One of the world’s most recognized hotel brands is now on display in Red Deer.

The iHotel at 6500 67th St. was officially rebranded as Radisson Hotel Red Deer on Tuesday.

“We are pleased to be joining the Radisson brand,” said owner Karima Suleman.

“Radisson is known for providing an elevated level of service and we look forward to delivering this to our guests.”

Suleman said the recognition associated with the Radisson name will be a plus for her 25-year-old hotel, as will its access to Radisson’s reservation system.

Part of the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, Radisson hotels can also be found in Calgary, Edmonton and Fort McMurray.

“We are excited to continue to expand our presence in North America with the opening of Radisson Hotel Red Deer, marking our fifth location in Alberta.” said Javier Rosenberg, chief operating officer with Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, Americas.

Radisson Hotel Red Deer has 142 guest rooms, including 33 suites, as well as three ballrooms, three boardrooms, an indoor pool, a restaurant and lounge, and other amenities.

Planet Fitness operates on site, as does Solace Spa & Salon, which is currently being renovated.

Suleman said no physical changes are being made in connection with the rebranding.

The hotel, which had operated as iHotel since 2012 and as a Holiday Inn before that, will retain its 3 1/2-star rating, she added.

Other Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group brands include Quorvus Collection, Radisson Blu, Radisson Red, Park Plaza, Park Inn by Radisson and Country Inns & Suites By Carlson.
