    The Rezidor Hotel Group has opened its 101st Park Inn hotel and the 27th Park Inn in the UK – the 185-room Park Inn Aberdeen. Additional facilities at the new-build hotel include eight meeting rooms, a fitness room and a signature RBG restaurant. The hotel also offers complimentary wireless internet access throughout, to both residents and non-residents alike.Located in the centre of the ‘Granite City’ on Justice Mill Lane, which runs parallel to the city’s main thoroughfare of Union Street, the new Park Inn by Radisson hotel brings welcome additional room stock and facilities to the thriving business city on Scotland’s northeastern coast.

    The six storey hotel has 185 fresh and contemporary guest rooms, including Business Friendly rooms, accessible rooms for disabled guests and interconnecting rooms for families. The rooms are designed to be functional and easy to use and all offer laptop-size safes, air conditioning and flat-screen TVs showing multiple channels. The room décor reflects the Park Inn brand with vibrant touches of colour. Many of the guest rooms offer fantastic views over the city and North Sea.

    The hotel’s ground floor is home to the business and meeting facilities. There are a total of eight meeting rooms, including five boardrooms with natural daylight. The ballroom is divisible by three and will accommodate up to 200 delegates theatre style and 160 guests for a dinner. The ceiling height in the ballroom is an impressive five metres, giving a very capacious feel and making it viable to hold product launches and other such events within the space.

    Also on the ground floor is RBG, the new restaurant concept recently launched for the Park Inn brand and already open in Park Inn hotels including Manchester, Belfast and Cardiff. RBG tempts guests with gourmet burgers, light bites and a choice of signature dishes from the grill. The adjoining bar is perfect for a coffee whilst catching up with emails during the day or for enjoying a beer or cocktail in the evening.

    A galaxy of A-list stars also grace the opening of the hotel – on canvas if not in person. Local artist Bob Harper has spent the last year producing a unique collection of celebrity paintings for the hotel. One-off portraits of Sir Paul McCartney, Elvis Presley, Rod Stewart and Aberdeen-born Annie Lennox, amongst others, are given pride of place throughout the public areas of the hotel.
