CARLSON Rezidor Hotel Group will debut its new Radisson Red hotel brand in Asia-Pacific with the launch of the Radisson Red Shenyang Hunnan in north-eastern China.
Set to open in 2016, the 300-key Radisson Red Shenyang Hunnan will form part of a twin-hotel development including Radisson Blu Shenyang in the capital of Liaoning Province, Shenyang.
Located in the city’s CBD, Hunnan New District, in Shenyang National High-Tech Industrial Development Zone, the two hotels are also close to Shenyang International Exhibition Center, the Sports Stadium and Shenyang International Airport.
Both properties are owned by Shenyang New Times Investment.
The Radisson Red Shenyang Hunnan will focus on design, detail, choice, personal interaction and technology. Guests enter the hotel to find themselves in the art-themed Hi All Gallery, and interaction is also built into the F&B outlets Ouibar and the 24-hour Redeli, which are open and social spaces.
Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group’s president Asia Pacific, Thorsten Kirschke, said: “The signing of Radisson Red Shenyang Hunnan marks an important milestone for the Radisson Red brand, being the first in the world. We expect to see Radisson Red feature significantly in our portfolio growth in China, as well as across the region, as the brand has a strong relevance to the growing segment of millennial-minded travellers and a compelling value proposition for hotel owners and investors.
“Of the global target of 60 (properties) by 2020, we are confident that half of it will be in Asia-Pacific. This new addition to our China portfolio further strengthens our commitment to China. We will be growing our presence in China, from 13 hotels currently in operation to 41 within the next three years.”
Carlson Rezidor unveiled two news brands in February this year – Radisson Red and the Quorvus Collection, which is a portfolio of iconic hotels.
