Morgans Hotel Group announces plans to extend their signature luxury brand into Russia with the opening of Delano Moscow, the third international Delano-branded property, following the opening of Delano Marrakech slated for September 2012, and Delano Cesme scheduled to open in 2015.
With Delano Moscow, Morgans Hotel Group is positioned to deliver the unique Delano experience, defined by impeccable style and unparalleled standards of service, to the thriving international gateway city in 2015.
This announcement is the latest progression in the New York-based hospitality management company’s extensive international growth plan for its Delano luxury brand, focused on entering key markets around the world. Morgans Hotel Group’s Delano first opened its doors in 1995 in Miami’s trendy South Beach and quickly became a must-visit destination, pioneering a new industry standard as a next generation chic urban resort.
Delano Moscow will be situated in the heart of Moscow’s new state-of-the-art International Business Center, also referred to as Moscow-City, Russia’s first ever mixed-use space, combining high-end residences, offices and retail in one impressive complex. The Moscow Government first conceived of the Moscow City project in 1992, and an estimated 500,000 – 600,000 people will be visiting, living or working in the awe-inspiring new luxury development at any given time.
Morgans Hotel Group’s newest Delano will be part of Capital Group’s OKO project within Moscow City, a new development that will offer premium spaces designed for luxury living, business and entertainment. An example of innovative urbanism presented by American architectural bureau SOM (Skidmore, Owings and Merrill), OKO will also feature an 85-story skyscraper and a 49-story office tower that soar from a 7-story single transparent crystalline structure at the base of the complex.
Plans for Delano Moscow include 160 beautifully appointed guest rooms, extensive fine dining and nightlife outlets and top-of-the-line hotel facilities and guest amenities. The world-class boutique resort will provide an upscale haven of luxury within the vibrant Moscow-City development, appealing to the sensibilities of tastemakers around the world. Delano has become synonymous with style and sophistication and the new Moscow property will bring these ideals to a captivating new urban center.
“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
