Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group has signed for the first four Radisson RED hotels in the Americas, as part of the company’s goal to open 60 Radisson RED hotels globally by 2020.
The new hotels include Radisson RED Bogota and Radisson RED Cali in Colombia, Radisson RED Campinas, Brazil, and the Radisson RED Minneapolis Downtown.
Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group Americas chief operating officer Javier Rosenberg said: "RED has already garnered strong interest and development momentum in Asia Pacific and in Europe, so we are very excited to announce our first hotels in the Americas.
"For us, we see opportunity for Radisson RED in a segment we have termed ‘lifestyle select’ that strives to create a uniquely engaging, personalised guest experience."
The group is also constructing new properties in Brussels (Belgium), Capetown (South Africa), Glasgow (UK) and Shenyang Hunnan (China).
The Radisson RED hotel features a gallery that incorporates locally inspired art and an event studio for meetings and gatherings, in addition to complimentary internet access.
Food and beverage outlets in the hotel include Ouibar and the 24-hour REDeli.
Radisson RED Bogota is located in the Virrey Park area, while the 91-room Radisson RED Cali is situated in close proximity to Cali Zoo.
Both hotels are scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2016.
The 185-room Radisson RED Campinas is centrally located in the Cambuí neighbourhood and offers guests options of several restaurants, bars and stores. The new hotel will be managed by Atlantica Hotels International.
Radisson RED Minneapolis Downtown features 164 rooms and will be owned and managed by Carlson Rezidor. The hotel is scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of next year.
Carlson recently signed a management contract with Fund Trust Joint Venture to develop Park Inn by Radisson Fiji Suva. The new property marks the second Carlson Rezidor hotel in Fiji, following Radisson Blu Resort Fiji Denarau Island.
