The ES Hotel in Rome Being Re-branded
as the Radisson SAS Rome
Brussels, November 2004 — Rezidor SAS, the Brussels-based multi-brand hospitality company, announces that it has signed a management agreement with the ES Hotel in Rome to convert and re-brand the hotel Radisson SAS.

The hotel is located in the center of Rome, within walking distance of many of the main tourist attractions and close to the Airport Express train at Termini Station. It has 235 individually-designed guest rooms and 27 suites, all with plasma screen televisions, DVD players, cable channels and high-speed Internet access.

The hotel is currently undergoing a comprehensive brand review and refurbishment project.  Once the property is in complete compliance with Radisson SAS brand standards, it will be officially re-branded the Radisson SAS Rome and integrated into the company's portfolio.  The hotel is slated to officially re-open as the Radisson SAS Rome in early 2005.

Designed by Jeremy King and Riccardo Roselli, the ES Hotel opened in 2003 to critical acclaim and has since won many awards. The hotel is known for pampering its guests and has been described as a new concept in luxury accommodations, where style, design and technology blend with outstanding service.

Kurt Ritter, president and CEO of Rezidor SAS, commented: “I am absolutely thrilled to welcome the ES Hotel to the Radisson SAS portfolio. The design, style and philosophy mirror perfectly our new breed of Radisson SAS Hotels, such as our hotels in Berlin, Paris, and Cologne. This is the future for Radisson SAS and it could not have happened in a better city. It is our first hotel in Rome and brings the brand back to Italy after a three-year absence.” 

The hotel’s rooftop restaurant, Sette, is complete with a cocktail bar and lounge. Three high-tech conference rooms can accommodate up to 500 people, and can be transformed into photography or television studios and fashion catwalks.  All conference rooms offer broadband WiFi, giant screen projectors and plasma monitors.  The hotel also has a spa, outdoor and indoor fitness areas, a rooftop pool and a 450-space underground parking garage. 

Radisson SAS Hotels & Resorts, part of Rezidor SAS Hospitality, currently operates 139 hotels in 37 countries in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, with another 30 projects under development.
