Hyatt set for Moscow opening

19 Aug 2008 by Mark Caswell

Moscow will gain
its second Hyatt property this December, when the boutique Grand Hyatt
Residences and Spa opens on the Krasnopresnenskaya Embankment.

The hotel will be
housed in the Tower West of the Federation Complex, part of the $12bn Moscow-City project. The development is located 4km
north-west of the Kremlin, and will feature 18 suites ranging from 90 to
245sqm, as well as seven residential spa guestrooms on 60th floor.

Suite facilities
will include individual kitchens, a wine cave, humidor, espresso machine, “exquisite
china and cutlery”, and wifi internet access. There will also be a restaurant
and lounge on the 62nd floor, and a spa and fitness centre on the 60th and 61st
floors, with a 20-metre swimming pool, traditional Russian bath, exercise
studio, yoga room and juice bar.

The hotel will be
the highest in Russia at 243 metres, but will be dwarfed by the forthcoming Tower
East, a 94-floor, 360-metre high building attached to Tower West by glass

When completed in
2010, Tower East will house the 368-room Grand Hyatt Moscow complete with a
91st floor lobby. The building is on course to become the largest in Europe,
although it will itself be outdone by the 506-metre spire also being built within
the complex.
