With 236 rooms, the hotel splits its focus between business and leisure travelers, but its location poses some concern for the latter. Unlike hotels downtown, guests of the Rad Blu will have to use public transportation or cabs to get to most of the major attractions in the city. This neighborhood offers little in the way of food, drink, or entertainment at the moment, and although that could change in the future, it is the reality today. Guests should expect to spend most of their time outside the hotel in distant neighborhoods.
Apparently, the lobby at Radisson Blu Oslo can be a dangerous place. The Daily Mail reports that King Otumfo Osei Tutu II, who was visiting the Norwegian capital for a conference, had a suitcase full of crown jewels stolen from right under his nose in the lobby of the hotel, where rooms start at around $279/night.
Not too much else is known, save for the obvious fact the 62-year-old Ghanian king is pissed.
Though if it's any consolation, ex-Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell had, like, the exact same thing happen to him at a Marriott. And let's not forget the £1 million emerald ring that went "missing" from a Four Seasons bathroom.
These things happen!
What pops into your head when you think of a New York-inspired hotel room? Turquoise carpeting? A Nespresso coffee machine? Black walls? We only ask because those are the three main features that make up the newly-unveiled "New York Mansion" business class rooms at the Radisson Blu Brussels. Now, we know Brussels has the whole mood ring hotel concept down pat. But, New York? We're not so sure.
These rooms are supposedly going for "sophisticated," but we can't help feeling the design is a little all over the place. That armchair? The bedspread? The clashing headboard-wall combo? The only New York vibe we're getting from this room is its size (small).
