Wyndham continues Russian expansion with Voronezh hotel

Wyndham Hotel Group has announced the signing of the 210-room Ramada Plaza Voronezh City Centre in Russia. The hotel, due to open in October, marks the first Ramada Plaza property in the city, adding to Wyndham’s existing portfolio in the country, which includes three further properties in Ekaterinburg, Kazan and at Domodedovo Airport in Moscow.

“Our expansion within Russia through the signing of the newly built Ramada Plaza Voronezh City Centre comes just as the country is reportedly experiencing a rebound in airline passenger traffic,” said Dan Ruff, Wyndham Hotel Group’s president and managing director, Europe, Middle East, Eurasia and Africa. “Voronezh is an important historic city, providing a fitting location for our iconic, globally-renowned Ramada brand. Its thriving culture and major centre of higher education attracts a variety of travellers, which Ramada is well placed to serve.”

“The property’s excellent facilities, including the Sky Bar with stunning views over Voronezh city centre, are certain to impress its guests,” said Denis Mushtaev, the hotel’s GM.  “We’re very pleased to be creating a substantial 200 jobs in this growing city by bringing the Ramada brand to Voronezh.”

Ramada Plaza Voronezh City Centre will offer 210 rooms across 16 floors and present guests with a range of accommodation styles to suit varying needs and budgets. The extensive leisure facilities of the hotel’s wellness centre include a spa, relaxation area, gym and a steam room. Five fully equipped conference rooms provide business travellers with state-of-the-art amenities for meetings and events. Guests will have the option to dine and relax in the European design of the main restaurant or lobby bar, or experience the stunning views from the Sky Bar and BBQ terrace which towers 50m above Voronezh’s historic city centre.
