Hyatt to Expand in Russia

Hyatt Hotels & Resorts plans to open four hotels in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States over the next three years. Included in plans are a Park Hyatt, a Grand Hyatt and two Hyatt Regency properties, to accommodate the increasing number of luxury travelers to Russia. "Russia is an emerging market economy, which is set to offer substantial growth and great future potential," said Thierry Bertin, Hyatt's director of marketing in the area. Hyatt already has five hotels in the region, with the future openings in Moscow, Yekaterinburg, Tbilisi and Dushanbe. Visit www.hyatt.com. (DE)
