Radisson Hospitality AB, publicly listed on Nasdaq Stockholm, Sweden and part of the Radisson Hotel Group, announced the signing of the Park Inn by Radisson Oslo Airport Hotel West in Norway. Located near a critical hub of international travel, the hotel brings the group's portfolio in Norway to 24 hotels and more than 6,000 rooms in operation or under development.
Home to some of the world's largest shipping companies and shipbrokers, Oslo is a key location within the maritime industry. It's also a highly desirable tourist destination that's seeing rapid growth in its demand, with the number of visitors leaping by almost a fifth year-on-year.
Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: "We're delighted to continue our growth in Nordics – our home market – by signing a Park Inn by Radisson Oslo Airport Hotel West. This is our third hotel at the Oslo Gardermoen Airport and our ninth in city of Oslo. Our portfolio features 24 hotels in Norway alone and 60 across the entire Nordic region. As the leading and largest international hotel operator with Scandinavian roots, we look forward to continuing our heritage of world-class brands in great destinations and hubs."
Morten A. Kahrs, CEO Norlandia Hotel Group, representing Airport Hotelldrift AS, and the hotel owners, said: "We're excited to be partnering with Radisson Hotel Group to operate the hotel under one of the group's renowned global brands. We look forward to inviting the first guests to the new Park Inn by Radisson Oslo Airport Hotel West and delivering the outstanding service experience that Radisson Hotel Group customers expect from their stay."
Due to open by the end of this year, the Park Inn by Radisson Oslo Airport Hotel West will feature 233 guestrooms. It will also have a restaurant, a bar, a fitness room and 12 meeting and conference rooms.
The hotel will be a prime location just 3km from Oslo Airport, making it a perfect choice for international travelers. It will also be only a 20-minute train ride from Oslo city center and attractions such as the historic Akershus Fortress, the Viking Ship Museum and boat trips across Oslofjord.
