Radisson Hotels & Resorts is a leading, global hotel company that provides genuine hospitality at every point of guest contact in 435 hotels, representing more than 102,000 guest rooms in 61 countries. With headquarters in Minneapolis, Minn., Radisson Hotels & Resorts is one of the lodging brands of Carlson Hotels Worldwide, one of America's largest privately-owned hotel companies.
Radisson has grown from its home country of the United States to become a global leader in the hospitality industry by entering into management agreements, licensing and through embracing partnerships with existing hotel companies. Examples of the company's highly successful partnerships include Rezidor SAS Hospitality's development of Radisson SAS hotels and Radisson Edwardian Hotels in the United Kingdom. Radisson opened the American-managed hotel in Moscow in 1991 and today has several locations throughout Eastern Europe. Radisson's entry into the United Arab Emirates, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia in December 2002, expanded the brand's global presence to 61 countries.
Radisson hotels have achieved a global presence by expanding into new markets around the world and by focusing on total guest satisfaction, industry-leading loyalty programs and extensive customer relationship programs. In order to provide personalized comfort, Radisson hotels have elaborated Select Comfort program. Sleep Number Bed by Select Comfort is a unique air technology that allows you to adjust the level of firmness to ensure a great night's sleep. Sleep Number beds are available at a growing number of Radisson hotels.
Existing Gold Rewards program offers guests the opportunity to earn and redeem Gold Points within an exclusive network of leading brands. Members can earn Gold Points and redeem the points for free night stays, airline miles, luxury cruises, merchandise, meals, and more. Currently, Gold Points are earned at all Radisson hotels in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America. Residents of these countries can earn points at Radisson SAS and Radisson Edwardian hotels in Europe as well. Members of Radisson Gold Rewards earn 1,000 Gold Points per night, up to 10,000 points per stay.
Faced with today's new business environment, accelerated industry consolidation and changing customer expectations, the leadership of Radisson re-examined everything it does. From its franchise partners and strategic allies, to every manager and employee at every hotel, the Radisson organization is committed to providing personalized, professional guest service. Radisson hotels are named after the famous French explorer, Pierre Esprit Radisson, who visited many parts of the Upper Midwest and Canada during the 17th century. Global presence and expansion into new markets is a key part of Radisson's heritage. Radisson Hotels is a recognized and trusted brand, this trust being maintained through a consistent, quality and personalized guest service.
