The new Radisson Blu Hotel and Residence has opened its doors for locals and visitors to the Mother City.
General Manager Desmond O'Connor explains that the building consists of 23 storeys (11 for the hotel and 12 for the residential apartments).
The hotel itself consists of 214 bedrooms, three food and beverage outlets, various meeting spaces and other amenities and services, he says.
O'Connor advises that the property is a mixed-use space, accessible to Cape Town locals and maintains that there is an appetite for another five-star hotel in the city centre.
He says Capetonians are welcome to experience the space first-hand.
We are open to the public. That goes for the conference spaces, restaurants, pool deck area and bar. We'd hope that people in the CBD would frequent the Sea Street Bar and Lounge.— Desmond O'Connor, General Manager at Radisson Blu Hotel and Residence
They need to come and see it and understand that this five-star hotel is accessible to the general public, after all the property is an iconic landmark in Cape Town.— Desmond O'Connor, General Manager at Radisson Blu Hotel and Residence
The new Radisson Blu hotel and Residence is located in the foreshore area on the corner of Riebeeck and Long Streets.
The Radisson Blu Group currently has seven hotels in South Africa and plans to expand further in the years to come.
We're expanding our African footprint at a rate of knots.— Desmond O'Connor, General Manager at Radisson Blu Hotel and Residence
