Last March, we had the opportunity to stay at the Radisson Los Angeles Midtown at USC, for a work trip. Here’s what we thought!
The Radisson is located very conveniently for folks attending events around USC’s campus- it’s located across the street from one of the main gates, and its beach volleyball facility (it is California, after all).
This was the first stay at a Radisson that I can remember, and check-in went very smoothly. Since we have no status with the chain, we receive a Figueroa Street facing room, overlooking the USC campus.
Rooms were fine for a “typical” hotel. Though, I will say, Figueroa is a very loud street- try to avoid facing it if at all possible.
Later, I learned that USC actually owns this hotel, and has its hospitality students man it- pretty cool! I also loved the elevator buttons.
Other than that, our trip was so quick that we really didn’t have a chance to try out the other aspects of the hotel. They did have fruity water in the lobby, that I appreciated. Public transportation is pretty easy from the hotel- a short walk to the Expo Line station, making it easy to get to downtown, or now, Santa Monica.
I used it to get into downtown Los Angeles, where I took an amazing art deco walking tour.
Sorry for the quick review, but since this was a while ago, it’s gonna be a short one!
