07 Mar 2016

2016_03_07_PI_Antwerp.jpgRezidor,  one of the most dynamic hotel companies worldwide and a member of the Carlson Rezidor  Hotel Group, announces three new Park Inn by Radisson Hotels in Belgium: the properties  in Antwerp (133 rooms), Bruges (111 rooms) and Hasselt (84 rooms) bring  Rezidor’s Park Inn portfolio in Belgium to a total of 8 hotels with 925 rooms  in operation or under development.

“Belgium  is an important growth market for our mid-scale core brand. Park Inn by  Radisson has been re-launched as a fresh and dynamic offer to the growing  clientele of Gen X and Y, and is based on the three pillars of choice,  connectivity and community”, said Wolfgang M. Neumann, President & CEO of  Rezidor.

“Our  long-term strategy targets a scaled growth of Park Inn by Radisson in BeNeLux  and the brand development in key primary and secondary cities. These signings  support our goal – and allow us to further strengthen our presence in Hasselt and  Antwerp where we are already present”, added Elie Younes, Executive Vice  President & Chief Development Officer of Rezidor.

The Park Inn by Radisson Antwerp Berchem will be prominently located across the Antwerp-Berchem train station and along  the ring road. The site is one of the most important urban re-development  projects in Flanders. Besides 133 comfortable guest rooms, the property will  also feature a lobby bar & lounge, an all-day-dining restaurant, 3 meeting  rooms and a multi-purpose space. The opening is planned for Q1 2018.

The Park Inn by Radisson Hasselt will be  situated in the heart of the city centre, adjacent to the existing Radisson Blu  Hotel. The two hotels are the only high-rise buildings in town and thus enjoy  excellent visibility. Besides 84 rooms, the Park Inn by Radisson will comprise  a lobby bar & lounge and an all-day-dining restaurant. The meeting &  event facilities will be shared with the Radisson Blu. The hotel opening is  scheduled for Q4 2016.

The Park Inn by Radisson Bruges is  Rezidor’s first property at one of Belgium’s most famous tourist destinations.  It will be located next to the central train station, some 2km away from the  historic city centre. The property will offer 111 rooms, a lobby bar, an  all-day-dining restaurant, 8 meeting rooms, a gym, and public parking. It will  welcome the first guests in Q1 2018. The Park Inn by Radisson hotels in Bruges  and Hasselt are developed by Group GL (Belgium).
