Stayed here for one night... at check in the person at the desk asked me if I wanted to upgrade to a club room for 30 pounds extra, I said no thank you, but then I was given a club room.. so I could of spent an extra 30 pounds for the room which i was going to get anyway... not a good practice...
Anyway the Raddison is in a great position, right next to Harbourside with all its restaurants, pubs/bars, next to the Hop on/hop off bus tours, opposite the Hippodrome, has lots of late opening food shops, like Sainburys, Tescos etc. It is certainly the best place to stay if you are going sightseeing... and what i liked was that hotel was outside of the main city centre shopping centre...
The hotel and room was fine, except the parking of the car was pricey, and it seems these days you need a degree to work out how to turn on the shower.

This hotel has a fantastic location with friendy staff and a great breakfast. we got lucky and got an upgraded room which had a fantastic view of harbourside. It was clean and quiet and we had a great nights sleep. Our only grumble was the cost of the valet parking £22 - there is an NCP car park nearby so probably cheaper to park there.

Room Tip: 604 was fab with amazing views

We spent a night at The Radisson Blu when we attended a concert at The Colston Hall.Our room was ready when we arrived at 2.30pm.Checkin was quick and easy.We used the car valet parking which was £23 for our overnight stay.It was expensive but very efficient.Our car was ready and waiting in the morning five minutes after we phoned to let them know we were ready to leave.Our room on the 12th floor was modern,spacious and light.We had a Nice view over the quayside and were high enough up to enjoy some peace and quite.The bathroom was large and modern,with a shower over the bath tub,which was OK.There is a safe,iron,ironing board and hairdryer provided.The rooms have free wifi which was quick and easy to use.Our room rate included breakfast which was very good,there was nice views out of the breakfast room windows.The hotel is in a terrific location ,very central.Plenty of eating places and bars on the doorstep as well as Colston Hall and The Hippodrome.There are various mini supermarkets including a 24 hour one very close by.All the staff we met were helpful and efficient.We had an enjoyable stay and will return.

Room Tip: Choose a room high up and ask for one with views overlooking the quayside.Good views and quiet.

The pros:
- clean
- conveniently located
- comfortable bed (although the queen size bed was 1 single mattress pushed next to another)
- good continental breakfast for 10 pounds (more if you want the full English breakfast)

The cons:
- the terrible mattress in the 'pack and play' for my 2 years old....he ended up having to sleep with us...which he is definitely not used to...at the end we all had a terrible night sleep.
- we knew that the parking was a rip off (23 pounds). We found on Tripadvisor that a cheap option was the parking on Trenchard street. It was full! SO if you want a cheap parking make sure to have more than 1 option.
- we were on the 14th floor and could still hear some drunks singing in the middle of the night. I could only feel sorry for the guests who were sleeping on lower floors.

I would have loved that hotel if it was just me and my husband but I would not recommend it for families with young children.

Thank you for the review.

I appreciate your comments on the parking but we feel at £3 more expensive than the national parking company and with our hassle free valet service, we feel the price is reasonable. but thank you, your comment have been noted.
I will look into the childs matress issues and see if there is an easy solution.

Thanks again and best regards

A friend chose this hotel for a girl's weekend and it really w a great selection.

Just 10 mins walk from the station (if you don't take a wrong t urn...) and brilliantly located or shops, bars, restaurants and sights. We arrived quite early on a fully booked Saturday but still managed to check in. Very friendly staff.

Room was an ok size or he price but beds (twin) were very close together. Room well equipped - iron, tea nod offer facilities etc and a lovely bathroom.

Great breakfast next day and staff happy to hold luggage after checkout.

Only a couple if negatives - crikey the hotel was hot!! Room, corridors, common areas - like being in a sauna.. And the most irritating thing - alarm click on tv went off at 6.13am!! Really loud and ruined the hoped or lie in.

I can only guess that a previous guest had left it set. Horrid.

Thank you for the nice review. I will look into the alarm setting as you can imagine it is not what we want to happen either.
Unfortunately we did have a few technical issues with Ac but these have all be settled I am sorry it had to happen on some of the hottest days of the year.
Please conatct me directly should you wish to retun to Bristol.
