Radisson Blu Hotel Cebu

20 November 2010 16,554 views 11 Comments

Finally! For a couple of years, Cebuanos have grown accustomed to seeing that vacant and unfinished hotel building beside SM City Cebu. There were talks of Sheraton Hotel or some other hotel brands opening on this side of the country but this never came to fruition. But within the last 2 years, this building has been busy as it was undergoing  major renovations.

Radisson Blu Hotel Cebu

And by September of 2010, Radisson Blu opened its first hotel in the Asia-Pacific region through the Radisson Blu Hotel Cebu branch. Radisson Blu Hotel Cebu officially opened its doors to the public last November 10, 2010. Through a friend, we got the chance to experience staying at one of Cebu’s most promising hotel.

Rooms

This hotel has 400 rooms ranging from deluxe, business class rooms and executive suites. Each room has wi-fi access available but when we were there, the wi-fi internet access was so bad.

All of the hotel’s rooms uses a memory foam bed paired with goose feather/down pillows and duvets. I  just didn’t like the smell of those pillows. For those with sensitive smell, you may not like the smell of those duvet pillows at all.

Feria Restaurant

Feri, a Roman word for “feast day” is Radisson Blu’s dining area. There’s a wide selection of food, freshly prepared for you to choose from. We never got the chance to taste their food though but the ambiance of the place will surely make you want to taste all the food prepared there. It is said that this restaurant serves Asian, Japanese and Mediterranean cuisine. The Feria restaurant is open from 6am to 11pm.

The hotel is still new in Cebu. Being situated just beside SM City Cebu and near famous Cebu landmarks and spots makes it an ideal choice for locals and tourists who want easy access to Cebu. The hotel also has very warm and accommodating staff who won’t fail to address any concerns you may have. Don’t hesitate to air out any issues you may have for they will surely address them immediately.
