I have traveled to Lagos since the mid seventies and I have seen the city grow in both size and choice of accommodation. The choice is, now, exsensive although it comes at a price.
During my most recent visit I was lucky enough to stay at the Radisson Anchorage on Victoria Island. The hotel is close to the business center of Lagos and close to a few good restaurants and expat bars. Driving time to and from the airport can vary, greatly, depending on what time you depart.
The hotel itself is a modern design and has a number of eateries and bars. The riverside bar is particularly good and they serve a number of different local and import beers. The menu of spirits is quite impressive. Service is good but I fold the bar menu food to be disappoint with the food being bland and, at times, cold. The breakfast menu is extensive and must be in the top 5 available in Lagos. Everything from a full english to local - brilliant!
The rooms at the hotel are European standard and well appointed with good bathrooms, plenty of lighting. AC was ok but our rooms overlooked the emergency / hotel generator house which gave out a constant hum when not in use and an ear shattering roar when started and running.
Security is very good. Check in and check out took some time and the hotels electronic credit card system didnt work. Free Wifi in rooms and an ATM in the Lobby.
A very nice hotel in Lagos and if I get the opportunity I will stay there again.
