Radisson Hotel Group, a leading global hospitality company, has announced the opening of Mansard Riyadh, A Radisson Collection Hotel, and the luxury lifestyle brand’s second hotel in the capital city of Saudi Arabia.
The hotel’s name comes from its discreet Mansard roofline, designed in deference to the signature Parisian Haussmann style of the mid-1800s, and evokes images of the grand buildings which line the fashionable boulevards of Paris.
Mansard Riyadh, A Radisson Collection Hotel is immaculately located in the northern neighbourhood of Ar Rabi, an area that brags easy access to shopping centers, cafés, and dining options. The hotel is just a short distance away from the King Abdullah Financial District, located in the city centre of Riyadh, and once open will be a sustainable financial centre with a lovely mix of public places, trade, commercial, and residential buildings.
The planner of the newly built hotel is Remaizan S Al Remaizan Architectural Consultants and was planned by Hirsch Bedner Associates Dubai (HBA). The hotel extends across 191 beautifully planned rooms, serviced apartments, and duplex villas enhanced with elusive colour hints of blue and beige which lace through the hotel’s interiors, creating a soothing and enduring atmosphere for visitors.
Corridors are lined with modern works by local artist Mishal Saad Alzaid. The prominent millwork of the guestroom doors set the scene for the rooms modern design featuring contemporary furniture with opulent upholstery that exudes a sense of timeless elegance.
The minimalist yet lush three-bedroom penthouse suite has been stylishly designed with modern-day details, hardwood floors, and sophisticated fabrics. The penthouse suite contains a master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, three spacious bedrooms, a living area, kitchen, and dining room which seats up to eight guests. Guests can have a relaxing experience in the suite’s whirlpool tub surrounded by marble floors, Italian finishes, and double vanities.

On the second floor, three spacious and sophisticated bedrooms with en suite bathrooms fill the space with utmost charm. The villas portray the grand squares of Paris, such as Vendôme, Concorde, and Opéra.
