close to the hotel

gym closed two hours earlier than stated, "king" size bed was two single beds pushed together not very well, and the breakfast buffet was total rubbish.

Wonderful Hotel - wasted at an airport

Posted 25-Sep-2016
Pros: Location - walk to terminal, building, staff, room, bed, wine cellar, clean, quiet (noise insulation)
Cons: Nothing worth mentioning!
Location: Does its job - great transit hotel short walk to terminal!
Nothing but praise praise for this hotel. I stay in a LOT of hotels - 40 years of constant global business travel - and this is definitely one of the best! Cool design, great touches - the 50 ft high glass tower wine "cellar" in the atrium is amazing...especially when you see the young lady somnelier going up and down hanging from wires to retrieve bottles of wine! A hotel of this standard is wasted at Stansted Airport - I'm guessing almost everyone just stays one night as it's a transit hotel.

I got a non-smoking room, which I could smell smoke. I felt it was a bit over priced for what I paid, but it has great access to the airport and the station, so it probably balances.

Nice hotel, very convenient for airport

Posted 13-Sep-2016
Pros: Clean, friendly, comfortable.
Cons: Restaurants tend to be over-booked, even when they seem to be half empty (told again to come back in 30 minutes)
Location: Catch a plane!
Have stayed here before when getting an early flight from Stansted. Nice hotel, much better than others in the area for a pretty similar price, and a short walk to train station and terminal.

Nice hotel but don't expect good service

Posted 12-Sep-2016
Pros: It had good facilities and was close to the airport.
Cons: Get new staff that don't treat their guests as an annoyance.
Arrived about 8PM, sat in the lounge and went to ask one of the staff if I could have some sandwiches. She told me she was busy and told me to ask the waiter in my section then walked off. I went to the bar where they served food and asked the same question. I was told by the bar person that it would probably be half an hour, then another member of staff from the bar told him they were too busy. I asked then if I was going to get sandwiches and he replied no. They were serving food all night but they couldn't get me a sandwich. What sort of hotel can't get their guest a sandwich? Their attitude to their guests is shocking for a hotel that has 4 stars. Even on arrival I had to wait in a queue for 10 mins to get checked in. Not again.

Very good hotel into the Stansted Airport.

Posted 11-Sep-2016
Pros: All.
Cons: No.
Location: The hotel is into the Airport, so it's the best for the travellers. I don't think that there are things to do nearby.
All has been perfect. The hotel is into the Airport, so it's easy to reach without any taxi or bus.

Convenient location

Posted 10-Sep-2016
Stayed with friends before an early morning flight. Great room, comfortable bed. One restaurant closed due to "technical" difficulties, food in Felini - starters were good, mains very average. Staff were pleasant but overwhelmed, thus slow service. Would stay again.

Poor Value

Posted 07-Sep-2016
Pros: Closeness to the airport terminal.
Cons: Everything could be improved. Acquire character and value for money. Ditch the microwave and use a chef.
Location: The only thing to do, hence the stay, is catch a plane. O
For the money (expensive I think) a distinctly underwhelming experience, had hoped for a luxurious nights stay before our long weekend break. The contrary proved to be the case, its was very ordinary with below average food and was a prime example of what's wrong with chain hotels - bland averageness. The hotels only redeeming feature is it's closeness to Stansted terminal. You really felt they knew they had a captive audiance and abused the pricing. £104 for a v/poor dinner for 2. Or don't business customers care? I suspect not. The final element which made our experience poor was the car parking service. If I knew the car was to be driven off site I would not have used it. Why on collection was the car radio tuned to a different station, the seat moved, steering wheel moved, air vents moved, the steering wheel covered in a sticky substance? As with the hotel no care was taken and the customer was just taken for granted. I would never (unless there was a life threatening reason) use a Radisson Blu hotel again. Anecdotal evidence from others I have mentioned this chain to have all have all had poor experiences.
