Radisson Plaza Hotel and Suites Begins Multimillion-Dollar Renovation

Centrally-Located Kalamazoo Hotel Introduces Transformed
Guest Rooms, Social Spaces, and Restaurant

Kalamazoo, MI (September 8, 2021) – Radisson Plaza Hotel and Suites of Kalamazoo, MI recently launched a yearlong multimillion-dollar renovation project. Several spaces throughout the hotel will undergo a complete overhaul of look and feel, including but not limited to, the lobby and atrium, meeting and event spaces, guest rooms, guest floor corridors, and a new restaurant. Design elements will observe Radisson Hotel Americas’ brand pillars: balanced, natural, and delightful.

Centrally located in Downtown Kalamazoo and locally owned and operated by Greenleaf Hospitality Group, the Radisson is an upscale, full-service hotel that is dedicated to enhancing the guest experience. The essence of the new hotel spaces will be Scandinavian at heart, enabling guests to find more harmony in their travel experience and enjoy a positive and well-balanced environment.

Guest Rooms

The 338 Radisson guest rooms will strike the perfect balance between form and function. Each room will host a more intentional design – from materials used to layout of the space – with tasteful clean lines and attractive natural material. Muted tones will create a calming ambiance while sleek, minimalistic furniture provides more room without loss of functionality. Bathrooms will be designed to offer sanctuary and relaxation, featuring a rainfall walk-in shower and accent lighting. Updates will also include new in-room technology and entertainment as well as a mobile check-in experience.

Social Spaces

Social spaces on the lower level, lobby, and second level will feature an open, welcoming, and naturally calming ambiance with a style based on clean lines, soft textures, and contemporary materials. Practical spaces to work, socialize, and relax will contribute to a harmonious flow for visiting guests.

On-Site Dining

Brick and Brine, set to open in January 2022, will host three private event spaces, main dining room seating, and bar and lounge seating. The open-air concept, complete with sliding glass walls, will be the first of its kind in Downtown Kalamazoo. Brick and Brine will feature an intentionally forged experience speaking to both local and visiting guests’ desire for authentic conversation, savory dishes, and exceptional service.

“I’m thrilled with this next wave of investment that will update our look and feel for hotel and conference guests alike. The elevation of our spaces, in-room technology, and guest check-in process aligns with providing an unsurpassed hospitality experience, one we’re confident that guests will quickly take notice of,” said Chief Executive Officer, Tim Rayman.

The Radisson renovation is scheduled to be complete by the end of Summer 2022. Updates will be executed in a tiered approach so as to not affect guests’ current experience. To stay up-to-date on the latest developments, visit

Zazios Last Day of Service – Nov. 14, 2020

With a new year approaching, we’re excited to announce a new restaurant concept will be following suit!
Our Zazios team has spent the past 16 years making memories, celebrating, and most importantly, learning how we can best serve you – and we’ve loved every minute of it! While it is always sad to close one chapter, we are passionate about taking our experiences with you over the years and applying it to a brand new restaurant with a brand new concept in the year 2021.
Zazios, located on the Lobby Level of Radisson Plaza Hotel and Suites, will have our final day of service on Saturday, November 14, 2020. Our team will be temporarily shifting upstairs to continue collaboration with Webster’s Prime beginning November 17, 2020.
To ensure we continue to serve you, our local and traveling guests, Webster’s Prime will be featuring a steak, seafood, and grill focused menu. You will continue to see some Zazios favorites still available on the menu!
In the meantime, we invite you to dine with us at Zazios through November 14th to commemorate the many great years. Each week until closing, we are offering a unique tasting menu featuring Zazios classics and guest favorites. View this week’s $39 tasting menu at
During the development of the new restaurant concept and this transition, we will be keeping three priorities top of mind:
  • Guest Feedback: We listened to your feedback, we’re continuing to listen to your feedback, and it’s about time we use it in a big way!
  • Consistency: Both Webster’s Prime and Zazios share a common core value – consistency in offering a world class dining experience – and we promise to keep that top of mind.
  • Communication: There’s been a lot of change in 2020, and it can be hard to keep up. We are dedicated to keeping you in the know of what’s currently being offered, and what’s on the horizon.
We look forward to celebrating our last chapter as Zazios, and beginning a new one with you in the new restaurant during the Summer of 2021. Cheers!
– Your Zazios Team

March 14, 2020


PRINCETON, N.J. – On Saturday, the ECHL Board of Governors approved the cancellation of the remainder of the 2019-20 Season.

A statement from ECHL Commissioner Ryan Crelin:

The decision by the ECHL to cancel the remainder of the 2019-20 Season does not come lightly, as this is an emotional time for our Players, Coaches, Member Teams, Fans and Staff. At this point in the Season, there has been immense dedication and countless hours committed in moving towards what is traditionally the most exciting part of the hockey year.

With that said, however, as each passing day raises additional concerns for the safety of those in the ECHL community and as we take precautionary measures in conjunction with our local authorities across the continent to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, it has become apparent that this is the prudent decision. Our game and our product are based on our Fans and their ability to cheer on their favorite ECHL team and Players at one of our many facilities around the continent. Without that social environment and game atmosphere, the ECHL simply isn’t the same.

On behalf of the ECHL and our Board of Governors, we appreciate the Professional Hockey Players’ Association for their assistance during this unprecedented time and workings as partners in hockey to reach this decision for the best interest of the ECHL and its Players. This decision allows our Players the opportunity to return to their homes and removes the uncertainty that currently exists.

While we are hopeful that this period ceases and an opportunity to return to normalcy for the hockey calendar presents itself, in the interim, we ask all Fans, Players, Coaches, Officials, and Staff to continue to abide by the measures put in place by their local authorities and follow precautionary protocols for their safety, as we will begin preparations for the 2020-21 ECHL Hockey Season.

Please direct all media requests specific to the Kalamazoo Wings to Director of Public Relations/Broadcaster, John Peterson, at
