The Rezidor Hotel Group
The Rezidor Hotel Group, has announced the development of the
Park Inn Novosibirsk. This new development will further expand
Rezidor's portfolio as one of the fastest growing hotel companies
worldwide and the leading international hotel operator in Russia/CIS
with almost 13,000 rooms in operation and under development.
The mid-market property is developed in co-operation with Regional Hotel Chain
(RHC), one of Rezidor's most important development partners in Russia. It will
feature 150 rooms and is scheduled to welcome the first guests in Q1 2014.
"We are delighted to have signed the 8th contract with RHC. It further strengthens
our common target to open 10 to 20 Park Inn hotels across Russia", commented Kurt
Ritter, president & CEO of Rezidor.
Novosibirsk is Russia's third largest city and one of the most significant hubs in
the country - located east of the Ural Mountains and known as "Gateway to
Siberia". Novosibirsk has one of the most diversified economies in Russia and also
one of the strongest and most stable. The city has an immense industrial capacity;
rising banking and financial sectors; strong research, development and educational
institutions; and a considerable exhibition and conference capacity. It also has the
highest concentration of business and financial activity in Siberia, including
international banks like Raiffeisenbank, Commerzbank, KMB Bank and BSGV-France. 30
km south of Novosibirsk there is also the scientific community of Akademgorodok,
with 15 universities and dozens of institutes which are part of the Russian Academy
of Sciences. Since the fall of communism, Akademgorodok has grown into a major
technology hub leading to its referral as 'Silicon Forest'.
"Despite these demand-generators, Novosibirsk lacks internationally-branded hotels
- like many major cities in Russia. We see great opportunities there and look
forward to opening the future Park Inn as one of the premier business hotels in
town", said Kurt Ritter.
"With our strategic focus on the development of Russia's regional hospitality
sector with international quality accommodation for both leisure and business
travellers, we include Novosibirsk into our top-10 priority list for the RHC
roll-out across the most investment attractive and business dynamic regions", added
Vladislav Smirnov, general director of RHC.
The new hotel will be conveniently located in the city centre, near to the main
railroad terminal and subway station. Besides 150 modern and colourful guest rooms,
the hotel will offer an all-day-dining restaurant, lobby bar, gym and 5 meeting
