Because I'd had an awesome first stay at this hotel, we chose it for our overnight hotel when we returned from another trip. We got to the hotel at 11:30 pm to find that our rooms had been given away despite us having booked the rooms 3 months in advance with a credit card guarantee. We needed 5 beds for 5 very tired women and the hotel only offered us two rooms with a bed each forcing us to share beds with each other and sleep on cots. This was a horrid end to our trip and I was livid. There were no apologies from the desk staff, just shoulder shrugs. In the morning we were offered the rooms at half price, which helped, but I would think twice before staying here again. When we book hotels for return flights from holidays we want comfort, peacefulness and a good sleep. We got none of these at the Radisson. What was the point in booking ahead? While I was prepared to go across the road to the Holiday Inn that night, my travel mates just wanted to stay and go to bed, so the majority ruled. I was not a happy camper. And campers we were on cots.
