Radisson Blu takes over Le Vendome Hotel


Carlson Rezidor has announced that it will be opening the Radisson Blu Le Vendome Hotel Cape Town in South Africa within the next six months.

A local landmark formerly known as Hotel Le Vendome, the 143-room property is undergoing renovation and refurbishment in order to be re-positioned as one of Cape Town’s leading upper upscale addresses. The Radisson Blu Le Vendome Hotel brings Carlson Rezidor’s Cape Town portfolio to five hotels in operation and under development.

“All across the African continent we now operate and develop 53 hotels, and we will grow further – the emerging market of Africa is one of our most important regions for future business development,” said Wolfgang Neumann, President and CEO of Rezidor.

The Radisson Blu Le Vendome Hotel is located in the popular area of the Platinum Mile in the suburb of Sea Point. It is only 50 metres away from the Sea Point Promenade and two kilometres from the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Cape Town’s city centre and Table Mountain are located within a five kilometre radius of the hotel, whilst the distance to the airport is 25 kilometres.

Besides the 143 rooms, including 14 suites – all with Radisson Blu signature services such as free high-speed Internet access – the hotel offers more than 400m² of bar and restaurant facilities including an all-day dining restaurant with terrace and a bar, 290m² of meeting space including a sub-divisible boardroom and two smaller meeting rooms, as well as an outdoor swimming pool. A gym will be added during the refurbishment works.
