About the Pullman Hotel
Pullman Hotels & Resorts is the upscale international hotel brand of AccorHotels. It opened the first new hotel in the Baltic States on June 16, in the very heart of the capital of Latvia. The new 5-star Pullman Riga Old Town brings its unique creative architecture to the city's historical center. It features 155 rooms, an all-day dining restaurant, a bar, 8 state-of-the-art conference rooms as well as a Fit&Spa Lounge boasting a 19-meter long indoor swimming pool on the top floor of the building. Located in the center of the historic area of Rīga, Pullman Riga Old Town is set in a former Baron Munchausen's horse stable from 18th Century and features a horse breed theme throughout the premises.
Pullman Riga Old Town has a vegetal wall inside the ample atrium on ground floor that stretches for more than 20 meters wide and up to 5m high till it reaches the glass roof. Flowering and non-flowering plants have an important place in the landscaped exteriors of Pullman hotels and resorts. These include conference rooms, rest areas and dining areas. These places are like additional rooms that also need to be cozy and comfortable. Floral décor belongs here too. In these peaceful green settings, flowers are selected and placed according to the same high standards for quality and the same careful consideration as anywhere else in the hotel.
Together with AmCham we can develop our networking not only in the local market with local companies, but also reach out to good partners far away from Latvia.
