London, November 2003... Rezidor SAS, the Brussels-based multi-brand hospitality company, is proud to announce that they have signed a management agreement for their first ĎRegentí hotel in Europe: The Regent Esplanade Hotel in Zagreb, Croatia.
Currently in its final stage of complete renovation, The Regent Esplanade Hotel, formerly the Esplanade Hotel, is a landmark building that offers modern comforts, while retaining the charm of its original 1925 Art Nouveau architecture.  The hotel is expected to open in January 2004.

The hotel has 207 individually-designed guest rooms, a contemporary grand restaurant, a classic cocktail bar and a simple but elegant French bistro,

complete with a glazed conservatory and outdoor terrace extending on to one of Zagrebís elegant piazzas.  A grand ballroom, well-equipped conference rooms, business facilities and parking complete the hotelís list of facilities.

Kurt Ritter, president and CEO of Rezidor SAS Hospitality, comments:  ďI am absolutely thrilled to have signed our first Regent hotel.  Itís the addition of another flagship property to our portfolio and it also takes us into Croatia for the very first time. In its heyday the Esplanade Hotel in Zagreb was the epitome of style and elegance in the city, as well as being the luxury stopover for the passengers of The Orient Express.  Through the Regent brand, we fully intend to uphold all of these traditions and values but in a way thatís relevant now to a modern and forward-thinking city like Zagreb.  I am convinced that securing The Regent Esplanade Hotel in Zagreb will also now help us to secure more Regent hotels throughout Europe and the Middle East.Ē 

The hotel is conveniently located in the city center, a five-minute walk from the main business and shopping area.  International rail links are within easy access and Zagreb Airport is only 10 miles from the hotel. 

Regent International Hotels are operated by Rezidor SAS in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, as part of a multi-brand master franchise agreement with Carlson Hotels Worldwide. Regent hotels are traditional five-star hotels, offering unashamed luxury, in spectacular locations throughout the world.  There are now thirteen Regent hotels in operation or under development throughout the world, including The Regent Wall Street in New York and The Regent Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills.
