Radisson Hospitality AB, part of Radisson Hotel Group, has signed a deal to open the Radisson Red Økern Oslo, which will be the first-ever Radisson Red hotel in Norway. The property is slated to open in 2021.

In that year, Oslo’s Økern Portal building will be complete. This 81,000-square-meter business building will include office space, a hotel, a restaurant and cultural experiences. The property is being built in partnership with the real estate owner Oslo Pensjonsforsikring AS and Norlandia Hotel Group.

The Radisson Red Økern Oslo will have 224 rooms and suites, several meeting rooms, a restaurant and a rooftop bar.

Virtual Event

Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


The hotel is being built with the aim of achieving BREAAM-Nor certification. BREEAM is a third-party sustainability assessment method, which only a handful of all Norwegian hotels have achieved, including the Radisson Blu Atlantic Hotel, Stavanger in Norway.

The hotel will be located centrally at Økern, within walking distance of the metro, airport express bus and Ring 3. 

The Radisson Red Økern Oslo will be operated by Radisson Hospitality under an International Franchise Agreement.
