Radisson Hotel Group subsidiary Radisson Hospitality signed the new Radisson Blu Hotel, Prague in Czech Republic.
The hotel group is rebranding an existing hotel to open the Radisson Blu Hotel, Prague. The existing building is in the center of Charles Square near Prague’s Old Town and New Town.
The new Radisson Blu will undergo a full renovation. The 160-room property is slated to open in the second quarter of 2019.
“We are delighted to sign a new Radisson Blu Hotel in Prague, one of Europe’s gateway cities. With this deal, our team further cements the leading position of Radisson Blu in Europe as the largest upper upscale brand, that is relevant to both investors and guests," Elie Younes, EVP & CDO of Radisson Hotel Group, said in a statement.
The hotel will join Radisson's Park Inn Hotel Prague once renovations and rebranding are complete. This will also be Radisson's Blu's second property in Prague, following the 206-room Radisson Blu Alcron Hotel, Prague near Wenceslas Square and Charles Bridge.
Radisson Blu Hotel, Prague is also set to follow the opening of the Radisson Blu Hotel, Bruges in Belgium in August 2018. The 109-room property is in The Markt city center, which dates to 190 near the Central Station of Bruges, the International Airport in Brussels, the Bruges international port Zeebrugge, and landmarks, including Grand Place, Belfort and Begijnhof.
Radisson Hospitality’s portfolio in the Czech Republic includes the Park Inn by Radisson Ostrava. The group recently added the Park Inn by Amsterdam City West to its portfolio in Europe in early July 2018. The 476-room hotel designed by Karim Rashid opened in the mixed-use development Ven Amsterdam near the Schiphol Amsterdam Airport. Radisson Hospitality now operates four hotels in Amsterdam.
