Intourist goes upmarket
LOS ANGELES — Management representatives of Moscow’s Intourist hotel have held talks here with an international hotel chain (believed to be Marriot Corp.) on renovation. The 21-story Soviet-style Intourist, centrally located just off Red Square, has a reputation for seediness. Yet it has also long held the attention of the US chain. The Intourist has lost ground in recent years as other major hotels like the Metropol and National benefited from Western-style renovations. A Marriot representative confirmed the chain’s involvement in ‘a Moscow project’ and said the head of the company’s operations in Russia, Nick Ward, was participating in the L.A. talks.
