Hospitality group Carlson Rezidor has announced plans to launch its new Radisson Red hotel brand with a hotel in Shenyang, China.
The 300-key Radisson Red Shenyang Hunnan is part of a twin hotel development which includes Radisson Blu Shenyang, located in the CBD of Hunnan New District, within Shenyang National High-Tech Industrial Development Zone.
The hotel is in proximity to Shenyang International Exhibition Center, the Sports Stadium and Shenyang International Airport, the largest in Northeast China.
Radisson Red Shenyang Hunnan is expected to open in 2016.
Carlson Rezidor Hotel Asia Pacific president Thorsten Kirschke said: "The signing of Radisson Red Shenyang Hunnan marks an important milestone for the Radisson Red brand, being the first in the world.
"We expect to see Radisson Red feature significantly in our portfolio growth in China, as well as across the region, as the brand has a strong relevance to the growing segment of millennial-minded travelers and a compelling value proposition for hotel owners and investors.
"Of the global target of 60 by 2020, we are confident that half of it will be in Asia Pacific. This new addition to our China portfolio further strengthens our commitment to China. We will be growing our presence in China, from 13 hotels currently in operation to 41 within the next three years."
The Carlson Rezidor portfolio includes more than 1,350 hotels in operation and under development with a footprint spanning over 105 countries and territories.
