Default Radisson or Marriott?

I have rooms held at both hotels for our precruise and I can't decide which would be the best. Both rooms are water/marina views and about the same price, Radisson is a little cheaper but not enough to make a difference if the quality of the hotel isn't great. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions. Thanks.

If you cruising out of Ft Lauderdale, I've heard the Radisson is not very nice. You usually can't go wrong with a Marriot Hotel, but you might want to check their web sites and compare. If it were me and the price was the same, I'd go with the Marriot. Happy sailing!

I've personally never had a good experience with a Radisson hotel. Even if the hotel is attractive or well-located, I've found the service at this chain to be spotty at best, and often quite poor.

Marriott is a far superior chain IMHO. All other things being equal, I'd spend a few bucks more to avoid Radisson.

The Marriott is definitly better.It has a nice outdoor pool/bar area overlooking the waterway and the property has been kept up nicely.

We have not had good experience with Radisson and have had good experience with Marriott. I am not familiar with the locations mentioned, but in general, Marriott is far superior.
