I had stayed at the old Radisson hotel several times before this visit. In general, the renovation has done a lot of good.The rooms have a more contemporary feel, they are well appointed and spacious. I was somewhat surprised to see the burning cauldrons in front and in the lobby. Heating the outdoors does not make much sense, and I wonder why we should release more CO2 into the atmosphere than necessary. But my overall experience during a four-night stay was very good. There is an Applebee as well as a Starbucks inside the building, and there are plenty of cheap eats in the area. I did not have an opportunity to try the in-house restaurant. The hotel has a nice exercise room and offers passes to the nearby swimming pool. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Once the Light Rail is operational, it will be a breeze to get to the hotel from the airport.
