KRASNODAR, Russia - As Hilton Worldwide prepares to double its portfolio in Russia this year; it announces the opening of its fourth hotel in the country, Hilton Garden Inn Krasnodar.  Hilton Garden Inn becomes the first internationally branded hotel to welcome guests in the city, which is the economic and cultural hub of southern Russia.  Expecting to double the number of hotels it operates in Russia to eight this year, Hilton Worldwide will increase its presence in Moscow as well as see entry into the cities of Krasnoyarsk and Voronezh.

With 165 guestrooms and an extensive range of facilities Hilton Garden Inn Krasnodar is set to establish itself as a market leader within the developing cultural and economic hub of the region.  The property enjoys a prime central location on the junction of Krasnodar's two principle streets, ulitsa Krasnaya and ulitsa Mira, the former is the cultural heartbeat of the city, acting as a pedestrianized zone on weekends in order to host public entertainment events. 

Befitting its prestigious surrounds, design has been central to the hotel's construction.  The dazzling white and gold building merges contemporary sophistication with Russian tradition, its eye catching domed centerpiece offering a nod to the country's architectural heritage.  An ideal spot for tourists wishing to soak up Russian culture, Krasnodar's principle attractions of St Catherine's Cathedral, the Musical Theatre Premiera and Krasnodar Circus all nearby.  Ease of access is assured with Krasnodar International Airport approximately 20 kilometers away.

Simon Vincent, president, EMEA, Hilton Worldwide said, "With major events on the horizon such as the 2014 Winter Olympics and 2018 FIFA World Cup, Russia's profile as a visitor destination is increasing.  Supporting this burgeoning demand for business and leisure travel, by the end of the year we expect to double the number of hotels that we operate to eight in locations across the country.  I am delighted that we have opened our fourth Russian hotel in Krasnodar, extending our award winning Hilton Garden Inn brand to travelers in the region."

Guests can enjoy hearty meals and cooked to order breakfasts at The Restaurant as well as relaxed drinks at its stylish bar which opens out onto an air conditioned private terrace open year-round.  For those travelling for business the hotel boasts three fully equipped meeting rooms with a combined capacity of 100, whilst features such as free Wi-Fi and 24hr access to the gym, business centre and Pavilion pantry market reflect a service culture tailored towards the convenience of the busy modern traveler.

Mark Nogal, regional head, Hilton Garden Inn, said, "With its stylish design, city centre location and business friendly features such as free Wi-Fi, Hilton Garden Inn Krasnodar will set a new standard for bundled accommodation within the city.  We're proud to be the first international hotel brand to establish itself in the city and look forward to welcoming guests."

All guest rooms at Hilton Garden Inn Krasnodar feature an in-room refrigerator and HDTV. Signature brand features such as the ergonomic chair designed by Herman Miller and Sweet Dreams by Serta® bed are installed to provide visitors with guaranteed comfort throughout their stay. All of this is wrapped around the Hilton Garden Inn Promise, the unconditional satisfaction guarantee or a commitment to take care of each guest regardless of their reason for travel.
