The Rezidor Hotel Group has announced their 9th hotel in Poland and 2nd hotel in Warsaw: The Radisson Blu Sobieski Hotel.
The property will feature 435 rooms and is scheduled to be re-branded in quarter three 2011.
The property – presently known as Jan III Sobieski Hotel - was designed and built in 1992 by an Austrian-Polish team, and was named after one of Europe’s greatest monarchs.
The hotel has recently been acquired by Wenaasgruppen – the new owner will continue the extensive, ongoing renovation programme, and the hotel will be completely re-vitalised in the coming years.
“With now 17 properties, Wenaasgruppen is the largest single owner of Rezidor hotels,” said Rezidor president Kurt Ritter.
“We are thankful and delighted to further strengthen our trustful co-operation and also look forward to further developing our portfolio in Poland – a country clearly on the move.”
Upon completion of the renovation in 2015, the Radisson Blu Sobieski Hotel will comprise 467 guest rooms with Radisson Blu signature services such as free high speed internet access, and will offer two restaurants, a lounge, a wellness area with Jacuzzis, sauna and gym, one of the largest conference centres in Warsaw (1,400 square metres), and some retail outlets.
The location of the hotel, in the southern part of Warsaw’s central business district, is a perfect complement to Rezidor’s existing Radisson Blu in Warsaw, which is roughly four kilometres north.
Warsaw’s Fryderyk Chopin Airport is seven kilometres away, and the city’s main railway station one kilometre.
With a prominent, corner location on a major thoroughfare, the building enjoys excellent visibility and is already a local landmark.
Radisson Blu is one of Rezidor’s core brands and the largest upper upscale brand in Europe.
It features contemporary architecture and design, innovative service concepts, and the service philosophy “Yes I Can!” with a highly individual and engaged approach.
