Radisson Blu Le Vendome Hotel opens in Cape Town
A new South African landmark for Carlson Rezidor
Radisson Blu, one of the world’s leading hotel brands, announces the opening of a new flagship Radisson Blu Le Vendome Hotel, Cape Town. The hotel is operated by The Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the largest hotel companies in Africa. The group now operates four hotels with 562 rooms in Cape Town.
Situated on the Atlantic Seaboard of Cape Town, the Radisson Blu Le Vendome Hotel is just a few minutes away from the city centre as well as the V&A Waterfront, and just footsteps away from the Sea Point Promenade. The hotel is in a well-heeled area of Sea Point that houses some of the city’s best clubs, shops and restaurants.
This landmark Radisson Blu hotel offers 143 rooms including 9 meticulously designed suites with exquisite views of Lion’s Head, Signal Hill, Table Mountain or the Atlantic Ocean. Guests can experience the best of meetings and events with a conference room that hosts up to 220 people, and is divisible into three separate equally sized venues. In addition, the hotel offers two smaller boardrooms which lead to an outdoor patio giving business travellers a breath of fresh oceanic air.
Food lovers can savour the best of South African cuisine infused with international influences at La Mer Restaurant and Grill, while connoisseurs can enjoy the region’s best wines and spirits at Cpoint. Bar and Lounge. For the cocktail lovers, there’s no better place to enjoy a cocktail or two other than at the #add Restaurant and Pool.
“I am truly excited to open this landmark hotel in Cape Town or as I like to call it, the Grande Dame. Radisson Blu Le Vendome brings the best of South Africa’s old charm into an innovative, first class hotel delivering truly genuine hospitality. We are exceptionally proud to have followed in the footsteps of our sister hotel Park Inn by Radisson Cape Town Newlands by employing a significant number of deaf team members, embracing diversity and showing respect and care for our communities.” - said Clinton Thom, General Manager, Radisson Blu Le Vendome Cape Town
“This is a great addition to the beautiful city of Cape Town and to our growing portfolio in Africa where we hold the largest pipeline of hotels.
