When I was a kid growing up in the suburbs of Minnesota, there was this tall, glorious hotel called Radisson that I often saw from the backseat window of my family’s wood-paneled spitfire orange station wagon as I rode from our little town of Eden Prairie into the big Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. I was 8 years old when my family packed up our every belonging and watched it all drive off in a moving van toward what would be our new home in exotic Scottsdale, Arizona. Needing a place to stay for a night before we flew to the desert, my parents drove us to this tall hotel with its red Radisson sign. Because my family typically stayed at budget motels, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Were we going to stay at the Radisson?!
As my big brother and I whooped and skipped from the parking lot to the entrance, we kept asking, “Are we really staying at the Radisson, Dad, really?”
That’s my first memory of staying in a Radisson.
From Minnesota to Arizona, Canada to Europe, Africa to Australia—there are currently 419 Radisson hotels to choose from worldwide, with another 181 slated to open by 2015. The brand offers two levels of service: upper-upscale at Radisson Blu or upscale at Radisson.
