Tuesday 6, July 2010
The Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the fastest growing hotel companies worldwide, announces the Radisson Blu Hotel & Conference Centre Salzburg, Austria.
The former Renaissance Salzburg Congress Center featuring 257 rooms will be re-branded in Q3 2010 and complement Rezidor’s 62-room Radisson Blu Hotel Altstadt, Salzburg. “We are delighted to strengthen our presence in Salzburg and to also extend our cooperation with our franchise partner Grand City Hotels & Resorts which will operate this new hotel”, comments Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor. “This further Radisson Blu Hotel under the management of Grand City Hotels & Resorts also marks our arrival on the Austrian market where we see further potential”, adds Sven Doliwa, Vice President Commercial of Grand City Hotels & Resorts.
Salzburg is the fourth largest city in Austria, one of central Europe’s most enchanting tourist destinations and the birthplace of the composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Today, his birthplace and family residence are must-see tourist attractions. The baroque old town is a wonderfully preserved UNESCO site and within walking distance from the hotel. Besides 257 guest rooms (including 11 spacious suites) the Radisson Blu Hotel & Conference Centre, Salzburg will offer 2 restaurants and 1 bar, and 1,750m2 of conference & meeting space - including a sub-dividable ballroom and a variety of meeting rooms to suit every need. For those wanting to relax after a hectic day of meetings or site seeing, the hotel will comprise an indoor pool, health club, sauna and hair salon.
Rezidor has nine properties in operation or under development in Austria, including four Radisson Blu hotels.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
