The staff were super friendly - Kimmie in the bar, both Marla and Bob, the shuttle drivers and check-in and check-out ( didn't get their names ) - Sorry Kyle, but you should never discuss (complain) other customers tip amounts -...

Newly updated rooms, lobby, lounge, restaurant and meeting spaces are awesome! Staff are very friendly and helpful. Have stayed at The Colonial for decades and am so glad they updated their facilities. Rooms are big and quiet. Love staying at The Colonial!

This Radisson is very similar to others in this corp., clean and comfortable. We arrived later in the day and the restaurant was closing, but the kitchen kindly made us some fish and chips. We also had breakfast there and it was wonderful! The front desk helped us with making some changes to our reservation for upcoming stays.

Called before leaving our room to make sure they cleaned it and would leave us fresh towels. Returned 10 hours later to find....no clean room, no fresh towels....totally ignored. Upon...

Hotel room was a good size with extra room for comfort, clean and based on reviews and pictures, was what I expected. Frugal? Not really, I needed to stay here because of a group meeting - so find a way to get additional discount, AAA, Insurance Company Name, etc., I did and the savings was worth it. The issue I...

It is an older building that is a little dated in it's bones but the rooms were updated with the nice beds, furniture and tv. The customer service was...

Thank you for the kind review. Yes our parking is very large and extends around the building, many of our guest park near entrances closer to their rooms, so sometimes there is less cars at the main entrance to the hotel. Usually the parking lot is full as we have 17,000 square feet of meeting space and do many conventions...
