Marriott International has signed an agreement for a new hotel in Russia: the Voronezh Marriott Hotel, which is expected to open in 2015 as part of a mixed-use commercial, retail and residential development on Prospekt Revolyutsii in the city of Voronezh, in west Russia. The 220-room hotel will be managed by Ojsc Tsum-Voronezh. Marriott currently operates 14 hotels in Russia, but this will be its first property in Voronezh. Marriott also opened its ninth hotel in Turkey this week. The 212-room Renaissance Istanbul Bosphorus Hotel is on the European side of the city’s iconic Bosphorus River. The 20-storey hotel is the product of a franchise agreement with Polat Holding, signed in summer 2011, and it is the group’s fifth Renaissance hotel in the country.
