Radisson Blu, the legendary hotel chain marked by inventiveness and creativity, has opened a new branch in the Mother City – it’s 10th in the country. The Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence is situated on the corner of Long and Riebeeck Streets, a stone’s throw from the city’s prime tourist landmarks and only a kilometre away from the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC).
Consisting of 214 upmarket apartments, this is the first mixed-use property of Radisson Blu’s holding company, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, in South Africa. The hotel is also the tallest residential structure in Cape Town and has received numerous accolades for its distinctive architecture. The exquisite blend of ancient and contemporary building styles pay tribute to the Art Deco design genre, which can be seen in the hotel’s public spaces and, to a degree, its bedrooms. The city’s organic accents were incorporated into the hotel’s aesthetic, allowing for a tranquil and inviting atmosphere not often encountered in urban accommodation.
Given Cape Town’s rapidly reached status as one of the globe’s foremost conference and exhibition destinations, Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence will enjoy an inundation of working travellers. The residential amenity includes a cutting-edge executive business lounge and a variety of modernistic meeting and conference zones, each containing the most recent technological devices. The hotel also offers Radisson Blu’s trademark concept, The Stratus Room, which specialises in a dining experience that welcomes domestic fare and a dramatic take on service, as well as the rooftop Ghibili Pool Bar and Terrace, and the Sea Street Bar and Lounge where guests and visitors to the property can indulge in a drink or snack.
