Radisson Woodlands Hotel Flagstaff
Travel Blogs from Flagstaff
Today we had a bit of a lay in, we woke at 6am but chatted about our holiday so far and what we were looking forward to next. We put out cases out at 8.15am ready for the porters to collect and went downstairs for breakfast. Again the usual sausage, egg and pancakes, all washed down with juice and coffee. This morning we board the bus and leave …
Before I go any further, I'll fill in the gaps from the past few days. When I woke up on Wednesday, it was already after 10 am. I was surprised to find that there was absolutely no muscular effects from the previous day’s walking, which pleased me, however I was very tired. I had planned to climb the Coit Tower and do some last minute …
327 Miles from Albuquerque to Flagstaff. We got to drive a bit of Route 66 today. It merges with the I40 that we were on. Just a few miles off our route was the Meteor Crater which we were torn about whether to see or not. It was $16 each to see a hole in the ground! Its so expensive but that hole in the ground is the best preserved meteor crater …
Once we watched our boat get loaded on the trailer, we silently boarded our bus. This was quite a contrast to the boisterous way we piled on the bus in Flagstaff 10 days earlier on our way to start the trip. Maybe we were a bit tired after nine days of go, go go, but the general mood was more of disappointment that the trip had for all intents and …
We had 6 miles left of dirt road to travel this morning, then across the Arizona plains towards Flagstaff. Today was another day of weird/fantastic weather. More thunderstorms as we crossed through Arizona with lightening strikes clearly visible in the fields around us. We travelled from the ranch where we stayed to Kingman, where we joined the I- …

TravelPod Member ReviewsRadisson Woodlands Hotel Flagstaff
After a long drive, and arriving in Flagstaff in the dark, I chose the Radisson because it was the first I saw. So glad I did. On arrival in the Reception there was a welcoming fire blazing, the decor is elegant and the staff are very friendly. There's also a fabulous looking restaurant attached to the Hotel which I will be trying out. The breakfast menu looks very comprehensive and the massive bed is sooo comfortable. The room rate is excellent. All in all, highly recommended.

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Woodlands Hotel Flagstaff
Initially we booked a Best Value Inn at Flagstaff, because all other hotels were sold out. We were very lucky, because when we arrived at that horrible place they did not give us the room, as hot water was not working. So, we booked the Radisson via hotels. We were a bit surprised that the Radisson now had an available room, but we were more than happy to book it. We arrived there at about 7:00 PM showing our reservation and the girl at front desk looked very worried and eventually told us that no room was available and that hotels.com made a mistake. I was already imagining myself in Flagstaff, Arizona, a nice village, but forgotten by God, sleeping in my car, when the girl started to check in her computer and making phone calls. Working in the hotel industry as well, I knew that was a good sign, as if you don't have rooms there is really nothing you can do... I guessed that hotels had a cancellation but did not communicate this promptly to the hotel, which proved to be the case, so we finally got a room, with our great relief. The room was fine and clean, following the Radisson standards and I have to say that the girl at the Front Desk was really helpful and kind with us.
Great Welcome Good Food Excellent Room
October 2003 Coach tour of Arizona from Bisbee to Utah. Stayed in lots of Hotels along the way all were excellent including The Radission Woodlands which was the only one to welcome us with Champagne. We had a great stay.

Wow! Where to begin? This was without any doubt a stay from hell. We were travelling with our two dogs, and the hotel has set aside rooms where they accommodate guests with pets. The morning of our arrival, we called ahead and inquired about the check-in time. The front desk assured us that the guest in the room assigned to us already had checked out, and they would send housekeeping in and the room would be available around our scheduled arrival time of 2pm. Showing up at that time, they changed the story: Suddenly, the guests had not yet checked out (checkout-time is noon!) , and we would not be able to have the room before 4pm. So we spent two hours waiting after being lied at.
Not worth the price
Stayed in the south building on June 26th. Comfortable beds, quiet room. But the south building rooms need to be renovated. Dirty/worn carpet in room and hallways. Worn bedspreads and furnishings, lamps were decorated with splatter paint. Bathroom tile was old and dirty, same with shower floor. Asked the front desk to be moved but the hotel was "sold out." Not worth the price I paid.
Somehow this hotel just didn't feel comfortable. From the confusion over where to park to best access the room, to the floors changing when walking across the skybridge, to the overly ornate and strangely placed dark wood carvings, to the guest laundry soap dispensers that were only available on the 2nd floor but didn't work, to the dryers that didn't dry clothes in a timely fashion, to the glasses in the bathroom that had splatter on the outside, to my hairbrush placed atop a supposedly clean glass after the room was made up. It just didn't click for me. I would check out other places before staying here again. The Sakara restaurant on site was good and we met some nice people at our table, but be sure and make reservations; it would have been nice if the front desk had mentioned that at check in.
A nice quiet place to go back to
My musical partner and I stayed here while visiting Flagstaff for a performance we were giving at NAU, which was only a short distance from the hotel. In the midst of a busy work schedule, the hotel provided a nice quiet retreat. Everything was clean and updated, too. I wouldn't hesitate to book a room here again for future trips to NAU and Flagstaff.
Beautiful New Rooms
Very comfortable, nicely renovated rooms. Hotel is centrally located to activites. Two great on site restaurants including Sakura Japanese Restaurant and Fresh Sushi bar.
We stayed at the Radisson Woodlands for two nights in early October - using it primarily as a base to visit Monument Valley and the Grand Canyon.
The hotel was acceptable - nice reception area and rooms. Our room was very noisy however. The people in the adjoining room seemed to be having sex all night and we could hear everything. Combined with shouting and doors slamming in the hall at about 2am it was not a peaceful hotel.
There were two restaurants - one traditional food and a sushi bar. We only ate in the hotel one night, choosing the traditional food. The food was ok but quite expensive.
Stayed here a few months ago while skiing. Price was right for 2 double beds $90/night. Rooms were good size, beds very comfortable, bathroom good size, full cable TV. Room had a patio too I think. Front desk staff helpful and accomodating. I don't remember anything really negative about this place, would definitely stay here again.
