“Modernist France captured in one hotel”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

France is a total contradiction, the most exquisite architecture from centuries past to the most avant-garde designs that dare to be different. The Radisson is certainly daring.
Let me start by saying I am not at all in favour of airport hotels, convenience hotels are mostly providing a barely adequte service. The staff don;t care as they're not aiming to be there long term. This is absolutely NOT the case here.
So I read the reviews of others of this hotel and their issues. I remind people this is a French hotel, it is NOT an American hotel. I asked the staff their typical clientelle demographics, less than 10% are American. The remainder are European. Europeans for the most part do not care about a gym. What do they care about is comfort and amusement. So this brings me to the restaurant. It is rare, no very rare to find a very good restaurant in a hotel. This restaurant deserves to be rated and considered individually. You however need to remember you're in a French restaurant, so if you're expecting that your plate is going to be covered with food then you're not familiar with true French restaurants, here the emphasis is on the true taste of food, the sauces are not there to hide the lack of taste in the other elements but to compliment what has been prepared. The meal was amazing.
If you're visiting from the US you need to look at this hotel from a different perspective, and if you do so you'll find this a memorable stay, appreciate the difference's and the quality that has been engrained in this hotel.

Great hotel, nearest to airport. A 4 + star hotel. Sadly no porter on hand other than that great rooms and staff. Food and service punching way above that of other 4**** hotels. Very nice design, lovely rooms with modern feel. Cleanliness of the highest order.

Room Tip: Business rooms facing the pool

Firstly, this is an airport hotel catering to those souls doing business nearby or passing through. Apart from the nearby Pullman, there's no competition at this price point (hence the title of this comment). The hotel is basically fine for what it is with the exception of the gym which, as others have commented, is really bad.

Specifically, there is a real shortage of equipment: 1 treadmill, 1 cycle machine, 1 weights station and 2 step machines. That's it. No concept2 rowing machines or a second/ third treadmill etc. Result = waiting around until someone finished using the 1 treadmill. There does appear to be sufficient space to add more machines but presumably no budget to do so, quite surprising given the price of the rooms. What is slightly odd is (when you get on the machine) having the jaccuzzi only a couple of feet away in open space with no real physical separation between the areas.

So, as someone who travels a fair bit, I need my hotels to have proper gyms to keep the pounds off (actually less of a risk here given the small portion sizes served in the restaurant). Back in July, when the manager of this hotel was in the habit of responding to Trip Advisor users' comments, he claimed that he had improved the gym as a result of a comment (see comment written on 23 June and manager response of 18 July). If what exists now represents an 'improvement' on what existed before, I can only imagine there was a single skipping rope previously. Come on Radisson Blu, get your act together. I will go to Pullman on subsequent visits.

It is an expensive hotel with nice rooms. The restaurant was just ok. Although there is a gym the equipment is not in good condition. There is no one on duty at the gym and it was short of towels when I used the facilities. Parking is good if you have a car. Could be difficult to find without a GPS.

We stayed for 2 nights and had dinner here one night too. The location was great (although this is probably THE most complicated area around an airport I have ever been too!) Parking our rental car was VERY convenient. The meal we had was fabulous and our waiter, Benjamin, was fabulous. He suggested 2 wines that we tried and they were perfect! How did one sooo young know just the right wines for us? There was, of all things, a motorcycle convention going on but the hotel had is so well planned that it never bothered us at all. We still got great service even when there were hundreds in their banquet room. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We had a "regular room" and it was very nice. They offered us an upgrade for about $50 mor...

At only 400M from the airport this could not be a better hotel location for people travelling.

The hotel is clean, the staff crisply professional (from what I saw there was no bell service so you carry your own luggage), the dining facilities top notch..

The in room service is great, as, when we asked for robes, they were there within 1 minute...

We would stay here again if travelling through Toulouse

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be nice, you would want one facing the back if possible

Were we disappointed when we arrived in this Radisson blu airport hotel to find that they don't have a doorman or porter? Our group of 14 ladies had to bring in all our luggages to the room. Is this the famous Radisson blu service?
When we had dinner in their restaurant, the service was so poor. The waiter forgot the orders. It was one disorganized service! Maybe top management of the Carlson
Group can look into the service and bring it up to the renowned quality that Radisson Blu is know for.
