Radisson “RED” hotel will occupy the first eight floors of the skyscraper planned for Southwest Portland.
The 180-room Radisson RED won’t have a front desk and will use technology “to simplify the experience and provide efficiencies including keyless guest room entry,” according to the release. Guests will use an app to enter their rooms and order food. The hotel will include a bar, a restaurant, a fitness center and conference rooms.
There are 15 Radisson RED hotels in development around the world, according to the release, including one in Minneapolis that will open late this year.
The Portland building – dubbed the Broadway Tower – was announced last summer and will also include ground-floor retail space and 10 floors of office space above the hotel. It’s slated to rise on property owned by the Goodman family along Broadway between Southwest Columbia and Southwest Clay streets, half a block from the South Park Blocks. The Goodmans tend to retain ownership of their land and enter into long-term leases with developers interested in building on the property.
