Gdansk is ranked as the third most visited city in Poland based on airport arrivals and a popular summer destination for leisure travelers and families. Located on the city’s historic Granary Island, the Radisson Hotel & Suites has a prime location in the city – ‘just a bridge’ away from the historic center and many other tourist attractions. Dlugi Targ, the main shopping and restaurant district in the city, is just around the corner. The main train station is just 1.5km away (providing connections to Warsaw and Krakow), while Gdansk International Airport is located 17km from the hotel.

The Radisson Hotel & Suites, Gdansk complements the Deo Plaza, a spectacular new home for residential apartments, and a wide range of shops and restaurants as well. The designed complex will continue the Old-architectural style enriched with a modern twist. Special emphasis was placed on the high quality of natural materials like Baltic amber, ceramics, bricks and large amounts of glazing and steel. The Hotel project is designed by the architectural office of KD Kozikowski Design & interior design came from LOFT Magdalena Adamus.

Yilmaz Yildirimlar, Area Senior Vice President of the Area Central & Southern Europe region for Radisson Hotel Group, said: “We’re really proud of the opening of the very first Radisson hotel in Europe and we believe in the high potential market in Poland.
