The Radisson Blu Hotel, Ordu, which is a semi-conversion, is located near the Black Sea, with 129 rooms, and a restaurant and bar
The Radisson Blu Hotel, Ordu started welcoming guests to its hilltop property at the end of June 2016.
The upper-upscale property is a semi-conversion and brings Rezidor Hotel Group’s portfolio in Turkey up to 23 hotels, with more than 4,000 rooms in operation or under development.
Executive vice president & chief development officer Elie Younes said: “We are delighted to arrive in Ordu and to add another major city in Turkey to our network. This will further increase brand awareness for Radisson Blu which is already the largest upper-upscale brand in Istanbul and in Europe.”
“Hotel conversions support our accelerated growth strategy in our focus markets since they join the portfolio relatively quickly and generate immediate revenues," he added.
The Radisson Blu Hotel, Ordu is situated on a hilltop with views over the Black Sea and the city. The city centre and beaches are 15 minutes away and reachable by car or aerial lift, which is adjacent to the site.
Besides the 129 guest rooms, the hotel has a restaurant and bar, a 1,000m2 ballroom, meeting rooms and pre-function area, spa, pool, gym, hair dresser, and parking bays.
Ordu is frequented by domestic and regional travellers, and is an industrial hub as the city is the largest hazelnut producer in the world, accounting for 70% of global production.
