Carlson Rezidor to open Moscow property

Carlson Rezidor is opening its eighth property in Moscow, the Radisson Blu Olympiysky Hotel.

The 379-room property is expected to open in the first quarter of 2017 and will be located just north of the city centre – adjacent to the Olympic sports arenas that were built for the 1980 Games. The hotel is part of a 75,000sqm multifunctional development.

The property will also feature a restaurant, a bar on the ground floor and a panorama floor. For meetings and events, 1,750sqm of space will be available, including a ballroom. The hotel will also have spa and leisure facilities and car parking. 

Landmarks within walking distance from the hotel include the Russian Army Theatre, the Nikulin Circus and the Moscow Cathedral Mosque, the main mosque in the city. Moscow’s three international airports are between 24km and 43km away from the site. 

"We are delighted to add a further flagship to our portfolio in Moscow and to strengthen our position as the leading international hotel operator in Russia/CIS & Baltics. We remain committed to this emerging market and will expand our network across the region together with our partners," said Elie Younes, executive vice president and chief development officer of Rezidor, speaking at the recent Russia & CIS Hotel Investment Conference in Moscow. 

In Russia/CIS & Baltics, Carlson Rezidor currently operates 59 hotels with 15,200 rooms and has 18 hotels with 3,250 rooms under development.
