Based on my visits to the Radisson Blu in Birmingham I thought this hotel would be a sure thing. I got a reduced status room while my colleague got a business room. As I was in a standard room it felt like a Travel Lodge. There was a baby crying near the restaurant, which the staff did not feel it necessary to ask the mother to move, it really disturbed the meal. Breakfast was good apart for the disgusting person that we sat beside who constantly was regurgitating food back into their throat. Everyone in the restaurant was disgusted but the staff did not feel the need to ask this person to move or to even offer to move anyone else. The staff in the restaruant (morning) were poor, they brushed past chairs which is highly irritating. The check out woman (Elizabeth) was horrible, what A COLD COLD person. It annoyed me even more as the girl on the other desk looked super happy and bubbly - I wish she had checked us out. Very disappointed in this hotel, I would never stay again. However durham is a lovely place to walk about.
