Park Inn by Radisson announced the opening of a 142-room hotel in Berchem in the Antwerp province. This opening brings the group’s Belgian portfolio to 14 hotels and more than 1,900 rooms in operation, with another hotel and 110 rooms under development.
Located at the edge of the largest city in Flanders, and at the intersection of roads approaching Antwerp, Park Inn by Radisson Berchem opens its doors in the Green Lung of Antwerp. The hotel provides easy access to Antwerp – situated on the outskirts of the city but within walking distance of a train and bus station, near to multiple tram lines and a stone’s throw from Deurne airport.
Richard Moore, Area Senior Vice President UK, Ireland & Western Europe at Radisson Hotel Group, said: “We’re delighted to strengthen our presence in Belgium and especially in the Antwerp area. The property’s enviable location offers an attractive solution for both business and leisure travelers. Our guests can park their cars at an advantageous rate and continue their journeys by public transport to attractions like the opera or a show at the Sportpaleis. At the same time, Berchem is also known as a quiet, green area that will become even more attractive as a hub just outside Antwerp’s historical city center.”
The 142 bedrooms are stylishly furnished with a contemporary design that reflects the hotel’s business district surroundings, while the on-site RBG Grill restaurant offers an enjoyable dining and drinking experience for culinary enthusiasts.
The property is also situated close to the district of Zurenborg, famous for its architecture. The historical importance of the area is recognized inside the hotel, with meeting rooms and conference rooms named after the Cogels-Osylei, the main street of Zurenborg.
The hotel is ideal for meetings, conferences and events – with two of the five meeting rooms featuring direct access to a spacious terrace, which is perfect for break times and receptions. The meeting rooms are equipped with the latest technology, including screens fitted with Barco Clickshare.
Laurent Heusdens, General Manager of Park Inn by Radisson Berchem, said: “We are thrilled to be able to offer our guests a completely new experience. Our greatest assets – accessibility, the facilities in our meeting and conference rooms, and our guestrooms – will help to position us as one of the top hotels in Antwerp. With a perfect location, close to the popular, trendy district of Dageraadplaats, we want to offer our guests a positive and stress-free experience.”
