Radisson is an upscale hotel brand that delivers Scandinavian-inspired hospitality and enables guests to focus on a work/life balance and find more harmony in their travel experience.
Liepaja is the 3rd largest city in Latvia, located on the west coast of the country, close to the border with Lithuania. The Liepaja Special Economic Zone has been created to help the city to attract international investment and there is also a thriving port.
In addition to business travellers, there has been an increase of leisure guests and tourists to the city over the past years. Many international travellers come to visit the city, to experience events organized at the Great Amber Concert Hall or to enjoy the variety of sports and culture events happening in Liepaja.
Liepaja International Airport is only 8.5 km away and the train station is located 2km from the hotel, offering regular trains to various destinations such as Riga. Additionally, guests can get the ferry and bus to and from the city.
Uldis Sesks, Deputy Chairman of the Liepaja City Council, says: “Having an international hotel chain of such calibre entering Liepaja marks a new milestone for our hospitality industry that we have worked towards over the last few years. Liepaja will become the first city outside of the capital Riga and its surroundings that will house a highly acclaimed hotel brand. This is undoubtedly a recognition of the versatility of Liepaja’s artistic and cultural life, rich sports infrastructure, airport facilities, connectivity as well as the comfortable and accessible environment that makes Liepaja attractive for work and leisure. Radisson is one of the world’s leading hotel chains with more than 1,400 hotels in countless countries, therefore the presence of this hotel in Liepaja opens up new opportunities for us, new capacities and adds a new landmark. It serves as a well-known sign of recognition and quality of the city itself, encouraging visitors from Scandinavia, Germany, United States and many other countries to discover and explore this region, making it more well-known.”
