The Medellin Royal is associated to the Radisson chain. It is about 4 years old, thus very modern yet not luxurious. The hotel is on "El Poblado" neighbourhood, about 45 minutes from the Airport, near a mall, business buildings and walking distance to the "Milla de Oro" street, which has nice restaurants and shops; therefore an excellent location for a business stay in Medellin.
The rooms are overall very good size, with flat screen TV, a large closet and a desk with ethernet cable. My room was on the 7th floor with a nice view to the city and the mountains. Wi-fi is available on every floor and complementary at the lobby, and I always got very good signal. The bathroom layout is interesting as the lavatory sink is outside, with large mirrors, whereas the toilet and shower is on the room. There is no bath tub, which may be inconvenient if you are travelling with toddlers.
The restaurant is located on the second floor on an open area looking to the pool and although a bit small terrace, it does provide a good vibe to start up your day. I did not dine there, only had breakfast which offered a good mix of fruits, cereals, arepas, bread, juices, etc.
On the second floor there is also a small gym, open from 5 am to 10 pm, with a couple of elliptic machines and treadmills, weights and 3 spinning bikes. I was there in December and found the room quite hot, although I was the only one on the room. They also provide very small towels and in limited number, so I just got the last one available. Besides the gym there is also a Spa.
The best thing about this hotel is their staff: they are all very helpful and welcoming, always smiling and very friendly... many of them speak good English and are open to give suggestions and help in any way possible to all the passengers. Another great feature is that the hotel offers 2 complimentary drinks (beer, wine or juice) at the bar, every day from 5 pm to 7 pm which gives you a great way to refresh after coming back from work...
Overall I had a great experience at this hotel and I highly recommend you to stay here. It definitely is my choice for business trips to Medellin.
