Park Inn expands in Cape Town

The Park Inn by Radisson Cape Town Newlands is set to open its doors in 2014, marking the second Park Inn hotel in Cape Town  for the Rezidor hotel group, which has 10 hotels in South Africa.

“South Africa is an important cluster for our young and dynamic Park Inn by Radisson brand, and we are delighted to further strengthen our presence in the key market Cape Town,” said Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor.

Rezidor has 10 hotels and more than 1,800 rooms open or under development in South Africa. The group has two Radisson Blu hotels in Cape Town, one in operation and one under development.

The newly built Park Inn by Radisson Cape Town Newlands will be the first internationally branded hotel in Claremont / Newlands, a key upmarket business and residential node, in the affluent Southern Suburbs of Cape Town.


“The energy, excitement and colour of Park Inn by Radisson continues to build momentum,” commented Andrew McLachlan, Rezidor’s Vice President Business Development for Africa & Indian Ocean Islands.
