Accor has been selected as the hospitality group to operate a new designer hotel in Moscow under the SO/ Hotels & Resorts luxury lifestyle brand, SO/ Moscow.
The property, part of the ‘Poklonnaya 9’ development, is earmarked to open in Q2 2023, joining a country-mate Russian SO/ hotel in the city of St. Petersburg.
The 32-storey premium-class apartment complex will be located two minutes from Kutuzovsky Prospect and the Triumphal Arch of Moscow. The building, which combines features of neoclassicism and art deco, is organically integrated into the historical buildings of one of the most elite districts of Moscow – Dorogomilovo.
The hotel’s public spaces and guest rooms will be designed by the Rockwell Group, a leading architecture and design firm based in New York. Striving to provide a unique design and standout atmosphere, Rockwell Group has chosen to explore Russian fairytales as a key creative driver for the project, which will be brought to life through bright colours, unique materials and fabrics, as well as interior items.
SO/ Moscow’s offerings will include a restaurant, bars, lounge areas and coworking spaces. Other highlights include recreational and wellness facilities such as a fitness centre with panoramic pool, yoga, functional training rooms and a spa. Apart from hotel guests, hotel services will also be available for residents of the Poklonnaya 9 apartments, making the building truly a leading lifestyle hub in Moscow.
“I am very pleased that our luxurious and fashionable SO/ brand is coming to Moscow and especially in such an iconic place as Kutuzovsky Prospect and Poklonnaya Gora. This luxury brand, which is known for its avant-garde design, high fashion influences and trend-setting events, will add a French-infused charm and high-class ambience to the Moscow location. It will undoubtedly become a place of attraction for guests and locals alike,” said Alexis Delaroff, COO, Accor Russia, Georgia, Ukraine and CIS.
