Mediocre stay A review of Radisson Hotel & Conference Center Fresno
This hotel was not as nice as the website makes it out to be. To start with we were greeted by the sounds of jackhammers when we entered the hotel in the middle of the afternoon. Apparently they have just started to renovate the lobby as there were big piles of torn-up concrete in the lobby. The waterfall does make a lot of noise if your room is on that side of the hotel. It is kind of dark inside the lobby, it reminded me of a warehouse with a hotel built inside of it. I got this room through Priceline and called them immediately after my bid was accepted to inquire about getting a room with two beds, it sounded like it wouldn't be a problem, however when I got to the hotel they only had one bed rooms available. This may have been because they were starting to strip the rooms on the second floor. I stayed in Fresno because it was halfway between Yosemite and Kings Canyon National Parks, I was not impressed with Fresno at all, finding places to eat was an adventure. The hotel was not all bad though, the room itself was average, nothing special about it, but there weren't any problems with it either. The bathroom was big and I did like the soaps they had in there. The pool area wasn't too bad either. I think the best feature of the hotel was the bar area, it's a great place to unwind after a long day. All in all I got this room on Priceline for about $60 and wouldn't complain if I got put here again. It may be better when the renovation is complete, but again they were just starting it, so I don't believe it will be finished for a while.
