Radisson Hotel Group has announced the opening of Mansard Riyadh, A Radisson Collection Hotel. It is the brand’s second hotel in the city.
Located in Riyadh’s northern neighbourhood of Ar Rabi, it is close to the King Abdullah Financial District.
The hotel has 191 rooms, serviced apartments, and duplex villas designed in a colour scheme of blue and beige.
The three-bedroom penthouse suite features hardwood floors and consists of a master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, three bedrooms, a living area, kitchen, and dining room which seats up to eight guests. The suite also has a whirlpool tub surrounded by marble floors.
The 230 sqm two-floor duplex villas have a fully-equipped kitchen, living room, powder room, and dining room with a table for six. On the second floor, there are three bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. The names of the villas reference the grand squares of Paris, such as Vendôme, Concorde, and Opéra.
The hotel’s facilities include six meeting rooms overlooking the hotel’s outdoor plaza.
Opening later this year in collaboration with New York City-based restaurant group Major Food Group, will be Carbone, one of the group’s flagship Michelin-starred restaurants that serves up an Italian American dining experience, and Sadelle’s, a brunch-time favourite from the heart of the SoHo neighbourhood in New York.
As far as its Covid-19 protocols go, Mansard Riyadh is implementing the Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol programme of in-depth cleanliness and disinfection practices developed in partnership with SGS, which are designed to ensure guest safety from check-in to check-out.
“We are absolutely delighted to open our second Radisson Collection hotel in Riyadh, joining Nofa Resort, A Radisson Collection Hotel, as we continue to grow our luxury lifestyle footprint in the Saudi Arabian market with exceptional hotels and unique hotel experiences across leisure, dining, fitness, wellness and sustainability,” said Tim Cordon, area senior vice-president, Middle East, and Africa at Radisson Hotel Group.
