Radisson Hotel Group has announced the expansion to its Radisson RED portfolio with a new 200-room Newcastle hotel.

Set to open in 2023, the establishment will be located within The High Street Group’s £120m Strawberry Place development.

Also featured in the property will be a sky bar, extensive conference and banqueting facilities, informal meeting spaces, and a residents’ gym.

Elie Younes, executive vice president and chief development officer at Radisson Hotel Group, said: “We’re very excited to be part of the incredible cultural scene in Newcastle, bringing fun with a fresh, upscale hotel brand to the city centre. Radisson RED and Newcastle are a fantastic match.”

Situated next to St James’ Park stadium, the hotel will be a part of one of The High Street Group’s 18 pipeline development projects.

The group already operates 21 hotels, bars, and restaurants in the North East, and has also recently completed the Hadrian’s Tower residential, leisure, and retail scheme.

Gary Forrest, chairman at The High Street Group, said: “We are delighted to agree the partnership with Radisson Hotel Group, one of the leading global hotel operators, to help make our development at Strawberry Place a fantastic destination location. 

“Radisson Hotel Group’s culture and beliefs link in perfectly with the High Street Group’s development strategy and vision for Newcastle. The partnership signifies a key aspect of our plans to bring significant long-term benefits to the city, its people and its visitors.”
