January 23, 2014 // Franchising.com // KRASNOYARSK, Russia and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Worldwide today announced the expansion of its Hilton Garden Inn brand in Siberia, with the opening of the 259 guestroom Hilton Garden Inn Krasnoyarsk. Created in the mid-1990s, today the award-winning Hilton Garden Inn brand of upscale, yet affordable hotels offers quality services and amenities for smart, value-conscious business and savvy, leisure travellers at more than 580 hotels in 19 countries.
Adrian Kurre, global head, Hilton Garden Inn, said, "Hilton Garden Inn will offer visitors to Krasnoyarsk an internationally recognized standard of accommodation, providing guests with affordable comfort and convenience. We look forward to welcoming our first guests, who I am confident will enjoy and appreciate the breadth of facilities we have on offer."
From cooked-to-order breakfasts, free Wi-Fi internet access and HD televisions in all guestrooms, to a state-of-the-art fitness centre and a 24/7 business centre, Hilton Garden Inn Krasnoyarsk aims to provide all the features that both business and leisure travellers need for a successful stay.
Set on the banks of the Yenisei River in the Vzletka district, the city's dynamic business centre, the mid-market brand hotel is set within a unique leisure complex that includes a health club, swimming pools, billiards centre, and a bowling centre which recently hosted the QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup. Whilst being a significant cultural and industrial center of Eastern Siberia, Krasnoyarsk is also the largest transport hub in the region. The railway station is a major junction of the Trans-Siberian Railway and the Yemelyanova International Airport is just 40 kilometres from the hotel.
As one of the oldest cities in Siberia, Krasnoyarsk offers a wealth of cultural activities. Guests can enjoy performances of The Krasnoyarsk State Opera Ballet Theatre or visit art galleries, such as Vasily Surikov Museum, which houses artworks from famous Russian painters. For those who want to experience the beautiful Siberian countryside, the Stolby National Wildlife Nature Reserve, is one of the largest nature parks in Russia and offers breathtaking views, as well as adventurous mountain climbs.
Simon Vincent, president, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Hilton Worldwide, said, "Located along the historic Trans-Siberian Railway, Krasnoyarsk is a culturally important location for Hilton Worldwide to open its latest hotel. Hilton Garden Inn Krasnoyarsk joins a number of our hotels already, or due to open at major points along the famous route, from Moscow to Perm. Forecasted to be one of the ten most visited countries in the world by 2020, and due to host the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games, Russia is a growing international destination, where we see great opportunity for further expansion across our portfolio of brands."
