Marriott has signed a management contract with
Fortuna CJSC for its third moderately priced, 170-room Courtyard
by Marriott hotel in Russia, and second in Moscow.

open in 2010. It will be part of a mixed-use project that also
features four separate office towers and a two-level underground
parking garage in a campus style setting. Paveletskaya Train

Moscow. The area is one of the major international corporate
office hubs in Moscow and benefits from easy transit to the city’s

from which to choose.”
