    • 6.0.Good

      People at the front desk when checked in and out weren’t overly friendly. I felt like they were just doing a job. Air conditioning in the room was set at 62. Condensation from the air conditioning made the carpeting damp. Room smelled damp. Also some of the grout was missing from the bathroom floor. The person at the front desk seemed indifferent until I mentioned the missing grout.

      Our room smelt musty, and very dark box feeling on the first floor, asked to change rooms front desk staff was very nice & accommodating put us on 3rd floor. Smell in new room much improved but still very dark & box feeling room. Room was clean, but common areas, elevator floors and carpets not clean very worn. Had plans of using the fitness center, did not due to extremely small room and floor not clean very few weights and room to due any thing. Outside of facility could use some upkeep.

      The WiFi was out the entire night and I was unable to work. Reported outage to front desk and they had no idea how to resolve. It’s a conference center for Christ sake….

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      We had stayed at this hotel several years ago when it was a Holiday Inn. As for the cleanliness, staff service, in room refrigerator, microwave and single serve coffee pot, location, nothing had changed except the name. Due to the pandemic, they no longer offered anything other than coffee in the dining area. You can purchase food items from them to microwave in your room. It was lacking an alarm clock and as for towels, there was two of each. No extras. Since there was only two of us, that worked out okay. There was only one bar of soap to use at both the sink and the shower. The tub/shower and toilet was in one room while the sink was right inside the door to the room. The did supply adequate amenities such as shampoo, conditioner, hand lotion and hand sanitizer. Everything worked out great for our one night stay but if we had to stay longer, it would have been great to have a few more towels.

      Room below expectations!

      Room noise was terrible at night! I could not pinpoint the "dripping" noise at night. Good thing I was able to turn up sound on music channel and cover my eyes with a towel to block light. I expected a lot more from Radisson and a facilty rated as a 3. For couple dollars more I could have stayed at the Hilton or Hampton. People were good and check in was very good.

      Horrible! No breakfast, no restaurant, no pool, no laundry service, no maid service. The poor girl at the desk was doing it all including washing the towels. Take it off your website if you aren’t going to provide it or at least discount the price! We will never go back!

      Staff was extremely friendly, very convenient location, everything comfortable and clean, only issues were some loose tiles in bathroom floor and shower made creaking sounds. Would definitely staff there again!

      It looked suspicious - like a remodeled super 8. Not nice for the price. Bed was comfortable. Crust around the bathtub. No bar soap available in the room - hello it’s a pandemic! I’d like to wash my hands! Some of the stuff acted like they didn’t want to be there. Understand they are understaffed.
