Stayed at the Radisson with my wife before flying off for our honeymoon in July 2014. We booked it as part of a deal that included long term parking at Heathrow and it turned out to be great value for money.
Parking was ample and upon check in a concierge was sent to help us with our bags. Despite booking a double room the hotel had us down for a twin but, as such, they upgraded us to a "business class" double. In all honesty it was no more special than any standard double I have encountered but it was nice of them to make the effort.
The room was big enough and had all the usual amenities (toiletries, tea/coffee making facilities, TV etc). Finding it was a bit of a mission - the hotel is something of a labyrinth and the corridors are deceptively long.
The spa isn't so much a spa as it is a gym, sauna, steam room and plunge pool. I think you can also get treatments but it wasn't something I really looked in to!
There are three restaurants on site but annoyingly the Indian restaurant is closed on Sunday. We ate in the bar and the two cheese and onion sandwiches with one portion of chips and two soft drinks cost £30 - as we were going somewhere relatively low cost to dine this turned out to be the fourth most expensive meal of our honeymoon! The sandwiches were made with standard white bread and were a bit sloppy - I'd definitely recommend dining elsewhere.
The hotel also hosts a number of conferences and while I'm sure the teenage Glee fans who were staying there at the same time as us had a whale of a time the constant screaming that can be heard coming from the conferencing facilities became a bit of a chore.
Like a fool I left my suit in the room and only realised after check out but the hotel made sure it was put to one side and I was able to collect it upon our return. When doing so the staff were helpful, efficient and courteous, as they were throughout our stay (FYI this time it was the "Geekfest" conference which seemed to rather take over the hotel).
Overall I'd recommend the Radisson - its not perfect but its certainly better than most airport hotels that I've stayed at
