Loved my stay here. Very new with great design of rooms. The morning breakfast buffet was delicious. The location is great as well. Did not try any of the restaurants but had room service which did not disappoint. Get one of the high floors where you get a fabulous view. Not my last time here.

This is my second time at The Radisson, it is a lovely hotel. Staff are polite, the rooms are a good size & they gave us a complimentary, early check-in which we were really grateful for. This was the first time I had breakfast there & I wasn't overwhelmed - I will not take the breakfast option in future.

The customer service at the hotel is very good. The only exception was the consigner, who didn't seem well informed at all. He was really more like the bell staff. We were asking about local attractions and he didn't have any specific information about operating times, cost of taxi fare or directions. Just kept saying "it's open". The waitresses and... More

Great hotel and great service but sadly marred by witnessing a hooker doing business at the bar; it goes on - but not in my face or when there are families with children near by. For a higher end hotel this isn't acceptable and needs to be dealt with.
