Brussels - June 21, 2018
Radisson Hospitality AB, publicly listed on Nasdaq Stockholm, Sweden and part of Radisson Hotel Group, is proud to announce the signing of a new Radisson Blu Hotel, Bruges in Belgium. The signing takes the group’s Belgian portfolio to 15 hotels in operation and under development. It was in 1989, that Radisson Hospitality AB (originally SAS International Hotels) decided to move its EMEA headquarters to Brussels, the Belgian and European capital, and has ever since remained committed to the country’s international potential.
Radisson Blu Hotel, Bruges is located in the beautiful, historical, fairy-tale medieval city center – The Markt – that dates back to 1905. The hotel is close to Central Station of Bruges (a UNESCO heritage site), and a short train ride away from the International Airport in Brussels (Zaventem). Zeebrugge, the international port of Bruges, is long-established as a major European commercial trade hub. Radisson Blu guests can look forward to some extraordinary historical landmarks, including the world-famous Grand Place; the 83m, 366-step, 13th century Belfort: and Begijnhof (the Beguinage); award-winning dining; a legacy of lace; and the dreamy canals – which is what makes Bruges, a movie-makers’ magnet.
Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “Bruges is beautiful! The well-informed travelers, who appreciate art, history, fine dining, culture, and style – Bruges is a paradise, and often a secret. Radisson Hotel Group is delighted to add another jewel of a destination to its portfolio of world-class destinations. Radisson Blu, the largest upper upscale hotel brand of Europe, could not have picked a better destination to showcase itself than Bruges. We are proud, privileged and looking forward to opening our doors in August 2018. Welcome to Bruges!”
Radisson Blu Hotel, Bruges will offer 109 designer rooms and suites, including 19 family rooms. It will also feature a specialty restaurant with an outdoor terrace. The hotel’s Meetings and Events facilities will expand over two floors and six meeting rooms, the largest of which can accommodate upto 120 people. The spacious 12th floor meeting space will offer stunning views of this iconic city views.
