Radisson Hotel Group has announced the signing of the Radisson RED London Greenwich. It will be the first property to bring the group’s upscale, lifestyle select-service hotel brand to the English capital, joining other UK landmark Radisson RED hotels in Glasgow and Liverpool. Opening in 2020, the property will enjoy close proximity to London’s famous sights, including the O2 Arena, Prime Meridian, the legendary Cutty Sark and the cable car offering stunning views over the Thames, Canary Wharf and the City of London itself.
Alongside 70 rooms boasting the unique Radisson RED design, the hotel will offer a bistro, bar, and a gym. The new signing is part of an exciting €8.9bn (£8bn) project to redevelop Greenwich Peninsula and transform it into a must-visit destination with an array of residential, retail and office space.
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 plays 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 travellers, and I am eagerly looking forward to its grand opening.”
