Venue is well known in the area, from Indianapolis, IN

We held an educational seminar and lunch for health care professionals at the Radisson Hotel at Star Plaza. Everyone in the 219 area code seemed to be familiar with the location. The hotel staff were easy to work with and took last minute changes in stride. I would definitely book with them again.


place for your events, An Eventective User from griffith in

Just last week, the new company that my mom and i just started called Reliv, held a very very large meeting at a hotel called the Radisson Hotel located in Merrillville, IN. Before we got to the meeting i wanted to look up the hotel just to see what they had to offer, and once i did i was happy to see that the overall hotel was absolutly beautiful. They had a wonderful lounge with water fall fountains and a bar, and they also had a very large conference room, and a banquet hall room for parties and other events. When the day of the meeting came and we all arrived, we were all presented with a great discount opportunity to stay at the Radisson for a weekend. The discount included a two day stay for thirty five percent off of the whole price. The also included a continental breakfast and many other free events and dinner options during your stay. The meeting went very well due to the fact that the conference room was equipt with state of the art technology for giving presentations. We also had a very nie spread of refreshments that was sponserd completly by the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel for your event needs including weddings, parties, conferences, and meetings, because the staff was very acomodating, the price was good, the offers were great. They will insure that the customer is very satisfied with there overalll performance of making sure that the customer is happy and wants to return, because i certainly to and so did most of the people in attendance.
