Hyatt Regency on the cards for Yekaterinburg, Russia

Hyatt International will operate the new 300-room Hyatt Regency Yekaterinburg, set to open in 2008. Construction has already begun and the hotel is set to be Hyatt’s second property in Russia, forming part of Hyatt’s continuing development within the country that also includes Grand Hyatt Moscow, which is set to open later the same year. Situated in central Russia, on the Asian side of the Ural mountain range, Yekaterinburg is Russia's fourth largest city, with an estimated population of over 1.3 million. The city, founded in 1723 by Peter I, has become one of the largest and most influential financial, industrial and cultural centres in Russia. Koltsovo International Airport is served by many of the major hubs in Europe and the Middle East. Located in the city centre, on the bank of the River Iset, Hyatt Regency Yekaterinburg has been designed by renowned architects Valode & Pistre of Paris. In keeping with the Hyatt Regency concept, the hotel will reflect the city in the design of its rooms and suites. In addition, all guestrooms will offer contemporary facilities. Hyatt Regency Yekaterinburg will also include over 2,400 square metres of conference and banqueting space. An 800-square-metre ballroom, six meeting rooms and two boardrooms cover a variety of meetings requirements. Guests will have the choice of dining in one of two restaurants, a lounge and a bar. The hotel’s main restaurant will feature an open kitchen with wood-burning oven while the hotel’s Asian restaurant includes its own open kitchen alongside a charcoal grill, woks and steamers. Other facilities include an extensive roof-top spa including three treatment rooms, a health and fitness centre, an indoor pool and parking space for 280 cars. “We are delighted with Hyatt’s appointment to manage a hotel that holds great importance to Hyatt International’s development both globally and within Russia,” said Hyatt International senior vice-president André Pury.
