Radisson Hotel Group has rebranded the Strand Stockholm under its Radisson Collection following a two-year refurbishment. 

Swedish architectural studio Wingårdhs designed the Radisson Collection Hotel, Strand Stockholm, completely revamping the property's 170 guestrooms and suites along with its meeting spaces, lobby, restaurant and bar.

The Strand Stockholm is in the capital city's center near Stockholm's Old Town, Gamla stan's shopping, bars and restaurants and several attractions, including The Modern Museum, Nordiska Kompaniet Department Store and the ABBA Museum. The hotel is also close to the Arlanda Express Train and Stockholm Arlanda Airport. 

The Strand Stockhom originally opened in 1912 for the Olympic Games. The hotel is known for hosting several celebrities, including Swedish actors Greta Garbo and Ingrid Bergman. 

The Strand Stockholm is Radisson Hotel Group’s 16th hotel in Sweden. Fifteen other hotels operate under the Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson brands in Stockholm, Helsingborg, Malmo, Gothenburg, Lund and Uppsala. 

The hotel is Radisson Collection's latest addition to the portfolio of five hotels across Europe and the Middle East. These properties operate in Belgrade, Serbia; Copenhagen, Denmark; Edinburgh, Scotland; Salmiya, Kuwait; and Muscat, Oman.

The next hotel to join the portfolio is Georgia's Tsinandali Estate—the first Radisson Collection hotel in Eastern Europe and Russia. The 141-room hotel is slated to open in October in the wine region of Kakheti, Georgia. The hotel will share the site with a vineyard near The Tsinandali Palace Museum of Prince Alexander Chavchavadze and Georgia’s capital Tbilisi.
