The Luxury Collection, part of Marriott International, Inc., has entered Armenia with the opening of The Alexander, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Yerevan. The hotel proudly brings The Luxury Collection’s rare, indigenous and captivating experiences to the capital of Armenia, one of the world’s oldest cities and a noted historical intersection between the East and West. As the country’s first internationally branded luxury hotel, The Alexander joins a portfolio of more than 100 Luxury Collection hotels around the world.
The brand’s new footprint in Yerevan also further cements Marriott International’s strategy to meet the growing demand for experiential luxury in emerging markets.
Set in an enviable location in the heart of Armenia’s capital, The Alexander is mere moments away from the city’s famous Republic Square, and is a brief stroll to numerous landmarks and cultural sights. The striking hotel reflects the city’s distinctive architecture, cleverly incorporating an 18th-century façade at its entrance to hint at the indigenous charms found within.
The Alexander offers 114 guest rooms and suites, many of which include private balconies. The magnificent Presidential Suite is celebrated as a standout highlight of the property, occupying an entire floor and spanning over 158 square metres. An equally alluring feature is the Alexander Spa by Anne Semonin, providing guests with an inviting haven of wellness experiences and personalised treatments designed to relax, heal and rejuvenate. The hotel also features a state-of-the-art fitness centre, a full-service beauty salon and the city’s first indoor pool, which boasts vistas of the snow-capped peak of Mount Ararat.
Located on the top floor of the hotel, The Alexander offers a special culinary experience with Armenian flair amid the distinctly glamorous decor at Italiano Ristorante. The adjacent bar shares jaw-dropping views with paired cocktails and an impressive wine selection that includes the finest local vintages.
Many of Yerevan’s unique attractions are just steps away from the hotel, including the Institute of Ancient Manuscripts, where visitors can discover its repository of ancient documents; the whimsical Seven Fountains; and the National Art Gallery, which is also considered to be the largest art museum in Armenia.
