From one hotel epitomizing the glamour of 1960s America, Carlson has grown its hotel portfolio to more than 1,300 properties in operation and development and in more than 80 countries and territories.*

It began with one hotel located in downtown Minneapolis, in the heart of the Midwestern U.S., that set new standards for its era. Today, Carlson’s hotel business has grown one of the most dynamic portfolios in the business. It is a portfolio that has expanded one by one, brand by brand, country to country, to represent some of the world’s most respected hotel brands: Radisson Blu, Radisson®, Park Plaza®, Park Inn by Radisson, Country Inns & Suites By CarlsonSM and Hotel Missoni.
