Radisson Signs With Astri Group to Debut Radisson RED Tallinn in Estonia

Belgium, Brussels. October 29, 2019

Radisson Hotel Group, one of the largest and most dynamic hotel groups in the world, is pleased to announce the signing of another Radisson RED property in Europe - continuing the brand's global expansion. Due to open in late 2023, the Radisson RED Tallinn (Estonia) will arrive in the heart of the country's lively capital as the group's third hotel brand - alongside Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson.

The Estonian capital is a destination that's rapidly growing in popularity. Last year, 4.65m international visitors traveled to Tallinn, taking the opportunity to experience the many creative and cultural areas of the city.

Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: "We are excited to have signed our fifth property in the city and, with this agreement, introduced Radisson RED across all three Baltic capitals. The new Radisson RED will be located within the Telliskivi district, which is known as the lifestyle area of the city - a perfect match for Radisson RED."

Anne Aland, Head of Astri Group, commented: "The Astri Group aspires to create multi-functional spaces that serve the needs of a broad target group, and Balti Station Market is a great example of how trade and leisure can be combined. We are honored to have an agreement to develop the first Radisson RED in Estonia within the immediate vicinity of the Baltic Station Market. Radisson RED is a unique, innovative and exciting hotel brand - a concept that blends perfectly with the Telliskivi area. We believe that the addition of the hotel to the area will support an increase in the number of visitors and will play an important role in creating a vibrant environment for the various start-ups with offices in the Telliskivi area."

The new-build, 150-room Radisson RED Tallinn will be part of a mixed-use scheme - with the building also featuring co-working and office space. The hotel itself will offer the ‘all day dining' Oui Bar & Ktchn that Radisson RED is known for, along with a destination Sky Bar, meeting rooms and a fitness area.

The Telliskivi district is a warehouse district that borders the Old Town and is home to the Balti Jaama Turg market. It is also the creative center of the city, featuring an array of art studios, bars and restaurants, fashion stores, galleries and IT start-ups.

The Old Town - home to some of Europe's best-preserved Medieval buildings - is only 0.5km away, just a five-minute walk from the hotel, while the Rotermann Quarter (with its renovated buildings showcasing the future of the city) is 1.5km away. The hotel will be easily accessible to international travelers, just 6.5km from Tallinn Airport, with the main railway station across the road making it easy for guests to get around by train.

The Radisson RED Tallinn will be operated by Radisson Hotel Group under an International Management Agreement.

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
