Nagpur is at the cusp of being 'relaxed' and 'getting onto the map of IT' destination. One prerequisite which was missing was a good hotel, where one could proudly recommend someone to stay. Radisson Blu is one such property, which is ideally located, value for money and has great service.
Nagpur has seen a transition of hotels over a decade from Center Point to Airport Center Point, Pride to Sun n Sand. But a hotel with decent global recognition was missing. Even though Sun n Sand also is a great property, being at a distance from Airport, that too away from the city, meant that it required an extra effort. Radisson Blu is ideally located at about 5 mins drive from Airport on the Wardha Road, towards the city. The Railway Station must be about 15 mins drive.
Coming to the property, it is a tastefully done business hotel, with a nice front desk. The layout of the coffee shop and the front desk is very well laid out. The rooms (even the standard one) are nice with ample space to move around. The toilet/bath area is nice and cozy. The standard rooms do not have a bath tub, but the business traveler wont miss it for sure ! I stayed in the standard room on Non Smoking floor and it had a lounger along with chairs and a center table. With so much additional furniture, the room did not feel cramped. The room also had a fridge and a weighing scale.
The hotel has a choice of restaurants - an Indian and a Chinese. If you happen to stay at Blu, the food at the Chinese restaurant is highly recommended. The food was simply awesome and so was the service ! The chef came all the way to us to know our exact requirements and made suggestions.
The hotel also has a spread of breakfast and separate live counters for veg and non veg. The spread is really exhaustive and its tough to really make a decision on what to miss. The 'Poha and Tarri' is something one would not want to miss at the breakfast.
The hotel also has a swimming pool and gym, which I did not use.
One area where the overall experience can be improved is the bed, which has a tendency to tilt to the side where one puts pressure and you get up with a discomfort in the back. I would have preferred a flat surface with appropriate cushioning.
The staff was very courteous and attentive and I could see that they were trained to go the extra mile to help the customer have a memorable experience.
Overall a very satisfying stay !
PS-They provide a space for accompanying drivers to stay.
