On the edge of the older (and smarter) part of town, and just about walkable from Station (we didn't), its in a great location. A fairly smart hotel, but not quite on the same level as other Radisson's; felt like a posh Travelodge. Rooms were clean and comfortable, with good air-con and soundproofing. Breakfast was very good; got a discounted rate on checkin (wasn't included in the price of the room).
Normally a room on the 14th floor would be a bonus but in a hotel with some of the worst lifts ever, being that high was a pain. Seems a bit petty but after you've been waiting 5 minutes for a lift more than a few times over a weekend the joke wears thin; on our way down one day we were asked if we could step out of the lift so someone who'd been waiting for a long time with bags and needed to be at the airport urgently could get in.
With a decent deal for a room near the ground I'd recommend it; don't pay over the odds and avoid anything above the 3rd floor.
