Radisson Collection brand continues rapid expansion of iconic hotel properties

Radisson Hotel Group has had a stellar year of openings and looks forward to more compelling new additions to its already impressive collection of properties comprising the Radisson Collection brand. Launched in 2018 as a new luxury lifestyle collection of hotels for experience-driven travelers, Radisson Collection’s rapid growth marks the notable momentum of Radisson Hotel Group’s foray into luxury.

In an ongoing continuation of thoughtful and strategic growth, Radisson Collection will have 32 hotels and resorts in 19 countries by the end of 2022.  Made up of iconic properties in unique locations, each hotel is authentic to the destination while united by the brand’s hallmarks of signature dining, local art & experiences, creating genuine connections. The pivotal new additions slated to open in the next few years build upon the success and heritage of existing properties within the Radisson Collection while also establishing the brand’s position within the luxury lifestyle hospitality sphere.

Centered around the belief that culinary exploration is an integral part of travel, restaurants in Radisson Collection hotels are conceived as social destinations for locals and global travelers alike. The cuisine of Michelin-starred chef Eneko Atxa is featured at Eneko Basque Brussels at the Radisson Collection Hotel, Grand Place Brussels, and the Eneko Basque Radisson Collection Hotel, Magdalena Plaza Sevilla. Basque’s culinary offering is a modern interpretation of Basque cuisine with local touches. Earlier this year Eneko Axta debuted an innovative new restaurant NKO by Eneko alongside the opening of the Radisson Collection Hotel, Gran Vía Bilbao, bringing together the spirit of Basque and Japanese culinary traditions amidst a stunning rooftop setting.

Currently, under renovation along with the hotel within which it’s housed, Michelin-starred restaurant, Les Loges will re-open with the debut of the Cour Des Loges Lyon, A Radisson Collection Hotel in summer 2023 after a luxury elevation to the existing heritage hotel. Chef Anthony Bonnet and his team offer daring and creative cuisine, making the restaurant an enticing destination within Lyon. Set inside a stunning, Florentine courtyard and surrounded by a dazzling, 17-meter-high glass canopy, Les Loges merges the romance of Renaissance-era dining with modern techniques applied to the finest French ingredients.

Adding to the culinary credentials of the brand, an outpost of New York’s Michelin-starred Carbone restaurant is set to open within the recently opened Mansard Riyadh, A Radisson Collection Hotel in 2023.

Art and design are recurring signature elements in Radisson Collection hotels, which feature art from both local and internationally celebrated artists while also celebrating the architectural heritage of the buildings in which many of the hotels are housed. Local art and culture are reflected throughout the décor and spirit of Radisson Collection hotels inviting guests to immerse themselves in each locale. Local partnerships and collaborations facilitate guests to engage with local artists and artisans, whether it be through the medium of lacemaking, opera, pottery, or even craft spirits. Radisson Collection hotels are situated in the midst of dynamic cities, with locations carefully selected to ensure travelers the ideal springboards from which to explore and discover.

Radisson Collection’s ongoing Global Art Series, launched in 2021, has been formed through collaborations with emerging contemporary artists to create immersive artwork highlighting iconic Radisson Collection Hotel locations through both Instagram and in-person exhibitions. The first collaboration in the series was with contemporary artistic illustrator, Fei Wang, @mr.slowboy, known for his fashion creds and playful charisma. His artwork featured The May Fair, A Radisson Collection Hotel in London, and Radisson Collection Hotel, Palazzo Touring Club Milan, both properties central to the fashion scene. For the second series, Radisson Collection partnered with artist Rich McCor, aka @paperboyo, who took residence at Radisson Collection Hotel, Gran Vía Bilbao to produce content from an immersive local perspective using crafted paper cut-outs to transform and embellish the local surroundings. Rich McCor has applied his artistic technique in his discovery of Radisson Collection hotels in Manchester, Berlin, Stockholm, and Copenhagen in addition to Bilbao. Radisson Collection’s third art series was recently launched at the Radisson Collection Hotel, Palazzo Nani Venice featuring the work of surrealist photographer Minh T, @thismintymoment. His artistic view of the Cannaregio neighborhood around the canal front of Venice hotel is currently on exhibit at the hotel as well as through social media. Radisson Collection’s Global Art Series was recognized in October 2022 with a Travel Weekly Magellan Gold Award for its integrated social media campaign.
