The Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the fastest growing hotel companies worldwide, has opened the Park Inn Oslo Airport, Gardermoen in Norway. Featuring 300 bright and spacious guest rooms, the brand new property is directly linked to the terminal – and only 20 minutes by express train away from the city centre. With 46 meeting rooms and a 236 m² ballroom, the hotel also offers some of the best conference facilities close to the airport.

“This exciting hotel further underlines our commitment to our young and dynamic mid-market brand Park Inn by Radisson – and further strengthens our position as Europe’s leading airport hotel operator with more than 30 airport hotels with over 8,000 rooms in operation and under development”, comments Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor.

Rooms at the Park Inn Oslo Airport show a modern and comfortable design – including kingsized, queen-sized or twin beds and extra amenities such as individual climate control, flatscreen TV and high-speed wireless Internet access. The rooms are all well sound-proofed, and most offer stunning views of the airport.

The vibrant all-day-dining restaurant RBG (“Red Bar & Grill”) serves a versatile menu, including signature dishes from the grill and organic options, and can accommodate up to 220 guests. The hotel bar is an elegant spot to meet friends and colleagues while enjoying some freshly brewed coffee, pre-dinner drinks or a late nightcap.

The hotel’s meeting rooms and the ballroom feature top-of-the-range audiovisual equipment and wireless Internet access. The combination of outstanding meeting facilities and the assistance of an experienced professional team will guarantee a successful event in a prime location just a two minutes’ walk from the airport terminal.\

The cultural, scientific, economic and governmental centre of Norway, Oslo is also a hub of trade, banking, industry and shipping, as well as an important centre for maritime industries and maritime trade in Europe. The city is home to many companies within the maritime sector, some of them among the world’s largest shipping companies, shipbrokers and maritime insurance brokers.

Norway’s capital is an easy-going city with an architectural mix of old and new. The perfect size for exploring on foot, the city boasts world-class museums, a lively nightlife and plenty of activities for the energetic. Surrounded by green hills and mountains and situated at the head of the Oslofjord, Oslo is a magnet for those who love the great outdoors, with plenty of opportunities for cycling, hiking, ice-skating, kayaking, sailing and skiing – all within the city limits.
