The Ritz-Carlton Moscow is changing its name following Marriott's exit from Russian market
The Ritz-Carlton Moscow is changing its name after its parent company, U.S. hospitality group Marriott International, pulled out of the Russian market over the invasion of Ukraine, the five-star hotel announced earlier this week.
The luxury hotel, located steps away from Red Square on Tverskaya Ulitsa, will now be known as The Carlton Moscow, it said in a statement carried by the state-run TASS news agency.
The renamed hotel also announced a new website address, www.carltonmoscow.com, as well as a new logo.
Marriott International, which had owned some 30 hotels in Russia, closed its corporate office in Moscow and suspended further investment into Russia in March, joining a wave of multinational companies exiting the Russian market over the Kremlin's Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine.
