The 150-room hotel is the latest part of the Heart of the City development being delivered by the council and development partner Queensberry.

The hotel in Pinstone Street sits behind a restored Victorian façade and has views of the Town Hall and Peace Gardens. There is an Indian restaurant, along with six meeting and event spaces, an outdoor terrace and a fitness centre.

Valerie Donaldson, general manager of Radisson Blu Hotel, Sheffield, said: “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.

“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.”

Main contractor was McLaughlin & Harvey. Also advising Sheffield City Council and Queensberry were Turner & Townsend, HLM Architects, and Counter Context.

Kate Josephs, chief executive of Sheffield City Council, said: “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. It will be a tremendous asset to Sheffield, featuring a public rooftop bar and restaurant, conference and event spaces to support our business community, and setting a new benchmark for accommodation that will help us attract visitors from far and wide.”

Andrew Davison, Project Director at Queensberry, added: “Radisson Blu is recognised 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.”

Tom Flanagan Karttunen, area senior vice president Northern & Western Europe, Radisson Hotel Group, added: “The opening of Radisson Blu Hotel, Sheffield, marks a significant milestone for us and the city. Located in the heart of Sheffield city centre, and part of the city’s ‘Heart of the City’ regeneration investment, this hotel is the first new hotel in the city for many years. We are excited to bring a touch of Blu to the UK’s greenest city, at a prime location for leisure guests, corporates and meeting & events.”
