DoubleTree by Hilton is opening the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Minsk within the Galleria Minsk, a premier shopping and entertainment complex located in the heart of the city.
This new upper upscale, contemporary hotel features 193 guest rooms and suites and marks the brand’s debut in Belarus.
“We are delighted to open DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Minsk.
“Minsk is a cosmopolitan, modern city where visitors can enjoy a range of activities - including exploring the architecture in the city’s Old Town, watching a performance at one of the numerous theatres or relaxing in the botanic garden,” said Dianna Vaughan, senior vice president and global head, DoubleTree by Hilton.
“We look forward to welcoming travellers to Belarus with the brand’s unique, caring style of hospitality, beginning with a warm DoubleTree Cookie greeting at check-in.”
The hotel’s Ballroom Grand Galleria can accommodate up to 300 people.
There are also three meeting rooms, a modern business centre and a 24-hour, fully-equipped gym.
“With its one-of-a-kind views of the city, prime location in the Galleria Minsk and exciting dining options, we are confident DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Minsk will become the preferred choice for travellers to Belarus,” said Svetlana Burova, general manager, DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Minsk.
Minsk has transformed from a destination reliant on heavy industry to a bustling city, offering visitors a variety of cultural attractions, including the National Academic Grand Opera and Ballet Theatre, Belarusian National History and Culture Museum, as well as several cathedrals and churches.
The city is fast establishing itself as a centre for sports events too, by hosting the Ice Hockey World Championships in 2014 and the upcoming 2019 European Games.
The nearby Old Town is home to iconic, modern buildings such as the ‘Diamond’ National Library.
