Radisson Tops Europe

Radisson was recently named the largest upscale hotel brand in Europe, with 170 hotels and 38,079 rooms, ranking ahead of Hilton and Marriott. Ninety-nine percent of the Radissons are operated by The Rezidor Hotel Group, which Carlson owns a huge chunk in, and the latest numbers further show why Carlson is planning to bring the essence of the European Radisson (Blu) to the U.S. as part of its new Ambition 2015 plan. Heck, Rezidor must know what it's doing to have that many successful hotels there and even Carlson execs admitted the brand has not had that success in this country.
