Our family recently stayed here, we booked 2 rooms, one with double queen beds and the other was a suite for 5 nights. They were your average rooms, could have been cleaner, ex.top of fridge dusty, fingerprint smears on window from previous guest. Staff was okay not overly friendly and some didn't acknowledge you. Breakfast is included but isn't great they were out of something every day during our stay (ex. Syrup, etc.)
Biggest issue was you cant control the temperature in your room, even though there was a thermostat in your room, our room was almost 80 degrees, we kept lowering the temperature but didn't get any cooler. We called down and they advised us to shut it off and there was nothing they could do about it and if it was too much they could let us use a fan. For the price you can't expect to much but for the same price I have definitely been in cleaner and friendly hotels. Lock on bathroom door was also broke, microwave was stained on inside so we never used it, freezer worked well but fridge barely kept items cool
There was a game to spin the wheel for prizes. It was broken and I feel like giving extra points would be an appreciated alternative. New Raddison member and we will Definetly use Raddison Hotels during future travels.
