Radisson Blu, the iconic hotel brand driven by innovation and design, is delighted to announce its latest addition in Ordu, Turkey.
Located on the Black Sea and surrounded by some of the most beautiful beaches, rivers and mountains on the coast, the hotel has opened its doors to guests on 29 June 2016.
The upper-upscale property is a semi-conversion and brings Rezidor Hotel Group’s portfolio in Turkey up to 23 hotels, with more than 4,000 rooms in operation or under development.
Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Elie Younes, said: “We are delighted to arrive in Ordu and to add another major city in Turkey to our network. This will further increase brand awareness for Radisson Blu which is already the largest upper-upscale brand in Istanbul and in Europe.”
“Hotel conversions support our accelerated growth strategy in our focus markets since they join the portfolio relatively quickly and generate immediate revenues.”
The Radisson Blu Hotel, Ordu is situated on a hilltop with panoramic views over sea and city. The city center and beaches are just 15 minutes away and easily reachable by car or aerial lift, which is adjacent to the site.
Besides the 129 guest rooms, the hotel offers a restaurant and bar, a 1,000sqm ballroom, meeting rooms and pre-function area, spa, pool, gym, hair dresser, and parking bays.
Ordu is not only an attractive holiday destination for domestic and regional travelers, but also an important industrial hub: the city is the largest hazelnut producer in the world, accounting for 70% of global production. So the hotel is designed to cater for both leisure and business guests.
