Carlson inks Nagpur Radisson deal

Carlson Hotels has signed the Radisson Hotel Nagpur which is scheduled to open in December 2009. Managed by RHW - Bestech Management Services, the Radisson Hotel Nagpur will join the growing number of hotels in the Radisson portfolio across India.

Paul Kirwin, president, Carlson Hotels Worldwide - Asia Pacific, said, “We are delighted to offer travellers another outstanding addition to our fast expanding portfolio of hotels in India. As we are committed to future growth of India we are pleased to be expanding into Nagpur, India’s third largest city in Maharashtra after Mumbai and Pune.”

Strategically located on Wardha Road, the Radisson Hotel Nagpur is midway between the city and the burgeoning industrial belt, and is two kilometres from the airport. Geographically, Nagpur lies at the epicentre of India which makes the Nagpur railway junction the most important intersection connecting India’s four major metropolises, Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, and Kolkota. The charming city of Nagpur is also the state’s second capital, where the winter session of Maharashtra legislative assembly is held.

The 172-room hotel will offer a range of dining venues such as the lobby lounge, coffee shop and speciality restaurant, a health club and swimming pool. The large banquet hall provides an ideal location for conferences, weddings and other special events. The hotel is surrounded by a diverse choice of commercial establishments, restaurants and entertainment centres.
