Hotel Radisson Blu Nantes is housed in the impressive former Palace of Justice building in Nantes, an "artsy city on the banks of the Loire" (Lonely Planet). The Passage Pommeraye, a 19th-century shopping arcade full of elegant boutiques, is five minutes' walk from the hotel, and the impressive moated Castle of the Dukes of Brittany is less than 15 minutes' walk away.
For panoramic views of the city, head to the top of the 144-metre-high Brittany Tower, a 10-minute walk from the hotel. The curious Machines of the Isle of Nantes are 20 minutes' walk away. These giant mechanical animals are inspired by the invented worlds of Jules Verne, the mechanical universe of Leonardo da Vinci and Nantes's industrial heritage.
With funky designer furniture and a chequered tiled floor, the À Partager Restaurant & Bar serves a selection of French-inspired sharing dishes and a range of cocktails to accompany. The hotel's other dining option is Dans le Noir, where meals are served in darkness to encourage diners to focus on their food's taste, smell and texture. Dans le Noir is open on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Rooms are decorated in contemporary styles and have free Wi-Fi.
