HYATT HOTELS AND RESORTS has opened a second property in Russia and increased its presence in the Middle East with a 249-room hotel in Qatar.
The 296-room Hyatt Regency Ekaterinburg, located in the capital of the Urals Federal District, has a business centre and nearly 27,000m2 of function space. The group already operates the Ararat Park Hyatt in Moscow, and plans to open a third Russian property, the Grand Hyatt Moscow, late next year.
The beachfront Grand Hyatt Doha, part of the new West Bay Lagoon district and 19km from the Qatari capital's international airport, has its own conference centre, with eight meetings rooms and three boardrooms, plus a 400-metre private beach. Hyatt already has three hotels in Dubai and another in Oman, the Grand Hyatt Muscat (pictured).
