Stayed at the Radisson for 9 nights after Trip Advisor reviews stopped me going to the Marriott! Think it was a good choice overall. Upgraded to a 7th floor suite which was large, well designed and with a wonderful bed. WiFi good
Only downside was the very smokey corridor and the fact that a bit of smoke smell (not a lot) seemed to come in to the room at times via the air con
Service pretty good, except for the concierge service - where I was mis-informed by two separate desk clerks about mall opening hours, leading to a wasted taxi journey. I didn't get the impression that they 'did' concierge here - maybe this is a Saudi thing, I'm not sure.
There was a party of sorts in the room next to me one night and the hotel gave me an extra room for the night which allowed me to get some sleep
I ate at all the restaurants (Japanese, Italian, Buffet) and have to say I was underwhelmed - especially as I was hoping that some classy food might have made up for the lack of wine! The breakfast buffet in particular was very average and I was fed up of it by the time I left.
Overall though, I'd probably stay there again if the Intercontinental was full as it was for my stay....
