Carlson Rezidor has acquired the Radisson Blu Le Vendome Hotel Cape Town in South Africa.
The upper upscale property featuring 143 rooms is scheduled to open within the next six months following a refit.
Formerly known as Hotel Le Vendome and a local landmark, the property is undergoing renovation and refurbishment in order to be re-positioned as one of Cape Town’s leading upper upscale addresses.
The Radisson Blu Le Vendome Hotel brings Carlson Rezidor’s strong portfolio in Cape Town to five hotels in operation and under development.
“We are proud to operate this hotel and thank the owners for their confidence in our group.
“The property will further strengthen our offer in Cape Town which shows an increasing demand for sophisticated business and leisure hotels.
“All across the African continent we now operate and develop 53 hotels, and we will grow further – the emerging market of Africa is one of our most important regions for future business development,” said Wolfgang Neumann, president, Rezidor.
Carlson Rezidor is a leading international player on the African hotel market.
In sub-Saharan Africa, the group has the largest pipeline of hotel rooms under development.
The Radisson Blu Le Vendome Hotel is located in the popular area of the Platinum Mile in the cosmopolitan and safe suburb of Sea Point, a prime position along Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard precinct.
It is only 50m away from the Sea Point Promenade and 2km away from South Africa’s number one tourist destination, The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
