A hotel serving England's East Midlands Airport, the Radisson Blu has undergone major renovations that has placed the hotel high on the list of UK's energy performance ratings. The Scandinavian hotel chain was voted one of the 10 most ethical companies in the world and all staff attend responsible business training. The hotel employs a tri-generation system fuelled by plant oil to heat, cool, and power the building. In fact, the Radisson Blu's carbon footprint is 88% lower than required under UK building regulations.
The hotel is conveniently located a half-hour's drive from such sites as Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre, Donington Park Race Track, and Alton Towers Theme Park.
Although it's largely a business hotel, many people travel with their families giving the Radisson Blue a relaxed atmosphere and the amenities are top-notch: Vast LCD TVs, supremely comfortable beds, a cozy lobby lounge, a pool, and a restaurant with a full bar.
