I stayed at this hotel mid March 2012 for business. I had a nice spacious room. I think it is a quite new hotel. Room is clean though it has no bathtub.

It islocated just next to SM mall, hence I could easily find some resto there when I got bored with Hotel food. Hotel food is not bad though.

I am a fan of Radisson hotels internationally. Much better than their US hotels.
This hotel did not disappoint.
Lobby is so huge you can fit another hotel into it. Very modern and spotlessly clean. Rooms are also large and clean. Location is not the best in terms of visiting Cebu ( but I must add there is not a whole lot to see in the city anyway) Taxis are very cheap and there is a taxi stand right next to hotel by the huge mall. Mall is convenient to get whatever you may need. Food options are better at the Ayala mall. I recommend to go there to eat.
Wi-fi is free. When will the other big chains learn that charging for wi-fi is costing them customers.
Nice and big gym and pleasant outdoor pool.
I think Cebu has very little of interest to offer a visitor but if you will go anyway this is a good place to stay.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and 3 days during the weekend of March 10. I was impressed with the wide and very spacious lobby. In addition, the service was equally impressive as the front desk staff were very accomodating with the customer's request. The room given to me was a corner room with a view of the harbour. The hotel has great facilities ie. a pool, gym and a spa. Aside from this, it has the Feria Cafe which serves buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Lobby Lounge is captivating at nightime with its mood lighting and with the presence of a performing band till 11pm on a weekend. I tried their calamansi mojito and it was great. I think the area of opportunity is to have another restaurant, maybe a Japanese or Chinese restaurant to further enhance its 5 star status. Overall, it was memorable staying at this hotel moreso that it is a stone's throw away from SM City. Will come back here again.

Room Tip: Always pick the higher floor with a water view

Upon our arrival at the airport we were greeted with smiles and welcoming hellos that continued throughout our entire stay. The room was comfortable and modern. The breakfast buffet was like a cornucopia of food and definitely started each day on a positive note.

I recommend taking a spa treatment in the hotel which was very affordable and relaxing. There is a great mall located next door and it has everything from restaurants to IMAX and loads of shopping. The hotel is not far from the pier if you wish to take a boat ride to another island and the hotel can make all the arrangements for you.

I would definitely stay here again and look forward to making another trip to Cebu.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the pool is nice.

Stayed in the excecuative suite in the Radisson Hotel Cebu. Had a wonderful stay, congratulations must go to the bar staff as well as the staff of the Radisson Hotel for there friendly and excellent service. I must say all staff at the Radison Hotel present themselves in a professional and friendly manner. There Uniforms and general presentation was excellent.
Have travelled widely over the last 10 years and have found this hotel excellent, I would recomend to anyone going to Cebu to stay there.
I will be going back to cebu and staying at the Radisson again.

One of the best hotels in Cebu in terms of facilities and location. It is located just right outside SM Cebu which is a great plus since you are just walking distance to Cebu's top shopping and food destination.

Though its' a pitty that I had some problems with the Banquet staff when I had an event here. I always say that it's the people who make a hotel a great place to stay in. They apologized already and will come back here soon so that they can redeem themselves to me.

Spent 3 nights at the hotel.

Hotel was ok, quite nice. Lobby is huge and spacious. There is a looby lounge area and only 1 restaurant. Free form pool that's not too bigh. Spacious looking gym.
Rooms are clean and toilet is spacious. Does not have tub. However, the door to the shower cubicle itself is sliding type and rather small. A larger size person may have some trouble with it. Bed is very firm. Those used to sleeping on soft mattresses may have a hard time sleeping.
Buffet spread at the hotel for breakfast/lunch/dinner are ok. However, the breakfast service staff were not too attentive. We had to order our coffee & tea 3x before it came and they tasted really horrid. The freshly brewed coffee at the meeting rooms were much better.

Location of the hotel is a pain though. It is in the middle of no where. In between the port and a huge mall. Nothing else. It is at least 30mins drive to the city and other 'resort' like area e.g. Plantation Bay Hotel.
There is absolutely nothing to do at night once the mall closes and there is no other entertainment facilities in the hotel. It is a short drive to the airport though for those who needs to get to the airport quickly.

Overall, the hotel is ok, with pleasant enough staff. Location though is really terrible. Will not stay there if I were on vacation.
