I stayed here during a conference at USC. Given the bad reviews, I booked with some trepidation--but the $149 per night conference rate was good, and the other properties in the area (very few) seemed very sketchy. I feel I made the right decision. Check-in was easy and staff was pleasant. They pointed out that I'd be staying in a recently refurbished room, and so it was. Clean, bland, exactly like every other Radisson I've ever stayed in. What do people expect? Business hotels are uniform. They're not B&Bs with unique decor, folks.
The room came with free wireless on the USC network. I logged in once, and it remembered my laptop each time after that. It was super-fast, a big plus. As always, I used it only for email and Web surfing. Anyone who does online banking from a hotel connection is asking for trouble. There are two log-in possibilities. Go for the first one; the second one requires a password.
The tub area has obviously been fitted with a tub-surround. Watch as you step in -- the base is much higher than it seems! Also, when showering, you'll need the handhold as the new surface is still slippery.
It's true that the elevators badly need fixing up. However, they do work. Breakfast at McKay's restaurant was reasonably priced and tasty (McKay's is part of the hotel but across the driveway). My only problem was the noise that erupted after midnight from the USC basketball fans who'd parked in the deck behind the hotel--I guess their team won because they honked horns and screamed. But the noise wasn't the hotel's fault, and in fact the room was totally quiet--no sound leaking from adjacent rooms or floors above or below.
