The Radisson RED Cape Town opened its doors on September 12, 2017 in the V&A Waterfront’s newly revamped Silo District. The brand is aimed at millennials and is inspired by art, music and fashion.
The hotel features 252 rooms ranging from the standard two-sleeper studio to the studio suites with balconies and sea views, and pet-friendly rooms. Facilities include a fully-equipped gym, OUIBar and KTCHN and RED roof where regular ‘Call of the Lion’ braai events will be held.
“Radisson RED is a completely new and different hotel concept,” says Mark Willis, Carslson Rezidor Hotel Group’s Senior Area Vice President for the Middle East, Turkey and Africa. He said the brand offers an experience fueled by personal interaction and choice. “Cape Town is the perfect city to showcase our first Radisson RED in Africa. We are confident it will spearhead a snowball effect on expansion for the brand in key territories across the continent.”
Dale Simpson, the hotel’s GM (also know as the ‘Curator’), says: “For the city of Cape Town, developments such as this represent so much more. The recent restoration of the V&A Waterfront’s Silo District has created a major opportunity for Cape Town’s tourism sector, and we are thrilled to be an integral part of that.”
