Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, Oslo

Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, Oslo (also known locally as Oslo Plaza) is situated in Oslo city centre. At 117 metres (384 ft) tall, it is Norway's second tallest building.[1]

The building was designed by the architectural firm White.se and completed in 1989. The hotel was officially opened on March 14, 1990, by King Olav V of Norway. In 1992, a footbridge was built between the hotel and the Oslo Spektrum arena. The hotel was remodeled in 2012.[2]

The hotel has 37 floors and 673 rooms. There are a total of 1,500 beds, 140 business rooms and 20 suites. The tower's foundations are concrete, and it has reflective glass facades. The uppermost floors are tapered with a steep diagonal roof on one side, leading to a sharp ridge. It also has an external glass elevator, which travels up to the bar/restaurant at the top. A lower block, three floors tall, contains the entrance, a lobby, restaurants and conference rooms. On the thirty-third and thirty-fourth floors (the top of the building), there is a swimming pool and a sauna.[3][4]
