I had not stayed at a Raddison before but wanted a place close to Central Station. I would definitely stay here again and what would bring me back was the exceptional staff but not the view.
I did have a sliver of a view of the water but if you are expecting panoramic views forget it and settle for getting out of the room. Just a few tips, if taking the train as soon as you exit Central you will turn to your left and walk just a few hundred yards and you are at the hotel. Normally, I would not stay by a train station but this is not that type of area so try it if you have afew extra dollars to spend. This place is also very close to shopping. When you are ready to venture out, just keep going past Central Station and you will find various shops including the tourist area. You are not too far from Old town and I walked from hotel and back.
As far as food , there is plenty around- for fans of Waggamama there is one just afew doors from the hotel. If you want to do something interesting keep going to the international street vendors and your nose will be hit by the intoxicating smells of Thai, polish etc cooking.
I am not a fan of hotel food but if you want to have a fabulous breakfast try the Waterfront's buffet just once-how much food do you really need to eat.
All in all I had nice stay with a hotel that that obviously invest in their people. By the way, requested a king bed but it was two beds pushed together but considering I did not move when I went down for nighty time did not matter.
