Lobanov Presidential Suite

Relive the grandeur and opulence of Imperial Russia at Four Seasons Lion Palace, located in a pristinely restored 19th-century royal palace designed by Auguste de Montferrand, the same architect who planned the adjacent St Isaac’s Cathedral. The Lobanov Presidential Suite, named for Prince Lobanov-Rostovsky who built the palace in 1818, sits above the hotel’s lion-guarded entrance and has a stunning terrace with tall columns that dominate the palace’s Russian Empire–style facade.

Inside, the decor is fit for a czar or czarina,with richly upholstered furnishings and crystal chandeliers. The full marble bathroom is truly special, with marble on the walls and a marble soaking tub.
