The 400-room hotel will be located on the cross-roads of Sergio Osmena Boulevard and San Jose de Montana Boulevard in the city more popularly known as the “Queen City of the South” for its rich cultural and historical heritage. Radisson Hotel Cebu will be close to the Central Business District and New City Centre. The Cebu seaport, one of the country’s busiest ports, is less than 20 kilometres from the airport.
