Radisson Hotel Group is adding a new location to the Park Inn by Radisson portfolio with the signing of Park Inn by Radisson Tashkent City Hotel & Apartments.
The newly built hotel and apartment project is due to open in 2021 in the capital of Uzbekistan.
Elie Younes, chief development officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “We are excited to bring the Park Inn by Radisson brand to Uzbekistan, a country where tourism is growing rapidly.
“In 2018, Uzbekistan welcomed five million tourists - with Tashkent being a popular choice among travellers as the country’s most cosmopolitan city.
“We are delighted to be bringing a new brand to such a vibrant region and offering this market something fresh and exciting.”
The partner of this project is Lotus Gas Invest, the owner of the brand Real House, one of the leading construction companies in Tashkent.
The new-build project, due to open in 2021, will consist of 300 rooms - including 50 serviced apartments, a conference hall, five meeting rooms, a gym, and an all-day dining restaurant.
Park Inn by Radisson is an upper midscale hotel brand that delivers stress-free experiences, good food and upbeat environments.
This will be 24th Park Inn by Radisson Hotel across the Russia and the CIS region, bringing the portfolio to 6,194 rooms - keeping the brand as the largest midscale brand in the region.
Tashkent is the most visited city in Uzbekistan followed by the ancient cities of Samarkand and Bukhara.
It is the cultural and political centre of the country, rich in museums and Soviet-era monuments.
