Radisson Hotel Group has announced plans for US expansion at its Americas Business Conference.

Five hotels are set to open across the US, including three Radisson Red hotels in the cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco and Nashville.

The Nashville hotel (pictured above) will be a renovation of an existing property in Printers Alley, which will have six floors added to create 120 rooms. The hotel, set to open in the third quarter of 2020, will feature the first-ever Radisson Red speakeasy in its basement.

Radisson Red’s second hotel in San Francisco will be a $14 million renovation of a historic property on Market Street, located across from the Uber and Twitter headquarters. The 120-room hotel is set to open in the third quarter of 2021, featuring a fitness centre, games room and the brand’s signature restaurant.

The brand’s other San Francisco property was announced last year and is scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Meanwhile, a new-build Radisson Red in the Los Angeles Arts District is set to open in the first quarter of 2024. It will have 140 rooms, a fitness centre, meeting spaces and a rooftop bar. It will also include the brand’s signature restaurant Ouibar and Kitchn.

Additional upcoming US properties for the group include Radisson Hotel Long Island City, set to open in the third quarter of this year with 380 rooms, and the Radisson Hotel Raleigh-Durham Airport, which will have 140 rooms, 148 sqm of meeting space, onsite dining, a fitness centre and an outdoor pool. The property is set to open in the third quarter of 2021.

Commenting on the Radisson Red US expansion, Terry Sanders, group chief development officer for the Americas, said:

“Over the past two years, our team has been working aggressively to grow our Americas portfolio, primarily in key gateway markets in the US.

“These signings, many of them new-build hotels, from the Music City to the sunny West Coast, exemplify the commitment from our owners, who understand our vision and are helping us to expend these great brands across the Americas.”
