13 Sep 2008 by Mark Caswell

IHG will open its
first hotel in Ukraine this December, when it unveils the Intercontinental

The 286-room
hotel is located on the city’s St
Michael’s Square, and will include a rooftop bar, spa, health club, three
restaurants, a casino and a conference centre.

Rooms feature
flatscreen TVs, separate bath and shower and complimentary wifi internet
access, while the 212 sqm Royal Suite overlooks St Michael’s and St Sophia’s
cathedrals, and includes a separate kitchen and dining room.

Dining options
include Comme Il Faut for a formal French and European dining experience, and
Oliviera for Italian and Mediterranean fare. The property will feature two
grand ballrooms, capable of accommodating up to 800 delegates.

The hotel is due
to open in late December, although the spa, health club and swimming pool will
not be completed until April 2009.

IHG has a total
of three hotels under development in the Ukranian capital (which will host the final
of the European Football Championships in 2012). The other two are the Holiday
Inn Kiev, due to open at the end of 2009, and the Crowne Plaza Kiev, slated for
a 2012 launch.
