Went for the Sunday brunch for the first time. There was a good selection of food but the problem was it was cold. I found the the hotel to be very warm uncomfortably warm and when I used the restroom there was 2 older women with walkers that I over heard saying they both had to pee but neither of... More

We stayed for 5 nights and made the Arden Park Hotel our home base for a short vacation which included some site seeing, visiting friends in the area, as well as attending several plays at the Stratford Festival, and attending a function held at the hotel itself. Even prior to our arrival the staff demonstrated their cheerful willingness to help... More

After staying here in 2014, we have returned. This is an impressive property...now with Best Western.. Our check in was most pleasant . Our room was really top notch...from the electric fireplace to the jacuzzi tub. Spotless and spacious with all of the amenities. Our experience of the Stratford Festival is certainly enhanced by this hotel.

I'm not going to tell you the room number. But it's totally renovated with a great bed, and a living room that's separate at less than half the price of its neighbours.Microwave. Coffeemaker. Big, flat screen TVs. Cable. Internet. A dining room and bar in the lobby. Plenty of parking. Friendly staff. Responsive management. Just waiting for the Best Western... More

I attended a conference and stayed for two nights in June at the Arden Park. Hotel staff were efficient and handled the large groups very well. We were in a room in the newer tower of the hotel and although there was only one elevator we did not have to wait long. This was likely due to the fact that... More

We've stayed at the Arden Park for 6 years now and always enjoy our visit. The hotel rooms have been nicely updated since our last stay. Not changed is the quality of the staff. Everyone, from housekeeping to the front desk staff are friendly and helpful. Our room had double queen beds, small refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffeemaker (which a hot... More

We have stayed at the Arden Park at least a couple times a year, well, probably ever since they opened. The large rooms, beautifully decorated and equipped, and the friendly well-trained staff have spoken volumes about the thoughtful care, experience and "hospitality smarts" of the owner. Even our dogs have been welcomed when we've travelled with them. Arden Park is... More

The Arden Park Hotel is a lovely modern hotel that apparently has a very interesting history (it was originally a furniture factory!). You would never know as the hotel appears to have been built last year, as every detail looks brand new. Super close to the Festival Theatre (just behind the hotel) and even though it's on the main street... More

We always end up staying here. My husband dislikes B &B's with their fussy decor and their forced socialization at breakfast, so we opt for hotels, which are few and far between in Stratford. They always say they have no rooms at the Arden Park and then, if I phone back the next day, they do have space. They don't... More

I've stayed at the Arden Park several times and always found the service to be good, but they are now in the midst of changing over to become a Best Western and the check-in process was poorly affected. Although my sister had made a reservation months earlier for a suite, the room was not ready when we arrived at 4:15... More
