Marriott Hotels will open a new property in early 2016 in Minsk, Belarus. The hotel will be the first 5-star internationally rated hotel in Belarus. Minsk Marriott Hotel will debut in the modern capital with its 217 well-appointed suites and guest rooms that boast panoramic riverside views and balconies.
The property will feature a total of 940 m2 of meeting space for both corporate and social events. Facilities will include eight flexible conference rooms and ballroom space that can accommodate up to 400 people, along with a multifunctional space for collaboration, workshops and private meetings for those looking for a bespoke meeting experience. In addition, Marriott’s Meetings Imagined program provides new opportunities and inspiration for event coordinators and meeting planners along with an online service that keeps guests in touch with guest relation managers 24/7.
The services of Minsk Marriott Hotel are supplemented by the high-end facilities of the multifunctional sports and entertainment complex, Falcon Club, which comprises a state-of-the-art sports arena for 2,100–4,500 spectators, modern gym, wellness centre with spa services, tennis and squash academy and cinemas.
This impressive project, a cooperation between Qatar and Belarus, started in June 2012 and has now entered its final stage of construction. The unique falcon-shaped design was inspired by the logo of the owning company; the falcon is the national bird of Qatar and a symbol of force and courage throughout the Middle East, where falconry is a traditional sport and part of the cultural heritage.
