Negative Reviews

Two becoming one isn’t always a good thing

In some cases, the double beds in guestrooms are actually just two single beds pushed together This is obviously not as comfortable as a bespoke double bed would be.

Surfing the web is a challenge at times

Free Wi-Fi is not to be sniffed at, but it can drop out from time to time at Radisson Blu Durham, meaning that your internet sessions can be rather frustrating.

Unfortunately, parking doesn’t come for free

It’s always comforting to know that your car is just outside, but it comes at a price Overnight parking isn’t cheap, so be prepared for that extra expense when budgeting your trip.
