I stayed here a few years ago... it was great. Today, it's just a bit old and needs a redo. I had three issues on checkin: - WiFi was down - 'Sleep Number' bed was set to rock-hard mode and there is no controller to adjust it. - A/C doesn't blow cold air... just look warm. I arrived late, survived... More

It was quite dated and not totally clean. When We opened the bed... More

Room had a strong odor which smelled like mold . There was flooding water that seeped through the carpets in the hallways. Not a convenient location , with no restaurants nearby and distance was a factor with hotel being far away from central market and city . Do not recommend .

Poor customer service when we arrived. The room smelt musty. Our neighbour had to move 3 times due to problems with their room plumbing. The breakfast was great but the restaurant did not have a varied selection to choose from. I would not return to the Radisson.
