According to Radisson, consumer desire for upscale hotel design has become a standard expectation. As a result, Radisson is in the final stages of a brand-wide renovation, aimed to refresh the portfolio across its North American hotels. The Radisson at Lackawanna Station is among the hotels receiving a make-over.
“Design is ever-evolving and what is being implemented today is different from what was happening a few years ago,” says Javier Rosenberg, chief operating officer, Radisson, Americas. “In all cases, we ensure that the renovations reflect the refreshed brand DNA and recommend that certain elements cater to the location of that particular region.”
Of the Radisson at Lacakwanna Station, Radisson said, “A six-story, historic landmark that once served as a passenger train station, the Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel Scranton’s design maintains the original glory of this edifice while offering an elegant, timeless appeal. Considered one of the most beautiful terminals in the Eastern U.S., this neoclassical structure is listed with the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and has proudly received the 2011 Renovation Excellence Award.”
The design schemes, accents of color, and thoughtful tones are underpinned by a functionality and efficiency that has been honed by the top hotel designers and operators in the world. The process and selection of designing each property varies by location to ensure the hotel adapts to the local market and regional location. In other words, defining the restaurant concept, room design, color palette, and common space is a decision based on each individual hotel and the markets they serve. Each location was assigned a dedicated Technical Services team that supports hotel owners by working with an appointed designer.
