I usually stay at the Sheraton when I come to Montevideo for business. I work with a new company and the my new customer has an office right in the same plaza as the Radisson so the sales rep booked me there.
Kind of a weird thing - the front building is an apt complex and the back building is the hotel but the lobby shares both buildings. My room was on the 14th floor. The room was large and the bathroom was large as well. My first thought was that the room needs to be refurbished because it is old looking. The bathroom and general bedroom were clean. Carpet didn't look very clean. The bed was large and comfortable.
Here were my issues:
The heat is central and controled in the lobby. My room was way too hot and the windows where locked. I had to call someone up to unlock the window so I could have some air. That solved one problem but the wind whipping around the buidling makes this noise. My coworked had more of a problem with this noise than I did.
The only place to eat dinner in the hotel is the casino. It is just big and impersonable. I asked for a salad and the lettuce in it was wilted and old looking. I sent it back but the waitress never offered me anything else. She defended the lettuce. The staff really needs better training.
I went to the lobby to check out and several people just ignored me. Finally, this guy appeared from the back and helped me. That was after two people came from the back and walked away. They could have called to this guy to come out and help me.
When I arrived at the hotel, there were 3 hotels guys in the front and not one of them helped me with my luggage into the hotel. I don't know what they were hired for???
The breakfast is ok. In my travels in Latin America, breakfast in Uruguay/Argentina isn't as substantial or festive as in other areas in Latin America. They needed better bread and better trained staff.
This didn't feel like a Radisson Hotel. Anyway, if you want to be in the middle of Montevideo and you can get a good price, then this will work.
