HistoryEdit

Radisson Red was launched by Carlson Rezidor in 2015 along with the brand Quorvus Collection, the first brands launched by the company since 1987.[2] Initial plans were to launch 60 Radisson Red hotels by 2020 with the first opening in Brussels, Belgium on April 18, 2016.[3]

The first Radisson Red in the United States opened in 2016 in Minneapolis, Minnesota[4] with a second U.S. location in Portland, Oregon (Radisson RED Portland Downtown; now operating as Hotel Vance, Portland, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel) in November 2018.[5] It continued its expansion with a hotel in Campinas, Brazil in August 2017, Cape Town, South Africa in September 2017, and Glasgow, United Kingdom on April 30, 2018[6]

As of 2019, the brand has twenty three hotels either in operation or under development.[7]

ConceptEdit

Radisson Red is targeted to guests with an "ageless millenial mindset", incorporating more art, music and fashion into its services and offerings with a focus on communal spaces such as the bars and lobbies, digital customer service, and bold color interiors.[8] It has its own branded restaurant, called OUIBAR,[9] and is marketed more at millennials.[10] The brand's emphasis is on modern design, technology, and quick food service.[11]
