Radisson Hospitality AB, publicly listed on Nasdaq Stockholm, Sweden, and part of Radisson Hotel Group, is delighted to announce the signing of the Radisson RED Warsaw. The upscale, lifestyle select-service brand will boast the best mixture of the Polish capital’s musical, architectural and cultural scenes.
Opening in 2023, the Radisson RED Warsaw will bring new life to the conventional hotel landscape in the city; creating experiences that are made to be shared, through a laidback atmosphere, an exciting social scene and bold design. Founded more than 800 years ago (and now the largest city in Poland), Warsaw is a hub for politics, culture and industry, and enjoys excellent connections to the rest of Europe – making it the perfect fit for Radisson RED.
Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “Radisson Red stands out from the crowd. We’re excited to launch the bold, eclectic and playful Radisson RED brand in Warsaw. This is our 17th property in our rapidly expanding portfolio in the country. Poland was also recently upgraded to ‘developed market’ status by FTSE Russell; the first country to experience such an upgrade in a decade.”
The newly built Radisson RED Warsaw will feature 267 guest rooms, a restaurant and bar, a gym, and an 820sqm creative Meetings & Events space. Designed by the well-known architectural office Arquitectonica, the hotel will be an integral part of the exceptional 140m high-rise building Liberty Tower, which complements the Warsaw skyline.
Cezary Jarząbek, Founder and CEO of Golub GetHouse, the investor of the Liberty Tower, said: “We’re proud and satisfied to start cooperation with one of the world’s largest hotel groups. Radisson RED is known for locating its hotels in buildings with distinguished architecture, generating creative atmosphere and ensuring quick access from every corner of the city. Liberty Tower certainly blends seamlessly into this trend and is even ahead of it. I’m confident that the Radisson RED spaces at Liberty Tower will be among the most modern and comfortable in the world, and people staying here will enjoy the unique atmosphere of Warsaw.”
In the process of lease agreement negotiations Golub GetHouse was represented by advisory company Hotel Professionals.
Alex Kloszewski, Managing Partner at Hotel Professionals Sp. z o. o., added: “We are delighted to have managed the process of brand search, and eventual long-term lease agreement negotiations for our client Golub GetHouse and particularly working with Radisson a brand sentimentally attached to my hospitality career was a pleasure.”
The Radisson RED Warsaw will be operated by Radisson Hospitality AB under an international lease agreement.
