Renaissance Hotels, a hotel brand known for inspiring travellers to ‘Live Life to Discover’, has announced the opening of the Renaissance Minsk Hotel, representing the first Marriott International hotel to open in Belarus. Centrally located in Minsk’s thriving business district, the modern new hotel is a short walking distance to the city’s cultural treasures including the Bolshoi Opera and Ballet Theatre. The hotel is operated by an affiliate of U.S. based Interstate Hotels & Resorts.
The 267 comfortably appointed guestrooms, many with balconies overlooking the city, are elegantly designed with wood floors and panelling, and a neutral colour palette of cream and beige. Modern lighting and leather furniture complete a contemporary and sophisticated look. The spacious Penthouse Suite offers two bedrooms, a living room and a private terrace whilst the luxurious Presidential Suite features a kitchen, a private dining area and a Jacuzzi.
Welcoming public areas offer comfortable seating, complimentary Wi-Fi and areas to work and socialise alongside two dining options: the “Arborea” restaurant and the Lobby Bar, which serve a variety of European, Belarusian and signature dishes. Additional facilities include a state-of-the art fitness centre with indoor pool, and a spa featuring Russian and Finnish saunas. Meetings and special events may be hosted in any of the ten spacious meeting rooms which offer 940 square metres of space, or the hotel’s expansive Grand Ballroom, which is the largest in the city.
Renaissance Hotels’ onsite Navigators are on hand to help guests discover the best of Minsk including bars, restaurants and historical sites such as Troitsky Suburb, an old town rebuilt in 19th century style on the Svisloch River.
