WHY TREESHAKE LOVES THE RADISSON BLU
Fast wifi with killer views.
Need we say more?
There is free wifi and the speed is much faster than your home or office ADSL. To be exact; 19,5mb download speed. See screen grab from SpeedTest below.
Come fully charged. The plugs are scarce. I tried to unplug a fan to use the power for my laptop. Alas. They seem to superglue their plugs. I did eventually find a plug.
What a great bunch. Friendly, prompt and a good sense of humour. After walking into a fan (not the one I tried to unplug) and it not only messing up my hair but also pulled out a lot of it, a number of jokes ensued from the bartenders. :)
The sound of the crashing waves, yachts and kayaks passing by, tourists sipping cocktails... it's a real work-cation. Is 10am too early to order wine? There's also plenty of shade, so you can sit and work outside without the sun messing with your screen.
Death Stare Factor
There was no issue or funny looks from the staff when the army of Macbooks arrived.
Food and Drinks
We only had coffee, which was good. #startupjuice The wine and cocktails looked good though.

HOW TO GET THERE
They have a parking lot at the hotel. It's not free though. There's always plenty of parking in Beach Rd. So, you won't have to park further than 50m away.
The 104 (Sea Point - Waterfront - Civic Centre) bus runs past the Radisson Blu. It's the yellow line. Get off at either the Mouille Point or Granger Bay stop.
There are guards everywhere on the premises. So, you'll be able to safely lock up your bike somewhere in the hotel's parking lot.
