“Great downtown location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

A group of four of us stayed for 3 nights (July 17-19) and for the most part enjoyed our stay. The hotel was clean - from the lobby area through to the rooms. We had booked a two queen room... the room was on the small side for 4 adults (might work okay for 2 adults, 2 children). The bathroom was small with no bathroom fan, and as a previous poster stated the blackout blinds let light through so sleeping in is tough. Check-in had a bit of a snag as they had the wrong room for us, but after some quick work the desk person had it fixed up (he apologized over and over and was extremely helpful) - the bellman even came and moved our luggage to the next room, and it was only down the hallway (very helpful staff all around). We enjoyed the lounge a couple of nights for a drink and a few hands of black jack. Parking was convenient in the parkade next door. The thing we loved most about this hotel was that it was close to downtown and all the great restaurants and pubs in the area. All in all, a decent experience and we'll probably be back!

After staying at an above average place the night before, everything about this hotel seems average. Decent rooms, clean with all the basic amenities. However, if u like to sleep in, this is not the best place. The flimsy curtains let all the light in, making it impossible to sleep! The restaurant downstairs is not so great either.

Stayed two nights in this hotel since we were decorating & going to a reception that was taking place here. Reception hall was very nice & reception turned out beautiful. The kitchen staff & front desk was very nice & helpful. The room sections were where my complaints were. We found cigarette butts under bed. Luckily was found by an adult other then by the small children that were in the room. Our shower was so hot that there is no way anyone could of stood under it. Closet was hard to open. Rooms were tiny. And for the price you pay it would of been nice to have a atleast a small fridge/microwave in there. We has a ice machine pretty much outside are door, but when we went to use it, there was no ice. Just pretty inconvenient & destroyed for the price. We also were part of a wedding block but received no discount. Would never stay here again

This hotel is in downtown Bismarck and (llke the downtown area) seems to be past its prime. The lobby and other public areas have a 1970's look, and it's more like a three star place. Even the front door seemed to need some reconditioning. But our room was fine, with Sleep Number beds and other features of a typical Radisson hotel. Both the room and bathroom were small---the bathroom was especially tight. The room did have a few scuff marks and signs of age but overall was very comfortable. There may be nicer places to stay in the area, but probably not in the downtown area. The hotel is close to several good restaurants (5 minute walk or so), and this is a plus for staying downtown. The prices for the breakfast in the hotel restaurant were very reasonable. It's a pretty good value for the downtown location, but if you don't need to stay downtown, there may be nicer hotels in the Bismarck area.

I stayed at this hotel for three nights on business. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. They couldn't do enough to help you. The hotel is clean and seems to have been updated, but my and my colleagues all noticed a stale smell in our rooms. There was new carpet in the room and they hotel features sleep number beds in the rooms. Not sure I liked the sleep number bed, but it wasn't awful. I had one double bed with a pull out couch which was awkwardly situated in the room. The walls were not very thick as I could here the ice machine in the hallway and the guest in the room adjacent to mine snoring. There are train tracks that run through town about a block from the hotel, on which trains run throughout the night blasting their whistles with great frequency. We ate breakfast at the hotel. The service was very good as was the food. There are some really good restaurants within a few blocks of the hotel,

Room Tip: Request rooms away from the elevator and the ice/soda machines which are located in the hallway.

I stayed in this hotel on an unpleasant business trip. It is a classic downtown hotel in the capitol of North Dakota, and is within easy walking distance of the hospitals, district and city offices. Rooms face north, south and west.
It is a clean, well-appointed 9-story building, with an elevator to all floors. My room had an adjustable comfort bed. Otherwise, you will hear every single train that goes by, and believe me there are many noises to the south.
Without a doubt, the comfort and attention this hotel offers outclasses any other establishment in town:
1. Location downtown.
2. Handy parking garage, with complimentary parking and good security, although the door from the garage is not keyed into the lobby. That said, I never entered the lobby day or night, when there was not a security person there.
3. Exercise room, beautiful swimming pool, complimentary business center.
4. Complimentary wifi in the building.
5. Truly attentive staff, who are personally interested in representing the hotel as a place of hospitality. The morning desk clerk, Steve, went to extra lengths to help me with the use of the business center. Dave, the concierge, gave me lots of directions about the downtown, and other places in town. I was treated more like a family member than any place I have stayed in a long time, including some bed and breakfasts. This is the way it should be done.
6. There is a full-service restaurant, and a salon/spa as well, neither of which I sampled.
7. There are lots of things going on in downtown Bismarck, which is experiencing somewhat of a renaissance; the Radisson is at the center of this.

In summary, this is probably the best choice for the weary traveler in Bismarck, in all weather situations. It is neither budget or premium. There are many other choices in town, near the mall, near the Capitol and on the north side. The ambience and attention to detail you will get here, and the amazing views, are not available elsewhere. Even the housekeeper, John K., made sure to give me a welcome as I went out in the morning.

Room Tip: Floor one is the lobby, which has the business center, restaurant, and salon/spa. Pull up, regist...

I stayed here in April for business. The staff was very friendly, but seemed a little overwhelmed while checking everyone in. The elevator was very frustrating. The building has 10 floors, so if you missed it you could be waiting quite awhile. The room was clean and comfortable. The hallway on my floor had a very musty smell, but luckily it did not affect the smell of my room. The lounge was nice. Overall a nice stay.
