Radisson Hotel Group has opened a Radisson Blu urban resort in Shanghai.

Situated in the city’s rapidly expanding Hongqiao business district, the 439-room Radisson Blu Forest Manor Shanghai Hongqiao was built from a blueprint based on the concept of a royal Spanish court. The property is 1 kilometer from the National Exhibition and Convention Center and 3 kilometers from Hongqiao International Airport, which handles more than 40 million passengers a year, and Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station, the main terminal for a series of high-speed rail lines.

For meetings and events, the property has a 1,000-square-meter grand ballroom and seven separate function spaces. Outdoor functions can be arranged for the pool terrace or palm garden.
