I spent a lot of time reading the reviews before I decided to book this hotel. This is really a matter of expectations. If you have stated other Raddison properties, then you may have high expectations that will not be realized. At least I didn't think that the stay at this hotel was any different, than stays I've had at Red Lion hotels, Holiday Inns, or even some older Hilton Hotels. And for the rate I was able to negotiate, with an upgrade to a small suite, I received value for money. This is often the case with older hotel properties (this hotel was built in 1969). The reason this is not a four star review is because, the hotels Wi-FI connections were difficult if not impossible to use. This is the first thing that the hotel needs to fix. Because the business traveler, needs wi-fi, and it needs to be good. As a leisure traveller this wasn't a necessity, but it appeared to be a problem in past reviews. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The pool area (while it could use an update) was adequate. We had breakfast at the restaurant, the view is spectacular. The room was clean, the bathroom was small, but clean. The room had a fridge and flat screen TV. So if you know what this property is and you get a good rate. Then you should have a good stay.
