Organised another conference at Radisson EMA. Staff were as always very helpful, professional and went that extra mile to assist. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. Good location if traveling from EMA and they have a shuttle service.

Dear Maria Nottingham,
Thank you very much for your positive feedback about your experience. I passed your comment to our Meeting & Events Team, it is very rare to receive feedback on Tripadvisor especially for this department.

I only had the pleasure of staying for one night whilst at Donington Park race circuit but, despite checking in on a busy Saturday night when there was a large party in progress, I was dealt with cheerfully, helpfully and efficiently.
The room was very pleasantly furnished - light and airy, although one can't spend very long gazing out of the window as the business park is a little tedious.
The in-house restaurant was reasonable but the menu was quite expansive and well-priced. Service was very proficient, including the bar man who mixed a very palatable dry martini (although I would suggest slightly less vermouth and slightly more gin, that may be personal preference).
I didn't have a chance to check out the breakfast as I had to leave early, but cannot fault my stay.

We stayed there for a night in May 2013 for Donington Historic Racing festival. The hotel is brand new, with very spacious and nicely designed rooms with a lot of natural light. Service was excellent. Great value too.

We had my sisters wedding in this venue. From a warm welcome to the entire ground floor being immaculate this place is amazing. We recieved upgrades on our rooms for being family to the business class suites. what can i say about those... fantastically comfortable beds. great views of the runway at the airport whilst the glass keeps all noise out. beautiful to watch early in the morning whilst still feeling the effects of one of the heaviest nights of drink dance and fun in my life. The team are amazing... keeping the minibar open long after the music and dance had stopped with the prices being fairly low comparative to most hotels, if anything it was like having drinks in an actual bar with a pint being roughly three pounds. Cannot express my enjoyment with this experience and will always now be a customer with this hotel. Gorgeous decor, wonderful ethos and great staff

Room Tip: The business class rooms with runway views are amazing, sound is cancelled so its just theraputic wa...

From a warm welcome to excellent rooms, food and staff this was a lovely one night stay prior to attending the Donington Historic Festival the following day.
The only thing that stopped this from being a 5 star review was the £5 parking charge. I really do think this should be waived, unless one is leaving the car for a holiday from East Midlands Airport. This is possibly why there are cars parked just outside the hotel car park on the road?

Pleasant hotel with modern well designed & equipped room, comfortable bed and nice decor. Hotel is immaculately clean. Unfortunately the rooms large window did not open so had to rely on air conditioning system which was disappointing as we prefer natural fresh air. Corridor was over heated and quite stifling, however, the weather was quite warm outside. No noise heard despite being next door to airport terminal (probably due to well sealed windows!!) Breakfast was good with a reasonable choice of food on offer. Fast check in and out service; pleasant combined reception/bar/lounge area and friendly staff.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a window that opens - if they are available, but bear in mind they may be noisy...

Dear MisJoules,
We are pleased to read that you had good stay with us.
Yes, due to the design of the large windows you can’t open it. For this reason we installed a Air handling unit to ensure the room and corridors will constantly get fresh air. I will pass the feedback to our Maintenance Manager to have a look into the temperature of the corridors.
We hope you will choose us again.
