Dual-brand Radisson hotel lands at Oslo Airport
The first Radisson RED and Radisson Hotel & Conference Centre in Norway have opened as a dual-branded property at Oslo Airport.
This dual-brand development is now the largest hotel at the airport with more than 500 rooms across the two branded properties as well as a conference centre.
Brand entry to Norway
Each offering a different hospitality experience, the dual-branded property’s Radisson RED hotel provides the brand’s playful take on a conventional stay while the Radisson Hotel stands out for its Scandinavian design and thoughtful detail.
Synergy is created between these two distinct hotels featuring refurbished rooms with shared public spaces offering an array of services and airport runway views. The property has its own pathway to the airport terminal and is close to the airport express train transporting passengers into Oslo city centre in less than 20 minutes.
”We are proud to present Radisson RED Oslo Airport and Radisson Hotel & Conference Centre Oslo Airport, introducing both brands to Norway for the first time at such a significant location,” said Tom Flanagan Karttunen, area senior vice president for Radisson Hotel Group in Northern and Western Europe.
“This marks the second Radisson RED and Radisson dual-branded property in Northern and Western Europe following the successful opening of Radisson RED London Heathrow and Radisson Hotel & Conference Centre London Heathrow.”
“With this new opening, we are pleased to offer 1,250 guest rooms spread over four different brands at Oslo Airport with 500 guest rooms and Radisson Blu Airport Hotel, Oslo Gardermoen, 233 rooms at Park Inn by Radisson Oslo Airport Hotel West and the new hotel with a total of 514 guest rooms.”
Two distinct experiences
The 214-key Radisson RED Oslo Airport is set apart by its bold, vibrant interiors, guest rooms featuring luxe touches, on-demand services and lounge area for both work and play. The 300-room Radisson Hotel & Conference Centre Oslo Airport is then distinguished by its soft, neutral tones and natural materials inspired by Scandinavian style.
Between the two hotels, shared public areas include the lively restaurant and bar GAMO, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with dishes inspired by Norwegian culture and highlighting local Norwegian produce.
To elevate its design focus, Radisson RED Oslo Airport has partnered with Norway’s Kistefos Art Museum to forge a connection between the local art scene and guest experience.
Ideal for business travellers, Radisson Hotel & Conference Centre Oslo Airport is then home to 52 well-equipped flexible meeting rooms including boardrooms with state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment and a 236-sq-m ballroom with 480 sq m of pre-function space.
Jörgen Ljunggren, general manager of Radisson RED Oslo Airport and Radisson Hotel & Conference Centre Oslo Airport commented: “Radisson RED and Radisson are designed to fit the needs of our guests by giving them endless opportunities to tune in and out, switching effortlessly between business and pleasure.”
“Across public areas, guests are treated to a dual experience of both brands and can get the most out of their stay by enjoying signature features such as the Radisson-branded meeting suites, as well as the vibrant lobby with its RED-style urban interior and art.”
