Artist Impression of Radisson RED Auckland in New Zealand

Radisson Hotel Group will introduce its first playful and dynamic brand, Radisson RED, to Auckland, New Zealand. 

Located in the heart of Queen Street, the purpose-built 322-key Radisson RED Auckland will offer a modern lifestyle experience to its guests and add an eclectic ambiance to Auckland.

Radisson RED offers stylish spaces with standout designs where guests can feel inspired, engaged and connected to the heart of the destination. The new launch draws inspiration from Aotea’s surrounding arts and entertainment venues, creating social spaces designed for guests to unwind and relax in the informal and inviting hotel environment.

Since the reopening of the country’s international borders in August 2022, New Zealand’s tourism industry has enjoyed robust growth, with 2.96 million overseas visitor arrivals in the year ending December 2023, up by 1.52 million from the previous year. 

The property is owned by Stonewood Group, a prominent developer with a robust track record in New Zealand’s property sector. This underscores Radisson Hotel Group’s commitment to engaging with owners through various diverse business models within the Auckland and New Zealand hospitality market.

“We are thrilled to establish our relationship with Stonewood Group and introduce New Zealand’s largest leased project with the 322-key Radisson RED Auckland. With its distinctive design, vibrant atmosphere, and the versatility to effortlessly transition between work and play, Radisson RED is an ideal match for Auckland, New Zealand’s largest and most populous city. Auckland is fast becoming one of New Zealand’s top tourist destinations renowned for its multiculturalism and culinary influences, making it an ideal and thriving market to launch the Radisson RED brand.” said Lachlan Hoswell, Managing Director, Australasia, Radisson Hotel Group.

“This is the perfect time to join forces with Radisson Hotel Group to introduce Radisson RED to Auckland. The Radisson RED brand is an ideal brand that diversifies our real estate portfolio, with a strong commercial and operational value proposition with a distinct design concept that helps guests immerse themselves into Queen Street’s thriving arts district. With Radisson Hotel Group’s strong network of loyal guests, and wide appeal to the modern-day traveller, we’re looking forward to opening the doors of the property in 2025.” said Michael Chow, Co-founder and Director, Stonewood Group.

Guests can choose from stylish Standard Rooms to spacious two-bedroom suites, and enjoy access to an all-day dining restaurant, a wellness facility as well as four function rooms for meetings and events. The hotel forms an integral component of a mixed-use commercial development, incorporating dining establishments including a rooftop specialty restaurant, and retail outlets. With close access to Auckland’s key attractions, guests can take a 10-minute walk to the Auckland waterfront which is surrounded by upscale shops, restaurants and bars. Moreover, the hotel boasts proximity to popular tourist attractions, including art galleries, parks, and museums.

The new Radisson RED hotel in New Zealand marks the latest expansion for the brand with nearly 80 hotels in operation and under development including recent openings and signings in Berlin, Tbilisi, Belgrade, Liverpool, Lagos, as well as upcoming openings in Phuket and Cebu.
