the 196-room BEST WESTERN PLUS Atakent Park Hotel

Newly Constructed in the City of Almaty


ALMATY, Kazakhstan, Feb. 11, 2013
-- Best Western International, the World's Biggest Hotel Family®, continues its global expansion with the addition of the brand's first hotel in Kazakhstan, the BEST WESTERN PLUS Atakent Park Hotel, in the country's largest city, Almaty.

The four-star BEST WESTERN PLUS Atakent Park Hotel is newly constructed and has 196 rooms with 23 suites and conference and meeting space to accommodate up to 500. Hotel amenities include climate control rooms, mini-bar, safe, international direct dial telephone, free Wi-Fi and a gym and spa. Guests will enjoy dining in the hotel's full service restaurant Bastau, serving a menu of traditional Kazakh and European cuisines for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or relaxing in the Nomad Lobby Bar.

The BEST WESTERN PLUS Atakent Park Hotel is located in the center of Almaty, close to the business and financial districts, 30 minutes from Almaty International Airport and 10 minutes from the Republic Square. The hotel is part of the biggest exhibition complex in Almaty—Atakent Exhibition Centre.

"We are happy to announce the opening of the BEST WESTERN PLUS Atakent Park Hotel in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Whether our guests are staying with us for business or leisure, we look forward to providing a superior guest experience and exceeding our guests expectations with our Four-star hotel, service and amenities," said the hotel's owner, Mr. Talgat Abdullayev.

Kazakhstan is part of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), an organization of former republics of the Soviet Union. As part of a concerted effort to establish a footprint in this promising region, the company has also opened six Best Western branded hotels in the CIS countries of Russia, Ukraine and Moldova.

"This hotel represents a significant move forward in our development efforts in the CIS. We are both delighted and proud of the BEST WESTERN PLUS Atakent Park Hotel as our entry into Kazakhstan and look forward to establishing the brand further throughout the country and region," added Best Western's Vice President of International Operations Suzi Yoder.
