The building that Radisson Blue Hotel now stands was basically finished more than a decade ago. It was idle for many years for a number reasons.
First reason I heard was the building is not structurally safe. The structure is too heavy for the lot.
Then, I read in the news, it was because of the financial crisis that hit Asia back in the late 1990s.
I also read that SM Investments could not find suitable partner to manage a hotel with 5 star hotel expertise.
Radisson Blue is considered to be the first 5-star hotel in Cebu City.
This hotel has 400 rooms and suites.
Radisson Blu is located just beside SM City Cebu.
