Viola!!! What a view…I would loved to be @ the room sitout for ever watching the sea of people and lovely dogs walk, cycle and jog past. Needless to say the USP of this property is the view it offers as it overlooks the Promenade des Anglais. So definitely opt for Sea View Rooms watch the different shades and moods of the Mediterranean Sea at various hours of day.
Check in is smooth and fast, we requested for higher floor rooms but we were not obliged as they were running full house on Easter weekend.
Rooms are very spacious and well appointed, but watch out the towel and toiletry refills are far from sufficient despite requests. Hard to believe that Radisson is cutting corners, so I think necessary for management to look into these details to ensure guest comfort.
Breakfast spread is superb with plethora and choices. The staff is very cordial, attentive and friendly. They prepare some excellent omelets on request which is part of buffet, but if you ask omelets with tomatoes and cheese, they use tomato puree, which is indeed different and yummy. It would noteworthy to mention here they churn out excellent brownies. Patisserie output is another wow factor of this property.
Property is very close to airport, I guess about 2 Kms or so. Suggest it would be nice gesture on part of hotel to have regular fixed time shuttle service to airport and city center. It would be pertinent to share here that city center is about 4.5 Kms walk, so folks who do not like walking would have use a bus or cab to get there. There is a well stocked Carrfour Express counter just the lane behind for any immediate needs.
Now let me get to the unpleasant part of our four days stay. Avoid the Concierge desk if you have an option. They are curt and to the point and do not indulge in any extra conversation. Infact, when we asked the question “How do we get to Monte Carlo”. Concierge desk replied “what is this type of question”. I was aghast and wondering if I had said something incorrect, then I reframed my question asking “How do we get to Monte Carlo using public transport” The person handed over a sheet of paper, which ofcourse just no info as to how reach Monte Carlo but how reach railways station (with incorrect direction of bus and bus no) and Le Port. We understood at that moment that they were only interested in providing facilitation to guest who wishe to book cabs/taxis. Our next encounter with Concierge desk was no better, when we asked the person to get us a cab to the airport. He checked outside and found none and vanished into thin air. After a couple of minutes another person replaced him, who ofcourse took the effort of asking us what help we needed. We mentioned we had requested for help for arranging a cab about 5 minutes back, he retorting back there was mis-communication and went fetch the cab. It was little hard for us to understand, nevertheless we got the cab.
I would select a property closer to the city center overlooking Promenade des Anglais as there are many options w.r.t. well known chain hotels.
