The Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the fastest growing hotel companies worldwide, announces the Radisson Blu Hotel, Istanbul Şişli. The new built 305-room property is scheduled to welcome the first guests in Q3 2012.“This business & leisure hotel is our 4th property in operation and under development in greater Istanbul and brings our total number of rooms to almost 1,000. This clearly underlines how strategically important the Istanbul market is for our company”, said Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor. Rezidor already operates the Radisson Blu Bosphorus Hotel in the city centre and the Radisson Blu Conference & Airport Hotel near Istanbul, and has the Radisson Blu Hotel, Istanbul Asia under development.
