Sheffield’s new Radisson Blu hotel opens in Heart of the City

Sheffield’s new flagship hotel, Radisson Blu, has officially opened in the city centre, delivering a new standard of hospitality in the city.

The Lord Mayor of Sheffield was joined by members of Sheffield City Council and the Heart of the City project team to open Radisson Blu Hotel, Sheffield.

Located on Pinstone Street, Radisson Blu Hotel, Sheffield, boasts a sympathetically restored Victorian façade and striking views overlooking the Town Hall and Peace Gardens. Its timeless design makes it a stylish addition to Heart of the City – Sheffield City Council and Queensberry’s vibrant regeneration scheme.

With 154 contemporary guest rooms, a rooftop speakeasy-style Indian restaurant and bar, six flexible meeting and event spaces, an outdoor terrace and a fitness centre, the hotel is the perfect base for both business and leisure stays.

Valerie Donaldson, General Manager of Radisson Blu Hotel, Sheffield, said:

“We are thrilled to welcome guests to our stunning property where history meets hospitality. With architectural grandeur and luxurious contemporary facilities, we aim to create the perfect symphony of sophistication for a well-rounded stay.

“As part of the Heart of the City regeneration project, the hotel plays a pivotal role in shaping the city’s new identity while staying true to its roots.”

In a direct nod to the nearby Peak District, the hotel takes inspiration from organic shapes and colours found in nature, with natural materials combining with contemporary design to instantly make guests feel at ease.

Kate Josephs, Chief Executive of Sheffield City Council, said:

“We are delighted that our new Radisson Blu hotel is now open. Our significant investment and regeneration projects in the city centre are helping us attract some world-class brands and Radisson Blu undoubtedly raises the bar for hospitality in South Yorkshire. It will be a tremendous asset to Sheffield, featuring a public rooftop bar and restaurant, conference and event spaces to support our business community, and setting a new benchmark for accommodation that will help us attract visitors from far and wide.”

Andrew Davison, Project Director at Queensberry, added:

“Radisson Blu is recognised across the globe for its quality and style, and perfectly reflects the ambition and impact of Heart of the City. A lot of hard work has gone into making this hotel a reality and I’m incredibly proud of Sheffield Council, Queensberry and the whole project team.”

The hotel’s stylish top-floor restaurant and bar, Governor Gupta, celebrates the vibrant flavours of northern India, dishing out creative small plates, kebabs, grills and Naans. This is all perfectly paired with an extensive menu of cocktails, wines and bubbly.

The hotel’s six meeting and event spaces offer various configurations and versatile settings. The meeting and event area includes a spacious breakout area, private bar and a courtyard for outdoor use.

Tom Flanagan Karttunen, Area Senior Vice President Northern & Western Europe, Radisson Hotel Group, adds:

“The opening of Radisson Blu Hotel, Sheffield, marks a significant milestone for us and the city. Located in the heart of Sheffield city centre, and part of the city’s ‘Heart of the City’ regeneration investment, this hotel is the first new hotel in the city for many years. We are excited to bring a touch of Blu to the UK’s greenest city, at a prime location for leisure guests, corporates and meeting & events.”
