Radisson to take over InterCon Dubai


THE InterContinental Hotels Group will cede the management of its flagship InterContinental Hotel Dubai to Rezidor SAS.

The landmark Deira business district property, the emirate’s first five-star hotel, will carry the Radisson brand from October 1 this year. The hotel is popular with business travellers and the GCC leisure market. It features 287 guest-rooms, including 39 suites, a total of 16 food and beverage outlets and extensive meeting and exhibition facilities.
“We are honoured to take on this property. We are planning a major renovation programme to recapture the grandeur of the hotel,” says Kurt Ritter, president and CEO, Rezidor SAS Hospitality.
