The Radisson at Laval is an older structure located within walking distance of one of the larger malls in this province. I chose to stay here because I was visiting a friend in a nearby hospital. I was able to procure a room for the low price of C$109. The hotel is a little dark and has a touch of ‘80s decor, with gold-trimmed mirrors in the hallways and what some might call "eye-catching" carpet/wallpaper. However, it is clean and the staff is pleasant.
My room has a bit of an unusual smell, so I suspect it was a smoking room in the not-too-distant past. However, the bed is soft, the pillows are generous, the heat works, and the Radisson provides outstanding bath products. In addition, the Internet is free (using it presently).
