“Pretty Good...away from the maelstrom of 13th Ave.”
Reviewed 17 March 2011

We stayed at this hotel as part of a little getaway. The hotel lobby was being remodeled but the desk staff were all extremely friendly. Check-in was quick. Parking is in the attached ramp that is owned by they city but hotel patrons get a discount ($3.00 dollars a day per car).

The hotel is close to downtown and the shops and restaurant on Broadway. Very convenient, no need to use a car when its nice out. We had a beautiful spring day.

The rooms have all been recently remodeled and are very comfortable. The sleep number beds were great! Request a room at the highest possible level. We were on the 13th floor so we had a decent view of Fargo's cityscape. Rooms were clean and linens were comfortable. It's an upscale hotel so things like the blowdryer are put relatively out of site which cuts down on clutter. Housekeeping staff was friendly. Didn't try the restaurant or lounge to can't speak to their quality.

Good place for younger couples or business people. No pool (which is fine) but they had three hot tubs and a small exercise area (limited equipment however). Hot tub area may need some updating but was OK overall.

Oh and free WiFi.

I've stayed here twice now (both times the Valentines Day special). The 13th floor is nice but if you stay on any floor lower forget about it. The room had a huge spot that looked like a bird died on the ceiling. The exercise/ pool area was gross. The pool had missing tiles that had fallen off and you could cut your feet on them. It was hard to get in and out of them because the railing was only on the inside of the pool. They looked like they have never been cleaned since they got them. They had built in rugs that were soaking wet and the floor had crust over it. The pool was cold and the jets were not kid friendly, they hurt when you walked in. The hot tub wasn't very hot and was also dirty like it hadn't been cleaned. Sauna light didn't work. Don't even bother to go to the weight room, it's one old elliptical machine, a bike and some dumbbells, just a really small room with old equipment.
Most of all they charged a credit card that i was promised wouldn't get charged for the room, just to hold it in case there was damage. I called and left a message at least 10 times and no one called back. Next time we stayed they overcharged us $60 and still can't get a hold of a manager to see what the extra charge was for.
On top of that some car backed into mine while we were in the parking ramp.
The man who served us dinner was very nice, very good food and we gave him a nice tip. The heat wasn't working and they came up to fix it shortly, those were the only good things I could say about them.

This was my first time staying at this hotel, which is located in downtown Fargo. I cannot say enough nice things about my experience at this hotel. The room was just wonderful. The bed was very comfortable and everything was very clean. I had no problems at all. The staff treated you with respect and went out of their way to make you feel at home. The lounge was great. The bartender Jerry, made you feel welcome and went out of his way to make sure you were comfortable and had everything that you needed. The food at the hotel was great. If you are looking for a great place to stay then this hotel would be the place to stay.

I LOVE this 1985 Radisson Hotel with its guest rooms redone so beautifully!!!

Oh to shop til you drop at West Acres etc. and then drive AWAY from 13th Avenue and head downtown to the Radisson!!! I'm sure not many do this or even agree with me but what a relaxing end to the hustle bustle of the mall and 13th Avenue retail and traffic!!

We checked in just after 3, headed up to our GORGEOUS 13th floor corner room (two walls of windows!) and sat and watched the fall sky change into dusk... peaceful. Then we went down to the lounge (not yet renovated but cozy by the window) and had a fab martini and great nachos and boneless wings with REAL blue cheese dressing! Later we walked past the historic buildings on Broadway, had a drink at the bar at HooDo lounge (funky/fun/friendly service) and headed back to our hotel. Enjoyed our view some more and had some champagne with their (not too good) pizza. In the morning we slept in peacefully and headed down for their great (and only 11.95) Sunday brunch. I would not change a thing and will only stay here when in Fargo!!!

The beds are great, the sheets are fresh fresh!! Including a proper mattress proctector which we did NOT have at the Hilton Garden Inn the night before in Grand Forks!!! They sheeted the bed right over the wool mattress topper ~ gross!! Me just one layer above the last persons sweat and God knows what else?!!!! Thank goodness for Radissons!!!

The hotel is is downtown Fargo. I do not believe there are any other chain hotels around the dowtown area. It is a large, old concrete building. The lobby and rooms need major updating. the bed's are great, as you can push a button to get to the right firmness for you. The hotel bar is cool, and the bartender was great!

This is a concrete slab built in 1985, so you take one look and know what to expect. BUT...

The room was a pleasant surprise. Good looking on first glance. The layout was a bit odd, and if I had needed to stay for business for more than a day, would have had me really cranky, it's obvious they have been redone in the last few years. Also, very clean and neatly made up. Same for the 7th floor hallway.

I realize that room furnishings aren't going to change any time soon, but I found them not very functional. The "desk" was at an oddly high, and the adjustable chair didn't raise high enough to make it viable as a typing/work surface. Way to high to use as a dining table.

The lounge chair was small and narrow, and there was no reading light. Only realistic choice for reading was in bed. Small LCD "reading lights" that are attached to the main sconces by the bed are a joke.

Bed and linens are excellent.

There is a large area in the entrance that seems to have been designed for a credenza or some surface. Which would have been welcome, as there was NO flat area available to open a suitcase. The choice was the bed or the floor. Really odd to get dressed from a crouch on the floor, and a reason not to return.

There was a second sink outside the bathroom, but unusable. Why? It was a pedestal sink with no flat surfaces to place toiletries, free standing, no counter or other surface at hand. Topper was that there was no mirror!!! Or towel bars/hooks!!! I'm not sure what a person could accomplish at this sink.

The rest of the public spaces are plain awful. The first impression of the lobby made me think I had made a major mistake. Just incomprehensibly ugly and harsh. There must be absolutely no competition for this hotel downtown. The lobby and elevators are extremely worn. The finish on the metal in the elevators is worn through. Looks like a New York City housing project facility. Literally. Time for a major upgrade.

Also, if you use the parking garage all the entrances from the parking decks have non-functional locks. Anyone can enter the upper levels and get on an elevator. I did not feel safe. And repeat the comments about the look and maintenance of these entries. Really bad.

I wouldn't bring a client back to this hotel. I won't be back unless forced.

And downtown Fargo is far more active than other reviews here indicate, good restaurants, a renovated movie theater, coffee house, bars, etc all within a one block walk. Seems there's been a bit of a downtown renaissance.

This hotel is very nice with newly remodeled rooms and Sleep Number beds. The room had a new flat screen, silky smooth sheets, great towels and robes and was very spacious. The staff was great. The restaurant and bar in the hotel are nice. It is within a couple blocks of a downtown shop, restaurant and bar district that I think is on Broadway.
