The Rezidor Hotel Group has taken over the management of the existing Hotel Rezydent in Sopot, Poland on 1st December 2010. The property featuring 64 rooms is under common ownership with the nearby Radisson Blu Hotel, Gdansk, and will keep its former name. “We are delighted to welcome Hotel Rezydent to our family. The property which originally opened in 2001 is in a very good condition – a further renovation will even improve its services and performance”, said Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor.
Besides 64 guest rooms, Hotel Rezydent offers an all-day-dining restaurant, 1 meeting room and a small spa. It is located within walking distance of the beach: Sopot is a popular seaside resort destination and features a nice selection of Art-Nouveau buildings, many of which were built during the pre-war era when Sopot was a fashionable German resort. Today, in addition to beaches, the city includes a lovely boardwalk, numerous museums, and Europe’s longest wooden pier which stretches over 500 meters into the Baltic Sea.
Poland is one of Rezidor’s key development markets in Eastern Europe, where both of the company’s core brands Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson enjoy an excellent reputation. The group’s portfolio across the country currently comprises 8 hotels with a total of 1,594 rooms in operation and under development.
