My husband and I were born and raised near Scranton, but have been out of the area for many years. The Radisson at Lackawanna Station holds fond memories, since my mother, aunts and I often waited there for a train to take us to Hoboken, where we caught the ferry to New York City. For years, the station sat empty and neglected, but remained a magnificent piece of architecture. It's wonderful to see how beautifully restored and maintained it is now. There are even some of the benches from the old waiting room at various places in the public areas - perhaps I actually sat on one of them as a child!
We still have occasion to visit the area from time to time, and have stayed at the station whenever we do. Our last visit was on 1/11 - 1/12/13. I requested a room we had and liked on a previous stay, or similar, and we were happy to be given the same one. The front desk staff were very friendly and accommodating, and the room was clean and comfortable, with a nice view of the city.
BTW, Carmen's Restaurant was excellent!
We will definitely be back!
