RADISSON SAS: Following up our story in ABTN last week, the New Year will see the openings of the 107-room Radisson SAS Grand Royal Hotel in Narvik, northern Norway, the 132-room Radisson SAS Plaza Hotel in the university town of Karlstad, which has become a major centre for Sweden's IT sector, and the 391-room Radisson SAS Hotel in Cologne - one of three new German properties to come on line. The Radisson SAS Business Park Hotel, a 167-room property in the Nydalen district of Oslo, opens in June 2003; the following month sees the 203-room Radisson SAS Hotel in Krakow, Poland and the 114-room Radisson SAS Hotel Letterkenny set to become one of Ireland's leading conference hotels. The end of the summer will also see the opening of a golf resort in B”k, Hungary, which will offer 200-rooms. For October it”s the grand opening of a new and highly unusual 429-room Radisson SAS Hotel in Berlin. This hotel is being designed with a floor to ceiling aquarium, covering several storeys and with hundreds of tropical fish - the elevator is even in the middle of the aquarium to give guests a rather unusual view during their stay. November heralds the last of the planned hotels for 2003 with the opening of a new Rostock, Germany, property, overlooking the port and the Baltic. Older readers may recall David Frost”s satire tv programme ”That Was the Week That Was” from yesteryear. ”Hilton opened a new hotel every day - But on the seventh day he did not rest!” (incidentally it was forty years ago last Saturday that the first programme went out).
