Radisson Donates Beds for Needy

A partnership between Radisson Hotels & Resorts, United Way and Twin Cities, MN nonprofit Hope for the City have created a public-private coalition to find charitable homes for the thousands of beds the hotel chain will be replacing over the next two years.

Radisson recently announced that it will exchange its existing king, queen and double-sized beds for the Sleep Number beds by Select Comfort at 249 Radisson hotels and resorts in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean. The majority of the chain's 90,000 beds will be upgraded this year and in 2006.

“We want to provide an option for our hotels to put their existing beds to further good use and help those in need, rather than just liquidating the beds or having them end up in a landfill,” says Bjorn Gullaksen, executive vice president of Carlson Hotels Worldwide Full Service Hotels and brand leader for Radisson Hotels & Resorts.
