The Rezidor Hotel Group has unveiled a new 261-room Radisson Blu Hotel at Abidjan Airport. The hotel is located about 500 meters from Port Bouet Airport also known as Félix-Houphouët-Boigny International Airport and offers suites and meeting facilities. Abidjan is the largest city in Côte D’Ivoire and the third-largest French-speaking city in the world, after Paris and Kinshasa.

According to The Rezidor Hotel Group, Abidjan Airport is ‘bursting at the seams’ with 1.3 million passengers landing in this international airport in 2015, double the tally from four years ago.

Radisson Blu Hotel, Abidjan Airport will be able to enjoy Radisson Blu amenities such as complimentary high speed wireless internet and on-site dining options including exotic African and international cuisine. The nearby Le Plateau district provides a home for many businesses, banks, boutiques and outdoor cafés.

Speaking on the new hotel, Marc Descrozaille, Area VP Africa and Indian Ocean of The Rezidor Hotel Group said:

“This opening is [a] testament to the firm belief we have in Africa’s growth potential and clearly illustrates how committed we are in ensuring that Rezidor and Africa’s growth story are integrally and simultaneously told…With 30 hotels and more than 6,000 rooms in the pipeline, the future is certainly positive.”

Radisson Blu’s pipeline for hotels include a 330-room hotel in Lome – Togo, a 171-room hotel in N’Djamena – Chad and a 250-room hotel in Abuja – Nigeria.
