Rezidor today opens the new Radisson SAS Royal Hotel, Dublin

The Rezidor Hotel Group today inaugurates its 11th Radisson SAS Hotel in Ireland – the stylish 150-room Radisson SAS Royal Hotel in the heart of Dublin city. The number of Rezidor rooms opened in 2007 now increases to 3.703 – between 2007 and 2009 the group will add 20.000 new rooms to its portfolio.

The newly built deluxe hotel is located at the crossroads of Golden Lane and Chancery Lane, adjacent to Dublin Castle. It is a Radisson SAS Royal, an accolade only given to a chosen few of the Radisson SAS hotels, the first of which was the Radisson SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, developed by the famous Danish architect Arne Jacobsen. Designed by Anthony Reddy & Associates with interiors by Graven Images, the Radisson SAS Royal Hotel, Dublin has some uniquely chic features, from the spectacular lobby to the rooftop terrace and including a fabulous bar on the 7th floor, available for private hire, which has panoramic views over the city centre. Besides 150 rooms and suites which are equipped with latest technology such as free high-speed and wireless internet access, the hotel offers fifteen state-of-the-art, flexible meeting rooms, and a ballroom/conference room with pre-function areas comfortably catering for up to 400 delegates. The all-day lounge bar of the property is called “Sure”, an affectionate reference to the Irish love of the word in all its meanings. Friendly and welcoming, “Verres En Vers” is the contemporary, French-style, all-day brasserie and bar at the hotel, whose name translates as ‘poetry in a glass’. It seats up to 100 guests for lunch, dinner and Radisson SAS’s Super Buffet Breakfast.

“This hotel is an excellent addition to our existing Irish portfolio”, comments Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of The Rezidor Hotel Group. “Its location could not be more perfect – literally in the heart of the city, a few minutes’ stroll from all shops, theatres and the main business districts. Both leisure and business travellers will experience our Yes I Can-philosophy there.”
