Radisson Collection to debut in France

Radisson Hospitality AB has signed its first Radisson Collection hotel in France in the La Défense business area of Paris. 

The Radisson Collection Hotel & Suites, Paris La Défense will bring the group’s portfolio in the country to 17 hotels and more than 3,000 rooms open or under development. No opening date was announced.

The hotel will be located in the Sisters Towers, a new mixed-use development by Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield. The two towers will be connected by an observation deck run by the hotel that will include a large space that can be turned into an auditorium or a banquet room.

"In an evolving real estate market, it’s increasingly critical to have the right neighbors around a high-profile hotel asset, and the Sisters Towers development is the perfect blend, combining luxury hospitality with state-of-the-art commercial real estate," said Elie Younes, EVP/chief development officer, Radisson Hotel Group.

The hotel, in the middle of the city’s business district, will have 309 rooms and apartments, 45 suites (including four executive suites and one presidential suite), a lobby bar, restaurant, fitness center and a spa. The hotel’s business center will feature multiple-use meeting rooms (including a ballroom) with panoramic views from the top of the tower. The Sky-Bar and Restaurant will be located on the 26th floor, and will create the connection between the two towers. The top floor will include an indoor infinity pool.
