I booked this hotel through Expedia because it was on sale one night ($150/night) and I always try to stay at a different JFK hotel to get a feel for them as much as possible. I've stayed at the La Quinta, Best Western, Holiday Inn Express, Comfort Inn and now this Radisson (as of Mid Oct) and this being the most expensive of them all (regular price) it was definitely NOT the best experience. Normally I read a lot of reviews before booking but just went for this one because of the name and price.....and after booking then seeing the last 10 reviews under me I got really nervous.
My experience wasn't nearly as bad as others. The negatives:
-shuttle from the airport took at least 30 mins for pickup. considering it literally takes less than 10 mins to get there i dont know why this service is so inefficient.
-no free breakfast- (but this is known from the time of booking)
-rooms are older and need updating
-personally, one of the packages I sent to the hotel couldn't be found. I dont really blame them for this though...seller and shipper fault.
-in room AC was really loud and the room temp didnt seem to correspond to what you set the thermostat at....strange.
-my check in was quick and easy
-they held my packages with no issue
-shuttle TO the airport was on time and efficient and driver was pleasant.
-clean, comfortable room for the most part.
All in all, it wasn't a bad experience but I wouldn't go back if i had other choices at the same price. Unless you're a loyalty member or something I would say better choices in this area are definitley the Best Western or Holiday Inn Exp.
