Radisson Hotel Group subsidiary Radisson Hospitality has signed a deal to open the Radisson Blu Hotel, Vadistanbul in Istanbul, Turkey. The 195-room hotel in Istanbul's business hub is slated to open at the end of 2018. 
 
“Radisson Blu remains the largest upper-upscale brand in Istanbul and our new addition will further cement the brand’s leading position in the city,” Elie Younes, EVP & CDO of Radisson Hotel Group, said in a statement. “We are incredibly proud to be part of the visionary Vadistanbul project, which has been developed as a joint venture initiative between Artaş İnşaat, Invest Eba İnşaat and Evyap–and already hailed as one of Istanbul’s most prestigious and emerging residential and commercial areas.” 

The new Radisson Blu will increase the group’s portfolio in Turkey to 23 hotels with 4,400 guestrooms operating and under development. The property will also be Istanbul's ninth Radisson Blu hotel, following the Radisson Blu Hotel, Istanbul Atakoy, the Radisson Blu Conference & Airport Hotel, Istanbul, the Radisson Blu Hotel, Istanbul Sisli, the Radisson Blu Hotel, Istanbul Pera, the Radisson Blu Residence, Istanbul Batisehir, the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Istanbul Tuzla, the Radisson Blu Hotel, Istanbul Asia and the Radisson Blu Bosphorus Hotel, Istanbul.

As part of Radisson Hotel Group’s expansion in Europe, the group also recently opened the Radisson Red Glasgow in late April 2018. The first new-build Radisson Red hotel in Europe has 174 guestrooms in the city’s West End near The Hydro and Glasgow’s media hub. It is Radisson’s third hotel in the city, following a Radisson Blu and a Park Inn by Radisson.
