I was about to skip the review of this hotel, as it is Radisson. To me Radisson is always the same. Very high standard, I've never been disappointed. But I guess I should review it, as it could help someone.
Here it goes: Very clean rooms, comfortable beds (BIG pillows) and a fair bathtub. An interesting feature was the walls of the bathroom, which were made of glass. We were two friends staying in the room and well.. we got to see new sides of each other.
The breakfast buffet was amazing! The hotel also provided a shuttle service to the main attractions in the area, which felt good to me since I spent my first hours in South Africa at the Radisson and did not now where to go, what to see or how safe it was to move around. There's a nice pool at the terrace, but I couldn't really go in to it as there was a lot of businessmen sitting around.
The location of the hotel is superb, with the Gautrain station just across the street, from where you reach the airport in 15 minutes. If you like shopping, the huge Sandton City shopping center is also really close to the hotel.
