Where art deco meets con­tem­po­rary de­sign, the in­te­rior of the Radis­son Blu Ho­tel & Res­i­dence is some­what rem­i­nis­cent of Catcher Block’s apart­ment from the post-mod­ern rom-com

Down with Love. Gold trim­mings, sim­plis­tic fur­nish­ings, and a colour pal­ette of navy blues, greys, and whites give the ho­tel a re­gal air of sim­ple so­phis­ti­ca­tion, while views of ei­ther the har­bour, moun­tain, city, or sea put the fin­ish touches to this up­mar­ket ho­tel res­i­dence.

Of course, what would Catcher Block’s apart­ment be with­out its gad­gets? All of the ho­tel’s 224 rooms come with up­scale ameni­ties such as a Smart TV and free ac­cess to high-speed Wi-Fi. In the busi­ness-class rooms, the mini-bar is stocked with com­pli­men­tary re­fresh­ments so you can con­ve­niently en­joy a cold one in your room af­ter a stress­ful Skype meet­ing.

BUSI­NESS AS USUAL

Sit­u­ated on the cor­ner of Riebeeck and Long Street in Cape Town’s fore­shore, the ho­tel is within easy walk­ing dis­tance of all the city’s main tourist at­trac­tions, and just a kilo­me­tre away from the Cape Town In­ter­na­tional Con­ven­tion Cen­tre (CTICC), mak­ing it the ideal lo­ca­tion for both busi­ness and leisure trav­ellers. For those who want to ex­plore the area, there is also a com­pli­men­tary shut­tle ser­vice to the V&A Wa­ter­front that runs ev­ery hour on the hour.

Suits and ties are not an un­usual sight at this bustling ho­tel res­i­dence, so there is no need to feel out of sorts if you hap­pen to be there for busi­ness pur­poses.To ac­com­mo­date the many busi­ness­peo­ple who fre­quent the ho­tel, a state-of-the-art

ex­ec­u­tive busi­ness lounge and a range of mod­ern meet­ing and con­fer­ence rooms – all fea­tur­ing the lat­est tech­nol­ogy and ameni­ties – are avail­able for book­ings.
