We stayed at the Radisson Blu for 4 nights in late April 2013. This was our third stay at the Radisson Blu, but the first time we chose a business class room. The room was similar to the other rooms we’ve stayed (quite nice with all the amenities and a luxurious bathroom), but the extra perk of access to the executive lounge made all the difference. The lounge serves a Continental Buffet breakfast, including hot items and excellent coffee, with snack and soft drinks available throughout the day. A good selection of cocktails and nibbles are served in the evening, which makes for a great start to the evening. The staff in the business lounge are very friendly and professional. The lounge itself is on the cosy side, but it wasn’t overbooked and we were always able to get a table, no matter what time we were there. We also enjoyed the hotel lounge on the ground floor and have previously enjoyed some very nice meals in the ground level restaurant, BistroFax.
Amenities within the hotel are very good. The gym has ample machines and free weights. The lap pool is a fair size for the hotel, and are offset by a Jacuzzi-spa and steam room. There are also day-spa services available in this area, but we haven’t tried them.
The location of the hotel can’t be beat. It is about a 5 minute walk to Circular Quay, 10 minutes to the shopping and 15 minutes to Darling Harbour. Wynyard Station and the Airtrain are only about two minutes away. The NSW Art Gallery and access to the Domain are excellent.
We have stayed in 5 different hotels in the Sydney CBD and the clear cut winner for us remains Radisson Blu. It is smaller than the big box hotels and has a slight “boutique” feel to it. Service on all fronts has always been very good and we will definitely stay here again.
