Marriott plots Russian expansion

Marriott International has announced it plans to double its bedbank in Europe by 2015 with a focus on developments in Russia.

The chain aims to have more than 30 hotels in Russia & CIS by 2015 and will have 80,000 rooms across the continent in three years’ time. New openings will include the Ritz-Carlton Almaty; Tsaghkadzor Marriott Hotel, Armenia; Baku Marriott Amburan Beach Resort, Azerbaijan and Renaissance Kiev Hotel, Ukraine as well as seven properties across Russia.

“We are very focused on our development here and have augmented our development resources to enable us to meet our ambitious growth objectives for Russia and CIS. We see particular opportunity in the capital cities for our luxury and lifestyle brands including The Ritz-Carlton, EDITION and Autograph Collection, as well as great potential in the mid-tier segment for our Courtyard by Marriott brand in regional cities across Russia,” said Carlton Ervin, chief development officer for Marriott in Europe.
