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.

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.

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."
