For travelers seeking charming cafes and an art scene, Tbilisi is making a name for itself as a modern-day city. Take one look at the growing and revitalized museums, transportation, and dining scene, and it’s easy to see why big-name hotel companies are taking heed. In fact, the world’s largest hotel franchising company recently debuted its flagship upper-upscale hotel: the Wyndham Grand Tbilisi.
If it’s all about location, Wyndham Grand Tbilisi, which opened in May, meets the mark. Centrally situated in the city’s Freedom Square, the cafes, restaurants, and some of the city’s best shopping districts engulf the hotel. The hotel mirrors the historic architecture of the neighborhood and nearby landmarks, including the National Library of Georgia and the Natural Museum. With the bespoke 22 meters “Chandelier of Peace,” elegance and class resound from the minute you step into the magnificent lobby. A stone’s throw from the lively Rustaveli Avenue, the Wyndham Grand Tbilisi boasts 158 stylish guest rooms, including 17 suites and two presidential suites. Tranquil rooms make for inviting spaces thanks in part to soothing neutrals and gleaming hardwood floors. The presidential and ambassador studies feature a master bedroom, living room, dining room, and scenic city views for travelers desiring extra space.
And sure, you can venture right outside the doors to quaint cafes, but why not opt for a range of local and international delicacies at one of the hotel’s two gourmet on-site restaurants? The Lobby Lounge serves European favorites around the clock, including free breakfast for hotel guests; while the Sky Lounge pleases palates with a mix of Georgian and European Specialties. If you’ve been out for the evening, stop into the lounge for a selection of craft cocktails or local Georgian wine.
Aside from a host of dining options, the hotel beckons travelers to relax and unwind in the full-service spa. But if business calls, you’re in good hands. Dry cleaning and a shoeshine service keep you looking sharp for those early morning meetings.
As the city of Tbilisi blossoms, so does the variety of accommodations and activities. The Wyndham Grand
Tbilisi is one of many examples of how the east meets west city is progressing.
