A second Riyadh hotel for the Radisson Collection is amplifying the luxury chain’s presence in Saudi Arabia.
Mansard Riyadh, A Radisson Collection Hotel is named after its distinct Mansard roofline, designed as an homage to the signature Parisian Haussmann style of the mid 1800s, and evokes images of the grand buildings which line the fashionable boulevards of Paris.
Located in the northern neighbourhood of Ar Rabi, the hotel offers 191 beautifully designed rooms, serviced apartments and duplex villas designed with subtle colour hints of blue and beige which weave through the hotel’s interiors, creating a calming and timeless atmosphere for guests.
The architect of the newly built property is Remaizan S. Al Remaizan Architectural Consultants and it was designed by Hirsch Bedner Associates Dubai (HBA).
Corridors are lined with contemporary works by local artist Mishal Saad Alzaid. The striking millwork of the guestroom doors set the scene for the rooms’ modern design featuring contemporary furniture with rich upholstery.
High end accommodation
The understated yet luxurious three-bedroom penthouse suite has been stylishly designed with contemporary details, hardwood floors, and elegant fabrics. The penthouse suite consists of a master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, three spacious bedrooms, a living area, kitchen, and dining room which seats up to eight guests. Guests can relax in the suite’s whirlpool tub surrounded by marble floors, Italian finishes, and double vanities.
The two-floor duplex villas boast up to 230 sq m with fully equipped kitchen, living room, powder room, and dining room with a table for six. On the second floor are three spacious and sophisticated bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. The names of the villas reference the grand squares of Paris, such as Vendôme, Concorde, and Opéra.
Luxury footprint expansion
Tim Cordon, area senior vice president, Middle East, and Africa at Radisson Hotel Group, said: “We are absolutely delighted to open our second Radisson Collection hotel in Riyadh, joining Nofa Resort, A Radisson Collection Hotel, as we continue to grow our luxury lifestyle footprint in the Saudi Arabian market with exceptional hotels and unique hotel experiences across leisure, dining, fitness, wellness and sustainability. We believe Mansard Riyadh, A Radisson Collection Hotel will become one of the leading hotels in Saudi Arabia with its one-of-a-kind spaces where premium lifestyle meets remarkable sophistication.”
The hotel’s facilities include six meeting rooms overlooking the hotel’s outdoor plaza with natural daylight and the latest state of the art technology. Opening later this year in collaboration with New York City-based restaurant group Major Food Group, will be Carbone, one of the group’s flagship Michelin-starred restaurants that celebrates the retro charm of the Italian American dining experience, and Sadelle’s, a perennial brunch-time favourite hailing from the heart of the SoHo neighbourhood in New York.
The site’s general manager, Firas Mneimneh, commented: “As the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia continues to welcome more international travellers, I am thrilled to be able to showcase this exquisite hotel to the world. My passionate team and I look forward to welcoming our guests to enjoy the exceptional, where memorable moments are guaranteed.”
