Linstow rebranded hotel in Kaunas from Park Inn to Radisson
Radisson brand arrives in Lithuania with the extensive transformation of Radisson Hotel Kaunas.
Park Inn by Radisson Kaunas, the largest hotel in Kaunas, has renovated all guest rooms to improve the guest experience and transform the hotel into Radisson Hotel Kaunas, a Radisson branded hotel.
Radisson Hotel Kaunas features 206 rooms, all refurbished to embody Radisson’s signature modern, Scandinavian style in partnership with Latvian architect company STAŅEVIČA UN BULA and designer Barbara Bula. New large LED TVs, energy efficient mini-fridges, and bathrooms fitted with Hansgrohe airpower/water-efficient rain showers, as well as upgraded internet facilities to include new technological advancements – a key priority for travelers nowadays – have been included in the extensive room renovation.
Each of the renovated rooms display artworks by the famous, award-winning Kaunas photographer A. Aleksandravičius. He has an extensive portfolio of stunning photo projects, photojournalism and commercial photo projects. In the guest rooms, the black and white prints reflect different locations in the city.
The presidential suite is perfect for any guest; locals, international travelers, top-level heads of state, celebrities and sports and entertainment figures. The hotel’s conference center with one of the largest conference venues in the area, including 8 function spaces spanning over 1,400 m2, also offers additional state-of-the-art services, with the possibility of Hybrid Meetings, live streaming from one room to another, upgraded technical equipment and a dedicated Zoom room.
The hotel’s lobby, bar and restaurant will undergo a renovation in the autumn to further enhance the guest experience.
“We are proud to introduce the Radisson brand to Lithuania with the renovated Radisson Hotel Kaunas. The Radisson brand offers Scandinavian inspired hospitality, with nature-inspired design, which is perfectly brought to life in this hotel. Radisson Hotel Kaunas offers guests new rooms and amenities, as well as updated and modern services which will give guests more options and choices to enrich their experience while staying with us”, explains Jūratė Rudienė, General Manager, Radisson Hotel Kaunas.
Radisson Hotel Kaunas remains under the same ownership of Norwegian company, Linstow. David Nordvaller, Head of Hotels at Linstow, said: “Although the last year has been challenging for the tourism industry, Linstow is investing in the hotel segment in Kaunas and strongly believes in its long-term success. A 2.5 million EUR investment and the rebranding from Park Inn by Radisson Kaunas to Radisson Hotel Kaunas will ensure our leading position in the Kaunas market and the hotel will be a first choice for business and leisure travelers”.
Kaunas is the second largest city in Lithuania, located where rivers Nemunas and Neris meet. The city has a beautiful Old Town, only 2,5 km from the hotel, with gothic buildings, wonderful street art, several museums worth visiting and an exciting food scene. Known locally as the ‘White Swan’, the impressive town hall is located in the heart of the Old Town surrounded by houses from the 16th and 17th centuries.
The main pedestrian street, Vilniaus, is the oldest street in the city and formerly, the medieval road to Vilnius. Full of small shops, restaurants, bars and cafes with plenty of outdoor seating, this beautiful part of the Old Town makes the perfect place to experience the city’s life. The city is also full of green areas, with beautiful rivers and pleasant, calming areas. Kaunas has been selected as the European Capital of Culture for 2022. Together with various cultural organizations, artists and creatives, the city has developed an extensive program they call ‘Contemporary Capital’, moving from a temporary to contemporary city.
With the health and safety of guests and team members as its top priority, Radisson Hotel Kaunas applies the Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol program. The in-depth cleanliness and disinfection protocols were developed in partnership with SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, and are designed to ensure guest safety and peace of mind from check-in to check-out.
