Just a week after announcing two new properties for Warsaw, Radisson Hospitality AB, part of the Radisson Hotel Group, has opened the Radisson Hotel & Suites, Gdańsk in Poland. The hotel brings the group’s portfolio to 17 hotels and almost 3,800 rooms in operation or under development in the country.
The new-build hotel has 350 guestrooms and suites, including 12 junior suites, five suites and four apartments. Leisure facilities include a lobby bar, an all-day dining restaurant, a gym, a spa and a swimming pool. The meeting area has 1,000 square meters of space including a ballroom, four function rooms, seven meeting rooms and a separate area that can be used as a foyer or a function space.
Gdańsk is ranked as the third-most-visited city in Poland based on airport arrivals.
Yilmaz Yildirimlar, area SVP of the Central & Southern Europe region for Radisson Hotel Group, said that the company has faith in Poland’s “high potential market, especially in large tourist locations such as the Tri-City, where Radisson currently operates and develops three properties.
Investor interest seems apt given the region's growing demand with travelers. Last year, Warsaw alone had 6 million overnight stays, and according to a recent Cushman & Wakefield report, the solid results recorded by the hotels in central and eastern Europe during the past few years have attracted both developers’ attention and investors looking for higher returns compared to western markets.
