Since 2015, Casablanca has been ranked as Africa’s top financial hub by the Global Financial Centers Index. With this in mind, on top of the endless potential Casablanca and Morocco have to offer, we have pinned them as key focus markets for Radisson Hotel Group in Africa and we are proud to be entering the market with a flagship hotel of this caliber.”

With an artistic and modern design, the hotel contains 120 neat and cozy rooms steeped in heritage, including 16 suites, which overlook characterful Art Deco buildings and the serene Atlantic Ocean.
