Voronezh Russia

The city of Voronezh, situated 300 miles south of Moscow, will host a Marriott Hotel in 2015. 

With a population of nearly one million it has limited air links westward.  Its major claim to aeronautical fame being the home of the Russian supersonic airliner known as Concordski, Tu-144.  One still remains in storage.

Voronezh is a regional business hub where aviation, logistics and manufacturing are the mainstay industries.  Tourism to the city is increasing given the city’s relative proximity to Moscow on the main transport route, coupled with an attractive city centre, lovely parks and public squares, and a multitude of theatres, cinemas, monuments and churches.

The 220-room Voronezh Marriott Hotel is a management operation rather than a franchise.  The hotel will occupy a prime commercial location as part of a new development accommodating shops, office space and residential apartments called   Prospekt Revolyutsii.

Marriot currently operates 14 hotels across Russia. www.marriott.com
