Radisson Hotel Group has opened a 98-room Park Inn by Radisson hotel in Wismar, Northern Germany, in partnership with MV Werften.
Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, chairman/CEO of Genting Hong Kong and owner of MV Werften; Oliver Behrendt, managing director of MV Werften Alter Holzhafen Beherbergungsstätte; and Wismar Mayor Thomas Beyer cut the ribbon in front of the hotel entrance at a ceremony attended by more than 150 guests.
“This new building project is something very special for us,” said Tan Sri Lim during the event. “The hotel unites two of our most important business areas: tourism and cruises. It is also part of our sustained involvement and extensive investment in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.”
All guestrooms at the Park Inn by Radisson Wismar were created at the city’s MV Werften Fertigmodule shipyard and designed to look like a ship’s cabin. Public spaces include a restaurant, two conference rooms, a bar and a lounge with views of the Port of Wismar.
“As the shipyard and the historic old town are in the immediate vicinity, the hotel is the ideal accommodation not only for partners, consultants and guests of the shipyard, but also for business travelers, individual tourists and families,” said Behrendt. “And our hotel is the only place where you can stay overnight on land while enjoying the atmosphere of a cruise ship.”
