This will be the fourth Radisson Blu to arrive in Italy, with the new hotel being part of a long-term plan to strengthen the brand’s presence in the country.
Rome is Italy’s most important tourist destination, while its airport was recently awarded Best Airport 2018 in the ‘over 25 million passengers’ category by ACI Europe – as well as being recognised as the world’s most improved airport and the airport with the best quality of services by Skytrax.
Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “Rome Airport has transformed itself and recently took pole position in Europe in terms of customer service and experience.
Italy is now a key focus market for our organic growth and will soon see a wider range of Radisson Hotel Group properties arriving in key cities and destinations. This is a journey that we’re sure will excite all of our stakeholders!”
The hotel will be linked to the terminal and will feature an all-day restaurant, lobby bar, gym and a ballroom and foyer.
THPT Comment: With just 4 Radisson Blu and few other of their brands in Italy, Radisson have a way to go…good start here with Rome Fiumcino.
