best-western-russia-vegaMOSCOW — Best Western International has opened the Best Western Vega Hotel & Convention Centre, its first and largest hotel in Moscow.

“As Russia continues to attract more business and leisure travellers, we felt it was a perfect  time to join Best Western’s global family of hotels and take on its internationally recognized name and reputation,” said Valery Maximov, general manager of the Best Western Vega Hotel & Convention Centre.

The Vega hotel was originally built in anticipation of the 1980 Olympics and remodelled in 2007. The property features 970 guestrooms, three onsite restaurants, a coffee shop, a lobby bar, a conference centre, 15 meeting spaces and a fitness facility with Turkish baths and a Finnish sauna.  

“We’ve found there is a need in Russia and surrounding regions for hotels that offer leisure and business travellers international standards in the midscale and upper midscale markets,” said Suzi Yoder, Best Western’s vice-president of International Operations.

In the last few years, Best Western has opened two other properties in Eastern Europe — in Chisinau, Moldova and Sevastopol, Ukraine.
