My wife and I stayed two nights. The first night was terrible. When we walked in the room it smelled like smoke. Then I walked into the bathroom and it smelled like sewer. The room was in the back of the hotel with construction just outside the windows. They were clanging and banging around until 11 PM when I finally called the front desk to complain. The consierge said he would talk to them, but by 12:30 AM they were banging metal around again.
The next morning the front desk called and told us that because of my call the night before they had a new room for us in the front of the hotel. It was everything the first room was not. Clean, no smell, and blissfully quiet. It had a better layout as well.
The restaurant was great but the seating was slightly eclectic, and halfway through our meal a maid started polishing the floor two feet from my elbow. Not classy. The whole hotel has lost that fresh feeling.
It was also hard to find. I ended up asking a police officer to help. He had never heard of the "In Residence", and when we pulled up in front of the Radisson he looked at me like I was nuts. Just ask for the Radisson on Soi 13.
So... about 50-50. Am I sorry I went? Not really. Would I go back? Probably not.
