13 May 2011 (10:08)

Head of Yekaterinburg City Council Alexander Yakob held a meeting of the city strategic development committee in order to look into an updated version of a strategic project on Yekaterinburg hotels.

The project began in 2005, and over fifty new hotels with a total of over 3,000 rooms have been built since then, with fifteen hotels reconstructed as well.

At the moment, there are ninety-five hotels in Yekaterinburg ready to host 7,732 people altogether. Five foreign hoteliers run their business here, namely, Hyatt, Park Inn, Ramada, Angelo, and Novotel.

Twenty-five more hotels will have been put up in the city by 2020 and eleven existing hotels will have been remodeled. The city expects to attract as many as eleven foreign hotel chains, including Radisson, Kempinski, and Sheraton, the city council’s press officer reports.
