Russian steam room.
For closer proximity to Luhzniki Stadium, take a look at the latest offering from Hilton. The DoubleTree by Hilton Moscow Vnukovo Airport is set to become something of a C&I behemoth, boasting 432 rooms, 1000 square metres of flexible event space and two pillar-free ballrooms.
The hotel’s rooftop bar, SkyLounge, offers a panaromic vista across the city and is the perfect place to celebrate a victory, but if your team is on a losing streak, the hotel’s proximity to the Private Jets Terminal also makes it very opportune for a discreet getaway.
