The Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the fastest growing hotel companies worldwide, announces the Radisson Blu Sortland in Norway.
The new built resort- & conference hotel featuring 168 guest rooms is scheduled to open in 2013. Sortland, a small city in Northern Norway between Tromsø and Bodø, is a beautiful destination for activities such as hiking, cycling, boating, whale watching and fishing in the summer and dog sledding and views of the Northern Lights during winter. It is also a stop on the popular Hurtigruten cruises.
The Radisson Blu Sortland will be located at a waterfront site in the city centre. Besides 168 rooms the property will offer an all-day-dining restaurant with outdoor seating, a lobby bar, 300 square meters of meeting space, and a 1,500 square meters leisure area including 2 pools, 2 jacuzzis, 5 treatment rooms, saunas, and a climbing wall. In the adjacent Cultural Centre guests will find additional facilities for meetings and events on 900 square meters.
The Rezidor Hotel Group is one of the most important international hotel operators in Norway – the company’s portfolio in the country currently comprises 30 hotels in operation and under development with a total of 6,800 rooms. Rezidor is specialized in city hotels such as their flagship Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Oslo, but also grows the airport hotel- and resort portfolio: In Norway, the group recently opened the Park Inn Oslo Airport and already offers resorts in Beitostølen and Trysil.
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.
