GIVEAWAY: Radisson’s “50 Years, 50 Days, 50 Rooms”


If you want a taste of history when traveling to New York City, you can start with a stay at The Radisson Martinique on Broadway. It opened in the early 1900s, long before Macy’s Herald Square, Penn Station and even the great landmark of the Empire State Building where even around, and much longer before the PATH train even came so far up. The hotel came to life in a time when the Great White Way was in full bloom and since it has been a favorite for many who consider a stay near all the lights and sounds of Broadway to be the perfect NYC experience.

The Hotel Martinique closed for 2 years when it underwent a complete renovation in 1996. On May 5, 1998, the Hotel Martinique was granted landmark status by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. The hotel is now called the Radisson Martinique on Broadway.

The Radisson brand is one that I have known and trusted for years and the Radisson Martinique is one that those visiting my beloved city can enjoy. The ability to experience something special and unique with your stay is what brings people back and has made this brand such a beloved, long lasting favorite among travelers.

In honor of Radisson’s 50th Anniversary, and as part of Radisson’s  “50 Years, 50 Days, 50 Rooms” we are giving away one room to one lucky Girl Gone Travel reader!



THANK YOU to all who entered and for sharing your favorite destinations with us all!

Note: Radisson’s 50 Years, 50 Days, 50 Rooms celebration, takes place each day at 10 a.m. EST with the hotelier revealing that day’s participating blogger on the Radisson Facebook Page everyday through Dec. 10, 2012. More chances to win!

  56. patricia caradonna says:

    My favorite city where a Radisson Hotel is located is Port Canaveral, Florida. It is a great location. It is by the beach and Kennedy Space Center. They have the best parking facility and prices for people going on a cruise. The park-n-go is excellent. If you are going on a cruise you can stay at the Radisson and extend your vacation. Jetty Park is real close to the Radisson hotel. The hotel and staff are lovely and there is so much to do. The pool is amazing.
