The Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the largest and most dynamic hotel companies worldwide, announces the Park Inn by Radisson Pulkovo Airport in St. Petersburg. The mid-market property featuring 200 keys is scheduled to open in Q1 2014. Carlson Rezidor’s portfolio in Russia now comprises 42 hotels in operation and under development. In St. Petersburg alone, the group operates and develops 6 hotels with more than 2,800 rooms.

“We further strengthen our position as the leading international hotel operator in Russia/CIS & Baltics. This region remains one of our key focus areas for future business development”, commented Wolfgang M. Neumann, President & CEO of Rezidor. “We also remain committed to grow Park Inn by Radisson at major travel hubs and to penetrate deeper into selected markets”, Neumann continued.

The Park Inn by Radisson Pulkovo Airport will be located directly adjacent to the new Terminal 3 of Pulkovo – Russia’s third largest airport after Moscow’s Domodedovo and Sheremetyevo. Terminal 3 is set to become the primary terminal for all international flights to and from the city, and will be linked to the new hotel via an enclosed walkway. Besides 200 comfortable guest rooms and suites, the property will offer an all-day dining space, lobby and bar area of 470m², 20 meeting rooms totalling 438m² and a fitness centre.

St. Petersburg is Russia’s second largest city, its financial, industrial and cultural centre and the country’s most popular tourist destination – St. Petersburg has a strong leisure component, accounting for 40% of all travellers. The demand for both business and tourism related travel is expected to increase with the new airport terminal expansion, the modern conference and exhibition centre construction and the 2018 FIFA World Cup tournament.
