    Radisson Room Designation

    Planning another trip to the Radisson. Missed last year and I know the Radisson "re branded" the rooms. So can anyone tell me what rooms are considered "Guest Rooms". I have a pretty good idea what the others are since we always stayed in a partial ocean view and two years ago for our anniversary went with Ocean View in the Aruba Tower. We will be there the first week of September for nine nights one way or the other.
    Thanks
    Mazoo

    Guest Room (from the Radisson site)
    Resort room on lower floor with a limited view in all three towers. Choice of two double beds or one king bed configuration. Rooms are approximately 378-475 square feet.

    In the past we have booked a guest room and get a complimentary upgrade to a garden view which is on a lower floor of the B and C towers overlooking the grounds between the Bonaire and Curaco towers. I interpret the 'Guest Room' as having no view. It will be the same size and configuration as your ocean view and partial ocean views with about 380 sq feet in the B and C towers and 475 square feet int the Aruba tower.

    Arubalisa posted some pictures of the Radisson and rooms here..... http://www.arubabound.com/photos/htl/rad/rad.htm Hope this helps!

    The worst view will be something green-- tree, bushes, bushes with flowers-- and/or part of a roof. The rooms in the Aruba tower furthest from the ocean on the lowest guest floor, north side, will have a view of a roof, the Occidental and the ocean beyond. The south side will face the pool and ocean but overlook the roof of Mira Sola but also over look the greenery below, palm trees etc with pool beyond.

    Bonaire tower furthest from the ocean on north and south side will have "greenery" views.

    Curacao tower furthest from the ocean on the south side on the first floor will have a view of the trees and their underbrush dividing the Radisson property from the walkway between the Radisson and Riu. The last time I was in that corner, the Radisson also had a little nursery for their resort plantings. There is a very high fence between the trees and walkway. Higher floors on that side will have a view of the Riu's parking deck but in the opposite direction a glimpse of the ocean. The north side of the Curacao tower, furthest from the ocean will overlook the roof of Laguna as well as the greenery and lagoons dividing the Curacao and Bonaire towers.

    If the possibility of overlooking a roof absolutely kills you, DO NOT book a guest room category. If you spend no time in your room except to sleep and shower, definitely go for it.

    Our worst views in 5 stays at the Radisson have been on the north side of the Aruba tower overlooking part of a roof (if you looked directly down, BUT a great view of the ocean if you faced out towards it. The other comparable view was in the Curacao tower overlooking the parking deck, but if you faced the ocean, a beautiful view of the ocean. click on thumbnail to enlarge

    My wife and I have stayed at the Radisson every year since 2004. We have never had a bad room and normally stay in a guest room in either the Bonaire or Curacao Towers. I figure since the only time we are in the room is to sleep, why bother with either a partial or full ocean view room. We will be there starting tomorrow (2/20) until March 3. Cannot wait, looking forward to getting away from this god awful winter her in the Northeast.

    We decided on a deluxe ocean view this year because we do spend balcony time with morning coffee.... after the beach and after dinner....and I had a bit of a windfall so the money was available for a change!

    Thank you all who have responded. We have been going to Radisson for a number of years (10?) but was not there the year they re did the room designations previously we have stayed in the overlooking roof in the Aruba Tower and the south side of the Curacao Tower looking at the parking roof deck rooms. Since we going to try for 9 nights this year every penny saved goes right into the penny machine. Seriously Radisson has always been accommodating with room changes if they were available. So, think will book with the guest room and as time gets closer maybe change to partial ocean view. If I can do our airfare using United miles, it's a no brainer.
    Thanks again---"See you in September"

    Thanks for the posts here. We were looking for our November trip and realized that the guest room at the Radisson was the same as we were going to pay for partial ocean view at Holiday Inn. These posts helped make my decision a no brainer! I am looking forward to our first stay here.
    Not sure when, but we will be back
