I visited the hotel last week as it was recommend by a large customer who uses this hotel frequently. It is most frequented by business people and was pleasant, comfortable, quiet, and readily accessible to the interstate. The rooms are very tastefully done though some rooms have the older "colorful polyester" bedspreads and others have the more comfy down comforters. Most all of the rooms - if not all - have the "sleep number" beds which are adjusted to your level of softness or firmness. The pillows were of varying thicknesses and this to me is a real plus. The decor of the lobby is spacious and inviting but relatively generically tasteful to cater to its business guests.
The very ample spa/workout facilities are also a plus: dry sauna, whirlpool and large pool (indoor), raquetball, wallyball and even a sand volleyball court. Fitness equipment was well maintained and of good quality. The locker rooms and baths/showers in the spa area are dated but not a problem in my view. Massages can be arranged easily and they have different fitness classes every day. A great plus.
I can not say enough about the friendliness of the staff, everyone from the gift shop staff to the front desk personnel. My taxi's were arranged by them and always on time. Brian and Dave, the shuttle drivers, were prompt and very helpful. There is plenty of complimentary parking compared to other high-end hotels. The restaurant food is quite good here and the bar area is lively but not loud. Room service was very prompt and got my order right every time. Management was always present and greeted you by name.
I would definitely stay again and recommend it to anyone wanting a little peace and quiet and not so interested in being at a hotel in the middle of things. This is in the midst of a great many large businesses (Tyco, Cargill, etc.)
It is an easy $25 cab ride to the hip Uptown area and the same to downtown for more eclectic restaurants and shopping. Bear in mind that your meal choices are quite limited in Plymouth.
Kudos to this Radisson!
