Radisson Collection Hotel, Warsaw
Elie Younes, Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “Located in the heart of the city, this property becomes part of a select group of 25 hotels to have joined Radisson Collection since last year. We’re grateful to our partners, Europa Capital, for their trust in our people and our brands.”
The Radisson Collection Hotel, Warsaw will feature 311 rooms and suites, a significantly upgraded modern lobby, lounge and open-plan communal areas – as well as a restaurant venue.
James Pennington, Director at Europa Capital, said: “Having acquired the Radisson Blu Hotel building in 2017 with our partners WX Management Services, we’re delighted to be launching this comprehensive refurbishment, which is in line with our asset management strategy. These works will modernize the existing property and upgrade it to deliver Warsaw’s newest five-star hotel, right in the heart of Poland’s capital. Warsaw is a prime destination for business travellers and a growing number of tourists so, by working closely with Radisson Hotel Group, our ambition is to create a modern, fit-for-purpose hotel to match the city’s dynamism.”
The Radisson Collection Hotel, Warsaw will be operated by Radisson Hospitality AB under an International Management agreement.
Radisson RED Warsaw
Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “Radisson RED stands out from the crowd, so we’re excited to launch this bold, eclectic and playful brand in Warsaw. It’s the 17th property in our rapidly expanding portfolio in the country. Poland was also recently upgraded to ‘developed market’ status by FTSE Russell; the first country to experience such an upgrade in a decade.”
The newly built Radisson RED Warsaw will feature 267 guest rooms, a restaurant and bar, a gym, and an 820 sqm creative Meetings & Events space. Designed by the well-known architectural office Arquitectonica, the hotel will be an integral part of the 140m high-rise building Liberty Tower, which complements the Warsaw skyline.
Cezary Jarzabek, Founder and CEO of Golub GetHouse, the investor of the Liberty Tower, said: “We’re proud and satisfied to start our collaboration with one of the world’s largest hotel groups. Radisson RED is known for locating its hotels in buildings with distinguished architecture, generating a creative atmosphere and ensuring quick access from every corner of the city. Liberty Tower certainly blends seamlessly into this trend and is even ahead of it. I’m confident that the Radisson RED spaces at Liberty Tower will be among the most modern and comfortable in the world, and people staying here will enjoy the unique atmosphere of Warsaw.”
The Radisson RED Warsaw will be operated by Radisson Hospitality AB under an International Lease Agreement.
