I am a travel agent and I live 3 hrs away from Halifax.Stayed March 10-11,2012. I have stayed here about 2 times before and I think this hotel needs some major upgrades. I had paid $109 for the room with 2 queen beds and a pull out couch(if I hadn't of got a good price I would NOT have stayed here). At the present time they are renovating the exterior of the hotel. Not sure as to what they are working on but I hope its more sound proof windows. You can hear all traffic and even people walking on the street at night are easily heard, and I was on the 4th floor. The rooms are spacious and there were 4 of us (2 adults,2 kids 13yrs old). They only have a small pool, hot tub and a small gym with 4 pcs. of equipment on the ground floor. This morning they only have tea and coffee complimentary. There is a restaurant downstairs on the ground floor called Ryan Duffy's where you can have breakfast(not complimentary). The lobby looks nice but the rooms are dated.Elevators are very slow. Also parking is valet and its around $18-20. I for one like to be at a hotel where I have quick access to my own vehicle when I want it. I personally don't like to wait for my car for 10-15 mins. This is however my opinion only. Good luck with your choice of hotels. I personally like the Harbourfront Marriott which you can walk to the casino and local shops without going outside. Although there maybe a price difference in the Radission and Marriott sometime its worth more money for added benefits. The Radission has a 4* rating my opinion should only be a 3* at best for Canadian standards.
