Radisson Hotel Group signed a new Radisson Red property in Plano, Texas. The new-build hotel will offer 100 guestrooms, along with the brand’s signature amenities and onsite restaurant, OUIBar + KTCHN.

The lifestyle hotel is located at the northwest corner of Parker Road and U.S. 75 Central Expressway, providing a location for guests traveling to the Plano and Richardson area. Construction on the hotel is anticipated to begin in 2019, with plans to open mid-2020.

“We are thrilled to bring Radisson Red into the great state of Texas marking the brand’s first hotel in the South,” Ken Greene, president, Americas, Radisson Hotel Group, said in a statement. “This hotel signing exemplifies our growth strategy outlined in our company’s five-year plan. With the hard work of our development team, we are planning to announce more key signings in the year to come.”

The Radisson Red will be the brand’s fourth hotel in the United States. This signing follows the recent opening of Radisson Red Portland (Ore.) Downtown and the anticipated opening of Radisson Red in Miami in 2019. The brand opened its first U.S. hotel in Minneapolis. There are also locations in Brussels; Cape Town, South Africa; Campinas, Brazil; and Glasgow, Scotland.
