NEW YORK—Radisson recently signed the Radisson Hotel JFK Airport in Jamaica with an expected opening in October. The 385-guestroom, full-service hotel, adjacent to John F. Kennedy International Airport, will then immediately undergo a multi-million dollar renovation while remaining open.
Located just minutes from John F. Kennedy International Airport, the hotel will offer 24-hour free airport shuttle, complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access throughout the hotel, a fitness center and sauna, and a 24-hour business center. Café 140 will offer guests full-service dining serving breakfast buffet, lunch and dinner. The hotel will have over 4,500 sq. ft. of versatile banquet and meeting space.
“The signing of this airport hotel reinforces our commitment to enhance the brand’s portfolio and further expand our presence in key markets in North America,” stated Javier Rosenberg, COO, Radisson, Americas. “Airport locations such as this play a key role as we continue developing the Radisson brand as a powerful, globally consistent, first class-brand complemented by the Radisson ‘Yes I Can!’ service spirit.”
