A Moscow Gem Joins Radisson Collection
Radisson Hotel Group, one of the world’s largest and most dynamic hotel groups, is delighted to announce the addition of one of Moscow’s legendary landmarks, the Radisson Royal Hotel, Moscow, to the exceptional Radisson Collection, effective January 2019.
Reserved only for the group’s most outstanding properties, Radisson Collection’s global portfolio boasts a glittering array of local exceptional hotels and one-of-a-kinds. And, with the arrival of the Ukraina Hotel, currently named Radisson Royal Hotel, Moscow – a property that blends imperial opulence with sophisticated contemporary design – the collection ascends to new heights.
Formerly the tallest hotel in Europe, it remains an imposing presence on Moscow’s skyline and commands still more imperious views. Situated directly on the banks of the Moskva River, it’s one of the capital’s ‘Seven Sisters’, a family of much-vaunted neoclassical skyscrapers.
Elie Younes, Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “This property is the perfect illustration of what Radisson Collection stands for; and it’s only natural that it’s the first ever Radisson Collection property in Moscow. Combining timeless architecture with truly exceptional experiences, the hotel is a destination in its own right and the ideal base from which to explore one of the most exciting and vibrant cities in the world. Another landmark joins our select collection of prestige hotels.’’
Comprising 501 rooms and suites, the hotel’s palatial proportions are echoed in its luxurious interiors. Elegantly appointed, each room is awash with exclusive furniture and the finest materials – delivering a truly unique 5-star experience.
Attuned to the philosophy of Radisson Collection, guests will find no detail unattended to. More a holistic leisure destination than simply a hotel – with an art collection, Diorama of Moscow, 26 on-site shops, an Olympic-sized swimming pool and its own collection of 10 yachts offering city river cruises – the hotel defies easy definition.
Another key characteristic of Radisson Collection is the outstanding level of service guests can expect during their stay. Team members take care of the tiniest detail, with 24/7 room service and Guest Relation Managers available throughout the day. The team also maintains a close dialogue with guests, making sure their every need is looked after as they enjoy truly exceptional experiences and memorable moments.
Moscow’s most exceptional sky bar
For gastronomy enthusiasts, there are 19 outstanding restaurants and bars on site, serving dishes in the gastronomic traditions of various countries from early morning until late at night. In a trifecta of dazzling bars, the 31st-floor Mercedes Bar is the star of the show. Affording the property’s best views and boasting an equally vertiginous array of cocktails – crafted by expert mixologists – the space is adorned with retro Mercedes-Benz posters and modeled after the Art Deco style that recalls 1920s New York.
With complimentary use of the Royal Wellness Club, all guests receive access to the Olympic-size swimming pool, 600-meter fitness center with innovative sports equipment and jacuzzi.
For business travelers, the hotel provides exceptional meetings and events facilities, as well as Moscow’s largest Congress Park with the capacity for over 1,500 people. Each of the 16 spaces is equipped with the latest multimedia technology, whilst reflecting the hotel’s characteristic grandeur.
With the ideal city center location, the hotel is the perfect starting point from which to experience Moscow’s stand-out attractions, with the Red Square, St Basil’s Cathedral and The Kremlin all within easy reach.
