Accor has unveiled the first property under its business-oriented Pullman brand in Georgia.
The Pullman Tbilisi Axis Towers is housed within the capital’s tallest building on Ilia Chavchavadze Avenue in the city’s Vake district, around 20 minutes from Tbilisi International airport.
Features include 220 rooms and suites occupying floors 19 to 35 of the tower, as well as all day dining Dumas restaurant serving French and Mediterranean cuisine, lobby venue The Junction at Pullman, and the 37th floor Weather Report sky bar.
Other facilities include a 25-metre heated pool with retractable glass roof, a fitness centre, two saunas, a steam room, boxing ring, and 2,000 sqm of meeting and events space.
It’s been 15 years since Accor revived its Pullman brand (which had been merged into the Sofitel brand back in 1993).
At the time the group set a target of 300 Pullman properties worldwide by 2015 – there are currently around 140 hotels in operation, with recent openings including the Pullman Lima Miraflores.
Commenting on the news Alexis Delaroff, COO of Accor New East Europe, said:
“Pullman Tbilisi Axis Towers is one of our most ambitious and long awaited projects in Georgia, which in many ways represents Accor’s willingness to actively support the development of tourism and further strengthen its positioning in the country.
“Tbilisi has great potential and we are confident that the development of the hotel industry in various segments will contribute to the constant growth in the number of leisure and business travellers.
“I have no doubt that the first Pullman, located in such an iconic building, will become one of the favourite hotels for visitors and residents of the city, thanks to its outstanding design and impeccable service, while ‘Dumas’ restaurant and Sky Bar ‘Weather Report’ offering panoramic views of the city will soon be included in the lists of must-see places in Tbilisi.”
