In January, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group in partnership with Eros Group officially launched Radisson Blu in Faridabad, Haryana. Touted as the first international upper-upscale hotel in the city and located right opposite a Metro station, the property is looking to take the first-mover advantage in the industrial hub. Spread over 1.6 acres, the hotel has swanky interiors and 124 rooms with all the mod cons. Looking to host corporate and social events, the hotel has a pillar-less ballroom with the capacity to host 1,000 guests. There are also four dining options including Tea Studio, a patisserie shop, Broadway, an all-day diner, House of Soy, a pan-Asian restaurant and The Cove, a bar. Everything seems to be in place, but whether this new luxurious, upscale hotel will work in the industrial hub of Faridabad or not, only time will tell.
