Radisson Hotel Group today announced that Safehotels has certified its managed portfolio in the United States. Safehotels is the only, independent hotel safety and security certification company with a global reach across the world. This certification, based on the Global Hotel Security Standard®, is recognized by hotel and travel associations, the United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR) and major insurance brokers.

“We are thrilled to announce our managed portfolio of hotels in the United States have been certified by Safehotels,” said Ken Greene, president, Americas, Radisson Hotel Group. “The safety and security of our guests have always been our top priority and now that we have received this certification from a respected global company, we want everyone that visits our hotels to have peace of mind and enjoy a carefree stay.”
