Me and my wife stayed at this hotel for a mini-vacation from October 3 - 7 (4 nights). I chose this hotel after considering several other hotels in the area, and my choice was primarily from the reviews that I read here on TripAdviser and other websites. So I hope my review will help others.
FIRST - although several reviewers talk about the "free" breakfast, that is a misperception. The breakfast buffet in included in some of their packages, but it is not in all packages. If you want breakfast to be included in the deal, be sure you reserve the appropriate package. Based on the price differences that I saw, breakfast (plus a "complementary" drink from the bar) adds on an extra $10/night/guest. If two of you are staying, then that's $20 extra per night.
Having pointed that out about breakfast, I will say that it was good. I had breakfast three mornings, and each morning the eggs were served a different way. It was a pretty complete hot buffet, eggs or omelet, potatoes, waffles/french toast, and many other items to round out the meal.
Room amenities were very nice. I stayed in a suite, and it included large jacuzzi tub, microwave and refrigerator, coffee machine, two large screen LCD TV's, complementary bottled water, nice bed. Free wifi.
Location - about 5 miles from the airport. There is a 7-11 convenience store a block away. The Airplane Restaurant is right in front of the hotel (I didn't eat there, but it is interesting looking to say the least). If you stay on the 2nd floor you should have a good view of the mountains. I stayed on the first floor and got a view of a road and some trees, but this did not bother me as I usually close my curtains for privacy anyway. If you are staying in Colorado Springs to visit the AF Academy, that is on the north end of the city and you might prefer to find a hotel in that area instead of the south area that the Radisson is in.
Restaurant - I already described breakfast. Lunch and dinner can be purchased in the same restaurant. Ate dinner there twice, the prices were fair but I was not very impressed with the food. However, the wait staff are friendly and provide great service. If you receive coupons for complementary drinks, you can take them to the bar or ask for them with your meal.
Fitness room - I worked out in the fitness room my first morning. That was a mistake - I am partial to altitude sickness and that first workout exacerbated it. Be aware, Colorado Springs has an elevation of > 6000 ft. Some people do not tolerate the altitude well. But back to the fitness room - it contained several treadmills, a few eliptical machines, and one weight-based nautilus-type machine. Nobody else was there while I worked out, so it was pleasant to have the room to myself. The swimming pool is adjacent to the fitness room.
Noise level - some reviewers complain about noise from the hallway thru their entrance doors. I did notice that the doors are not great at blocking noise. Not really any worse than I 've seen in the majority of other hotels I've stayed. The suites are at the end of the hallways, so traffic levels are minimum. I had no problems with noise bothering me.
Overall - nice. Very nice. I would stay there again.
Suites are at the end of the halls, quietest locations for the rooms.
