I travel a lot for business and overall I loved the Radisson in Johannesburg - some of the good points were
- really nice rooms with spacious bathrooms and a long desk for working at
- best gym I've ever had in a hotel (probably because it's a commercial gym as well, but it's really spacious with every machine you could ever want)
- spa in the hotel was nice
- location was good for me and close to my office, but the area in general seemed very safe. The hotel also offers a shuttle to Mandela Square which I didn't get the chance to use, but is nice to have the option
- Restaurant staff were lovely and the meals we had there were very nice
- Pool area is gorgeous
Some irritating points:
- The wifi is TERRIBLE. If you only need to check emails, it's fine, but don't bank on using it for anything more.
- I would avoid getting drycleaning done here. I went out for the day and when I arrived back (8pm, 2 hours after clothes were due back) only half of my clothes were in my room. I rang housekeeping who told me that all clothes had been delivered for the day, but they would check if there was anything leftover. I heard nothing and had to call a second time where they told me they had found my clothes. Thankfully a while later they did deliver a box to my room, but it was a little strange. The following day (on the way to the office) I realised that I hadn't packed my jeans, they hadn't been brought back to my room. I had to ring the hotel again to ask them if they had them. Housekeeping did locate them and I had to detour back to the hotel to pick them up. Again, no apology and I got a very disorganised and disinterested feeling from the staff involved.
Overall, a superb hotel facilities-wise
