"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.
