This is a beautiful hotel. Very spacious and inviting. The staff is courteous, sharply dressed, and most of them speak English. I was on business, so I don't have any information on the tourist side of it, but they were wonderful for my needs. Good breakfast in the morning, nice bar, beautiful pool and outdoor areas to enjoy. Be sure to pay your exit tax at the hotel before you leave the country - this will save a long line that you would have to stand in at the airport.

We were working in a suburb of San José and our office placed us here. We were somewhat captive as we worked most of the day and did not feel like going anywhere in the evenings. We stayed on the 4th floor which was their executive floor. We were given two bottles of water the first night and that was it. From then on we had to get our own water. The floor had its own mini breakfast bar, soft drinks, beer and snacks in the late afternoon and a small gym as well as apples available in a bowl all the time. However, the regular hotel amenities were good as well. There was a Gold's gym attached to the hotel that hotel residents could use. The breakfast that came with our room rate was fine. It had an omelette station, dry cereal, fruit, rice & beans, some tico dishes, scrambled eggs, pastries, bread, and juice. We ate our dinners in the hotel as well. The dinners were large portioned. The bar had a selection of foods that were cheaper and sufficed for our dinner. The downside of the bar was they played music videos that were (for us) loud and less than desirable (most of the time) for us to watch. The woman at the travel desk was very helpful in planning our weekend. The desk personnel and the porters were nice and pleasant and always willing to assist us. We stayed there for 12 days. The hotel was not within walking distance of anything, but we survived on what was within the hotel as we were working most days.

Room Tip: We stayed on the "concierge" floor.

Checked into hotel with little Spanish speaking ability but Roger the concierge was able to help with the translations and offered great suggestions on where to eat and shop. Roger made my trip. Hope to see him real soon.

Radisson is fantastic - great pool and fitness center - the cleanliness of the room was impressive - the bed extremely comfortable and the sheets excellent. The coffee machine in the lobby and the small refrigerator in the room made our stay very comfortable. Excellent location for exploring San jose. really close to el pueblo. amazing staff

Nice hotel. Big, spacious, well-appointed rooms. Not enough sound deadening in the walls. You can hear a little more of the conversations next door than you probably want to. Some companions had an issue with an overwhelming disinfectant odor in their room (Pinesol?). Their request to change rooms was promptly honored. Very long hallways -- it can be a hike back to the elevator/lobby. Breakfast buffet is excellent -- with omelets. Eating in the bar resulted in confusion on getting orders correctly submitted, but once the food showed up, it was quite good. Agree that there is not much to see or do outside the hotel in the immediate area.

I stayed a number of nights at this hotel and I would highly recommend it for anyone who is in town for business. I can't really find any major faults with this establishment and would definitely come back again.

Pros:
Very good breakfast buffet (included in room price)
Excellent gym (a Gold's gym is attached to the hotel and entry is complimentary for hotel guests)
Reasonable rates (approx. US$100 per day including taxes)
The walk to the centre of San Jose is @ 15 to 20 min.
There are a few decent restaurants nearby (Pueble Viejo)
Nice pool area
Extremely friendly, helpful and efficient staff
Very large rooms with comfortable adjustable beds, safes and flat panel TV's
WiFi included in room rate and works well throughout the hotel

Cons:

Needs a faster/large photocopier in the business centre
Hotel taxi fares are twice the street taxi fares
The front desk can get busy at times and I would suggest they get more staff to work there. Also, the front desk should keep a large amount of small US and Colon bills on hand so that guests can change the larger bills dispensed by the bank ATM.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the elevator area as the hallway traffic noise can be loud at times.
