Business travellers making the journey to Antwerp will be well catered-for by the luxurious facilities offered by the Radisson Blu Antwerp. Located directly across from Antwerp Central Station, the city’s major train station, this architecturally striking hotel is an ideal venue for professional visitors, offering two floors of conference facilities, including 18 meeting rooms, a ballroom and a business centre.
It is possible to reach Antwerp Airport Deume in approximately 15 minutes or Brussels International Airport in around 34 minutes, making it ideal for those liaising with international business contacts. It also provides easy access to the Diamond District and fashion quarter.
Meanwhile, the meeting facilities themselves are also perfect for business use, with the ballroom holding up to 600 guests, and the business centre providing amenities such as free high-speed, wireless internet and modern audiovisual equipment. Once away from their business engagements, visitors can retire to their luxurious rooms that have been recently refurbished and redesigned by Michael Graves. They provide a high level of comfort and convenience, with standard features such as free Wi-Fi, individual climate control options, coffee and tea provisions, and a flat-screen TV. Furthermore, they can unwind with a delicious meal at the Square Brasserie and Terrace – which offers a seasonal chef’s menu crafted from fresh ingredients – or head off to the state-of-the-art fitness centre and its indoor pool and jacuzzi.
One particularly noteworthy aspect of the hotel is Aquatopia, an on-site aquarium populated by more than 10,000 fish and reptiles. Watching the staff feed sharks can be a perfect way of unwinding after a busy day – or an unusual environment in which to form a better rapport with a colleague or a contact. With nightly rates starting from €83, the Radisson Blu Antwerp offers outstanding value for money for an incredibly well-equipped hotel experience. Those booking up to 28 days in advance can get an even better deal by taking advantage of the venue’s 20 per cent discount offer.
