Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group has announced at the Radisson and Radisson Blu Americas annual business conference, that the company will launch two new global hotel brands.
Radisson Red is a "lifestyle select" brand and Quorvus Collection is a curated collection of luxury hotels that will celebrating the culture of each location. Carlson Rezidor, whose brands include Radisson Blu, Radisson, Park Plaza, Park Inn by Radisson, and Country Inns & Suites By Carlson, aims to have more than 60 Radisson Red hotels and 20 hotels in the Quorvus Collection by 2020.
With the introduction of Radisson Red, Carlson Rezidor seeks to create a new industry category, "Lifestyle Select," an upscale, select service concept that boasts a forward-thinking focus on design and detail, the customer experience, personal interaction, personal choice and recognition of the increasingly important role that technology plays in facilitating the best of everyday life.
The Radisson Red focus on technology will include a mobile application that will not only allow guests to skip reception for check-in, but order a drink in the bar, food from the deli, flowers through an online concierge or a taxi for the airport; manage their own personal profile and preferences; and manage the environment within their Radisson Red room. The brand, with a contemporary purpose-driven design focus, will convey an eclectic, modernist aesthetic. From arriving in a gallery, to the bar and deli, to the guest connect spaces, to the guestrooms, everything will be designed from the customer's perspective. Every touch point and interaction has been considered and addressed with an extraordinary list of unique features and options.
Radisson Red will launch simultaneously in 2015 in urban centers in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.
Quorvus Collection is a new generation of expertly curated luxury, five-star hotels that offer a distinctive experience. Each is individual in style, design, heritage, history and architecture and will be reflective of its location and culture through the Quorvus "Eidos" - an essential expression of each hotel's individualism.
All Quorvus Collection hotels will offer a suite of hallmark services tailored to fit perfectly with guests' needs. Comprising six core lifestyle elements - Wellness, Replenishment, Style, Inspiration, Entertainment and Connectivity - each will be designed to fulfill the complete needs of guests.
Quorvus Collection has strong growth ambitions within the luxury segment and is expected to announce its first members in Q2 2014. Different by scale, architecture, ambiance and design, the future Quorvus portfolio will include historic landmark properties, contemporary residences, classic boutiques and urban retreats.
