As part of the ‘Heart of the City’ regeneration project that Sheffield is currently undergoing, the hotel plays a pivotal role in shaping the city’s new identity while staying true to its roots”, Valerie Donaldson explains.

In a direct nod to the nearby Peak District, the hotel takes inspiration from organic shapes and colors found in nature, with natural materials and steel details and merging these with contemporary design elements to instantly make guests feel at ease. The guest rooms, including one junior suite, reflect the hotel’s refined yet comfortable style, with many rooms boasting views of The Peace Gardens and the old clock tower and city central points.

A culinary journey with panoramic views

At the top-floor restaurant and bar, Governor Gupta, food enthusiasts and friends can come together to celebrate the rich flavors of northern India. Boasting panoramic views, Governor Gupta appeals to both locals and adventurous travelers. With a mix of cozy booth seating, open space tables and a terrace perfect for social gatherings, it provides an inviting and warm atmosphere. Guests can expect creative small plates, kebabs and grills with a Northern Indian flair and soft pillowy naans to be dished out and all perfectly paired with amazing cocktails with Indian influences, wines and bubbly.

The hotel’s six meeting and event spaces offer various configurations and versatile settings. The meeting and event area includes a spacious breakout area, private bar and a courtyard for outdoor use. With its upscale meeting facilities, old-world architecture and contemporary touches, the Radisson Blu Hotel piques new interest in Sheffield as a city of contrasts, of past and present, history and regeneration. At the same time, it connects locals to a world of memorable moments with Radisson Blu.

Located just a ten-minute walk from Sheffield train station and a stone’s throw from both the City Hall and Europe’s largest purpose-built food hall, Cambridge Street Collective, the hotel offers an ideal base for urban exploring and weekend escapes in Sheffield.

Sheffield has transformed into a vibrant cultural hub alive with theatres, retail, and nightlife. Emphasizing its commitment to green spaces and sustainability, the city boasts innovative parks and green corridors, and its location on the edge of the Peak District offers easy access to stunning natural landscapes for outdoor enthusiasts.

Tom Flanagan Karttunen, Area Senior Vice President Northern & Western Europe, Radisson Hotel Group, adds: “The opening of Radisson Blu Hotel, Sheffield marks a significant milestone for us and the city. Located in the heart of Sheffield and part of the ’Heart of the City’ regeneration investment, this hotel is the first new hotel in the city for many years. We are excited to bring a touch of Blu to the UK’s greenest city, at a prime location for leisure guests, corporates and meeting and events.
