SUZDAL, RUSSIA—Continuing its global expansion, Best Western International has added a fifth hotel, the Best Western Art Hotel Nikolaevsky Posad in Russia.
The Best Western Art Hotel Nikolaevsky Posad complex is comprised of eight two-story buildings covering two blocks. The 133-room property has 46 superior rooms in the main building and between 8-11 spacious suites in the other buildings.
Each hotel room has a unique design with carefully selected furniture and antiques. The hotel is air conditioned with free Wi-Fi, a mini-bar, bathrobe and slippers in all rooms. Hotel guests can enjoy fitness and spa center facilities, which include a gym, sauna, Turkish bath, Jacuzzi, massage and beauty treatments.
This property offers guests a choice of three different restaurants serving traditional Russian and European cuisines for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and a pub that offers an extensive variety of homemade micro brews. The hotel also features five modern conference rooms, a concert hall, a sports arena that can accommodate 800 people and an Olympic-sized swimming pool.
“The addition of the Best Western Art Hotel Nikolaevsky Posad underscores the strength of the Best Western brand, as it is the first internationally branded property in Suzdal. We believe that it will be the first of many future Best Western hotels in the historically important Golden Ring,” Suzi Yoder, Best Western vice president international operations, said in a statement.
“Our pipeline in Russia has additional projects in Ivanovo, Zelenogradsk and Kaluga and highlights our commitment to continue to grow the brand in Russia as well as the other CIS countries,” added Yoder.
