The imposing exterior of the Lackawanna Station Radisson is a far cry from the sterile cookie-cutter hotels of modern times. Originally a train station, the historic property has become a comfortable hotel with luxurious elements seldom used today. The lobby is several stories tall with columns of marble. Some of the upstairs rooms are on hallways overlooking the lobby, or a stained glass ceiling to the lower part.
I booked a room on a Saturday night when the hotel was hosting a wedding and a baby shower. We were pleasantly surprised by the live music both in the evening and accompanying a sumptuous Sunday morning buffet.
The room had a granite countertop and granite tiles in the entryway. The plastic tub inset, therefore, was quite jarring. Sleep Comfort beds in all the rooms are comfortable, although not any better than a good-quality regular mattress. The staff was exceptionally pleasant.
I would return to this hotel.
