|Rezidor signs the 40th hotel in Russia & CIS: Park Inn Omsk|
The Rezidor Hotel Group announces the Park Inn Omsk in Russia – the property with 131 rooms is scheduled to open in Q2 2010 and is the 40th Rezidor hotel in Russia & CIS. “This marks a further milestone in our history”, comments Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor. “We have been amongst the pioneers in Russia and are today the leading international hotel operator in this emerging region – with more than 10,000 rooms in operation and under development.” The company’s ambitious business development is active in regional and in key markets – including Moscow, St. Petersburg, Volgograd, Sochi and Rostov-on-Don.
The Park Inn Omsk is the first mid-market hotel of international standard in Omsk, the second largest Russian city beyond the Ural Mountains. “We see a huge potential for Park Inn in Russia”, says Kurt Ritter. “Our fastest growing brand is young, fresh and dynamic, and its friendly service responds perfectly to the mid-market needs of large industrial centres.” Besides 131 guests rooms, the newly build and centrally located property will feature a restaurant and lounge, a fitness centre and more than 600 square metres of conference & meeting space.
All major attractions of Omsk are nearby; such as the Commercial Zone, the Central Square and the offices of the regional government. The international railway station is 6 kilometres away, and the hotel is further advantaged by proximity to the Omsk Tsentralny Airport. Park Inn Omsk is also accessible from the region’s industrial areas where petrochemicals, tires, medial supplies, oil & gas equipment are produced.
