Holiday Inn Minsk will also feature the brand’s signature Open Lobby. The Holiday Inn Open Lobby takes a unique approach to the in-hotel experience for guests, which has transformed the traditional hotel lobby format by combining the front desk, lobby, restaurant, bar, lounge area and business centre into one open, cohesive space, while refreshing the design to give it a more contemporary feel.
The Open Lobby has been established by understanding how people use space at home in order to give guests the most flexibility, whether they’re looking to eat, relax, work, or have fun in one integrated space.
The 205-room hotel will also feature nine suites, a gym, parking for 35 vehicles, four meeting rooms and breakout rooms, and a restaurant and lounge area. The hotel’s design creates an atmosphere that is warm and welcoming for guests.
Occupying a prime city centre spot in Belarus’s capital, the hotel is located near a number of government offices and company headquarters, making it easily accessible for both business and leisure travellers frequenting the city.
Aron Libinson, Associate Vice President for Development, Russia, CIS and Georgia commented: “The Holiday Inn brand has celebrated many firsts through the years. From the first hotel to let Kids Stay and Eat Free®, to the $1 billion US global refresh of our hotels; so we’re delighted to be announcing the first Holiday Inn hotel in Belarus. It’s the most recognised hotel brand in the world and continues to appeal to both owners and guests wanting a quality yet comfortable internationally branded hotel. We’re looking forward to working with Hospitality Group LLC on this exciting new development.”
