Moscow to Add 40 Hotels by 2013

There are plans to build almost 40 new hotels in Moscow by 2013, according to a city web site that cites the head of the hotel construction coordination department of the city's construction department, Vladimir Yermolayev, RIA-Novosti reported Monday.

Seventeen of those hotels, with more than 4,000 rooms, will open this year, Yermolayev continued.

More than 20 of them, with more than 6,000 rooms, are expected to open next year.

Further, more than 300 new hotels are expected to rise in the Russian capital by 2025, under the city's general plan.
