Chatsworth, Calif. | December 15, 2011 - Carlson, a global hospitality and travel company, has announced the opening of the Radisson Hotel Chatsworth, located in the west San Fernando Valley. The opening of this hotel is a significant step forward in Carlson’s Ambition 2015 strategy to expand Radisson as one of the world’s most attractive, globally consistent, first-class brands.

“We are positioning Radisson to deliver vibrant, contemporary and engaging hospitality,” said Thorsten Kirschke, president of Carlson Hotels, Americas. “These new offerings, coupled with our unique Yes I Can! service philosophy and our global hotel loyalty program Club Carlson, showcase the enhanced guest experience at Radisson.”

The hotel is rejoining the brand and beginning a USD 3 million renovation, through 2012, to all 148 guest rooms and suites, public areas such as lobby, meeting rooms, restaurant, lounge, business center, fitness room, exterior, landscape and parking.

The hotel features junior or executive suites and deluxe guest rooms with complimentary wireless high-speed Internet access. Business Class rooms include free breakfast, complimentary newspaper delivered daily, a drink credit, upgraded room amenities, turn-down service, early check-in, plus 1,000 bonus Gold Points® per night. The hotel’s restaurant and lounge, Hot Tomato, is an Italian American style restaurant open daily for breakfast lunch and dinner.

“We are thrilled to be joining Radisson during this exciting turning point in the brand’s history,” said Andy Wu, owner of Paradigm TVM Inc., owning company of the Radisson Hotel Chatsworth, Calif.

The Radisson Hotel Chatsworth offers an outdoor swimming pool and fitness center. Meeting space is available for up to 240 people. The hotel is located just minutes from the Warner Center and a variety of popular attractions including Universal Studios, Knott’s Berry Farm and Warner Bros. studio.

The Ambition 2015 strategy for Radisson entails an investment program of up to USD 1.5 billion in the North America, focused on establishing flagship hotels in key U.S. cities and on upgrading the existing portfolio.  Over USD 500 million has been committed so far to the Radisson® strategy in North America and nearly 96 percent of the existing Radisson portfolio in North America has committed to Property Improvement Plans aligned with the new global brand standards.
