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.
