Radisson RED's vibrant energy spreads across the UK

The upper-upscale hotel brand Radisson RED, which presents a playful twist on the conventional, has expanded rapidly in the UK.

The brand, which incorporates art, music, and fashion into its service to offer an unforgettable stay for all guests, is present at London airports as well as in city centre locations such as Liverpool and Glasgow. Recently, Radisson Hotel Group announced the signing of Radisson RED Huddersfield and Radisson RED Edinburgh Airport, set to open in 2025 and 2026 respectively. The former will undergo an extensive restoration and refurbishment of the historic George Hotel, originally built in 1851, while the latter will be a new build property.

The latest UK opening for the brand is Radisson RED Liverpool. Located in a thoughtfully-renovated Grade II-listed property, an original British railway hotel in the late 1800s, Radisson RED Liverpool blends history, legacy, and eclectic design. The hotel is also a culinary destination thanks to its modern barbecue and robata grill restaurant, Stoke.

The Radisson RED brand launched in the UK five years ago and continues its impressive expansion across the UK and globally. The first Radisson RED property to open in the UK was the award-winning Radisson RED Glasgow, combining urban style, modern comforts and a love for the arts with a warm welcome. The hotel is adjacent to the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) and its RED Sky Bar has won several awards, ranked among the top 50 best rooftop bars in the world*.

Elsewhere, Radisson RED London Heathrow is perfectly situated for those travelling through Heathrow Airport and features 258 bedrooms. The hotel offers a large conference and events space flexible to suit a wide variety of group sizes and requirements. To kick-start or wrap up a long day of travelling or meetings, guests can visit the Pace Leisure Club, featuring a gym, swimming pool, sauna and steam room.

New stunning Radisson RED properties on the way

Radisson RED Huddersfield will take over a Grade II-listed building and accommodate 91 spacious rooms. Famous for being the birthplace of Rugby League back in 1895, The George Hotel attracted guests from around the world to stay in the iconic landmark. A full refurbishment will take place to restore the building's grandeur, while incorporating the unique and distinctive feel of the Radisson RED brand. There will be meeting and events spaces, including the room where the Rugby League treaty was signed, with a total size of more than 3,000 sq ft.

Meanwhile, Radisson RED Edinburgh Airport is the latest addition to the brand's UK portfolio, opening in 2026. The hotel will feature 204 guest rooms, following Radisson RED's signature bold and stylish design.

Adela Cristea, Vice President, Business Development UK & Ireland at Radisson Hotel Group, said: "We are proud to build on the success of Radisson RED and continue its UK expansion. Our Edinburgh Airport property will offer business and leisure travellers a relaxed stay within an informal setting to start their holiday or unwind after a long journey, while in Huddersfield we're proud to be breathing new life into one of the town's most iconic buildings."
