We booked the Park Plaza Hotel for four nights and had a wonderful experience. The entire staff couldn't have been more attentive. The hotel is old but very charming and full of character. Our room was very comfy and had all the amenities we needed. The bathroom was very small but accommodating. Each morning, at our request, we had a... More

Not a bad place to run away from modernity. Vintage hotel in a nice little town with lots to do around. Small bathroom, creaky floor, and a very strong smell from cleaning products. The hotel dates back to the 1920s so don't expect a lot of technology. Beautiful lobby.

The staff were excellent, friendly and knowledgable, We booked the adjoining restaurant for the wedding party. The food was superb and served to perfection. Apart from the breakfast being a little lacking in choice the rest of the stay was 5 star.... More

Lovingly kept hotel from the turn of the century. The staff was wonderful in assisting us. There is a old gated elevator to take you to the rooms on the the 2nd floor if you choose not to use the stairs. We booked a king suite with a balcony over the Avenue. We appreciated the complimentary water kept at the... More

Dear guest, This was a wonderfully written review, worthy of being in a travel magazine. You captured the essence of our lovely little Hotel down to a tee, not even leaving out the little squirrel on the balcony that has decided that the warm muffins with butter served for breakfast are part of his morning ritual. Thank you for taking... More

What a beautiful hotel. Very classy. All rooms on second floor. We had a room with an entrance to the porch overlooking So. Park Ave. Winter Park is a fabulous town. Park Ave. is a great street of shops and restaurants. We arrived by Amtrak train, spent the night and went back home. No car was needed. Also went on... More

Confident enough of a warm welcome and a great experience that I brought the boss along this time. Regretfully, we only had three nights, but every moment of it was truly delightful. The lovely rooms, the wonderful balconies, the welcoming and helpful staff: all contribute to a five-star stay. This is a historic property and is well-maintained, preserves the old... More

After reading some of the negative reviews I didn't know what to expect. Of course the train was loud and the bathroom was small but overall we had a great one night stay. We had a park balcony room overlooking the rose garden in the park. The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful and the location was... More

Charming, quaint hotel. Get a balcony room if you can. It's delightful to sit out there anytime day or night to people watch, or just relax The room was lovely, but the bed was the best....comfy, cozy. It was a long day, but I slept like a dream because of the bed. The staff was very nice and helpful

Don't plan on sleeping. Trains go by at least every two hours and lay on the whistle. The location is great, but not worth the lack of sleep. The service is good. Room is just average. It is quaint but needs improvements. Could not lock door between rooms. Good thing the couple in other room was with us. Often had... More

The Park Plaza has a really great location right on Park Ave, Winter Park. Walking distance to many great restaurants and bars. Attentive staff-- quick to check-in and out and the valet retrieved my car quickly. Very clean room. Tiny bathroom, but adequate.
