Four Seasons Hotel Moscow is on track to open early next year, and has just named its first-ever General Manager: Massimiliano Musto is a 15-year veteran of Four Seasons, and is currently General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Alexandria at San Stefano, Egypt. In June, Musto will make the transition from Alexandria to Moscow, joining the pre-opening team as the Hotel prepares to open its doors.
Musto's tenure at seven Four Seasons properties over the years including Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita, Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi and Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel, has trained him to lead the team in one of Europe’s most competitive luxury markets.
The Four Seasons Hotel Moscow is a modern replica of the famous 1930s Hotel Moskva. The original hotel was demolished in 2002 and an identical replica of the facade was constructed in its place. The exterior architecture was recreated according to the design of architect Alexei Shchusev. During reconstruction, the Hotel was completely rebuilt and transformed into an ultra-modern luxury hotel complex.
Located on Manezhnaya Square adjacent to the entrance gates of Red Square, views will include the Kremlin, the historic Duma and the domes and spires of Saint Basil’s Cathedral. The Bolshoi and Maly Theatres as well as the city’s high-end shopping district are steps away. The Hotel will be home to two restaurants, a tea lounge, bar and indoor poolside café. The Hotel will also feature a 25,403 square foot spa, indoor pool and function space including a ballroom, banquet room and five meeting rooms.
Accommodations at the hotel will include 175 rooms, including 36 suites.
