Yes, you're looking for a place in the area. This is it.

Great location, friendly service, and secure/covered parking. The grounds are well-kept and clean. Front desk is attentive.

Our room was pretty nice! Roomy. The hotel had the only bed I've ever slept on while away from home that was comfortable enough to actually get some sleep.

Two grievances: 1) Room smell. There was such a strong body odor in the room upon check-in that it made me gag. Nothing a can of Febreeze didn't fix. 2) Wish the cafe had longer, open business hours. We had a Foursquare check-in bonus we couldn't use (a free coffee) because the cafe had such short hours on the weekend.

Tip: Bring cash ($1-$5). The covered parking is a public space and requires payment to enter.

To sum up, outstanding place to visit. We'll be back to explore more.

Room Tip: We had a room on the first floor, and it was super quiet. View toward the lake was beautiful.

We were in town for a youth baseball tournament and booked two rooms here for a Saturday night (2 adults and 2 kids in each room). Beautful location right downtown, on Lake Michigan, with a scenic walkway/boardwalk. Hotel itself was lovely. Clean, large rooms and great common areas. The pool was perfect for the kids (we had it all to ourselves), and if the parents arent swimming, there are tables directly outside the pool where you can sit and relax out of the heat and humidity and have a drink but still keep an eye on the kids. The hotel was pretty deserted so it felt almost like we had the place to ourselves, its probably not that way during the summer as Im sure its a popular location. There is an outside tiki bar that looked fun but is not yet open for the season. They were able to give us a 2pm checkout which was awesome, as the kids were able to spend time in the pool (our game was rained out) and extend our stay a bit longer. We paid less than $100 which was a bargain. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. There is a Starbucks in the lobby and an attached bar/restauarant that was very nice, we had drinks at night and breakfast in the morning and it was good. The only negative is that there is no hotel parking, so you have to park in the adjacent public garage -- its $1.50 each time you enter, we only did once, but if you are coming and going it could add up. The two-bedded rooms are doubles, so it was a little tight with two adults trying to share a double bed, would have loved it if they were queens. With the excellent view, it would have been nice if the rooms had balconies (im not sure why they dont, as the windows are sliding doors, but dont open except for a crack. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return if in the area again.

My husband and I went away for the weekend at the Radisson Hotel Racine Harbourwalk. The staff is very attentive to each guest as they arrive and works hard to provide excellent service.

Our room was a beautiful, clean room overlooking the marina; with a whirlpool. The sleep number bed is very comfortable. The room had coffee, tea, fruit and water, which was a nice way to unwind upon arrival. We enjoyed the jacuzzi in our room with bubbles.


The Chancery restaurant is a great added bonus to this hotel. We have enjoyed our meals every time we go. The build your own pasta is the best.

We will definitely be returning as it is close to home and a great stay for the price.

Our room overlooked the harbor which was a nice view, although I would love to see it again during the summer months when the Tiki bar is open !

The room was awesome, loved having the whirpool right next to a large king size sleep number bed. The front desk staff was very friendly and would definitely recommend this hotel if you are in the Racine area. I would visit again.

What the hotel was lacking the staff made up for. Friendly front desk and room service personnel.

The bed was not for me. My spouse didn’t have any problems falling asleep but I actually couldn’t wait for morning. Our room overlooked the harbor which came with a lovely sunrise (nice bonus). It would have been nice if the doors opened and there was a small balcony that you could enjoy. We had a jacuzzi in our room which we did relax in with a bottle of champagne, chocolates and bubbles. The hotel itself has a nice appearance. The pool and hot tub are small. It would have been nice to enjoy the hot tub without being inundated by children. We were offered fruit, coffee and granola bars as a quick breakfast snack. Chancery Restaurant or room service are both available. This hotel is located in downtown Racine so there are many local restaurants to visit as well as the art museum and quaint little shops.

We will stay again as it is close to home and sometimes it’s nice to get away from live-in father-in-laws and children.

From Racine originally, came back to visit family and stayed in the Radisson for the first time. It was nice, but not especially so. Our room was a little dark and slightly dingy, and the whirlpool seemed a little old. The hotel itself was very nice looking, however, and the location was perfect for going out in downtown Racine. Our view of the lake and harbor was lovely, and we could see people ice fishing outside our window after the sun rose through our window. The Chancery restaurant downstairs is very nice, although it's a confusing path to find the entrance through the hotel.

Room Tip: Whirlpools look like they need an upgrade, I wouldn't spend extra for one again.

The room was very large and comfortable. The view outside our window was great. Enjoyed watching newer movies in room. We were anxious to try the sleep number beds but were not impressed. We ended up having to call the front desk to get it to work right. The staff were very nice and friendly. Ordered room service for breakfast from the restaurant. Did not use the pool. However, the kids in it looked like they were having fun. It was quiet and we were not distrubed by outside noise. Overall, an enjoyable and relaxing stay.
