Worst Experience Ever

Arrived tired first night with 6 bags and children no one helped us to get the bags to the room, had to go down to reception twice to ask for new set of keys cause the ones they gave us could not open the door. reserved a two bed room and they gave us a single bed one, they said that there are small letters in the request form saying that the hotel cannot be responsible of room availability, there was the only room available take it or leave it. My bed had blood stains (i got the pictures) and the AC made horrible noise no one could sleep (i video recorded it), They chanced us to a new room the next day, when we came back in the evening at 23:30 the AC of the room stopped working it was completely frozen, it had a block of ice inside (got picture of it), went to the counter desk they changed the room for second time at 23:45. The hotel gave us apologies and breakfast coupons, asked for hot chocolate for breakfast, after drinking half of it i realize that there was lipstick marks in the glass and i was not wearing any lipstick (got picture of that) the Chinese lady that attend us told that we were having breakfast with coupons, so i replied that that was not a reason to give me a drink on a dirty glass. Went back to the counter desk with the glass, one of the managers told us that they were going to give us the next two days free cause all the inconveniences, when we made the check out they told us that that was not possible because our reservation was made through a third party and they could not make the prize adjustment. When arrived home got an email where the hotel charged my credit card 2 transactions and we did not consumed anything in the hotel or asked for any special service, had to call my bank to stop the transaction..... The staff was polite and educated I do not recommend this hotel

It is ok but there are better options

We've stayed here twice. So first the good: the room size is decent, the beds are wonderful, the staff was nice, not too noisy (there is a night club downstairs but if you're on the upper floors you won't hear it), and requests (towels, plumbing issues, etc. ) were handled very quickly. The bad: the room smelled like mildew & flatulence (sorry to be so blunt but it did) coming from the heat/ac unit and the windows only open about 3 inches and the opening is behind the curtain well so you can't air out the room. It was so bad and it never got better. All our clothes & luggage still smelled bad by the time we got home. They need to flush out the units and open the windows. My sheets weren't washed (there was urine on them when I got there). The pool is not heated as advertized. The neighborhood is very sketchy (homeless, gang issues, and even a 12 hour hostage situation 1/2 a block away), parking was tough to find when the nightclub was open. My kids want me to tell you that the front desk people kept promising to bake cookies but that never happened (they did check back when told when cookie time was but they were always told to come back later. ) If they took care of the room smell and sheets , I would recommend them since the other hotel options are in worse areas.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Try Village sweets and candies! Yummy fudge, candy, and decked out apples. Also, Zumaya directly across the street from the hotel is super yummy. Both also have great staff.

Weekend Getaway

Awesome experience as soon as we walked in. Convenient access to the pool, the gym and restaurant. Great live band in the bar area (make sure you reserve a table it fills up fast). Restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Loved the Sleep Number beds. Covered parking is free and roomy. Would stay again in a heart beat.

pretty hotel

Everything was delightful except the hot water heater was out on 3 floors for approximately 24 hrs. No hot/warm shower or hot water for any other need. I couldn't believe it took that long to install a functioning water heater. However, because the reservation was booked through a travel company, they said I couldn't be comped a night's stay but did give me a card for a complimentary night's stay and deleted my room service charges.

Good Stay

Good staff, clean rooms. They moved us after we had noisy neighbors with problem. Forgot our cell phone charger in the original room and the cleaning staff returned it right way. Wish we had time to try the pool, it looked relaxing.

hope it gets better when remodel complete

Looks nice, but all kinds of issues for a business traveler. WiFi not working consistently, corded internet not working at all, no PBS channel on TV and no hairdryer in the remodeled rooms. HUH? And although the hotel was almost empty (virtually no cars in the parking lot), I was put right next to a room with children who were still crying at 10pm. Best part of the trip was a great tofu salad in the restaurant.... who'da thunk? I am just booking my next trip to that area and will NOT stay here again, in fact I won't stay at a Radisson again until I have forgotten about this experience. Courtyards, Hilton Gardens, Residences are much more consistently reliable. Sorry to be so negative but it was a huge hassle and not a good start to my trip.

Misleading Photos

Don't expect the rooms to look like the ones in the photos. Apparently they are in the process of remodeling. When you walk in to your room you'll know why. Also, don't upgrade to the Suite. They didn't honor my upgrade and put me in a regular room.

Good hotel for the location.

I feel that the hotel need updating on it's bathrooms. The tub had peeling pain and the shower pressure was low.
