Radisson Suite Hotel Halifax completes $7M renovation, unveils new look

Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the world’s largest hotel groups, completed a $7-million renovation of the 120 all-suite Radisson Suite Hotel Halifax in Nova Scotia, Canada.  

The renovation of this hotel is another step in the company’s objective to have 75 percent of all Radisson hotels in North America complete renovations by year end. Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group has 15 Radisson hotels in Canada, and this renovation is part of the company’s Ambition 2015 strategy to position Radisson in the Americas as a first-class brand.

Manga Hotels, an Ontario based private company, acquired this property in 2011.

As part of the overhaul, all 120-suites have been re-imagined to include new plush linens, separate living rooms with pull-out sofas, up to three flat screen TVs per suite and updated bathrooms. Additional amenities now include complimentary high-speed Internet access, an updated fitness center, indoor pool, whirlpool and concierge services. The new lobby also has a lounge.

For the MICE market, the hotel offers two meetings rooms, totaling 3,000 square feet of flexible meeting space for up to 250 guests.

The Radisson Suite Hotel Halifax is near Nova Scotia's popular attractions, such as the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and Neptune Theatre, the Discovery Centre, Halifax Citadel and Public Gardens Park. Also nearby are Dalhousie University and Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.
