Renaissance Moscow Monarch Centre opens - Newest gem in brand's global portfolio
Wednesday 7, April 2010
Renaissance Hotels has added another gem to its global portfolio of more than 140 hotels – the 366-room Renaissance Moscow Monarch Centre under a franchise agreement with Interstate Hotels & Resorts. The second Renaissance located in Moscow, this contemporary urban hotel offers the city’s largest single area conference and convention facility.
This hotel is the 34th Renaissance Hotel in Europe and just one of the latest openings for Marriott International as it works towards its recently announced goal of doubling its presence in Europe by 2015. Three more Renaissance properties will open in Europe in London, Amsterdam and Budapest by 2012.
Located in the heart of Moscow’s commercial district and in close proximity to the city’s EXPO center, the Renaissance Moscow Monarch Centre is ideally situated for business and group travelers. The hotel is part of a mixed-use development including a four level shopping mall.
“We are thrilled to be opening our second Renaissance in Moscow,” said Tina Edmundson, senior vice president lifestyle brands. “At Renaissance Hotels we believe travel is about moments that transcend the every day and new discoveries. We look forward to welcoming guests to our newest Renaissance and all the moments of unique discovery they will uncover.”
In celebration of its opening, the Renaissance Moscow Monarch Centre is offering an introductory package for 6500 RUB ($222 USD) per night through September 1, 2010.
The hotel offers elegantly appointed guestrooms, including 40 extended-stay suites. Guestrooms feature rich, dark wood and warm color accents as well as the latest in technology with flat screen televisions and high-speed internet access. The extended-stay suites offer additional living space, kitchenette, refrigerators, dishwasher and cook top.
The hotel’s bi-level executive lounge offers sweeping panoramic views of Moscow and a terrace where travelers can enjoy a cocktail on a warm summer day.
Authentic culinary delights are offered at the hotel’s all-day restaurant Mozaic which features a mix of international and Russian specialties including borsch and Sibirskaya Korona Classic beer. The Allegro Lobby Bar & Lounge features a wide selection of creative cocktails, loose teas and dining options. The hotel’s fine-dining restaurant Premier offers innovative fusion cuisine.
The meeting and event facilities of the Renaissance Moscow Monarch Centre are some of the largest and most modern in Moscow hotels today. The stunning Andreevsky ballroom features sparkling contemporary crystal chandeliers, making it the perfect location for any event. Twelve conference rooms with large pre-function spaces total 2500 square meters.
The hotel features an indoor swimming pool, state-of-the-art fitness facilities, as well as massage rooms and sauna.
Renaissance Moscow Monarch Centre participates in Marriott Rewards, the guest reward program that allows its over 30 million members to earn points or airline miles for each dollar spent during each stay.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
