Radisson Blu has announced the opening of its first hotel in Casablanca, Radisson Hotel Group’s second hotel in Morocco.
Located in the middle of the Mohammed V Boulevard, close to the Old Medina and other thriving tourist attractions, Radisson Blu Hotel, Casablanca City Center is nestled amongst elegant Art Deco-inspired buildings.
“We’re thrilled to open the doors of our first hotel in Casablanca, Morocco’s largest city which is known as the ‘gateway to Africa’ thanks to its exceptional links with the region. Since 2015, Casablanca has been ranked as Africa’s top financial hub by the Global Financial Centres Index. With this in mind, on top of the endless potential Casablanca and Morocco has to offer, we have pinned them as key focus markets for Radisson Hotel Group in Africa and we are proud to be entering the market with a flagship hotel of this caliber,” says Tim Cordon, senior area vice president, Middle East & Africa, Radisson Hotel Group.
With an artistic and modern design, the hotel contains 120 rooms steeped in heritage, including 16 suites which overlook characterful Art Deco buildings and the serene Atlantic Ocean. The art-oriented hotel also houses an exceptional, permanent art exhibition by Moroccan modernist artist, Mohamed Melehi, whose paintings are famously characterised by a kaleidoscope of colour.
With a diverse array of food and beverages options, the property offers the traveler a gastronomic immersion from East to West through its French brasserie “la Collection” and the Japanese restaurant “YUZU”. Guests can also unwind in the tranquil Cinq Mondes Spa, take a dip in the indoor pool or experience the blissful calm of the hotel’s jacuzzi.
