Morgans to take Delano brand to Moscow

Russia: Morgans Hotel Group has announced plans to open the Delano Moscow, its third international Delano-branded property.

Delano Moscow will be situated in Moscow’s International Business Centre, also referred to as Moscow City. It is described as “Russia’s first ever mixed-use space, combining high-end residences, offices and retail in one impressive complex”

The 160-room property will be part of Capital Group’s OKO project within Moscow City, and will feature “extensive fine dining and nightlife outlets and top-of-the-line hotel facilities and guest amenities”.

Michael Gross, CEO of Morgans Hotel Group, said: “With the introduction of each new Delano property, we bring to life the ethos we created in South Beach, while uniquely blending our vision with the markets we enter. Moscow is an exciting city and we could not have found a better partner to align with than Capital Group to further extend the Delano brand.”

Delano Moscow marks the start of a business partnership between Russian developer Capital Group and Morgans Hotel Group.

Vladislav Doronin, chairman of Capital Group, said: “Moscow City has become a financial centre of international standard. It comprises mixed-use skyscraper complexes totaling 4.5 million square metros that have become headquarters for major international companies. A modern transport infrastructure has been developed within the business district, which includes two operating metro stations and a high-speed railway currently under construction that would connect Moscow City with international airports. Thus, it is obvious that Moscow City needs high-quality hotel service, and Delano Moscow would become the first hotel to open here. I have no doubt it would become the best project to meet the needs of the tenants and the guests of the business centre.”

The property will follow the opening of Delano Marrakech in September 2012, and Delano Cesme in 2015.
