We would normally have looked for something a little less generic than this when staying in a city for the first time, but the Radisson was decent, a typical location-hotel which towers at the edge of the city and gives you great views, at least from the side we were on.
The hotel has some impressive design history, and the lobby is suitably grandiose but warm and inviting, and there are plenty of staff; we never waited more than 30 seconds to speak to someone. The room itself was smaller than I expected, with normal doubles (not King Size). Radisson in Sweden (only just over the water) has some huge rooms by european standards, so this was surprising, but less so when you consider that it was built in the 60s. The furniture is nicer than most hotels, although a little tired in places - our window opened slightly but wouldn't stay open as the mechanism was broken. No AC which wasn't an issue for us at this time of year.
The bathroom was fine, fair sized tub and shower pressure; there had been an area missed when cleaning that we called them about and someone came and dealt with it promptly.
They have a set of bikes for rental at 14 DKK per day which is next to nothing, and it's a joy riding around the city. Copenhagen is fantastic for a weekend break and the Radisson is fairly well located; if you don't like making any effort whatsoever to be in the centre of town then it's not for you. When cycling around I recognised some of the other hotels I had seen online and many looked pretty mediocre, so for the price I was glad we went for a reliable brand.
I have seen some reviews with people complaining about dinner for USD$50 per head and $20 per day car parking...this isn't exactly cheap, but that's Europe. Copenhagen is expensive but in a short stay you're not going to see your costs being significantly higher than most other city breaks.
In summary, the rooms are small but the hotel obviously can't really change this so have made up for it in the other areas. We did not eat there but there are at least three restaurants, a good bar and a pool (which we did not have time to use either). If this you get a good deal on a room, then this place is a safe bet.
