The 70-room property from the ‘upscale, lifestyle select-service’ brand will be located in Greenwich, within walking distance of the O2 Arena and five miles from London City Airport.
It is part of an £8billion project to redevelop the Greenwich Peninsula and will also feature a bistro, bar and gym.
“Radisson Red is for those who wish to stand out of the crowd and it now lands in London. Opening in 2020, it perfectly blends business and play around the O2,” says Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group.
Vivek Chadha, Owner of developer Nine Hotel Group, says: “Our hotel will be a representation of the culture and talent the arena attracts.”
Vijay Thakkar, Co-owner of the hotel, adds: “We’re excited to ink the deal with Radisson Hotel Group to bring a Radisson RED property to London. The hotel shall attract both business and leisure travellers, and I am eagerly looking forward to its grand opening.”
