The Rezidor Hotel Group and the owners of the
Radisson Blu Hotel Fredrikstad, Lykkeberg Hotel Drift AS and
Lykkeberg Holding AS, have agreed to terminate their agreement. As
a result, the 172-room Radisson Blu Hotel Fredrikstadt is no
longer being operated by Rezidor.
“This termination does
not affect our focus on a further profitable growth in our Nordic
home markets,” stressed Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor.
In Norway, where Rezidor currently operates 23 hotels with a total
of 5,620 rooms, the group aims to concentrate development on the young
and dynamic mid market brand Park Inn.
Among the key projects
under development are the Park Inn Oslo (118 rooms, Q1 2010) and
the Park Inn Oslo Airport featuring 300 rooms and extensive
conference facilities which is scheduled to open its doors in Q3
“This hotel will also strengthen Rezidor’s position as
Europe’s leading airport hotel operator – our portfolio comprises
almost 30 airport hotels with more than 7,500 rooms,” Kurt Ritter
In December 2008, Rezidor opened the
successful Radisson Blu Resort, Trysil with 210 rooms; and in late
2011, the Radisson Blu Sørlandet Resort, Tromøya Arendal with 290
rooms will welcome the first guests.
