Greece is the word for Rezidor

The rapidly growing Rezidor Hotel Group has announced the launch of the Radisson Blu Hotel, Athens. The existing Athens Park Hotel will be rebranded as Radisson Blu Park Hotel Athens by mid December 2011. The 152 room property is Rezidor's first hotel in Greece. Rezidor now has a presence 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 are still performing well. We are glad to arrive in the country and that we are able to further strengthen the development of our core, upper upscale brand Radisson Blu in South East Europe," said Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor.

"Our hotel is a leading deluxe property in Athens, operating for 35 years. The unique, modern and innovative design is inspired by an urban nature concept. We look forward to joining the Radisson Blu family and to starting a fruitful international cooperation," commented Vassilis & Mary Deverikos, owners of the hotel.

The future Radisson Blu hotel was fully renovated in 2009/2010. Further renovations are also planned for 2012. Currently, 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", Athens' largest park, and next to the National Archaeological Museum. The immediate neighbourhood 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.
