Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group announced the Park Inn Apartment Hotel Istanbul Esenyurt which will be Rezidor's largest hotel in Turkey with its 484 rooms. The hotel group increases its portfolio in the country to 22 hotels with almost 4,000 rooms in operation or under development.
The new apartment hotel will welcome the first guests in late 2017/early 2018. The Park Inn Apartment Hotel Istanbul Esenyurt will be located in the Esenyurt district – an upcomig area reporting a construction boom of residential and retail complexes. It is also home to the Esenyurt University, and enjoys easy access to Ataturk Airport (15km) and the city center (30km). The hotel will be part of "Wish Istanbul", a mixed-use 135,000m2 real estate development including two towers with 40+ floors and excellent visibility.
The apartment hotel tower will include, besides 484 rooms and apartments, an all-day-dining restaurant, a lobby lounge, a pool bar & grill, a conference centre of 2,190sqm, a large spa (1,335sqm), an outdoor pool and garden, and 320 parking bays.
"Turkey is a focus country for us. We carefully monitor the current turbulence, but believe in its long-term potential. The addition of a true Park Inn flagship will further strengthen our position in the market and facilitate the future development of Park Inn", said Wolfgang M. Neumann, President & CEO of Rezidor.
"The hotel will be our first serviced apartments product in Turkey – an exciting market segment with growing demand. It will not only allow us to use operational and commercial synergies with our existing hotels in Istanbul, but also to unlock additional value for our guests and owners", added Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer of Rezidor. The group now operates 8 hotels in Istanbul and has 4 further properties under development. Radisson Blu is the largest upper-upscale brand in town and complemented by the fresh and dynamic mid-market brand Park Inn.
