03 Nov 2009

 

The Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the fastest growing hotel companies worldwide, announces the Park Inn Yaroslavl – the property with 150 guest rooms is scheduled to open in early 2013. The hotel is being developed by Regional Hotel Chain (RHC) – RHC and Rezidor have signed a strategic agreement (SDA) in March 2009 in order to develop at least 20 Park Inn hotels across the Russian Federation. “The Park Inn Yaroslavl is our third common hotel – following the Park Inn Kazan and the Park Inn Astrakhan”, says Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor.

“The prime location of our property in Yaroslavl is the keystone to its success. Situated close to the central railway station, the Park Inn Yaroslavl is sure to become a favourite hotel both for business and leisure travellers”, comments Victoria Sobolevskaya, General Director of Regional Hotel Chain.

Yaroslavl is located on the Volga River 250 kilometres northeast of Moscow and a key destination on the popular “Golden Ring” – the ancient “Golden Ring” towns played a significant role in the formation of the Russian Orthodox Church and are today open air museums featuring the unique architecture of the XII to XVIII centuries, including kremlins, monasteries, cathedrals and churches. Yaroslavl is also a city of scientists and students, and a centre for the engineering, chemical, textile and processing industries.

The Park Inn Yaroslavl is within 200 metres of the main railway station which has frequent daily services to Moscow. Besides 150 guest rooms in the lively Park Inn colours the new hotel will comprise an all-day-restaurant, a lobby & lounge, meeting facilities and a fitness room.

Park Inn is Rezidor’s young, dynamic and innovative mid market brand. Launched in early 2003 only, the portfolio today features more than 130 hotels with more than 24,000 rooms in operation and under development across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Park Inn prides itself ‘on mastering the essentials’ delivering a great affordable hotel experience within its class. Rooms are functional, comfortable, practical and most importantly clean and well maintained.
