What should I list under "place of visit" in the application?

In filling out the application for a Russian Visa, should we list the hotel we selected for the visa support document or where we actually plan to stay?  The problem is that one of the hotels isn't listed on Way to Russia's website and we are not staying in a hotel for another night.  How do we go about listing this?

Check out the new visa support form on http://waytorussia.net/Services/VisaSupport/Tourist.html - it has all the answers there.

Basically, if the hotel you're staying in is not listed in the form, choose any other hotel and on the next order confirmation page you will see the contacts of visa support company – just write them a note asking to put the hotel you are actually staying into the invitation.

Same applies if you're staying with friends.

If you don't know where you're staying yet, we recommend you to read our city guides on http://waytorussia.net/destinations.html - choose the hotel you like and put it into the form. You can always change your mind later.
