Olympic Entertainment Group (OEG), an Eastern European provider of casinos and gaming services, has opened its Hilton Tallinn Park in Estonia’s capital city of Tallinn. It is the first Hilton in the Baltic and OEG’s largest and most recent to date.
More than €45m was invested by Olympic in the venue that recently had its official grand opening. The new 202-room hotel includes 27 suites, and meeting space that includes a conference center that features ten high-end meeting rooms, as well as an executive lounge on the building’s top floor. The hotel also boasts one of Tallinn’s largest ballrooms, an outdoor terrace, a spa complete with an indoor and outdoor pool, and a restaurant with a bar. And located on the building’s ground floor is the company’s new flagship casino. Within Olympic Park Casino, there are separate areas for casino tables, slot machines, VIP players, and tournament poker. There is also a sports betting lounge and a large bar area that includes a stage.
Near Tallinn’s historic Old Town, the building is situated next to Polotsei Park in the center of the city. Meelis Press was tasked with designing the building, while Vertti Kivi created the interior design, and AS Merko Ehitus Eesti was the construction’s main contractor. Hilton Worldwide operates the hotel.
Hilton Worldwide President and Executive Vice President, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East, Simon Vincent, said, “More than 4.2m tourists visited Tallinn last year, with an increase in visitors from the UK, Germany, U.S., and Asia. Tallinn also continues to welcome thousands of travellers from Helsinki, Stockholm and St Petersburg every week across the Baltic Sea. We are delighted to be expanding our footprint to new countries and look forward to putting Hilton Tallinn Park on the map as a key destination for travellers and locals alike.”
Meanwhile, OEG announced its plan to merge its Olympic Casino Latvia SIA subsidiary with Latvian casino operator SIA Garkalns, which it acquired in December last year. The merger is expected to be completed by the year’s end.
