Radisson Blu shuts down operations over renovation

…disengages workers

The five-star, water-front Radisson Blu Anchorage Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos, has shut down operations to conduct extensive renovation of its facilities, as part of its management’s commitment to retain standards and remain the hotel of first choice for guests visiting Lagos, for business or pleasure.

The shut-down, according to the management, paved way for disengagement of workers of the hotel, given the required duration of renovation.

According to a statement by Anchorage Leisures Limited, owners of the hotel, the extensive renovation of the facilities will “cover areas such as power generation, cooling system as well as other critical equipment.”

“The magnitude of the renovation work has, however, necessitated shutting down of business operations for the duration of the renovation,” the statement further indicated.

The firm, however, stressed that it would abide by all contractual terms by ensuring payment of all that is due to the staff.

Maintaining its appreciation for its people, it noted its commitment to welfare of its staff, stressing that, “even when we experienced very low patronage during the Ebola crisis in Nigeria, we retained all our staff. However, the magnitude of this renovation work has compelled a total shut- down of business activities.”

The management, however, assured its numerous guests in Nigeria and across the world that Radisson Blu Anchorage Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos, will re-open with increased focus on delivery of superior quality service.

“We are mindful of our position as a premium hospitality brand and we will continue to do everything required to maintain our premium standard and ensure our guests are treated to the best-in-class hospitality services available anywhere in the world,” the statement added.
