Radisson Hotel York

Radisson Hotel York is the first Radisson-branded hotel to open in the north of England and the second in the UK, joining Radisson Hotel & Conference Centre London Heathrow.

Previously known as Park Inn by Radisson York City Centre, the riverside property has undergone an impressive transformation to become Radisson Hotel York. The city is famous for its ancient walls, inside which visitors can discover museums, galleries, festivals, as well as historical and cultural landmarks such as York Minster, the National Railway Museum, Jorvik Viking Centre and The Shambles.

Originally built in 1969, Radisson Hotel York is an eight-story city center building that sits on the banks of the River Ouse and is the second tallest building in York, preceded only by York Minster, offering unique views of the city. The hotel now features 200 guest rooms, offering a combination of business and leisure amenities to please everyone.

The renovation has introduced new flooring, furniture and furnishings as well as the addition of self-service check-in desks. There is also new décor, reflecting the Radisson brand’s Scandinavian roots. Furthermore, the hotel features a restaurant called The Paddle Room which serves sharing plates as well as pub classics, with multiple vegetarian and vegan options.

In addition, the property offers a range of flexible and versatile meeting and function spaces to cater for a wide range of events, such as large conferences of up to 400 people, a gym for residents and parking spaces for up to 51 cars.

We’re thrilled to expand our UK portfolio with the opening of another Radisson-branded property and introduce the brand to the north of England, in the charming city of York. The hotel’s central location is an ideal setting from which to explore York’s rich and fascinating history.

The hotel’s renovation brings an elevated offering for the local community as well as for the 8 million plus visitors travelling to York for business and leisure every year. We are proud to offer a relaxing and calm environment for guests to unwind and enjoy our Scandinavian-inspired design combined with our warm and welcoming Yorkshire hospitality.
