Radisson, one of the best recognized hotel brands, today announced the opening of Radisson Hotel Philadelphia, following an extensive multi-million-dollar renovation showcasing the brand’s signature Scandinavian design.

With easy access to Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) and proximity to both Interstate 76 and Interstate 95, Radisson Hotel Philadelphia’s convenient location gives visitors of all kinds the perfect home base from which to explore the city’s best. 

Whether flying solo for a work meeting downtown or hoping to experience a tour of the Birthplace of America with family and friends, Radisson Hotel Philadelphia’s 212 guest rooms and suites are perfect for every traveler’s needs. The hotel’s top-to-bottom renovation includes completely remodeled rooms with stunning skyline and sports venue views and classic amenities such as flat-screen TVs with premium streaming services, free Wi-Fi, mini fridges, and more.

As part of its full-scale remodel, Radisson Hotel Philadelphia has an entirely new open-concept lobby area that houses individual check-in pods, coffee and tea facilities, a snack shop, and the Whit Lounge, the hotel’s onsite bar and restaurant serving classic American fare from morning till night. Guests also have access to a fitness center, luggage service, room service, and valet services at the hotel. Plus, the all-new meeting room is the perfect spot for corporate events of all kinds thanks to its ample space that holds up to 275 attendees and its beautiful city views. 

Radisson Hotel Philadelphia is implementing the Radisson Hotels Americas Safety Protocol to ensure guest safety and peace of mind from check-in to check-out. These in-depth cleanliness and disinfection protocols were developed in partnership with SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company.

“Philadelphia is a city full of history that attracts a mix of guests from across the U.S. and the world,” said Tom Buoy, Interim Chief Executive Officer, Radisson Hotel Group Americas. “We are excited to establish a newly renovated property in such a convenient location in South Philadelphia that is sure to keep guests occupied and immersed in the many activities the city has to offer. This opening is yet another milestone in the development of the Radisson brand in a key downtown market.”

In addition to being rich with history, Philadelphia is a city with a deep-rooted sports identity. Radisson Hotel Philadelphia is the perfect location for fans looking to experience Philly’s energy at any of its famous sports venues – the property is walking distance from Citizens Bank Park, home of the Phillies; Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Eagles; and Wells Fargo Center, where the 76ers and the Flyers play. Beyond serving as a sports hub, Radisson Hotel Philadelphia has plenty of other activities for vacationers to enjoy nearby like the newly opened Live! Casino or the Navy Yard, a bustling center teeming with business activity and retail options.

“Developing this property in partnership with Radisson Hotel Group Americas has been a challenging but rewarding process that has totally elevated the quality of service we’re able to deliver to our guests,” said the owners of Watermark Hospitality. “We’re thrilled to reintroduce ourselves to the Philadelphia community and welcome guests new and old to experience the comfort and hospitality synonymous with the Radisson brand.”
