I live in PE, so take it from me, the Radisson really is ideally situated.

My Review of Port Elizabeth's Radisson Blu
The Radisson hotels are named after the 17th century French explorer and fur trader, Pierre-Esprit Radisson. In 1652, when Jan van Riebeeck was in the Cape setting up a refreshment station that would lead to the founding of this country, Radisson, only a teenager, had gotten himself captured by the Iroquois Indians on the other side of the world. He survived torture, was recaptured, escaped again and lead the sort of life that inspires others to name cities, streets and hotels after you. How many hotels do you know of that offer abseiling off the roof to their guests? Now you know why.
