Rezidor announces the Radisson Blu Hotel, East Midlands Airport in the United Kingdom
The Rezidor Hotel Group, one the fastest growing hotel companies worldwide, announces the Radisson Blu Hotel, East Midlands Airport in the UK. The new build property featuring 216 guest rooms is scheduled to open its doors in Q1 2012.
Bahram Sadr-Hashemi from Azure Property Group, one of Europe’s leading hotel investment firms and franchisee of the new hotel, adds: “We are excited about working with Rezidor in creating what will be the premier hotel in the area and will offer superior conference facilities. The hotel will have a unique identity and offer its customers a new experience. Radisson Blu has proven to be an exceptional strong brand in airport locations and we remain confident that it will be no exception here.”
The Radisson Blu Hotel, East Midlands Airport will benefit from a prime location with excellent visibility – 800 meters away from the main terminal and along the M1, the country’s busiest motorway. Besides 208 rooms and 8 suites, all offering Radisson signature services such as free high speed internet access, the property will offer 1 restaurant, 1 bar/lounge, and 1 coffee shop. 750 square meters of conference- and event-space will well-position the hotel on the MICE-market, and leisure facilities will comprise an extensive fitness centre with a gym and indoor pool. The hotel design will also incorporate innovative carbon friendly initiatives to significantly reduce the building’s CO2 emissions and in the process, pass on significant cost savings to the operator.
East Midlands Airport is among the 10 largest airports in the UK (nearly 6 million annual passengers). This main generator of business traffic within central UK also acts as a hub for several low fare airlines including BMIbaby and Ryanair. Additional demand for the hotel will be generated from the business parks in the surrounding area and the nearby cities of Leicester, Derby and Nottingham.
Rezidor is known for a modern approach towards airport hotels – managing outstanding properties with contemporary architecture & design and unique service concepts which include a “Grab & Run” breakfast for early birds, 3-hours express laundry and Business Class-rooms with complimentary Nespresso-machine, bathrobe & -slippers, and daily newspaper.
