Carlson Rezidor, one of the most dynamic hotel groups worldwide, further strengthens its rapidly growing presence in Cape Town by announcing the Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence Cape Town. The 338-key property is the conversion of “Triangle House”, an iconic 23-storey office building in the city’s Foreshore precinct. It will be the first internationally branded hotel & residence in Cape Town and South Africa, and is scheduled to welcome the first guests in late 2016.
“We are delighted to expand and diversify our portfolio in Cape Town which now features 6 hotels with 1,150 rooms in operation and under development and covers three of our four brands: Radisson Blu, Radisson Red, and Park Inn by Radisson”, said Wolfgang M. Neumann, President & CEO of Rezidor. “Hotel residences are becoming an increasingly important offer for business and leisure travellers alike. This new property will allow us to add value for our guests and to capture additional market share”, added Neumann.
The Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence will be situated in the heart of Cape Town’s prominently located financial & law district known as the Foreshore and only 500m away from the Cape Town International Convention Centre. V&A Waterfront, Africa’s most visited tourism site, is 1km away; Table Mountain 4km.
The landmark property will comprise 214 bedrooms with Radisson Blu signature services such as free high-speed internet access, and 124 apartments including a luxury penthouse on the skyscraper’s top floor. Guests will also enjoy an all-day-dining restaurant & bar, a lobby bar café & lounge, a swimming pool bar & terrace, an executive club lounge, 8 meeting rooms with 730sqm in total, a gym, and underground parking.
