Radisson Hotel Chatsworth
Travel Blogs from Los Angeles
After breakfast and packing the car we said a sad farewell to Sandy after a fantastic week in Arizona.
Drove to Los Angeles which took around five hours and arrived at Linda's house at around 4.30pm. Went next door to her neighbours house for dinner which was really nice!
... seat on the show and to watch Franz Ferdinand live. Soon after Steph and I drove to Santa Monica to check out the beach and pier. The pier was nice to walk on and check out. It was a busy destinations or tourists. As we drove back from Santa Monica we realised we were going to not make the Jimmy Kimmel show so we headed to another Hostel which was in West Hollywood and had free parking and free tacos for dinner. We shared a room with some awesome people from ...
... took us to the Griffith Park for photos of the Hollywood sign and views of the down town L.A. skyline.The Griffith Park has breath-taking views of LA, this has to be one of the best places to see aerial views of Los Angeles and vastness of LA, you can see Downtown LA, the new city, Hollywood Sign and much more from here. There are trails from there for better views of LA, I also spend some time in the Griffith Observatory as well. ...
Day 4 I cant believe its day 4 already!!!! So we got up super early and we went to buffet breakfast and checked out. We lined up for the shuttle to the metro and I turn around and what do I see the guy with the plastic doll! He was staying at our hotel!!!!!!!!!!! He was with the soccer group that gave me that necklace that wasn't mine on the first night so I reckon he must have lost a bet. Anyway we caught the subway and got off and got photos ...
... and dancing Disney. Heaven. Ok- that is all well and good- BUT- I have something better. Hope you haven't stopped reading- cause really, tonight I experienced the best thing I have ever seen. I am going out on a limb here (maybe a controversial limb) but I am going with - better than Cirque Du Soliel- and if you read that blog post, you will know I absolutely loved that. See next post so you don't have to read a long entry. Have I built the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Hotel Chatsworth Los Angeles
Not on the top of my list
location for us was ok, it was a holiday weekend, but even for the extremely high price, it included no breakfast. staff at the front desk was rather agumenative and not very pleasant to work with. the room was not prepared when we got there and they had to bring towels later. wonder if they really even cleaned the room. the bed was good, tv reception good with adequate movies and television progams. i liked the free wireless internet connection, which i am using while i write this. despite the positives i wouldn't put htis on the top of my list for hotels to stay in the next time i am in the area. oh, if you dont have a credit card, dont plan on staying here, they dont take cash.
I was not very familiar with the area, so I didn't know what to expect. My husband and I were going to a concert at the Hollywood Bowl and decided to take one of the bus shuttles from the Chatsworth Metro Link Station. (Which, by the way, is an absolutely great way to go the concert!) The hotel is less than a mile from the Metro-Link Station. The room was very up to date and spacious. Check in was very fast. We ordered breakfast from room service the next morning. It came on time and was very good.
If you're ever going the the Hollywood Bowl or anywhere in Chatsworth, I definately recommend this hotel.
Please stay here if you are in Chatsworth!
My boyfriend and I came to this hotel because we were on a trip to Magic Mountain. Ok, it IS about a 30 minute drive to get there, but we read reviews on most of the hotels around that area and were scared off. The room was a good deal, $80/night for 2 people.
Everything was very pleasant! During the day, you can see a view of the mountains nearby. We stayed on the 3rd or 4th floor, I don't remember. The rooms are VERY spacious for 2 people, and the bathroom is almost as big as the room! The shower DID have glass doors, but since its just me and my boyfriend, privacy wasn't an issue. The shower and the bathtub were separate, which was nice. There was a leak from the shower and it made the floor a little wet, but hey, that's nothing a towel couldn't fix. ^_~ Ask to stay in the Tower section if you book a room here.
Room service cleaned our room nicely. I couldn't find one of my razors, (nothing fancy) and I called the manager about it. He said that the roomservice might of thrown it away, mistaking it for garbage. He immediately sent up a replacement. Woot!
If you are staying here for pleasure or business, I highly recommend this place. There isn't anything around in town, really, just a few restaurants, but I'm not the party type so it was okay. We weren't there for the town, we were there for Magic Mountain anyhow. L.A. isn't too far away, if you are willing to drive. All in all, for the price we paid, I think that it was a steal.
Not Bad Not Great
Had a very nice stay AFTER finally getting the correct rooms we booked, hotel staff was nice and friendly but NEVER really seemed to go out of their way to accomadate. Hot Tomato restaraunt had a decent breakfast at a fair price. Great central location for Magic Mountain/Beaches. Rooms as stated were not booked correctly (Thanks Priceline!) and we had to use a sleeper sofa for the extra bed needed. But we would stay here again when the time comes. Paid $84.00 per night (May 2005)
Stayed there for 2 nights Nov 04. Looks good at first, but room was tired, needs a facelift. Tea and coffee was in the bathroom? no mini bar, breakfast not great, scambled eggs ok, but sausage & bacon overcooked, and salsa? Also was groped by night porter, but this may be a bonus for some!
A Very Pleasant Experience
We recently spent 2 nights at the Radison. We got an internet special at $79 a night.Compared to other hotels in the area this is a smoking deal considering the free parking (Hilton charged us $20 a day!). The breakfast buffet was not included with this special but it cost $10 per person and was really quite a good deal for a person on Atkins. The staff was pleasant and accomodating. They don't have bellmen but some maids helped with our luggage. Our room was large, pleasantly decorated & quiet. We loved having the separate shower stall & tub. We had a lovely view of the mountains from our window.The Italian restaurant was okay but a little overpriced for the quallity. Still, it was nice to be able to eat on site after a long day's travel. We would definately stay there again.
What a nice surprise!
This is definitely the place to stay if you are visiting this part of the San Fernando Valley! The hotel is clean, comfortable and well located. The staff was very friendly, especially the front desk attendants. Plus, their rates are usually MUCH less than can be found at Warner Center!
Here are a few tips: By all means, ask for a room in the "Tower" section. This section is newer than the original "Annex" section and the rooms are HUGE! Each of these rooms has three telephones, nice decor, and both a shower and tub in the bathroom. Also, ask for a room on the third or fourth floor. That way, you'll get a better view.
Look online at radisson for the best room rates. There is usually a special "Super Saver" rate there and you can save a few bucks this way. These rates are usually only available online, and no other website offers them for less.
Try out their health club/exercise room. All of the equipment is new. There is also a heated pool and spa.
Finally, if you are looking for something to do in the area, here are a few suggestions: If you like country music, go to The Cowboy Palace. It is only a mile or so from the hotel and it was the location where they filmed the Toby Keith video for "I Love This Bar." Or, if you like hiking or rock climbing, ask for directions to "Stoney Point" (one of LA's prettiest hiking areas) which is only about two miles away. Enjoy!
Nice Hotel for the Money
We just returned. Stayed 1 nt 8/8 and returned to stay 2nts 8/14,15. Same room type. Had an excellent internet rate of $79 nt.(prepay) for a deluxe king room. The front desk/cleaning maintenance staff was very nice. The rooms are very large with separate showers/tubs. WiFi Internet Service was $9.95 day(At a neighboring hotel which I have stayed frequently at it is complimentary) Included L.A. Times Newspaper Wake Up calls were on time. We had a huge balcony overlooking the neighboring mountains. Had a few problems. The bathroom lights kept flickering on and off and the sink developed a leak on the last night(8/15) leaving a big puddle after use. The balcony was huge but one problem. It had ONE plastic cracked Rubbermaid chair to sit in and o end tables. You could have easily fit 10-15 people on the balcony. Also there is one snack vending machine in the whole hotel and it was broke. Note: Did not have any problems on 8/8. Still rated the hotel above average especially for the cost vs. size and convenience to where we needed to be along with a nice staff. Decent Italian Restaurant and easy driving/walking distance to other dining spots.
We stayed here for two nights on July 30/August 1. The lobby was beautiful. Our room was a long walk from the lobby and parking and was located adjacent to the pool. The room was on the small side with two double beds. The bathroom was very small with an annoying continuously running toilet (there was a phone in the bathroom though!) Having a sink outside the bathroom was very nice with a family of 4 staying there.
There were not enough plugs in the room to recharge items (as was the same in the 3 other hotels we stayed in during this California visit) so bring a power strip to any hotel nowadays. More towels could have been provided, especially if you plan on swimming. The room air conditioner was loud. There was no place to hang a towel at the sink area located outside the bathroom and very little towel hanging space inside the toilet/bathtub area.
The fitness room was located nearby to our room and my children loved visiting here. It is nicely furnished with equipment.
We ate the buffet breakfast in the hotel restaurant as our room included that with our AARP signup. It was not a super extensive spread of food but was very nice with scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon (which always disappeared quickly) and waffles. Included were fresh fruit, bagels, breads for toast, cereal boxes, coffee, milk and juices in pitchers.
Upon checkout no one asked how our visit was nor did I see a place where I could have left comments.
Stayed 2 nights early May 2003. Hotel was clean, nicely decorated and the room was large. Had a King size bed with a small couch and desk. Large bathroom with a separate shower. Buffet breakfast was included in the room rate ($130) and was the usual fare, but had fresh fruit, yogurt and Starbuck's coffee. Would recommend staying there.
