Way back in 2012, Radisson ran a stay one night, get one night free promotion. I wound up picking up a night at the Radisson San Jose Airport, as I was heading out of SJC particularly early in the morning trying to beat Hurricane Sandy’s landfall on the eastern seaboard. The hurricane won the race, unfortunately.
This stay left me with a free night redemption at any US, Canada, or Caribbean Radisson to use by the end of 2013. As my life is mostly composed of Starwood and Hyatt stays, I delayed redeeming this award until the use-it-or-lose-it factor kicked in. I had a trip to San Francisco planned, and at the time, Radisson wanted $265 for a night at the Radisson Fisherman’s Wharf.
The hotel’s rooms were recently renovated, so the exterior appearance is a bit deceiving.
