Radisson RED brings playful style to Vienna
12 Dec 2018
Radisson Hospitality AB, publicly listed on Nasdaq Stockholm, Sweden, and part of Radisson Hotel Group, is delighted to announce the signing of the Radisson RED Vienna in Austria. The Imperial City, world famous for its music, architecture and culture, is the perfect location to welcome the group’s upscale, lifestyle select-service brand.
Opening in 2021, the Radisson RED Vienna will bring a playful twist to the conventional hotel scene in Austria’s capital. Vienna itself is a highly desirable destination that has been named the city with the world’s highest quality of life for eight consecutive years – and it also sits at the top of the Roland Berger Smart City Index.
Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: "We’re excited to bring a new vibe to Vienna with the bold, eclectic and playful Radisson RED. Vienna, one of the most beautiful and fashionable cities in the world, is the perfect fit for RED. Radisson RED is a very relevant brand to both guests and owners in many German-speaking markets.”
Located in the Leopoldstadt area of the city, the newly built hotel will allow guests to stay in one of Vienna’s most vibrant and trendy areas. The popular Danube Canal, with its numerous beach bars and restaurants, is nearby while the hotel will also be in walking distance of the city centre.
Stepping inside, guests will be able to experience all the facilities they need to relax in comfort. Designed by the award-winning architect Martin Lesjak from INNOCAD architecture, the Radisson RED Vienna will have 179 guest rooms as well as a restaurant and bar, a gym, and a creative Meetings & Events space. It will also feature a unique 240sqm courtyard adorned with hanging gardens, alongside a spectacular rooftop bar and terrace that will offer stunning views out over Vienna – including its most prominent landmark, Stephan’s Dome.
Guests of the Radisson RED Vienna will find it the ideal base from which to explore the city. Many of Vienna’s top attractions can be reached on foot, while public transport options – including nearby metro stops – make it simple for guests to get around and make the most of their stay.
PKF hotelexperts supported the hotel developer with a feasibility study and completed the operator search process for the planned Radisson RED Vienna, which will be operated by Radisson Hospitality AB under an international lease agreement.
Christian Walter, Managing Director, PKF hotelexperts, said: „We‘ve had the site on the Donaukanal, just next to the popular Tel Aviv Beach, on our radar for several years. When the plot eventually became available, we were able to share our enthusiasm with our clients. We believe that Vienna‘s second district is one of the city‘s most vibrant neighborhoods and are very happy to have secured Radisson RED as the perfect match for the project developers.“
