"The United Kingdom is a key mature market for us, and we are delighted to bring our core brand, Radisson Blu, to Kingston upon Hull which will be the UK's "City of Culture" in 2017", said Wolfgang M. Neumann, president and chief executive officer of Rezidor.
The Radisson Blu Hotel Kingston upon Hull will offer 168 contemporary rooms with Radisson Blu signature services such as free high speed internet access. Further services and facilities will comprise an all-day dining restaurant, a lobby bar and café, and a health club. The hotel has also been designed to meet the needs of local businesses and their visitors - it will include flexible meeting space and underground parking. The building is part of the Manor Mill mixed-use development which will also feature a 23-floor residential tower, student homes, a casino, and a plaza with restaurants and bars.
The hotel will be situated in the central business district of Hull along the shores of the River Hull. Kingston upon Hull is a strong secondary market and a major port on England's east cost - handling 13 million tons of cargo per year and more than one million ferry passengers. As the largest city in the area, Hull has established itself as an important hub for retail, commerce and manufacturing. Recent developments include "The Deep", one of the world's largest aquariums, shopping centers and the Hull & Humber World Trade Centre. Various new large scale developments have been announced, such as a large offshore wind farm and a wind turbine manufacturing plant by Siemens.
Mark Bailey, Hotel Development Director for Manor Property Group, commented: "We are delighted to be working with Rezidor in bringing a Radisson Blu to Hull - an upper upscale hotel is much needed within the city and will make a significant contribution to raising Hull's hospitality profile. The Radisson Blu completes the jigsaw for Manor's prestigious East Bank multi-use development Manor Mill, enabling work to commence shortly. The exceptional facilities which will be provided by the development are timed to be open prior to Hull's tenure as UK City of Culture 2017."
Specialist hotel architects Leach Rhodes Walker added: "The design brief required the introduction of the internationally renowned Radisson Blu hotel to the development together with its significant restaurant, bar, lounge and meeting rooms. These public accessible facilities contained over three storeys have been designed to allow full visibility and interaction with the waterside walkways, and to bring additional vibrancy to the development's central civic square. The curved facade of the hotel rises 12 storeys above the waterside offering sweeping panoramic views over the city".
