...and that was just the beginning.
We were very excited to spend a weekend in Fargo, my husband's alma mater town. We decided on the Radisson because our weekend included a friend's vow renewal that was happening at the Radisson itself. We were looking forward to the gym, the pool, and the other amenities and quality Radisson traditionally has offered us.
Unfortunately we were sorely disappointed. Upon arrival and check-in (at around 11:00pm), the reception area was entirely empty and I actually had to SEARCH AROUND for someone to check us in. He was chatting up a pretty girl around the corner, not paying attention to his post. First strike. When we arrived at our room, it lacked certain simple amenities like stir sticks, sugar and cream for our morning coffee. This was all disappointing, but forgiveable.
The next morning I woke to find the "pool" was NOT a pool; in fact, there were two small jacuzzis in what may have formering been a pool area. HUGE strike two. The workout room was satisfactory, and did have free bottled water and granola bars (that was a plus).
The water pressure in the shower was intermittent, and on the final morning during our shower, the hot water ran out! I have NEVER experienced this at any hotel, much less a $140/night hotel! I have had better amenities at small town, no-name hotels... STRIKE THREE.
Unfortunately this has ruined the Radisson experience for me, and I may choose to never stay at a Radisson again. I would also recommend to friends, family and tripadvisor aquaintances that they think twice before booking, especially at this location.
