This site is on the strip next to Andy Williams' Moon River. It's position allows you to "escape" out on the back roads so you aren't stuck on the strip with the strip's traffic.
It is the largest hotel in Branson. If you combine both Hiton's they do have more rooms. But when you count what a single building has for rooms, this one is the biggest. And they have TONS of parking. They even have room for buses and full-sized pick-ups pulling larger boats. So bring your boat, it's only a 15 minute drive to the boat launch on Tanneycomo to get that 40 pound brown trout swimming at the base of Table Rock Dam. No joke on the 40 pound brown that the MO officials claim is swimming there.
So far, I would say the Hilton is the best place in Branson period. But the Radisson is right up near what the Hilton offers and the Radisson is usually about $20/night less than the Hilton. Pick-ups with boats might find parking at the Hilton more challenging than at the Radisson. The Radisson has been spending major bucks updating the place. The rooms are fantastic, the beds are second to none. The place is quiet like you're the only guest in the house. They don't have the convention center next door, but they could handle a class of 200 to 300 people setting at tables in their larger room.
The Hilton is next to the Landing and Convention Center and the Radisson is on the strip. So if you'd like to be near the shows and still be able to easily go somewhere else, the Radisson is great and you won't be disappointed. The service at the Radisson, like the Hilton, as an attitude of looking for ways to serve. There was no shortage of people willing and able to help. And I watched an employee run to push the elevator call button for a guest coming in with full hands - even though she never asked for help. Really great attitudes.
The breakfast was fresh, hot, and huge. The recreation areas were closed when we stayed as part of the total remodel of the property, so I didn't rate the "spa" portion.
The hotel has a sales desk in the lobby that will get tickets for you to any show in Branson that isn't already sold out. A word of warning - The Dixie Stampede sells out in advance almost all of the time so buy your tickets in advance. No the tickets aren't free, you do have to pay for them. But you can just head down to the lobby and they'll deal with it for you.
The wi-fi worked great. I was able to get all of my work done that I needed to do.
I had five of my seven kids with me on this stay. This was one of those sites where they were all asking how soon can we come back!
The top floor is all suites and you need a room key from that floor to access it from the elevator.
