Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group has opened a new Radisson Blu hotel in Lyon, known as France's "second city," its culinary capital and the gateway to the nearby French Alps.

Located in Lyon's iconic Part-Dieu tower (pictured), locally called "Le Crayon," the Radisson Blu Hotel, Lyon, has 245 guest rooms, free high-speed wireless Internet, an onsite bar and restaurant, and 11 meeting rooms spanning more than 5,400 square feet on the hotel's 32nd floor, where natural light and 360-degree views of the city's historical quarter and the French Alps dominate.

"We are delighted to open the Radisson Blu in Lyon, delivering a stylish, sophisticated, and iconic hotel offering with great 'Yes I Can!' service," said Richard Moore, Carlson Rezidor's area vice president, U.K., Ireland and Western Europe. "Lyon is an important market in France and Europe, and this hotel opening superbly complements our existing portfolio of 11 Radisson Blu hotels across the country."
