Radisson Hotel Group has debuted its Radisson and Radisson Red brands in Norway, with the opening of a dual-branded development at Oslo airport.
The two properties are connected to the airport’s terminal building by a walkway, and offer a total of 514 rooms – 214 at the Radisson Red Oslo Airport and 300 at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Centre Oslo Airport.
The two hotels share public spaces, including Gamo restaurant and bar serving dishes such as grilled fillet of salmon, elk sausage in a brioche bun, and local Norwegian cheeses.
The property’s conference centre offers a total of 52 meeting spaces, ranging from boardrooms up to the 236 sqm ballroom which also has 480 sqm of pre-function space.
The new development is the group’s second dual-branded airport property in Europe – In 2020 Radisson announced it had split its existing Park Inn at London Heathrow airport into two hotels under its Radisson and Radisson Red brands.
Commenting on the opening Tom Flanagan Karttunen, area senior vice president for Radisson Hotel Group in Northern and Western Europe, said:
”We are proud to present Radisson Red Oslo Airport and Radisson Hotel and Conference Centre Oslo Airport, introducing both brands to Norway for the first time at such a significant location.
“This marks the second Radisson Red and Radisson dual-branded property in Northern and Western Europe following the successful opening of Radisson Red London Heathrow and Radisson Hotel and Conference Centre London Heathrow.
“With this new opening, we are pleased to offer 1,250 guest rooms spread over four different brands at Oslo Airport with 500 guest rooms and Radisson Blu Airport Hotel, Oslo Gardermoen, 233 rooms at Park Inn by Radisson Oslo Airport Hotel West and the new hotel with a total of 514 guest rooms.”
Radisson also completed a multi-million pound refurbishment of Oslo’s Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel in 2019.
