Well you enter the complex from the under pass, you'll see the hotel drive-by, and after that I don't remember

You cannot even visit a single tower completely with just one man, The guys working in the crescent doesn't know the guy working in the fairmont hotel, its that hard. Also If you have some care for your guide, you wouldn't be stupid enough as this guy to show his face and bring his name, they get terminated for this, and I didn't meet this guy in my trip.

No. The real reason why the Federation Towers are not included is because the CTBUH considers the spire to be its own tower and not a building. Under this assumption, Moscow's tallest "building" would be the East Tower at 360 meters.

Agreed, and this is NOT an attack against Islam, I just think it is vile and tasteless. It is only big to show off.

Though I also think it is vile and quite racist how I am not allowed in this city.
