Carlson Hotels Worldwide recently released their financial results for 2007, sharing with the world the remarkable success of the chain in the past twelve months. Revenues increased by 13 per cent into 2007, compared to 2006, with a total of nearly $7 billion last year. During that time, the company added 74 new hotels globally, distributed across the group’s five brands, including several new airport hotels.

The Rezidor Hotel Group, of which Carlson Hotels Worldwide owns a 41 per cent share, opened three Park Inn locations in the month of December. The first hotel to open, the Park Inn St. Helen’s, is located between Manchester and Liverpool. The second, the Park Inn Hamburg Nord, opened in Germany and the last, the Park Inn & Suites Montreal Airport, opened in Canada. With the new additions, the Park Inn portfolio holds 87 hotels globally.

In April and May of 2007, the group launched 13 hotels globally, including three airport hotels in Ireland. The 229-room Radisson SAS Hotel, Dublin Airport and the 81-room Radisson SAS Hotel, Cork Airport were opened in 2007 by Carlson Hotels Worldwide. The group’s Park Inn brand also opened a new airport hotel during the same time period, near the Shannon Airport.

In addition to opening new hotels, Carlson Hotels Worldwide also launched several new programs and services in 2007 including a new guest reward program known as Goldpoints Plus.
