Radisson Hotel in downtown Lansing will get new name and internal makeover by 2023

LANSING, Mich. — The 256-room Radisson Hotel in downtown Lansing has a new owner and will soon get a new name and a makeover. The new owners are a privately held investment firm called Waramaug Hospitality. One company official says the hotel’s location and reputation in the community made it an attractive asset.

“We saw lots of opportunity here with this hotel that’s been operated wonderfully by the prior owner since 1986 under the Radisson brand. We saw an opportunity to come into Lansing and improve the hotel significantly. We’re going to change the brand to Doubletree by Hilton in a few years,” said Craig Nussbaum, senior vice president at Waramaug.The company expects to spend $10 million on renovations.
