Pros: This Radisson Blu has raised the bar for our expectations for future hotel stays. The staff was nothing short of amazing and incredibly courteous. The concierge staff: awesome! One staff member overheard it was my birthday and wished me a happy birthday.
Cons: We were on the tenth floor, but we weren't able to appreciate/enjoy the view as the windows were incredibly dirty (outside). To be expected, though, being a high rise and in a big city. No free breakfast/coffee.

Pros: Overall hotel experience was fantastic.
Cons: Traveling with my husband & 20 year old son we had to pay an upgrade fee for 2 beds. Normally standard rooms are 1 or 2 beds depending on travelers.

Pros: Clean, comfortable room.
Cons: The atmosphere was cold, bar area was poor. Uncomfortable chairs, and bad service. It was more like a 3 star hotel.
