Skyscraper Slumbers – The Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence
THE RADISSON BLU HOTEL & RESIDENCE, CURRENTLY THE HIGHEST RESIDENTIAL BUILDING IN THE MOTHER CITY, IS AN ULTRA-SLEEK LANDMARK DESIGNED TO CATER TO THE MODERN AND SOPHISTICATED TRAVELLER.
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.
