The common areas (pool, cabana, fitness center, lounges) are somewhat nicer than the rooms. I felt like the carpet was a bit dirty and the walls, doors, and door frames in my room could have used a good cleaning. Service was average. Price is way too high for what you get.

Very terrible hotel, not clean at all. Internet in our room was extremely slow. One bed without bed sheets, snot on one bed. Supervisor didn't want to come to the room even though we've asked twice. Checking in took very long. Also the rest of the hotel was very dirty. Never go there again, terrible.

I would actually say it was good not average or very good. Pool closing at 10 even on the weekends is a very big disappointment. Also some of our groups rooms were not ready at check in time which I find very unsatisfactory. Almost always you can get in early. Not here! But rooms were great and staff exceptional!

Stayed at the Radisson for the NSA World Series with my wife and 3 kids. Our entire organization was very pleased with the experience. Clean rooms, decent space. Love the atrium and pool areas. Very friendly staff.

I would not stay in the hotel if I were in the area again. The price is outrageous for the reward! Fridge was dirty, room walls were kinda stained - glad we had a group discount. Confirm what is for breakfast before staying-it was very bad. We were there for a softball tourney and it certainly was not a breakfast... More

Overall bad experience. Terrible breakfast buffet, No towels or toilet paper most days of stay and would have to track them down ourselves. Pool liner coming out of pool and no towels at the pool all 4 days. Just a bad old hotel that is not worth the money.

The Radisson was a grand hotel in its day. And I know they have done some renovation, however, there is sooo much more work that needs to be done. There isn't alot of attention given to the grounds. The rooms had small balconies with sliding glass doors, but it was so dirty that I didn't want to hang my pool... More

This is not the worst hotel I have ever stayed in for business travel, but it is certainly far from the best. Hotel is very dated, and frankly, there are much better options in the area for the same price.

Our check in started on a perfect note. Front desk friendly quick and extremely efficient . Hotel rooms are renovated but hotel still has a dated dark feel probably from long narrow hallways. Rooms are just so so. Could have been cleaner crumbs in corners and edges of sofa. Bathroom small. However our entire experience was overshadowed by experience with... More
