Passers-by might not realize it, but the downtown Toledo Radisson Hotel has a new name and soon will undergo a facelift of spaces including guest rooms and the ballroom.
The hotel is now called the Park Inn Toledo, said general manager Michael Sapara. The Radisson and Park Inn are two of the chains owned by Carlson Hotels Worldwide. The Radisson line caters to transient guests, and the Park Inn is being positioned to handle convention business, he said, adding, "We are the prototype of what Park Inn wants to be."
The property has been owned for years by the Ohio Carpenters' Pension Fund, which will now manage the site, he said.
