Park Inn Cape Town Foreshore

Both Business and Pleasure at Park Inn by Radisson

Visit this business-centric hotel that is ideal for the polished professional, but perfectly suited for the fun tourist too.

The idea of a three-martini lunch, and other such professional practices, may be outdated, but the Park Inn by Radisson Cape Town Foreshore is the kind of place where CEOs can either close a deal during a delicious power lunch, enjoy an evening networking at the rooftop bar, conduct a team-training workshop or have a good nights rest before a busy business day.

In other words, it caters for men and women in suits; the hotel is slick, sophisticated and, most importantly, it’s situated in Cape Town’s central business district (CBD). Both the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) and a collection of heavy-hitting business headquarters are a mere stone’s throw away.

Though highly appealing to business travellers, even tourists can appreciate the high-speed Wi-fi, swanky hotel restaurant and cosmopolitan rooftop bar. The stylish four-star hotel offers outstanding value for money, spacious standard rooms (nearly all of them have an expansive view of Table Mountain) and service that goes beyond the call of duty.

 “A hotel’s not just about bricks and mortar, it’s about the guest experience. Here, at Park Inn, we’ve built a reputation with regulars and corporates, and they return for the vibe,” shares General Manager Jim Schleich.

What kind of ‘vibe’ can you really expect from an accommodation largely geared toward managing directors and other executives? Well, funnily enough, a comfortable and contemporary one. Against all odds, this particular Park Inn has somehow managed to infuse a bit of funk into its normal day-to-day function.

It boasts the sky-high 11th-floor Harald's Bar and Terrace that serves up fashionable cocktails and scrumptious food. Unique little touches like multi-coloured coffee mugs and artisan light fixtures, add a playfulness fit and lighten up even the most sombre businessperson’s charcoal mood.

Most importantly, though, and as one Trip Advisor reviewer so aptly put, the staff don’t wear those fake, plastic-y smiles – they are genuinely happy to help.

“Everyone gets a buzz out of it [helping visitors], and that’s the crux of hospitality,” seconds Jim.

Needless to say, if you’re on the hunt for reasonably priced, well-located accommodation with a great atmosphere and a bend-over-backwards approach, the Park Inn is a brilliant Cape Town option.

Tip: The hotel offers complimentary transfers within a 5km radius. That means you can get to and from the ever-popular V&A Waterfront and the bustling Greenmarket Square for absolutely free!

Accommodation
Park Inn by Radisson boasts 120 spacious hotel rooms, including one-bedroom suites, business-friendly rooms, superior rooms, standard queen rooms and wheelchair-access rooms. The business-friendly rooms are interleading and are a great option for families who want to be as close as possible. All of the rooms boast high-quality furnishings – think plush carpets, handsome wood fittings and flat-screen TVs. The rooms also come complete with all of the amenities vital to making a stay in Cape Town comfortable and memorable: safe deposit boxes, a hairdryer, wireless high-speed Internet access and a minibar (stocked upon request). As if that wasn't enough laundry and babysitting can be arranged, and a kiddies’ activity book that’s Cape Town-focussed is available for little ones.

Conferencing
As a logical extension to its business-friendly ethos, the Park Inn also offers state-of-the-art conferencing facilities and a smart meetings mentality, which means that all of the meals that come with a conferencing package are specifically designed to keep both brains and bodies alert and energised.

In terms of space, the hotel’s 125sqm conference room is ideal for small- to mid-sized meetings and can be divided into two. A breakaway room is also available, audiovisual equipment is included and the adjacent Sunroof Terrace makes for an unrivalled place to take a breather or enjoy a post-conference cocktail or meal. A variety of conferencing packages are available, and you can work with the Park Inn staff to customise a package to suit your professional needs.

Location
The Park Inn is located in the heart of Cape Town’s CBD. It’s only steps away from the city’s train station and the primary MyCiTi bus terminal, and it’s also conveniently located within walking distance of the CTICC, the V&A Waterfront (15 minutes on foot) and the Artscape Theatre. Not to mention, The Mother City’s main nightlife on Long, Loop and Bree Street, as well as the bustling Greenmarket Square, are only a hop, skip and a jump away. Tourist hotspots like Table Mountain, Lion's Head, Clifton and Camps Bay beaches are within 10 minute’s drive.

Club Carlson for Business
As part of its bend-over-backwards approach, the Park Inn Cape Town Foreshore is part of the Club Carlson for Business programme. Membership is absolutely FREE, and participants not only get a discount on a standard nightly stay at any of the Carlson Rezidor brand’s properties but also accumulate points for stays that can be redeemed for rewards, like free overnights and redemption options on airline miles, PayPal and more.
