Marriot officials voice brand expansion plans
06.08.2004 13:50

Marriot officials voice brand expansion plans Marriott International, which officially opened its sixth hotel in Russia on Friday, is planning to establish a string of its brands across the country within the next few years, a company official said.

Speaking at the official opening ceremony of Renaissance St. Petersburg Baltic Hotel, Karl Kilburg, senior vice president of the Continental Europe division of Marriott International Lodging, said the company intends to promote several of the Marriott's brands in Russia, including Ritz-Carlton Hotels, Marriott Hotels, Courtyard by Marriott and Renaissance Hotels & Resorts.

Marriott International Inc. is a leading worldwide hospitality company, headquartered in the United States and represented in 64 countries and territories worldwide. Marriott Lodging operates or franchises over 2,400 hotels and resorts across the globe.

Renaissance St. Petersburg Baltic Hotel is Marriott's first project in St. Petersburg but the company is looking closely at the local market. Governor Valentina Matviyenko, who attended the opening ceremony Friday, made an enthusiastic and welcoming speech.

"As soon as this hotel is completed, the Marriott and Baltic Construction Co. will start on a second hotel [in the city]," she said, without elaborating.

Owned by a subsidiary of the BSK, the hotel is located in Pochtamskaya Ulitsa just off St. Isaac's Square and offers 102 spacious rooms in a former 18th-century mansion, which previously served as the private residence of Mikhail Yakovlev, a schoolfriend of national poet Alexander Pushkin in the 1820s and 1830s.
