Sheraton Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin

New Sheraton Brings More Event Space to Russia?


Sheraton Hotels & Resorts has made its debut in one of Russia’s largest cities with the opening of the Sheraton Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin.

The new property has more than 400 square meters of versatile event space, including six meeting rooms equipped with the latest audio-visual hardware. There is also a 24-hour business centre and on-site parking facilities.

Situated on the confluence of the River Oka with the River Volga, Nizhny Novgorod is recognized as an important economic, educational and cultural center in the vast Volga-Vyatka region, with significant tourism potential, Sheraton said. 

A short walk from the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin and the fashion boutiques on Bolshaya Pokrovskaya Street, Sheraton Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin is located in the historic quarter close to an abundance of cultural and heritage attractions. The hotel offers 176 guestrooms and suites with amenities including the signature Sweet Sleeper Bed. For those staying in suites, the Sheraton Club Lounge is an exclusive space to enjoy complimentary breakfast, drinks and snacks throughout the day. A Sheraton Fitness Centre and massage suite offer guests the chance to recharge or relax.

The interiors of the hotel’s public spaces have been designed by Studio Jacques Garcia in warm hues to create a modern and inviting gathering place for travelers and the local community. A signature restaurant Smorodinn serves fresh and seasonal cuisine with a local flavor, while the lobby bar aims to offer a place to connect over cocktails. Guests also have the option of in-room dining.

The property is a 30-minute drive from Nizhniy Novgorod Airport (GOJ). Alternatively, the city has rail service to Moscow, St Petersburg and many other major Russian cities.

Marriott International currently operates 25 hotels throughout Russia across 10 brands. By the end of 2018, the company expects to boost its presence with eight more hotels slated to open in Krasnodar, Moscow, Rostov-On-Don, Saransk, Sochi and Voronezh.

New York Hilton Midtown Debuts New Suites

Planners looking to book a small event in New York City with a Central Park view have a new option. 

The 1,907-room New York Hilton Midtown has completed three new types of premium suites overlooking Central Park. Set on the hotel’s 40th and 41st floors, the five suites were designed by New York City-based architecture and interior design firm Stonehill Taylor, drawing inspiration from nearby landmarks such as the Prometheus sculpture by Paul Manship at Rockefeller Center and the Seagram Building by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Each room has a custom curated art collection by consulting company Museum Edition, as well as custom made carpets, furniture, framing, lighting and more. With private vestibules, foyers and kitchens connected to corridors for staff to seamlessly come and go, each suite was designed to entertain. The connected adjacent rooms allow for a greater number of guests to share accommodations. 

As the largest of the collection, the 3,700-square-foot Presidential Suite is the size of approximately ten guest rooms and intended to accommodate large parties. Designed to look like a home, the open layout is complimented by a neutral palette, modern furniture and luxe fabrics. The sophisticated aesthetic is seen throughout the suite, consisting of a gallery and foyer, living and lounge area, media room, game room with a custom made billiard table, dining room, bar and kitchen area, master bedroom and bath clad in travertine stone. The media room stands as a true home theater, encompassed by Art Deco-inspired folding walls for maximum flexibility.

The Corner Suite, of which there are three iterations varying between 1,820 square feet and 2,180 square feet, is a romantic space that nods to Martha Graham’s fluid movements. Large groups of furniture aim for a relaxed, residential feel and elevated entertainment opportunities. The six-bay suite includes a foyer, living room, dining room, bar and master bedroom with a master bath, including a black claw-foot tub, Carrara marble walls and porcelain tiles. 

The Linear Suite, at 1,600 square feet, is an edgy, tech-forward space inspired by the Museum of Modern Art and Whitney Museum of American Art. Geometric art is coupled with theatrical furniture in the living area. The eight-bay suite consists of a foyer, living room, media room, dining and bar, and master bedroom with master bath featuring hexagon porcelain tiles. 

A short walk from Times Square, Broadway theaters and the Fifth Avenue shopping district, New York Hilton Midtown accommodates international and domestic travelers, large conferences and conventions, smaller meetings and banquets.
