Radisson Collection Hotel continues to grow its footprint with the latest opening of Magdalena Plaza Sevilla hotel in Spain. This is Radisson Hotel Group’s first Radisson Collection hotel in the country. Located in the heart of Seville and on the doorstep of royal palaces, theatres and museums, the five-star hotel proudly presents innovative Spanish cuisine by Michelin star chef Eneko Atxa and chef Manuel Berganza.
Radisson Collection Hotel, Magdalena Plaza Sevilla has 89 rooms, including five suites – two of them being penthouse suites with private spacious terraces and spectacular views – a pool, solarium, gym and two exclusive restaurants. The hotel’s elegant design draws inspiration from the city’s history and mix of architectural styles throughout its guest rooms, restaurants and rooftop bar and pool, as one of Spain’s most prestigious hotel projects. The launch of the hotel is part of Radisson Hotel Group’s ambitious growth plan in Spain and the Group’s first hotel opening in Spain under the Radisson Collection brand, renowned for offering exceptional service and guest experiences.
“Radisson Collection brings together emblematic hotels in unique locations worldwide that stand out for their exceptional style and authenticity. They are designed to be different in each of the cities where they are located such as Moscow, Milan, London, Copenhagen, Bodrum and Shanghai”, explains Federico J. González, CEO of Radisson Hotel Group and added: “Seville is a perfect destination to introduce the first property of this brand in Spain”.
The hotel entirely runs on renewable energy, consumes 40% less water than the reference building and has achieved the LEED Innovation credit for creating a ‘Walkable Project site’, which consists of incorporating design elements that promote walking, cycling, and other non-motorized transportation in the hotel location and its surrounding community. The building has achieved Spain’s first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Hospitality Gold level.
“Our design approach came from our research, studying Seville’s buildings, learning about Plaza de la Magdalena’s history. We felt that the architecture didn’t have to shout or compete for attention. It could be calm in its proportions, scale and relationship with the square. We were looking to the past and the future at the same time, considering what felt right – the result is a building that is of its place, but also of its time,” explained Etienne Borgos, Borgos Pieper.
“A great design - that is at the same time functional, respectful of the environment, and beautiful - will always add value to the city, in both spiritual and economic terms”, said Javier Illán, CEO of Millenium Hotels Real Estate, the developer and owner of the project.
