... to the airport!!! In true Therese fashion I unload the bags, while she gives me tips on how to do it! O PLEASE!!!!!! Bags on trolleys we hurry Therse out of our lives and look forward to the rest of it, check in, security n customs. We here on the grapevine that it is a very busy day at BNE so we need to head downstairs to make sure of 2 things, 1. We are seen to the official people that even though we have spent $10k+ just to get to this point we are ...
... feel as if we were getting closer to home. Hard to believe that the beach is raked over every evening but I suppose you never know what will be left in the sand.
You have mixed emotions at this point as it is the end of the ride - the sense of elation of having completed the ride, alive and well of the trip most people dream about doing. A little sadness to that it has come to an end. However, there's always another time and for ...
... again in awe. We went through the New Orleans land, where we went through a haunted house, set up to look like a plantation from the outside. We saw the Wild West land but didnt go on any tides here, they had a tatzan section i enjoyed! we saw a big pirate ship and went on a pirates of the Caribbean ride! There was a big Alice in wonderland section which I loved, so naturally I got a photo with the Cheshire Cat and in a teacup! I even made Rachael come ...
... and arrived in about 30 min, dropped the car and went to the flight. One nice thing was they didn’t ask you to take off your shoes at security so it was more convenient. I guess since we were flying within Canada to Toronto as opposed to going to the U.S. We flew Air Canada to Toronto; the seats had seat back entertainment, so that made the flight go by faster. We landed on time in Toronto and then had to make our connection to the U.S. Depending on where you are ...

It was OK
Not alot of channels on the TV, kind of a seedy neighborhood
I spent 3 weeks (business trip) in this Hotel between March and April 2005.
1-The Front desk very rude particularly a lady named Heidi, no courtesy,
politeness or even a minimum customer service formation.
2- The room service sometimes forgets your order.
3- Sometimes you get late or no wake up calls and if you call the front desk
they blame it on the automated system.
4- My colleague asked for a room with internet, he wasn't told that it is
going to be a smoking smelly room with internet, and when he wanted to
change the room, the answer is no because they are fully booked.
5- The gym is a joke, on their site it is called a fitness center and the reality it is just one small room with a maximum 3 people fitting in the same
My advice is for the price that you are paying find yourself another hotel.
Nothing special. In a busy area of Koreatown. The front desk actually wanted to charge us $20 because we were sick and wanted to stay here an hour past check out. I'm glad I got this hotel through Priceline. Not worth full price.
We loved this hotel. Very clean and centrally located. There is a metro-link station across the street and a bus stop in front of the hotel. Fast food and nice restaurants are in the immediate area. Our room was clean and well appointed. We will stay here again.
Just returned from a four-day-trip to L.A. The Radisson provides all the necessities for a vacationist: spacious rooms (twin bed), clean and well-maintained however a little bit worn out. Nice lobby, average restaurant, small outdoor pool. But you don't come to L.A. to swim in the hotel pool, do you? And then this hotel is the best in town if you want to explore L.A. without a car. Why? Right in front of the hotel is a bus stop and the express bus goes all the way to Santa Monica. Even better: just across the street is the Metro station Wilshire & Normandie, and with the Metro you can reach Hollywood, Downtown, even Pasadena. All for 3 bucks a day. You can even reach LAX airport by Metro - for $1.25 one-way. If you plan to go to L.A. and don't want to spent whole lot of money on rental cars, choose the Radisson as your place to stay. I definitely will stay there again!
Okay But Not Great
This hotel is ok. Don't plan on anything fancy. I was really glad I had paid a cheeper price for this hotel through priceline.com. It is in a decent part of town. There is a small fitness center with 2 treadmills, bike and stairstepper along with some hand weights. My room was small, had a moldy shower curtin and wallpaper coming off the walls. It is approximately 5 1/2 miles to the Mann's Chineese theater, Ripleys Believe it or not & the Kodak building. I would not suggest walking there, drive and park it will cost you a couple of dollars but the area is not very safe after dark.
Loved it....will go back there anytime
I just got back from a 5 night stay at the Radisson and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's in a good area and I felt safe there. The staff are very friendly and the room was clean and quiet. The only downfall was the toilet. It was one of those 6 litres/flush, low water use toilets and they don't work well at best. Anyway it had to be repaired a couple of times because the tank would not fill up with water. No problem, I just called down to the desk and someone was there within 5 min and fixed it right away, even at 12:30am. I was impressed. I plan on going back to LA next summer and will definitely stay there again. I also got a reduced room rate through Expedia.
I first got there I was treated with no respect I carried my own bags. When I got to the front desk again the man was rude. I had called before to conform and reserve my room non-smoking room. Guess what I got a smoking room. I went to the so called workout room I went in and to my suprise it had no wights for a decent workout I am a well fit man and was looking foward to stay in the workout room most of my stay. I was in the Unicom class so I did not have time to go see the city and wake up early. Needless to say I did not get to workout like I wanted to I worked out in my room it had more resources to get a workout. I went down to the lobby to see where I could go entertain my self, again no helpI asked for directions, and suggestions there was no help again with attitude. I went on the streets walking around asking people on the street and got a greater response from the people who did not have a job to help me. My time in the room I took advantage of the free trial of music video, and I was charged for it. My sleep was so bad there was a cover under the sheet and it would wrinkle up and give me the most unconfortable sleep. I was on the 9th floor and still heard the noise on the streets. I also found out that the other people had got a better deal with out the Unicom discount. So now I say I will stay at the Radisson Wilshire never again.
Not so good
Pretty rundown in a part of town that doesn't have a lot to offer.
Conference rooms are tatty and a bit seedy.
Nice place, good location
Nice place, not pretentious. Nice lobby. Good value and location, close to everything I wanted to see - Hollywood, Beverly Hills and downtown. Parking wasn't bad for this area, $14 a day.
