Radisson Hotel Group has announced the signing of the Radisson RED London Greenwich in the UK.
Opening in 2020, the move will bring the Radisson Group’s upscale, lifestyle hotel brand to the English capital, alongside the other UK landmark Radisson RED hotels in Glasgow and Liverpool. The new signing is part of a £8bn project to redevelop Greenwich Peninsula and transform it into a must-visit destination.
Greenwich is a thriving tourist spot and is home to the world’s busiest concert and events venue, the O2 Arena. Located within walking distance, guests will find it easy to get to the O2 Arena from the hotel. The Radisson RED London Greenwich will also put guests within reach of some of London’s famous sights including the famous Prime Meridian, the Cutty Sark, several museums, and the cable car offering views over the Thames, Canary Wharf and the city.
Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: ‘Radisson RED is for those who wish to stand out of the crowd and it now lands in London. Opening in 2020, it perfectly blends business and play around the O2. A sincere appreciation goes to our partners for their trust in our people and our brands.’
Vivek Chadha, Owner of Nine Hotel Group, said: ‘We’re thrilled to have signed the agreement to bring a Radisson RED hotel to this side of London. Being so close to the multi-purpose O2 arena is hugely exciting, as I believe it’s the number one indoor music arena in the world and hosts the best global talent. Our hotel will be a representation of the culture and talent the arena attracts.’
Vijay Thakkar, Co-owner of the hotel, said: ‘We’re excited to ink the deal with Radisson Hotel Group to bring a Radisson RED property to London. The hotel shall attract both business and leisure travelers, and I am eagerly looking forward to its grand opening.’
With 70 rooms, the hotel will offer a bistro, bar, and a gym. Guests have plenty of travel options to reach the hotel and explore London, including major road links, multiple bus routes and a London Underground station not far from the property. London City Airport is five miles from the hotel.
Guests and professional business partners can enhance their experience with Radisson RED by participating in Radisson Rewards, a global loyalty programme offering benefits and rewards.
