On August 15, 2022, the largest five-star business hotel of the Moscow capital, Plaza Garden Moscow WTC (ex. Crowne Plaza Moscow WTC) and the Satelinn Moscow Khovrino hotel (ex. Holiday Inn Express Moscow - Khovrino) located in a green park area in the north of Moscow, changed their logos, launched new websites, updated social networks and are ready to continue to delight guests with true hospitality and high standards of service.

A month ago, WTC Moscow hotels changed their names. This decision was taken by the Board of Directors of World Trade Center in connection with the exit of the IHG Hotels & Resorts (IHG) company from the Russian market. IHG owns an international hotel chain, which includes the Holiday Inn Express and Crowne Plaza hotel brands, in the formats of which the WTC hotels have been operated.

“For us, this is not just a change of name. This is a rethinking of business, in general, while maintaining the international level of service and traditional Russian hospitality. We can say that we are starting from a clean slate and offer our clients all the best - many years of successful experience in operating business, world service standards and the best standards of hospitality, a full line of hotel products, which we will continue to supplement and develop. We also released a new website and updated our social media. In the near future we plan to launch our own loyalty program. Now active work is underway in this area,” - Elena Borisova, general manager of the Plaza Garden Moscow WTC hotel noted.

 Belonging to the WTC brand has always allowed WTC hotels operated under the Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn Express franchises to build internal operational processes on their own and solve most systemic issues at the local level. This unique experience will help keep Plaza Garden Moscow WTC and Satelinn Moscow Khovrino clear and balanced operational processes. The activity under the new brand opens up new opportunities for each of the hotels and allows them to be even more flexible in working with guests, inspires them to develop new offers in a more individual and creative way.

The location on the territory of the WTC complex largely influenced the choice of the name Plaza Garden Moscow WTC, loosely translated as “garden square”. The hotel is surrounded by a historical garden and park landscape, including unique ponds, canals and alleys of several parks, which at any time of the year serve as a great place for a walk and adorn the views from the panoramic windows of the hotel. The territory of the WTC complex harmoniously complements the landscape with fountains, flower beds and green spaces. In addition, inside the complex there are various green oases, summer verandas and open cozy courtyards. The interiors of the two buildings of the hotel have already implemented "living" green walls, trees and flowers, as well as seasonal flower arrangements. All this creates a unique combination of a business atmosphere with a blooming garden, which is reflected not only in the name of the hotel, but also in the logo, the choice of colors and fonts for the design of the new website, and also formed the basis of the new concept of the hotel as a whole.

An additional pleasant bonus for guests of WTC hotels is the opportunity to book rooms directly through the Plaza Garden Moscow WTC and Satelinn Moscow Khovrino websites, as well as through the WTC Moscow mobile app, available for download in the AppStore and NashStore.

Excellent transport accessibility and the ability to build convenient logistics when planning business meetings, the availability of its own free parking for hotel guests are important criteria when choosing Satelinn Moscow Khovrino. The new name is a combination of the English word “satellite” and the abbreviation Inn, denoting a small hotel. Satelinn Moscow Khovrino is a companion of a business traveler, no matter where and for what purposes he comes to Moscow.

Satelinn Moscow Khovrino rooms are equipped with everything you need. This allows guests to get the most out of their stay at the hotel at the best cost and time. Convenient location in a green park area with well-developed infrastructure for sports and recreation, not far from Sheremetyevo Airport, is a pleasant bonus, creating additional comfort for guests for productive work and relaxation after a busy day. Professional and friendly staff helps to quickly resolve all emerging issues, which is especially important when visiting the metropolitan big city.

“We value every guest and do everything to create the most comfortable conditions for staying in our hotel. Hotel guests can, as before, receive at Satelinn Moscow Khovrino a high-level hotel product, exemplary service, true hospitality and loyalty,” - Oksana Penkova, general manager of Satelinn Moscow Khovrino hotel said.

Plaza Garden Moscow WTC - the largest five-star business hotel in Moscow, with a capacity of 727 functional and modern rooms, including 149 rooms with Club privileges. The entire rich infrastructure of the WTC with free parking for hotel guests, numerous restaurants, bars, shops and vast opportunities for holding events of any format – are at your service.

Satelinn Moscow Khovrino is a business hotel located in a park area in the north of Moscow, offering 171 comfortable rooms, as well as a meeting hall. High transport accessibility - proximity to Sheremetyevo Airport, the North River Terminal and Khovrino transport hub - makes the hotel convenient for guests while the large territory, the adjacent forest park and Levoberezhny Park have determined its status as a favorite vacation spot.
