The newly-rebranded Radisson Hotel Group (RHG) has unveiled the Radisson Collection, a new brand that will replace the fledgling Quorvus Collection.
Launched at the International Hotel Investment Forum in Berlin this week (Mar 5) and set to be full-launched in June, Radisson Collection is what RHG says is “a premium collection of exceptional hotels in landmark locations… Driven by consumer demand for individuality and more personalised experiences, Radisson Collection brings together the finest hotels in the Radisson Hotel Group portfolio”.
RHG has revealed that 14 hotels are confirmed to join the collection following the launch.
“72% of travellers prefer to spend their money on experiences rather than material things and the Radisson Collection caters to this demand,” said Federico J. Gonzalez, President and CEO, the Rezidor Hotel Group and Chairman of the Global Steering Committee, Radisson Hotel Group.
“The hotels that have already joined the Radisson Collection are the perfect showcase for what the brand represents: authenticity, design and exceptional service.
“Ultimately, the brand and the hotels will be defined by the people who visit them and those who serve in them.
“We are incredibly proud of our global debut and look forward to the continued growth of our exceptional collection globally,” he said.
Gonzalez said each hotel feels authentic to its location and offers the ultimate model for contemporary living.
He said Radisson Collection hotels are united by exceptional design and experiences across dining, fitness, wellness and sustainability. All hotel properties are situated in prestigious locations, close to prime leisure attractions and boast an individual and locally authentic atmosphere.
The company says the Radisson Collection will benefit from the power of the Radisson Hotel Group with a strategic market positioning and scale of a global brand.
“The collection will give hotel owners an opportunity to join an international network while maintaining the identity and authenticity of their hotels and resorts through a flexible framework for affiliation and endorsement,” RHG says.
“The member hotels wanting to build market recognition can choose to lead with the brand or lead with their hotel identity. The collection affiliation provides member hotels with international brand services, operational expertise, infrastructure and loyalty program, designed to optimize the owner’s return on investment.”
