Trendy, opulent and authentic hotels located in the world’s most unique cultural locations: It’s an estimable proposition from Radisson Collection. While most hotels stay true to guests’ whims and wishes, Radisson Collection takes this a step further and stays true to each destination. By marrying the contemporary design, iconic architecture as well as the particular flavours and exceptional experiences that make each city truly great, their hotels are less a place to stay but rather a port of call for locals and travellers alike.
What exactly do we mean? Let us transport you to the illustrious Radisson Collection Royal Hotel, Copenhagen. Designed by renowned Danish architect Arne Jacobsen (his only hotel, mind you), this property ushers in a new era of not only Danish modernism but also hostelries, as it’s regarded as the world’s first design hotel. The all-encompassing body of work brims with stunning skyline views and Egg, Swan and Drop furnishings. For some full-bodied Scandi flair, the hotel’s five signature suites feature the sleek, spacious and sexy surroundings reminiscent of the Tivoli Gardens just outside. The Radisson Collection story then continued north to Sweden, where Radisson Collection Strand Hotel, Stockholm tells a similar story. First opened for the Olympic Games in 1912, the iconic Strand Hotel has been donning its decadent wardrobe for well-over a century, luring legendary socialites from Greta Garbo and Ingrid Bergman to Frank Sinatra and Audrey Hepburn. A natural choice for culture-hounds, not only is the hotel perfectly positioned near the charming “Gamla stan”, but it also dons the requisite style and simplicity you’d expect in Stockholm – with a fantastic cocktail bar and Swedish brasserie complementing the classic setting.
Although Radisson Collection’s heritage may have begun in the Nordics, their properties, which will soon number more than 35 hotels globally, have become synonymous with opulence throughout the world. In London, for example, The May Fair, A Radisson Collection Hotel, which was inaugurated by King George V and Queen Mary in 1927, sits in cultural heart of the British capital. Mere steps away from the city’s most affluent shops, restaurants and historic galleries, the hotel is intertwined with English high society, and, inside, its eminence is announced with glimmering Baccarat chandeliers, spacious suites with Sicilian marble bathrooms and 24-hour butler service, as well as a contemporary fine dining restaurant. It’s easy to see why this is also the official hotel of London Fashion Week. And, in the Middle East, Nofa Riyadh, A Radisson Collection Resort in Saudi Arabia presents every wish one could dream in a truly luxurious desert oasis – world-class golf, a wildlife kingdom and an equestrian estate, all this in addition to 57 private villas with individual gardens and plunge pools.
The story is still only beginning for the relatively upstart hotel assemblage, which will soon carry more than 35 hotels globally. Already on offer is Grand Hotel Savoia Cortina d’Ampezzo, A Radisson Collection Hotel in the exclusive ski resort of Cortina d’Ampezzo as well as Radisson Collection Hotel, Xing Guo Shanghai and Radisson Collection Hotel, Grand Place Brussels. In the near future, guests can expect seven more premium properties in cities such as Seville and Lyon – this in addition to travel meccas like London, Moscow, Milan, Paris and remote expanses like the Blue Mountains in Australia and Bodrum.
