Marriott adds four Azerbaijan hotels to Autograph
Two hotels in mountain resort joining this month, with two more in capital Baku in June
Marriott International is adding four properties in Azerbaijan to its Autograph Colelction of independent hotels, including two this month.
Two hotels from the Shahdag Mountain Resort - Pik Palace Shahdag and Park Chalet Shahdag – are the first to join the collection, which recently added its first Middle East property.
The next two hotels, which will join in June, are Boulevard Hotel Baku and Intourist Hotel Baku, both in the nation’s capital, Baku.
“We are thrilled to be entering a destination as exciting as Azerbaijan; a destination that has seen outstanding developments to its tourism infrastructure in recent years,” said John Licence, brand leader for Autograph Collection in Europe.
“Autograph Collection is known for creating authentic experiences for travellers that are nothing less than unique, nothing short of exceptional – which is why Azerbaijan and the four properties are the perfect fit for the brand.”
Marriott recently announced the Habtoor Grand Beach Resort & Spa in Dubai will become the first hotel in the Middle East to join the collection, early next year.
Another hotel currently under development in a major theme park project in Dubai will later join the collection in 2016.
Out of the four new hotels in Azerbaijan, Boulevard Hotel Baku is the largest, with a total of 818 rooms.
Pik Palace Shahdag and Park Chalet Shahdag have 167 and 164 rooms repectively, while Intourist Hotel Baku is a 150-key property.
