MOSCOW, November 21, 2007 -- Moscow's first five-star, all-suite hotel opened on September 25, 2007.  MaMaison Pokrovka Suite Hotel, a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, is the first Russian property in MaMaison Hotels & Apartments' collection (a brand of Orco Property Group).
"We offer guests some of the most spacious and functional accommodations in Moscow.  The hotel has a modern design and warm atmosphere.  The name of the hotel - MaMaison or My House - reflects our desire to offer guests the cozy feeling of a luxurious private home," says General Manager Fedor Filimonov.

Featuring 84 deluxe suites, the MaMaison Pokrovka Suite Hotel is located in the heart of Moscow on Pokrovka Street, between the Garden and Boulevard Rings, in the northern part of downtown Moscow.  Pokrovka used to connect the Kremlin to royal residences and mansions in the countryside.  The Pokrovka area now features upscale offices, chic cafes, restaurants and boutiques.  The Kremlin, Red Square and Bolshoi Theater are within a 20-minute walk from the hotel.  Nearest metro station is Chistye Prudy.  Hotel's address is Pokrovka str. 40, building 2.

The hotel has been designed by Jestico+Whiles,, the leading British architecture practice based in London and Prague.  Each suite features a different layout, view and décor.  The interior design reflects warmth and luxury, with spacious rooms, modern furniture, high quality wooden parquet floors, pastel colors and natural light.  Facilities include fully equipped kitchenette, cable/satellite tv, wireless phones, voicemail, PC/fax connections, safety deposit box, bathrobes and daily complimentary mineral water.  Some suites have DVD players.

Services include a concierge, 24-hour room service, valet, business center and underground parking.  A meeting room with natural daylight is suitable for small groups.

Renowned French artist and sculptor, Guillaume Piechaud,, has produced a one of a kind piece for the lobby of the hotel. This permanent sculpture is called "Pianophant."  Famous Czech photographer, ?těpán Hon,, will also contribute to the artistic finish of Pokrovka.  He will create a living photographic installation in the lobby of the hotel, evolving regularly to create new moods and an elegant ambience.

The restaurant "Numbers" has an Art Deco design by Anton Gorlanov, a well known designer from St. Petersburg.  The look reflects a cool mix of traditional Europe, with the hot, impulsive East.  Chic, classy and cosmopolitan, Numbers is an exquisite space, with a summer terrace and bar.  Chef Said Fadli is a culinary master, combining the best of Russian, French and Mediterranean cuisines.   In addition, the Bar "Tezon" (named for tequila brand Olmeca Tezon) is a lounge and cigar bar.

A luxurious new spa will open in September 2008.  It will feature private treatment rooms, fitness center, swimming pool, sauna, steam room and solarium.  A range of spa treatments are available, including thalassotherapy, or hydrotherapy procedures with sea or flower water.  Spa products are from the French company Algotherm.
