Thank you for the tremendous review, see you again soon
I needed something close to the airport after arriving from Australia, as I was flying out to Ireland early the next morning. Found a good rate on the Radisson Blu online.
It is definitely a mix of pros and cons.
- Free wifi
- Bed was very comfortable
- Large tv
- Good shower pressure (important after a long haul!) - also liked the refillable bottles concept but the conditioner one didn't work.
- A number of food options both within the hotel (didn't try them) and McDonalds and others nearby
- Friendly staff
- Very close to the airport. I caught one of the Hopper buses and the schedule was very clear. Only took about 10 minutes to get to/from the terminal. Make sure you have UK currency.
- My room was quite small - very very little space around the bed to put your suitcase, so if you are traveling as a family, this may prove limiting for you if you have multiple suitcases.
- There was a large queue when I arrived and I decided to use the computer sign in as an alternative. Went through the whole process only to have it say it couldn't give me a key card, so had to queue anyway. But the staff were apologetic.
- Wondered why the hallways were sooooo dark? A bit spooky compared to the rest of the hotel.
Anyhow, nothing flash, but has everything you need for a short stay.
Thank you for the review, i have pm'd you to get a bit more information from you.
I look forward to hearing from you.
My husband and I have just returned from a gorgeous relaxed stay here. Stayed one night in basic room which was a delight ! double room was decorated beautifully, felt very relaxed. Check in staff were excellent. Room had little details that made the difference to or stay, plenty of toiletries (not little sample pots that are normally provided) lights that could be dimmed, bottled water,hair dryer that works well !
we did not use gym etc although staff were excellent at showing me what was available, very pleasant , we were just too tired.
Breakfast was delicious, best I've had, in a lovely setting. not like normal mass feeding area.
I did experience a waitress being spoken to quite rudely by another guest, who was TELLING her where he was going to sit etc, totally uncalled for, and the waitress just kept her calm and answered in a very professional way.
I also loved loved that staff would check we were ok? We obviously had a puzzled look on our faces ( needed to now about arrivals at airport etc) and a staff member took the time to explain how to get to airport, again very professional.
My husband and I both agreed that we will use the hotel again in near future for holiday stopovers etc , felt like home from home.
Dear Tracey F,
Thanks for the gret review, I hope to see you again soon.
We were a bit worried about having a hotel so close to the airport (we booked online without realising how close it was). What a surprise we got when we woke the next morning to find we hadn't heard anything!!! Very pleased with this.
Hotel was in a good location to stay the night before our flight out. Took a while to get into London on the tube but we did expect this.
Overall, very please with the hotel.
Thank you for the lovely review, i'm pleased you had a good stay, to get into London, you can get a free bus which is a 5 minute ride to Hatton Cross or T1/2/3, it is then a 50 min ride to Leicester Square on the Piccadilly Line
See you agan soon.
I was able to finagle a room in this hotel on a night when it was sold out. I was staying down the street at the horrible Renaissance Marriott and I was absolutely desperate for a decent hotel. This hotel far exceeded my expectations with beautiful rooms, a fantastic modern ambiance, and friendly staff. I had a nicely appointed room and even got a drink voucher for an upgraded room status. Also, Internet was free...yes free!!! This hotel was close to the airport and I was able to get a great nights sleep without feeling dirty like I did in the other hotel. The experience here was so great that I signed up to be a rewards member, something I never do with hotels or airlines. I will for sure be staying here in the future.
Dear Nicole M,
Thank you for the kind review, i'm glad we were able to help you.
I hope to see you back when over from Boston too.
My partner and I stayed here the night I landed on my flight from Australia. The beautiful deep bath was hot, amazing and exactly what I needed.
We booked a late check out and wandered down to enjoy a club sandwich and cocktail in the bar the next morning. My partner commented on the wonderful Italian/Spanish attendee behind reception whose manner was so polite and professional.
In addition the blonde bar attendee (also foreign) stood out as excellent, the clubs were tasty and generous and the cocktails started my holiday off on a very nice note.
A perfect stay.
Dear 114466Lyn ,
Thank you for the splendid write up. I hope you stay again soon.
