Carlson, a privately held, global hospitality and travel company, today announced the further expansion of the Radisson brand in Chile. The opening of the Radisson Petra La Dehesa Hotel in Santiago marks the brand’s expansion in the country as part of its Ambition 2015 growth strategy.
Carlson announced its Ambition 2015 growth strategy earlier this year. The strategy is fueled by an investment program of up to $1.5 billion focused on positioning Radisson as a powerful, globally consistent first-class brand.
“Radisson currently operates six hotels in the country with another one in development,” said Thorsten Kirschke, president of Carlson Hotels, Americas, in a written statement. “The addition of a third Radisson hotel in Santiago represents a continued momentum in our Ambition 2015 growth strategy and is aligned with plans to expand Radisson as a vibrant, contemporary and globally consistent brand in key cities, resorts and airports.”
The 105-room Radisson Petra La Dehesa, which officially opened its doors in October, is located in Northern Santiago, the most upscale residential area of the city and features an avant-garde design and includes a spa, an indoor and outdoor pool, fitness center and 3,600 square feet of meeting and banquet space. The hotel’s full service restaurant ZAFRAN, offers Mediterranean and international cuisines.
