Radisson Blu Plaza – A historic hotel, centrally-located and quiet.
Based in an old building that takes up most of an inner-city block, the Radisson admirably maintains much of its history and character despite recent major renovations. Corridors with plush carpets and ornate lampshades lead to the Superior Rooms with a colorful combination of gold-colored cushions, grey carpets, and blue sofas. The windows are original and offer street views, and the lovely bathrooms come with marble baths. Slightly more spacious, the Deluxe Rooms feature identical furnishings, golden wallpaper behind the bed, and small balconies. With an indoor pool, some interconnecting rooms, and the possibility of extra single beds, it’s a decent option for families. Located in a quieter part of the city, it’s walkable to transport, shops, and restaurants.
