I booked the Radisson through Hotwire and when I saw the hotel name my jaw dropped. Based on the TripAdvisor reviews I was terrified to stay there - thinking the worst.
When I checked in I let the front desk clerk (Karan) know my hesitation to stay. I did almost eat the room and stay elsewhere. The Radisson in it's day was a great hotel. It is an older hotel but from my experience they are trying to provide a decent stay for the price. No it is not the Hyatt or Marriott downtown but it is a decent hotel. No bugs, furniture in fair shape, number bed interesting. Yes the room doors do not go to the floor and you can hear all the comings and goings in the hall. And if someone above you chooses to move furniture, you hear that too.
Would I stay again - possibly for an overnight. Not for an extended period of time. I have a favourite in the area and they are less than the Radisson.
As I mentioned, Karan did his best to make sure I had a good room and was comfortable. The cafe clerk did her best to make me a nice latte when I left.
