Rezidor is set to open its fourth Radisson Blu hotel in Dubai in early 2011, the Belgian hotel group announced on Monday.
The new hotel will be Rezidor’s fourth Radisson Blu branded hotel in the emirate, following in the footsteps of its hotels in Deira Creek, Dubai Marina and Dubai Media City.
“Despite the slowdown, Dubai continues to have the highest RevPAR worldwide and is an interesting market for Rezidor – and one of our focus areas in the Middle East,” said Kurt Ritter, president and CEO of Rezidor.
Rezidor currently operates 25 hotels, with a total of 6,585 rooms, in the Middle East and has a further sixteen properties in the pipeline.
