Rezidor plans a new Radisson hotel at Hamburg Airport
The Rezidor Hotel Group plans a new Radisson hotel at Hamburg Airport – with an opening in July 2009. The Radisson Airport Hotel, a leased property, will have direct connection to Terminal 2 serving Lufthansa and other Star Alliance flights.
Besides 270 modern designed guestrooms, the property will feature a restaurant, a bar, a fitness area and 650 square metres conference & meeting facilities. On two levels directly under the building, 168 public parking spaces will be available. Owner of the ground is the Freie Hansestadt Hamburg; further project partners are Airport-Hotel-Hamburg GmbH & Co. KG, and FAY Management Holding AG.
“Germany is a strong home market for us, and Hamburg an important location”, comments Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of The Rezidor Hotel Group, “we opened the first German Radisson SAS Hotel in this city – until today one of our most successful hotels in the country. We know the market well and are looking forward to manage a second and strategically located property in town.” Hamburg Airport is ranked as the 5th busiest German airport, used by 70 airlines and passed by more than 11 million passengers per year.
On an international level and in between 2007 and 2009, The Rezidor Hotel Group plans to add 20,000 rooms to its portfolio.
