Marriott sets sights on Moscow

Eastern Europe was the fastest growing market in Europe in 2013 for hotel operator Marriott, and the brand is planning further expansion in the area by the end of 2015.

Expansion in Russia is robust with six hotels slated to open in the next two years, including Moscow Marriott Hotel Novy Arbat and Novosibirsk Marriott Hotel, both set to open next month.

In Eastern Europe, the brand is also targeting Turkey. Two hotels have opened over the last couple of years, the Renaissance Istanbul Bosphorus Hotel in 2012 and the Renaissance Izmir Hotel in 2013.  The Istanbul Marriott Hotel Sisli, opening in March 2014, will be a flagship Marriott hotel in the central business district of the city.
