Needed a hotel room, last minute, just for 1 night. Called and got reservation, no problem. Had a late check-in and express check-out. Beautiful décor, great bed an very clean. In and out. Would love to have had a discount though as $179.00 + tax was a little pricey for this visit.

We really liked this place. The rooms were spacious and clean, and the onsite restaurant was way above average. The we did not have time to enjoy it, the pool area looked above average as well. And, on top of everything else, it's within walking distance of the Festival Theatre and its Wharehouse.

The BW Arden Park is a lovely hotel, that is very close to downtown Stratford and walking distance to lovely parks, the Avon River and the Stratford Festival. The exterior of the hotel is a bit dated looking with plain red brick, however, the grounds are well groomed and the interior of the hotel is very clean, modern and updated.... More

We visit Stratford every year for the Shakespeare Festival and stay here every year. The rooms are a good size and clean, there is free parking, nice pool (but no deep end) and the front desk is always pleasant. The food at the restaurant is good too and breakfast is a reasonable price. It is a great location, with only... More

I hope not. The Arden Park in Stratford, Ontario is an excellent hotel for overall value, a great location to stay for the Stratford Festival, its neighborhood has all the commercial amenities, the staff is exceptionally conscientious, and the rooms very comfortable. It is so good that it is difficult to get a room during the busiest time of the... More

We spent one night here with our 10year old grandaughter, not cheap at 190 cad. The room was large, well maintained with 2 queen beds, fridge, wifi, kuerig coffeemaker; very small bathroom. The pool was much appreciated by our grandaughter and other kids staying at the hotel. The restaurant was basic with good choices for children Lots of free parking... More

The Arden Park Hotel, becoming a BEST WESTERN, only a short time ago, is a mid-sized commercial hotel that is most welcoming and pleasant. It is conveniently located near the FESTIVAL THEATRE, but not near the others. Guests without cars will need taxi service. The hotel is a standard hotel with good services and facilities, but it is not exotic... More

I have stayed for years at the Arden Hotel and it has always been fine, but wow the rooms have been given a real facelift and they are beautiful. Comfortable beds, lots of pillows, great shower and a deep tub. The room comes with a fridge and a microwave and of course a coffee maker. But the best part is... More

This is a nice hotel within walking distance to the theaters. The staff is nice. We stayed in a suite which was very nice, but had a terrible smell. Once we purchased air fresheners and opened the windows it was bearable.

The Arden Park is by far the best hotel in Stratford, and one of the best we've ever experienced in our travels. The Stratford Festival is wonderful, and the Arden Park is the icing on the cake. Simply the BEST!!
