The Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the fastest growing hotel companies worldwide, announces the Radisson Blu Hotel, Athens: The existing Athens Park Hotel will be rebranded as Radisson Blu Park Hotel Athens on December 15, 2011. The property featuring 152 rooms is Rezidor’s very first hotel in Greece – the company is now present in 65 countries across Europe, Middle East and Africa.

“Despite the recent crisis and still challenging times in Greece, hotels in the capital city Athens perform well. We are glad to arrive in Athens and to further strengthen our development in South East Europe”, said Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor.

The future Radisson Blu hotel was fully renovated in 2009/2010, including most guestrooms and all public areas. Further renovations are also planned for 2012. Today, the property comprises 152 guest rooms, Gallo Nero restaurant, The Oak Room bar, St’Astra rooftop restaurant, and two conference rooms. It also features a rooftop swimming pool with stunning views across Athens and its famous Acropolis.

The location of the hotel is in the northern part of the city centre, on Alexandras Avenue, which is one of the city’s main avenues and offers excellent access to the airport and surrounding area. The hotel is situated opposite “Pedion Areos”, the Athens largest park, and next to the National Archaeological Museum. The immediate neighborhood was redeveloped for the 2004 Olympics and is home to many offices and embassies. Athens’ old centre, the Acropolis, numerous museums and Kolonaki Square are all within walking distance.

The owner’s statement
Park Hotel is a leading deluxe hotel in Athens, operating for the last 35 years. The hotel has been through a major renovation during 2010 and is inspired by an urban nature concept with modern and innovative design throughout its premises.
By joining the Radisson Blu family we look forward to a fruitful cooperation and future business development worldwide.
