News for the Hospitality Executive
26 Feb 2013 - The Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the fastest growing hotel companies worldwide and a member of the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, announces the Radisson Blu Sheremetyevo Airport Hotel, Moscow. The First Class property featuring 379 rooms is scheduled to open in Q2 2014. It is Rezidor’s second hotel at Sheremetyevo – the group already successfully operates a mid market Park Inn by Radisson hotel at the airport.
The new First Class hotel is owned by the Norwegian company Wenaasgruppen; one of Rezidor’s most important multi unit owners: In Russia alone, Wenaasgruppen owns 9 hotels with a total of 4,000 rooms operated by Rezidor.
“This agreement further strengthens our position as one of the leading airport hotel operators in Europe. It also confirms our commitment to the Russian market where we are the leading international hotel operator” said Wolfgang M. Neumann, President & CEO of Rezidor. The group currently has 45 hotels with 11,600 rooms in operation in Russia/CIS & Baltics, and 29 hotels with 6,700 rooms under development. In and around Russia’s Capital City Moscow Rezidor’s portfolio comprises 6 properties with more than 1,700 rooms.
The Radisson Blu Sheremetyevo Airport Hotel will be the only hotel featuring a direct walkway link to the international terminals. Besides 379 rooms with Radisson Blu signature services such as free high speed internet access the property will offer two restaurants and two bars including a 600m² bar on the 11th floor with a panoramic view over the airport. Additional services will comprise more than 43 meeting rooms including a 200m² multifunctional hall, a crew lounge, gym and sauna areas.
The recently renovated Sheremetyevo Airport is the hub of Russia’s national carrier Aeroflot providing the ideal transit point for international, regional and domestic travellers. The new AeroExpress train connects the terminals and downtown Moscow in just 35 minutes. Sheremetyevo serves more than 22 million passengers annually, and is set to grow further as it now has the largest capacity of any airport in Moscow or Russia.
