Decided to take a chance on a Wotif Mystery deal for a monday night date night and found ourselves booked in to the Radisson Blu. Despite saying that we would arrive about 5pm,when we rocked up at 2,everything was ready for us to check in. We enquired about the possibility of upgrading to a club level room and the value for $$ offered for 2 people was unbeatable - room upgrade/drinks & canapés that evening/buffet breakfast the next morning.
The room was lovely,the location of the hotel means the view from the window is nothing to write home about however the room was spacious,the bed sizeable and comfortable and a bathroom with a deep bath and the best water pressure in the shower of any Sydney hotel I have stayed in.
The club lounge itself was lovely,again it lacks the view of some other hotels however this is reflected in the room price. The spread available in the evening was very high quality,sufficient that we didn't need to go out for dinner afterwards,and Julie,who was looking after us was outstanding,attentive,courteous,friendly - standout staff member.
Had a wonderful sleep,very little noise from outside and room achieves almost total blackout. Breakfast was a standout,again superb range available and excellent quality. We did go and check out the gym/pool/spa - the gym wasn't accessible that day as new equipment was being delivered,however had a pleasant swim in the lap pool (maybe slightly warm for the serious swimmers) and the skylight over the jacuzzi is a nice touch. Towels also provided at the pool.
All in all I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay city central without the price tag of some of the Circular Quay establishments. Valet parking was efficient and $40 for the night which compares well with some other hotels.
