I stayed at the Radisson for several nights while I was in Dakar for a conference. It is really a stunning property -- sleek and sophisticated. I have to admit I expected snootiness from the hotel staff since that often accompanies the super-modern high-end aesthetic, but in fact the staff were lovely.
I was staying at the hotel on my birthday, and I'm not even sure how they knew that (maybe I provided it when I signed up for their loyalty program?) but they brought me a really nice cake on the day. AND--not only did the front office folks wish me a happy birthday, but when I wandered down to the bar later to buy a bottle of water, somehow the bartenders also knew it was my birthday and sang to me! It was really kind of awesome. My other non-birthday-related interactions with the staff were pretty uniformly great.
I didn't like the room I was initially given on the first floor because it had a view of an A/C unit, but they did move me to a higher-level room on the 2nd day that was much better and had a great view of the pool and ocean.
All of my colleagues were very jealous of my hotel, so I think it compares very favorably to others in the area.
