Rezidor set to debut its largest hotel in Turkey
The Park Inn Apartment Hotel Istanbul Esenyurt in Turkey will offer 484 keys and will open late 2017/early 2018
Rezidor, part of the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, will increase its porfolio in Turkey to 22 hotels in operation or under development with the addition of the mid-market Park Inn Apartment Hotel Istanbul Esenyurt.
The property, with 484 keys, will be Rezidor's largest hotel in Turkey and will welcome guests in late 2017/early 2018.
"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 eight hotels in Istanbul and has four further properties under development.
The Park Inn Apartment Hotel Istanbul Esenyurt will be located in the Esenyurt district – home to the Esenyurt University, and 15km away from Ataturk Airport.
The hotel will be part of "Wish Istanbul", a mixed-use 135,000m2 real estate development including two towers with 40+ floors.
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 2,190m2, a large spa (1,335m2), an outdoor pool and garden, and 320 parking bays.
"We are proud and honored to work with Carlson Rezidor to develop "Wish Istanbul" as a new lifestyle destination in Istanbul", commented Vahit Safak, Chairman of Esen Saglik, the developers of the Wish Istanbul project.
