Marriott International's Luxury Collection has expanded into Armenia with the opening of The Alexander, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Yerevan.
As the country’s first internationally branded luxury hotel, The Alexander joins a portfolio of more than 100 Luxury Collection hotels around the world.
“Armenia is a destination with a deeply rooted history and rich culture, which has until now remained a mostly unchartered destination for our global travelers” said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader, The Luxury Collection. “The Alexander will allow our guests to connect with the fascinating capital city of Yerevan, marked by grand Soviet-era architecture and historic landmarks such as the Matenadaran library, and truly engage in the authentic traditions of Armenia.”
The Alexander has 114 guestrooms and suites, many of which include private balconies. The Presidential Suite takes up an entire floor and spans more than 1,700 square feet. Public spaces include the Alexander Spa, a rooftop restaurant with an adjacent bar, a fitness center, a beauty salon and the city's first indoor pool. The property also has five meeting rooms, all of which can be combined to accommodate events of up to 160 guests.
