Radisson Hotel Group is looking at further expanding its collection of hotels currently in operation in Greece, starting with two new hotels in the heart of Athens. Meanwhile, the group is also negotiating the construction of a hotel in Patras, a second unit in Heraklion, Crete, and one in Thessaloniki.
Elie Younes, Global Chief Development Officer and Executive Vice President of the Radisson group, recently spoke of “more expansion opportunities in partnership with our owners and investors.”
The five hotels and resorts currently operated by Radisson Hotel Group in Greece are the Radisson Blu Park Hotel in Athens, the Radisson Blu Beach Resort in Milato, Crete, the Radisson Blu Zaffron Resort in Santorini, the Radisson Blu Euphoria Resort in Mykonos and the Radisson Resort Plaza in Skiathos.
The two new hotels will be Radisson RED Mitropoleos Square Athens, the first to operate under the Radisson RED brand in Greece, which will open by the end of the year. It was originally announced that it would operate as a short-term rental unit with serviced apartments, but will eventually serve as a regular hotel.
The group’s other new hotel, The Social Kolonaki Athens Hotel, will be located on Voukourestiou Street and is expected to open by the end of 2023, as the first brand hotel on that street. The seven-floor hotel will provide 24 spacious rooms and suites, including a presidential suite, and will also have a modern restaurant and bar on the ground floor with private dining options. The hotel’s lobby will be designed to accommodate cultural and social events.
