The long-awaited Radisson RED Cape Town opens its doors today in the V&A Waterfront’s newly revamped Silo District. Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group’s innovative global hotel and lifestyle brand that appeals to tech-savvy guests with a millennial mindset. Radisson RED’s bold, inspirational design and philosophy is set to shake-up South Africa’s staid and traditional hotel scene.
Radisson RED Cape Town features 252 rooms – ranging from the standard two-sleeper studio to the studio suites, with balconies and sea views and, of course, pet-friendly rooms. “Guests at the hotel are free to enjoy the fully equipped gym before popping down to the trendy OUIBar and KTCHN for a refreshing, local craft beer or cocktail and something to nibble on. We also look forward to welcoming members of the public to the famed RED roof, where we’ll be hosting regular ‘Call of the Loin’ barbecue events – so keep an ear out for the sound of our distinctive horn on Friday afternoons.”
The opening of the Radisson RED Cape Town follows successful global launches in Brussels, Minneapolis and the most recent addition in Campinas (Brazil) – with developments in various other parts of the world set to launch soon. “I believe that the raging success of this new brand is due to the fact that we have innovation at the heart of everything we do – product, service, people – we truly do dare to be different,” says Simpson. “From keyless entry and tech-driven design, to multifunctional social spaces and our pet-friendly policy, we’ve reinvented everything to perfectly suit an ageless, boundary-less, truly international clientele.”
The hotel’s location itself is the talk of the town and the RED-savvy world, concludes Simpson. “Located in Silo Six, right in the heart of the bustling Waterfront, and amidst the city’s vibrant nightlife, visiting locals and guests will experience Instagram-worthy views of both the city’s bustling harbor and its idyllic mountains.”
