Morgans Hotel Group has just announced they will be expanding their signature luxury brand into Russia with the opening of Delano Moscow in 2015, following the opening of Delano Marrakech slated for September 2012 and Delano Cesme scheduled for 2015. The Moscow property will be the brand’s third international Delano-branded property.
The Delano Moscow will open in Moscow’s International Business Centre, also referred to Moscow City, and will feature 160 rooms, extensive fine dining and nightlife outlets and top-of-the-line hotel facilities and guest amenities.
The hotel is being descried as “Russia’s first ever mixed-use space, combining high-end residences, offices and retail in one impressive complex.”
According to Michael Gross, CEO of Morgans Hotel Group “With the introduction of each new Delano property, we bring to life the ethos we created in South Beach, while uniquely blending our vision with the markets we enter. Moscow is an exciting city and we could not have found a better partner to align with than Capital Group to further extend the Delano brand.”
Vladislav Doronin, chairman of Capital Group, added, “Moscow City has become a financial center of international standard. It comprises mixed-use skyscraper complexes totaling 4.5 million square meters that have become headquarters for major international companies. A modern transport infrastructure has been developed within the business district, which includes two operating metro stations and a high-speed railway currently under construction that would connect Moscow City with international airports. Thus, it is obvious that Moscow City needs high-quality hotel service, and Delano Moscow would become the first hotel to open here. I have no doubt it would become the best project to meet the needs of the tenants and the guests of the business center.”
In addition to the Delano Moscow, Morgans Hotel Group has signed management agreements for ten hotels that are slated to open over the next three year, starting next month with the scheduled opening of Delano Marrakech. Morgans Hotel Group currently has properties in New York, Miami, London, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston and Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
