Hotel Review: Radisson Valley Forge, PA

To fulfill Kim’s stay for the Radisson Big Night Giveaway we decided to book a room at the Radisson Valley Forge in Pennsylvania. The hotel looked very nice and has a private casino attached to it for added entertainment if you are into gambling.

We booked an Executive Guest Room that had a king size bed. The room cost $120 with tax. Definitely not a cheap stay by any means but when you add in the 50,000 Club Carlson points that we will earn, I find it to be a very good deal. The 50K points will get us at least one free night at a Club Carlson property in the future but it could potentially get us up to 5 free nights.

The Work Area
I was impressed with the room from the moment we stepped inside. The room was very spacious and had a lot of nice features.

There was a nice work area that had a large desk and comfortable chair. (I took advantage of it and worked on some blog posts there)

There was also a comfortable chair to relax in and put your feet up on. It could also be used to have an extra person sleep on if needed. We decided to use it as a resting place for our bags.

The flat screen TV had a decent selection of channels to choose from.It is on a swivel stand so you can watch TV from bed or while getting some work done at the desk.

I am not a fan of the Sleep Number beds that the Radisson uses. I find them to be a pain to adjust and would prefer a normal, firm mattress. Kim didn’t have a problem with the bed and Lucas was very happy and enjoyed it very much.

The bathroom was a pretty good setup. The sink was in the room when you first walk in. Next to it is a cabinet to put your things in if needed.

The toilet and tub/ shower are in a room next to the wash area. It seemed a bit dated and small but got the job done.
A little about the Valley Forge Area:
The Valley Forge Casino Resort is connected to the hotel through a walkway. It is a private casino and opened a few months ago. If you are staying at the Radisson it is free to get in, otherwise you need to have a membership (around $30 for 3 months, good for you and a guest) or spend $10 minimum at the hotel to get a pass.
The casino is relatively small but very nice. It has lots of slot machines and some table games (I only noticed blackjack). If you’re into those games then this casino is a nice form of added entertainment to checkout during your visit.
The Radisson is in what I feel is an excellent location. There are a few things to do within a 20 minute drive.

We were definitely pleased with the Radisson Valley Forge and would recommend it if you want to visit the Valley Forge area or visit Philadelphia but stay a bit outside the city.

  1. This hotel is extremely interesting as it really depends on which room you get. There are some rooms (maybe only 1 or 2) that have no windows! Then there are some rooms that are supposed to be experience/themed like rooms.

    The location is right near the massive king of prussia mall and then only 30 minutes into philly. It is a really nice suburban area. The office I worked at for 2 years is a block away from this hotel. Personally, I’d recommend the Crowne Plaza, Marriott, Hyatt right next to the mall, but they are probably more expensive.

    Also, there is a gym right next to the Marriott (Fairfield Inn) I believe. Those who stay at the Marriott get free access, so if you bring an old Marriott room key, you can get free access 🙂
