Interstate Hotels & Resorts in Arlington opens seven new hotels
Interstate Hotels & Resorts, a global hotel management company based in Arlington, announced Thursday the opening of seven hotels, expanding its portfolio by nearly 2,000 rooms.
The new properties include four hotels in the Winter Olympics city of Sochi, Russia; the combined 261-unit Residence Inn and 378-room Courtyard New York Manhattan/Central Park, the tallest hotel in North America; and the 228-room StreamsongResort, a Florida golf resort and conference center with two golf courses.
“It is exciting to see Interstate’s continued growth, expanding across the globe in dynamic destinations like Russia, New York and Florida,” Jim Abrahamson, Interstate’s CEO, said in a statement. “… Broadening our geographic portfolio diversity is a strategic venture possible through our proven performance, producing strong results for owners worldwide.”
In Russia, the largest of the four new hotels was Marriott International’s first hotel in Gorky Gorod. Managed by Interstate, it opened just weeks before thousands of international and visitors descended upon the city to attend the Winter Olympics in Soshi.
The five-star, seven-story Sochi Marriott Krasnaya Polyana Hotel has 428 rooms and suites and is within walking distance of the area’s ski slopes.
