Who said a weekend in the city isn't fun?

This past weekend I spent two days at the Radisson Blu Gautrain in Sandton City.
The hotel is perfectly located within the business and shopping districts which are just a few steps away from the hotel. 
Whether you are planning a business trip or a shopping spree, then the Radisson Blu is the perfect place to stay at.
The Business Class suite is not your typical cramped hotel room. The space is extremely generous, offering a luxurious bathroom, study area, lounge and one breathtaking panoramic view of Sandton.
While staying in the Business Class suite, we were treated to our very own Nespresso machine, lindt chocolates on our bed and a handcrafted Mocca cake with a personalised welcome note from the Radisson Blu team. 
The bathroom was stocked with various toiletries from the brand "This Works." I really appreciate hotels that offer good quality skincare and toiletry products for their guests. The bath also had a beautiful view of the city and made for a very relaxing environment, despite being in the middle of the city. 
The hotel has one restaurant called Capital One, which is spilt into two. The Capital One Bar is on the pool side of the hotel, while Capital One Restaurant is located adjacent to the bar, overlooking the tall skyscrapers of Sandton. 
Arriving at the hotel around 5pm, we had to have sundowners at the Capital One bar next to the pool and enjoyed the picturesque African sunset. The cocktail menu is specialised and unique to the hotel, making it exciting to try new drinks. We also enjoyed a typical South African snack platter, which was named the "Dry Platter" and consisted of nuts, popcorn, chips and biltong. 
There are many restuarants that are walking distance from the hotel but we opted to stay indoors and enjoy everything that the hotel has to offer. Therefore, we had dinner at the Capital One Restaurant. The food is tasty but the portions are extremely small for what the restaurant charges. The service was not the best either, from having the table dirty and the waiter annoyed to clean it up to also having extremely slow service when trying to order our meals, I'm not to sure that I would eat dinner here again. I do love the convenience of having a restaurant inside the hotel, however I would expect it to be of the same standard as the hotel itself. Needless to say, the buffet breakfast that is offered at the hotel is really delicious and the variety offered is endless! I love a hearty breakfast and the hotel's breakfast certainly made up for the mediocre dinner.
Overall the stay was pleasant. I think this hotel is in a prime location for those who want to stop by for a drink to avoid the rush hour traffic or for those who need to quench their thirst after an extreme shopping spree in Sandton City, but most importantly, I think this hotel is the best for those on business. It is centrally located and directly across the road from the Gautrain station, where you can hop on the train and jet off to work in minutes.
