Radisson Hotel Zurich Airport Opens Following Renovation and Rebranding

Belgium, Brussels. May 21, 2019

Radisson Hospitality AB, part of the Radisson Hotel Group, is pleased to announce the opening of the Radisson Hotel Zurich Airport following a comprehensive reconstruction and rebranding. Arriving in Switzerland's largest city, the hotel will be the second Radisson-branded property to open in Europe - and the first in the German-speaking region - when it opens on 15 May 2019.

As part of a repositioning and rebranding strategy, the former Park Inn by Radisson Zürich Airport in Rümlang has reopened under the Radisson brand. This is all part of the group's plan to introduce the sophisticated upscale full-service hotel brand to the Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) region.

Yilmaz Yildirimlar, Area Senior Vice President Central & Southern Europe for Radisson Hotel Group, said: "We are extremely proud to welcome guests to the first Radisson hotel in Switzerland. The transformation around the Zürich Airport is significant, and the rebranding of the hotel represents a key step for the further development of the property in line with the Radisson Hotel Group brand strategy."

The Radisson Hotel Zurich Airport has undergone extensive renovation work to prepare it for reopening. All 211 guestrooms have been completely refurbished, along with the communal areas of hotel - creating a fresh new look that will appeal to both business and leisure travelers.

Meeting and conference attendees will also receive the warmest of welcomes at the new hotel. Its modern meeting infrastructure includes 10 conference rooms with natural daylight, state-of-the-art video and audio technologies as well as complimentary wireless internet.

The location in Rümlang offers minimum commuting distances for guests: travel to Zürich Airport in the hotel shuttle takes just seven minutes, while 20 minutes on the city train brings visitors to Zürich's main downtown street, Bahnhofstrasse. The hotel's proximity to the airport also complements the Radisson Blu Hotel, Zurich Airport, which is located directly in the airport terminal.

A key strategic step for Radisson Hotel Group In addition to the reopening of the Radisson Hotel Zurich Airport, Radisson Hotel Group has identified several other projects that will be part of its repositioning and rebranding strategy by 2022. The group has invested more than €60m in the Central & Southern Europe region to drive this plan.

Following an extensive makeover of the hotels in Frankfurt and Cologne, the Radisson Blu hotels in Basel and Milan - as well as the Radisson Blu Schwarzer Bock Hotel, Wiesbaden - are currently undergoing renovation and redesign. The strategy also includes new properties such as the Radisson Blu Hotel, Geneva. Ideally located between Geneva Airport and the city center, the hotel will boast 250 rooms and a comprehensive MICE package - with its opening date planned for 2022.

Hotel Spa: Pursuing Distinction

The Wellness Movement continues to evolve and hotel spas continue to innovate in order to keep pace. Fueled by intense competition within the industry, hotel spas are seeking creative ways to differentiate themselves in the market. An increasing number of customers are searching for very specific, niche treatments that address their particular health concerns and, as a result, some leading spas have achieved distinction by offering only one specialized treatment. Meditation and mindfulness practices are becoming increasingly mainstream as are alternative treatments and therapies, such as Ayurvedic therapies, Reiki, energy work and salt therapy. Some spas specialize in stress management and offer lifestyle coaching sessions as part of their program. Other spas are fully embracing new technologies as a way to differentiate themselves, such as providing wearable devices that track health and fitness biomarkers, or robots programmed with artificial intelligence to control spa environments, or virtual reality add-ons that transport guests to relaxing places around the world. Some spas have chosen to specialize in medical procedures such as liposuction, laser skin therapy, phototherapy facials, Botox and facial fillers, acupuncture and permanent hair removal, in addition to cosmetic body shaping procedures and teeth whitening treatments. Similarly, other spas are offering comprehensive health check-ups and counseling services for those who are interested in disease prevention treatments. Finally, as hotel spas continue to become more diverse, accessible and specialized, there is a growing demand for health professionals with a specific area of expertise. There is a proliferation of top class, quality wellness practitioners who make a name for themselves by offering their services around the globe, including athletes, chefs, doctors, physical trainers and weight loss specialists. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
