There is a swanky, new Radisson Blu hotel connected to the Mall of America. USA Today reported that the hotel opened its doors last Friday for tourists hitting up the mammoth mall.

The Radisson boasts 500 rooms with carpet or hardwood floor and the hotel is accessible via a sky bridge. The mall attracts nearly 40 million people per year, with visitors coming as early as 6 a.m.

"The Radisson Blu Mall of America is ideal for business and leisure travelers alike with world-class shopping, dining and entertainment just steps from our hotel's location near the Mall of America south entrance," says the hotel's website. "Hotel guests enjoy complimentary high-speed, wireless Internet access, fashion-inspired room designs and Anne Semonin bath products in all of our 500 guest rooms and suites."

This is the second Radisson Blu to open in the U.S., the first being in Chicago's Aqua skyscraper. Radisson Blu is under the ownership of Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, which is based out of Minnesota and owns the Radisson brand.

USA Today reported that there are two more Radisson Blu locations in the USA that are in the works.

"The company plans to convert two existing hotels to the Radisson Blu brand: The Radisson Plaza-Warwick Hotel in Philadelphia later this year, and the Radisson Plaza Hotel Minneapolis in 2014," reported USA Today.

The Radisson Blu properties are popular in Europe and are edgier than Radisson hotels in the U.S. Jim Hamilton of Graven Images designed the hotel in the Mall of America as well as the Radisson Blu in Chicago, reported USA Today.

"I loved the idea of the chair being called the Nest, so kids and adults alike could nestle inside and feel safe and slightly hidden from everything around them - like little chicks in a nest within the bigger more powerful drama of the lobby space outside," Hamilton said to USA Today.
