I'm not sure why so many people feel the need to be highly critical and negative when they write a review of a hotel or restaurant. Maybe they're just critics manque. Some of the recent reviews of the Radisson Lackawanna and its wonderful staff and restaurant are a case in point. My wife and I ate here years ago, had a wonderful experience, and returned just a few days ago to spend the night and enjoy a meal at the hotel restaurant in the main lobby. First of all, the staff was helpful and friendly from start to finish. Our room was clean, quiet, and reasonably priced. Once again we wandered the wonderfully restored lobby, admiring the fabulous tiled murals, marble pillars, and welcoming ambiance. Best of all, though, was the meal we enjoyed in the hotel restaurant. Due to the reviews, I was expecting to be either disappointed, at worst, or at best satisfied that the meal was not a total disaster. (We were also celebrating a wedding anniversary.) Much to our surprise and delight, we were simply astounded at how good our meal was, starting with the mushroom ravioli appetizer and then the perfectly done (make that terrifically accomplished) salmon entree. Our bottle of wine was nicely chilled and moderately priced. This magnificently restored hotel and lovely restaurant (breakfast was also great the next morning!) are an Appalachian gem. It's worth going out of your way for, and it deserves every one of its five stars. -Pat and Jack from NYC
