CHICAGO—Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group will convert the Radisson Plaza-Warwick Hotel Philadelphia to the Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel Philadelphia by late summer 2013.
The 301-room hotel, located in the Rittenhouse Square district of Philadelphia, will undergo a $17-million renovation that will include a redesign of all guestrooms and corridors, as well as the hotel’s grand lobby. It will remain open during the conversion.
In addition to 301 guestrooms, the hotel offers a 2,000-sq.-ft. fitness center, 17,000-sq.-ft. of event space and three dining venues.
The hotel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
This marks the fourth Radisson Blu property in the Americas.
