Radisson SAS opens Marseille hotel

The Rezidor Hotel Group has opened the new Radisson SAS Hotel, Marseille in the heart of the Vieux Port (Old Harbour).

The first class property features 189 rooms. It increases the total number of new Rezidor rooms opened in 2007 to 2,291. Between 2007 and 2009, Rezidor will add a further 20,000 rooms to its portfolio.

The hotel is part of Radisson’s “new breed” generation - with its modern and contemporary design reflecting a relaxed Mediterranean ambience and Marseille’s atmospheric harbour. It comprises two buildings (“Vieux Port” and “Citadelle”) with 189 rooms and suites in the distinct Provencal and African styles, with state-of-the-art technology such as flatscreen TVs and free high-speed internet access. The chic restaurant “Solaris” conveys a modern Le Corbusier spirit; the young Executive Chef Jér™me Martens serves refined Mediterranean menus inspired by Spain, Morocco, Italy and Greece. The café “Terracotta” is a cosmopolitan brasserie, and the lounge bar “Scirocco” tempts with tapas, drinks and music.

Guests at the Radisson SAS Hotel, Marseille also benefit from an outdoor pool with fabulous views, a modern gym and a solarium. For those staying in the French city for business reasons, the hotel offers 11 meeting rooms spread over 672 square metres.
