Radisson Collection Brand continues rapid expansion of iconic hotel properties
Radisson Collection’s rapid growth marks the notable momentum of Radisson Hotel Group’s foray into luxury
Radisson Hotel Group has had a stellar year of openings and looks forward to more compelling new additions to its already impressive collection of properties comprising the Radisson Collection brand. Launched in 2018 as a new luxury lifestyle collection of hotels for experience-driven travellers, Radisson Collection’s rapid growth marks the notable momentum of Radisson Hotel Group’s foray into luxury.
In an ongoing continuation of thoughtful and strategic growth, Radisson Collection will have 32 hotels and resorts in 19 countries by the end of 2022. Made up of iconic properties in unique locations, each hotel is authentic to the destination while united by the brands hallmarks of signature dining, local art and experiences, creating genuine connections. The pivotal new additions slated to open in the next few years build upon the success and heritage of existing properties within the Radisson Collection while also establishing the brand’s position within the luxury lifestyle hospitality sphere.
Inspired F&B experiences
Centred around the belief that culinary exploration is an integral part of travel, restaurants in Radisson Collection hotels are conceived as social destinations for locals and global travellers alike. The cuisine of Michelin-starred chef Eneko Atxa is featured at Eneko Basque Brussels at the Radisson Collection Hotel, Grand Place Brussels and the Eneko Basque Radisson Collection Hotel, Magdalena Plaza Sevilla. Basque’s culinary offering is a modern interpretation of Basque cuisine with local touches.
Currently under renovation along with the hotel within which its housed, Michelin-starred restaurant Les Loges will reopen with the debut of the Cour Des Loges Lyon, A Radisson Collection Hotel, in early 2023 after a luxury elevation to the existing heritage hotel. Chef Anthony Bonnet and his team offer a daring and creative cuisine, making the restaurant an enticing destination within Lyon.
Adding to the culinary credentials of the brand, an outpost of New York’s Michelin-starred Carbone restaurant is set to open within the recently opened Mansard Riyadh, A Radisson Collection Hotel in 2023.
Connecting curious travellers to local art and culture
Local art and culture are reflected throughout the décor and spirit of Radisson Collection hotels inviting guests to immerse themselves in each locale. Local partnerships and collaborations facilitate guests to engage with local art and artisans, whether it be through the medium of lacemaking, opera, pottery, or even craft spirits. Radisson Collection’s ongoing Global Art Series, launched in 2021, has been formed through collaborations with emerging contemporary artists to create immersive artwork highlighting iconic Radisson Collection Hotel locations through both Instagram and in-person exhibitions.
Living design across historic landmarks and modern conceptions
Radisson Collection is a new generation of iconic hotels, many of which are heritage buildings with rich histories rooted in the locale. From the storied Radisson Collection Strand Hotel, Stockholm to the Palazzo Montemartini Rome, A Radisson Collection Hotel, each immerses travelers in the authenticity of the destination. Whether a historical property or a new paragon of design, all are emblematic of the brand’s appreciation of exceptional design as an enhancement and complement to functional living.
