Vartan Hotel Reopens

Vartan Hotel reopened in Van after a two year shut down by authorities who insisted that the name "Vartan" is Armenian and stands for "victory." Owner Victor Bedoian–an Armenian-American has persisted that the hotel was named after his son–Vartan–gained backing by US authorities who lobbied Turkey to reopen the hotel.
