Radisson Hotel Group reveals a new hotel at Gardermoen – its third at the airport and ninth in the city of Oslo.
Radisson Hotel Group has announced the signing of a new property at Oslo’s main Gardermoen airport – its third hotel at the airport and its ninth in the city of Oslo.
Located at this increasingly busy hub for international travel, Park Inn by Radisson Oslo Airport Hotel West brings the group’s portfolio in Norway to 24 hotels and more than 6,000 rooms in operation or under development.
The upper-midscale, full-service Park Inn property “will provide guests with stress-free experiences, good food and upbeat environments,” the group promises, “while acting as a convenient base for both leisure and business travellers passing through the second-busiest airport in the Nordic region”.
Due to open by the end of this year, Park Inn by Radisson Oslo Airport Hotel West will feature 233 guestrooms, a restaurant, bar, fitness room and 12 meeting and conference rooms.
To be operated by Radisson Hospitality under an international license agreement, it will be at a “prime location” three kilometres from the airport, making it “a perfect choice for international travellers”, the group maintains, and a 20-minute train ride from Oslo city centre “and attractions such as the historic Akershus Fortress, the Viking Ship Museum and boat trips across Oslofjord”.
“We’re delighted to continue our growth in Nordics – our home market – by signing Park Inn by Radisson Oslo Airport Hotel West,” says Elie Younes, Radisson Hotel Group’s executive vice president and chief development officer. “Our portfolio features 24 hotels in Norway alone and 60 across the entire Nordic region.”
Morten A Kahrs, chief executive at Norlandia Hotel Group, representing Airport Hotelldrift and the hotel’s owners, added: “We’re excited to be partnering with Radisson Hotel Group to operate the hotel under one of the group’s renowned global brands.”
