The hotel is fine, but the location is terrible. It took our driver 45 minutes to get us back to the old city, which is what we came to Pune to see. The hotel area is surrounded by furniture shops and large scale construction. It was difficult to find a local restaurant, which we prefer over hotel fare; there was a veg-only thali place across the busy road and a small veg/non-veg restaurant - the Ritz Carlson (sic!) - a fair walk away, near an English wine shoppe and supermarket.
The hotel was probably typical of every Radisson: very clean, large room equipped with all the standard amenities, good free WiFi, complimentary sweets delivered each evening to the room. We choose a room facing the back where there was construction on another large hotel. The roadside was very busy and we worried about noise from there. The staff were very accommodating; the dining area staff were meticulous in their service. The buffet breakfast included with our booking was well prepared, with numerous options both Indian and Continental: it was perhaps the largest buffet spread we saw on this trip to India. When a John Deere conference was booked into the hotel, breakfast tables came at a premium and the dining room was crowded but there was no shortage of food. The roof-top swimming pool was a bit leafy, but we visited it at the end of a windy day. We were the only ones who used it at the time, though several others were sunning themselves poolside.
