Rezidor announces the Park Inn City Centre Sochi in Russia
Wednesday 1, September 2010
The Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the fastest growing hotel companies worldwide, and the Regional Hotel Chain (RHC), the leading dedicated regional hotel developer in Russia, announce the Park Inn City Centre Sochi.
The hotel featuring 160 rooms is scheduled to open in 2013, in time for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. RHC is one of Rezidor’s most important partners for future business development in Russia – in 2009 both companies have signed an agreement for up to 20 Park Inn hotels centrally located across major cities in the country.
“With this new Park Inn, Rezidor now has five properties in operation and under development in and near Sochi – this is a clear sign for our commitment to the region and to Russia as such”, comments Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor. “With our strategic focus on the regional hospitality sector development we define Sochi as a top priority location and as the most dynamic investment region for international quality accommodation of both leisure and business travellers”, adds Christian Meyer, Director International Partners at RHC.
The Park Inn City Centre Sochi will be located in the heart of Sochi, adjacent to the main railway station. Besides 160 spacious and colourful guestrooms, the hotel will offer a restaurant, lounge bar, fitness room and business/meeting facilities.
Sochi, the pearl of the “Russian Riviera”, is emerging as a trendy destination for travellers, evidenced by its ever-rising number of visitors and its selection of American and European retail shops. Developers have ambitious plans for Sochi and, in coordination with government-funded Olympic development, numerous projects are underway to make Sochi a must-see international destination. In addition to its famous ski slopes, Sochi also attracts visitors in the summertime, when its long stretch of Black Sea beaches beckons travellers. In spring, when the weather favours, it is possible to challenge the slopes in the morning and lounge on the beach in the afternoon.
Park Inn is Rezidor’s young and dynamic midmarket brand – focusing on the essentials and attracting guests with a stress free and comfortable stay. The rapidly growing brand has been launched in early 2003 only, and today features 100 hotels in operation across Europe, Middle East and Africa.
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.
