Pros: The staff was very helpful in solving key issues and a late check out.
Cons: The hotel only goes 18 floors so the view wasn't that great from our balcony.

Pros: Nice pool and large fitness area. Some rooms have balcony, which is very pleasant. Nice location near everything. Good parking.

Pros: The property was conveniently located. We walked everywhere, but taxi's and public transportation was readily available. The staff was very accommodating and always smiling and greeting you. A special shout out to Daniel in the business lounge on the 17th floor. The breakfast buffet was great. Did not have lunch or dinner there, because we had other plans, but I'm sure that the meals would have been excellent. Will definitely return to the Radisson Aqua Blue!
Cons: Loved everything, except for the rain. :-(
