Radisson Hotel Group

Committed to delivering a clean and safe environment through health and safety protocols

One of our highest priorities is the health, safety, and security of our guests, team members, and business partners.   COVID-19 has fundamentally changed the way we live, and we are adjusting our daily operations to fit within the new normal.   In response to this, we and a team of experts have reviewed our existing health and safety processes and developed a new safety protocol.   This in-depth cleanliness and disinfection protocol has been created in partnership with SGS and is designed to ensure your safety and peace of mind from check-in to check-out.


What are the new protocols?

A new 20-step protocol for hotels and 10-step protocol for meeting and event spaces is currently being introduced to our hotels.  New cleaning and disinfection procedures, increased attention to safety in communal spaces, protective equipment, and updated training for team members are included in the new protocols.   All our worldwide locations are being briefed on these protocols and strongly encouraged to implement them.   These protocols describe specific processes and measures that are designed to make you feel confident when you visit us. To learn more, watch our cleaning and safety protocol videos.


Who is SGS?

SGS is the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company, recognized as the global benchmark for quality and integrity.   With more than 94,000 employees, SGS operates a network of over 2,600 offices and laboratories around the world.   Partnering with SGS ensures that the new protocols are validated, adapted, and in accordance with local requirements and recommendations.   Under this program, individual hotels that comply with protocols can receive an official label of cleanliness and disinfection, issued by SGS, upon completion of a comprehensive local audit.

A new brand identity heralds a new era for the company


Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group announces its rebranding to Radisson Hotel Group

The new identity leverages the powerful, international brand equity of the Radisson name to drive awareness in the marketplace, increase marketing efficiency across the global portfolio and offer exceptional experiences to make Every Moment Matter for guests, owners and talent. Every Moment Matters will be the new signature service philosophy of the company and all its hotel brands.

The new go-to-market name, Radisson Hotel Group, capitalizes on a strong partnership between Radisson Hospitality, Inc. (formerly Carlson Hotels, Inc.) and Rezidor Hotel Group AB (publicly listed on Nasdaq Stockholm, Sweden and headquartered in Brussels, Belgium) who has master franchise agreements to develop and operate several brands across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Currently, the 11th largest hotel group in the world, Radisson Hotel Group is made up of eight hotel brands with more than 1,400 hotels in operation and under development. The launch of the group’s new identity is a significant milestone in a five-year operating plan that will transform the business and position it to become the preferred choice for guests, owners, investors and talent.

“Today is the start of an exciting era for the Radisson Hotel Group, united by our new brand and long-term vision to become a top three hospitality company in the world,” said Federico J. González, President & CEO, the Rezidor Hotel Group and Chairman of the Global Steering Committee, Radisson Hotel Group. “Our five-year operating plan includes initiatives that redefine our value proposition, optimize our portfolio, streamline operations, invest in new technology systems and align our team members to deliver on our signature, Every Moment Matters. ‘Every moment Matters’ is about how we do business at the Radisson Hotel Group and who we are at the core - a place of purposeful encounters. For everyone. Everyday. Everywhere. Every time. Our rebranding is just the beginning.”

“The creation of the Radisson Hotel Group is an evolution of our long-term partnership with the Rezidor Hotel Group. Together, we are clarifying and executing a new brand architecture to create more value for our guests and owners,” said John M. Kidd, Chief Executive Officer & Chief Operating Officer, Radisson Hospitality, Inc. "It’s the right time for us to align our strategic and operating plans and go-to-market as one solid player.”
