A utilitarian, busy, somewhat worn Radisson in downtown Utica. Geared for business travelers during the week, they seem to cater to weddings and parties on the weekends. We stayed 3 nights, with a very good value pre-pay rate. We were in town for a music festival and most of the musicians seemed to be staying there as well, which was fun!
What we liked: Sleep number beds, feather pillows, comfy chair and ottoman in the room, mini-fridge, large absorbent towels, lovely indoor pool and whirlpool at perfect temperatures and not overly chlorinated, free parking in city parking garage right next door, nice lobby business center with comfortable desks and fast computers and free printing. The front desk approved our late check out request with no hassle. The hairdryer in the room did not work, and the maintenance engineer cheerfully got us a new one in less than 5 minutes.
What we didn't like: Stained, worn carpeting everywhere we went, stained desk chair in our room, our room with two double beds was pretty cramped, extremely small bathroom, very noisy in the halls to the point of waking us several times on Saturday night. The elevators require a room key to access guest room floors - that's a nice safety feature except the room key reader in one of the two elevators was not working intermittently throughout our stay and that was a real hassle. The front desk reported the problem several times in my hearing, but it was not successfully fixed during our stay. The fitness center was closed for a maintenance issue. Breakfast is included in room cost Mon-Fri, but not on Sat and Sun - boo!
Overall, would recommend this hotel and would stay here again.
