Marriott to Debut in Ukraine

Good news for travelers to Eastern Europe: Marriott International will open its first hotel in Ukraine, the 173-room Renaissance Kiev Hotel, under a management agreement with Subsidiary Enterprise Grand Plaza. The hotel is expected to open in mid-2013 following an extension and renovation of the existing historic building formerly known as the Leipzig Hotel. Renaissance Hotels currently operates 35 hotels throughout Europe.

Kiev, Ukraine’s capital city, serves as the economic, political, and cultural center of the country. The Renaissance Kiev Hotel will be located on the corner of Volodymyrska and Prorizna Streets, facing Golden Gate Park. The hotel is a short walk from the city’s key attractions including the shopping district, government buildings and Saint Sophia Square and very close to the city’s Opera House.
