Best Radisson in the World

Does anyone that stays in Radisson hotels frequently have an opinion on the nicest Radisson property in the world?

Ulp; c'mon now---- somebody must have a favorite. (Noting, sadly, that I've stayed at a number of Radissons over my lifetime, and I haven't added anything.) OK: The Radisson Kestrel Manly Beach outside Sydney.

Having only stayed at a few of their hotels I'm not really qualified but my vote is for the Radisson Quebec City - stayed there this weekend for 95 CAD on a special. The staff were absolutely wonderful - the hotel is in a large tower block near the old town and well located but really the staff were the thing. Given it was a quiet time in Quebec city but I would recommend this hotel for really great value.

Based on my limited experience with the Radissons, I will say the Radisson Normandie in San Juan, Puerto Rico. It has the shape of a boat and it is beside the beach.

The Radisson Edwardian hotels in London are nice. I've heard the new Radisson in Sydney is nice also. Regent hotels are affiliated with Radisson, and the Regent Wall Street looks awesome. I was in the Regent Las Vegas (now JW Marriott) and I was very impressed.

I would assume that Radisson would tell you that their Aruba property is #1 though.

One of their better hotels is the Radisson SAS Scandinavia in Gothenburg/Sweden.

Radisson SAS Cannes / Montfleury not that bad, even a bargain compared to other hotels in the area.

Radisson Sydney so much better that any other Radisson I stayed (mostly in Europe) that you dont believe it is a Radisson. Nice old building in excellent location, very stylish interior design, lovely bathrooms, a great split-level lounge with the friendliest staff I ever met in a hotel. And on top it can be a real bargain, I payed US$ 90 for a business double with free lounge access/breakfast.

I thought I read somewhere that the international Radisson's are owned or operated by a different company than the Radisson's in the US. Is this correct?

I think most U.S. Radisson's are franchised hotels but I know that all of the Radisson SAS hotels in Europe are run by the same company which is owned by SAS - the airline.

Based on what I've seen:

Radisson Blu Gautrain, Johannesburg: Nice rooms, generous amenities, super breakfast buffet, good bar, good staff.

Radisson Blu Frankfurt Messe: upgrades to business class almost every time. Great staff, rooftop sauna/pool is fun, super breakfast buffet
