Radisson At The University Of Toledo
Travel Blogs from Toledo
We were up at 6:30a.m. and left the hotel before 8:00a.m. We made it to Toledo by 5:00. We were in our driveway before 6:00p.m. after a trip to the grocery store. All animals are alive, well, and happy to see us! Now the fun part of cleaning out the car:(
Yes, we would leave tomorrow and do it all over again if we could! There were a few meltdowns along the way, but the laughter and experiences far exceeded the not-so-fun times.
... and then it crawled . . . and then it STOPPED. It took us 2.5 hours to get through the main part of Toronto . . . putting us at the hotel about 3 hours later than planned. But, I am getting ahead of myself.
Ontario has some very nice rest stops/concessions. I ask Carol if she wanted to stop, and she said . . . 'it' could wait. Well, that was for two rest stops (with very clean restrooms!), then we got to Toronto . . . and I've ...

Thank you for all for your prayers. Also, thank you to our daughter, Jessica, for being there for her brother and niece.
Now for a couple of silly observations. While driving along the ...

I had to stretch the truth a little when I realized that my cut through was like going up to see the Darlings on a back road when I was trying to get to Mt. Pilot (like my Mayberry references?). After a bit, we were back on the highway and I saw that the Machine was in GO mode. ...

So different from Dundee, Ohio, with it's rolling hills and fields tucked between Amish farms and little villages, Petersburg, population 1146, has very little to offer (no offense, Petersburg) and the RV park where we are staying, is not ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson At The University Of Toledo
I was a little scared at first of booking a room here, because of a few bad ratings, but I saw otherwise.
Yes, there is a long walk through underground tunnels to get to the FItness Center, but its worth it, the fitness facility is in the Hospital, and it has an indoor running track, and a wide variety of excercise equipment.
The pool was lovely, it was nice and warm, and it had underwater music, so you could hear music when you were swimming underwater.
The room we got (611) was a very nice room, and very well made up (I believe that it had been renovated, as the 4th floor of the hotel and the restaurant are currently being renovated).
I would definately urge others to stay here, despite the renovations, but try to get a room on the 6th floor.
Stayed at Hilton on Glendale, found it comfortable and convienent to the Zoo which we did on Sat afternoon following the Erie St Farmers market on Sat morning and Tony Packo's at Lunch. All were delightful. Sunday brunch at Glendale Garden Club which we found by chance and it is a hidden secret.
Art Museum in the afternoon. Our friends thought we were "nuts" for spending a weekend in Toledo. It was GREAT! Friday night dinner at The Real Seafood at the docks. Pricey but very good.
OK but not up to Hilton standards
As stated in a previous review--we paid a highly discounted rate...so the room was OK. Linens were worn, stains on carpet and bed, plug in bathroom didn't work, iron was broken. Not up to Hilton stanards or worth the "regular price"
Staff was quick to respond to problems but the hotel overall needs to be updated. Probably would not stay again.
Loved the pool and hot tub
Because we paid a highly discounted rate for the room, we were extremely happy though the room itself was mediocre. The highlight of the stay was the pool and hot tub. We used it two different times and had it completely to ourselves except for a couple people walking in and out. Beautiful enclosed area. The heated pool was perfect temperature. The drawback was when I asked where the fitness center was. I was told to go down the basement and follow the signs. It was a 10 to 15 minute walk by underground tunnel just to get there. By the time we got there we had had our exercise though it was a beautiful facility.
Hilton, Toledo, was an enjoyable experience
With all the negative reviews on this site of this hotel, I was a little nervous when I booked a night at The Hilton, Toledo, Ohio. I booked on Hotwire and didn't know which hotel I would get.
Much to my surprise, the hotel is just fine. I chose a king size bed rather than two doubles. It was non smoking. There were toiletries in the bathroom such as mouthwash, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion. Also, there was a coffee pot and decaf coffee.
The only negative aspect to my room was that there wasn't a fan in the bathroom.
I think the only real criticism is that the hotel needs update. Otherwise, it is clean and well maintained.
This is a Hilton?
This hotel is certainly not a disaster, but it's hardly up to normal Hilton standards. My bed had crumbs IN it, the rooms are a little long in the tooth, and my non-smoking room was smoky.
They do provide free access to a great health facility which is connected by LONG underground tunnels. But there is otherwise nothing in the area, so be ready to travel for any kind of excitement.
Had a great time!
I spent a weekend in Toledo for a friend's wedding. We stayed at the Hilton, though the reception was elsewhere. The staff was fantastic!
Very friendly and they suggested a great local pub for dinner/drinks the night before the wedding (Doc Watsons)--they even took us to and from the pub for free! Everything about the weekend was great!
Gone downhill slightly
Spent two weeks in December in the Toledo Hilton. Internet service worked in one room but not in my second room. The bathrooms needed to be renovated with new material. This once beautiful hotel is showing its age and needs a little work to return to its former self.
Renovations on the pool area is a start. My next trip will determine for me if I return again.
Not Going to Return!
The Toledo Hilton has really gone downhill compared to previous visits.
The faucet in the bathroom leaked all night. The toilet handle came off when we attempted to flush the toilet. The linens appeared well worn, and in general the room needed repairs and updates.
Hilton Toledo Needs Work
We recently had a terrible experience at the Hilton in Toledo. The first room they gave us was very dirty...gooey food in the wastebasket, pretzels in the corner, mildew in the shower, stains on the carpet and upholstered chair. Not what we expect at a Hilton. At our request, we were moved to another room that was cleaner. However, both rooms needed serious maintenance and linen replacements. The sheets looked like Goodwill rejects. This facility is long overdue for a total remodel.
