Located in the lovely Park Avenue section of Winter Park, FL, this hotel is literally in the middle of downtown where you're steps away from an abundance of fine shops, galleries, and restaurants (not the least of which is in the hotel, itself). The Park Plaza was built in the 1930s and retains a lot of the charm, as well as the quirks, of that period. The restaurant and lobby are on the first floor, while the rooms are on the second floor, accessed by a vintage elevator that requires you to, after pressing the call button, open the door upon its arrival, slide a brass gate to enter, close the gate, and press a button - up or down; quite safe, but a little tight for more than two people. Our room overlooked Park Avenue, had its own sitting room and a balcony with wicker furniture. The room was clean, but on the genteel-shabby side with inadequate lighting and a bathroom that almost requires you to step outside to change your mind. All in all, we enjoyed our stay, and our meal in the restaurant; however, at the nightly rate we paid, unless staying in the heart of Winter Park is an absolute requirement, we'll look elsewhere on our next stay in the area.
