When I booked this hotel, my intentions were to be close to the OC airport (a block away) and to have a clean place to stay (without 4-star hotel price...Fairmont, Hilton, etc...). The hotel shuttle service came approximately 10-15 min after I called from the curb. The doorman and front desk personnels were extremely friendly, helpful, and professional...no pimply, young punks here. The ambiance of the hotel lobby was grand, paved with travertine and filled with silk orchids. I instantly noticed how CLEAN the hotel was...nothing like a regular 3-star hotel. Though they offered to help me with my luggages, I hauled all 3 pieces of my luggage up to the 10th floor...thank God for wheels on modern luggage. My room was not only super clean, but it felt like I'm in a 4-star hotel!! I immediately went into the bathroom to check the cleanliness of the grout between tiles on the floor and in the shower; to my surprise, it was super clean everywhere...no water spots nor short and curly hair here! The towels and wash cloths were fresh and thick, unlike other hotels. The hotel is conveniently located next to a Staples (where I made last minute copies of my handouts for my presentation), Jamba Juice, Quiznos, Fuji Grill, etc.. Housekeeping did a fantastic job cleaning my room and performing turn down service (got an oatmeal cookie on the first night, a chocolate mint, on second night, etc.). The hotel has an impressive breakfast buffet (for a VERY reasonable fee) with a wide selection--smoked meats, scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, oatmeal, pancakes, fresh squeezed juice, milk, fresh fruit selection, coffee, AND friendly servers! They also have a great bar and excellent in house restaurant. The pool is clean and family friendly with pool side service. By and large, this Radisson far exceeded my expectations and needs. I have stayed here for both business (on weekdays) and pleasure (on weekends with family). I highly recommend this place for the convenience, price, and service.
