Radisson Hotel Group today announced the signing of the Radisson RED London Greenwich in the UK. It will be the first Radisson RED in the English capital, joining other UK Radisson RED hotels in Glasgow and Liverpool.
London is home to many of the world’s busiest concert and events venues, with Greenwich alongside the iconic O2 Arena putting guests at the heart of the action. From Elton John to Roger Federer, it boasts the biggest names in music, sport and entertainment.
Vivek Chadha, Owner of Nine Hotel Group, said: “We’re thrilled to have signed the agreement to bring a Radisson RED hotel to this side of London. Being so close to the multi-purpose O2 arena is hugely exciting, as I believe it’s the number one indoor music arena in the world and hosts the best global talent. Our hotel will be a representation of the culture and talent the arena attracts.”
Opening in 2020, the Radisson RED London Greenwich will be near so many of London’s famous sights. The O2 Arena and its iconic dome is just one of these; the hotel will put guests within easy reach of a ton of museums, the famous Prime Meridian, the legendary Cutty Sark and the cable car offering stunning views over the Thames, Canary Wharf and the City of London itself.
Alongside 70 rooms boasting the unique Radisson RED design, the hotel will offer a bistro, bar, and a gym. The new signing is part of an exciting £8bn project to redevelop Greenwich Peninsula and transform it into a must-visit destination with an array of residential, retail and office space.
