Radisson, a world-renowned hotel brand, has partnered with The Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City. Now known as The Claridge—A Radisson Hotel, the hotel was built in 1930; the 24-story hotel was known as the Skyscraper by the Sea and is a landmark reminiscent of the Jazz Age.

“We are excited to welcome this iconic and historic hotel to our growing portfolio,” says Javier Rosenberg, chief operating officer, Americas, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group. “This partnership provides The Claridge access to Radisson’s global reservations systems and marketing efforts and furthers the brand’s commitment to offering locations in key destinations that cater to both leisure and business guests.”

The Claridge recently opened a conference center and a rooftop bar called VUE. They plan to further develop their leisure and meetings business with their latest partnership and through a new marketing plan.

“This new partnership is an exceptional opportunity for The Claridge to grow from a successful independent boutique hotel to a property with global reach in a range of business and leisure markets,” says Cem Erenler, vice president, operations and business development.

Before their partnership, The Claridge was purchased by TJM Properties in 2012, which led to a $25 million renovation. The hotel boasts 500 guest rooms and suites, a restaurant, cocktail lounge, rooftop bar, theater, conference center and 100,000 square feet of meeting and event space.

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.
