Sheffield’s city centre celebrated a significant addition to its hospitality landscape today with the official opening of the new Radisson Blu hotel on Pinstone Street.

The latest addition to the Heart of the City project, the flagship hotel features 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, making it an ideal destination for both business and leisure travellers.

Valerie Donaldson, General Manager of Radisson Blu Hotel, Sheffield, expressed her excitement about the new opening. “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,” she said. Donaldson emphasized the hotel’s role in the city’s ongoing transformation, adding, “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.”

Drawing inspiration from the nearby Peak District, the hotel’s design incorporates organic shapes and natural materials.

Kate Josephs, Chief Executive of Sheffield City Council, highlighted the importance of the new hotel in the city’s development. “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,” she stated.

Andrew Davison, Project Director at Queensberry, echoed these sentiments, emphasising the hard work that has gone into realising this project. “Radisson Blu is recognized 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,” Davison said.

The hotel’s top-floor restaurant and bar, Governor Gupta, is hoping to become a culinary hotspot, celebrating the flavours of northern India. The menu features creative small plates, kebabs, grills, and Naans, paired with an extensive selection of cocktails, wines and bubbly.

For business needs, the hotel offers six versatile meeting and event spaces that can be configured in various ways. The area includes a spacious breakout area, a private bar, and a courtyard for outdoor events, promising a comprehensive and adaptable setting for conferences and gatherings.
