Radisson Hotel Group has opened a new property in Andermatt, Switzerland. The Radisson Blu Hotel Reussen, Andermatt, is operated by Radisson Hospitality AB under an international franchised agreement with Andermatt Swiss Alps AG.

Facing the Swiss Alps, the 224-room hotel is part of an extensive transformation that seeks to build on Andermatt's growing status as a year-round destination.
Situated halfway between Zurich and Milan (and 30 minutes away from Lucerne), Andermatt lies at an elevation of 1,444 meters and is accessible by car or train. The village includes an 18-hole Scotland-inspired golf course and a ski arena.
The hotel has 179 rooms and 45 suites and apartments, designed in the style typical of Swiss chalets. Public spaces include an open lobby lounge with a bar and a fireplace and the Spun restaurant. The health and wellness area includes a 25-meter pool, a sauna and a steam bath.
The hotel also has six meeting rooms and boardrooms as well as a multifunctional concert hall (opening in spring 2019), with seating for up to 700 guests. 
"The opening of the Radisson Blu Hotel is a key element in significantly increasing the bed capacity of Andermatt, showing that its development as a destination is flourishing," Franz-Xaver Simmen, CEO of Andermatt Swiss Alps, said in a statement. "Together with the new ski area Andermatt-Sedrun, two major projects have been completed and are new driving forces for the tourism sector."
