Radisson Manchester

Renovations, interior design, and new entry for hotel in Manchester, New Hampshire

Cambridge Seven Associates was commissioned to transform the 300-room Radisson Hotel Manchester, made famous as the site where politicians and journalists from around the world set up shop during the presidential primaries, into a modern, elegant destination for travelers to New England. C7A renovated the dark, heavy porte-cochere to create a light, welcoming point of entry, accomplished through the use of a modern glass canopy, dynamic lighting and elegant columns. Inside the hotel, the team transformed the lobby, lounge, and pre-function areas from a 1980s-style oak “fern bar” into a clean, contemporary, stylish space with warm cherry paneling in a modern, fresh geometric design. This sophisticated aesthetic is also apparent in the redesign of the grand stair, which is now sleek and transparent. C7A’s design work in Manchester was recipient of Radisson’s prestigious “Renovation of the Year” award.
