“good experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2004

Spent the night here on 2-27-04, and had a business meeting at the hotel. Good restaurant, reasonable prices. Hotel was clean, and staff was efficient & helpful. Walls were kind of thin, I could hear the TV running all night long from the adjacent room. Other than that, everything was fine.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2004

I am a frequent business related traveler, but this was my first stay here. Very nice hotel with helpful, informed staff. Location is convenient to everything. Hotel is completely under 1 roof, including pool, restaurant, and lounge which was nice given the bad weather outside. Restaurant provided great Food with good service. Hot Breakfast Buffet was a real plus. Did not visit lounge, but the previously noted band was not noticable. Will return. Excellent value for the money.

I stay at the Plaza Inn at least twice a year, and each trip is for a 3 - 4 day stay. The noise level from the pool area is unacceptable way into the night, and the bleedover from the live music in the bar area is also unacceptable. If you need to get some sleep, stay somewhere else. Guests at this hotel seem to be unconcerned that people may be sleeping at midnight and beyond.

I had to change rooms twice during a 2-night stay this past week. The first change was because I had rented a room with 2 beds and I was given a room with one bed/one fold-out couch. I tried to make it work, but it was an uncomfortable room. I was given no price break. The second room was near the restaurant which is poolside. When I returned to the hotel that evening, the music was so loud from the bar, no way could I have slept. Hotel staff informed me that the music would last until 1:30 am.

When making my reservations, I had requested a non-poolside room. This second room was poolside. So, at 11pm Saturday night, I was changing rooms yet again. This time, my room was not poolside, but was right around the corner from the front desk. I could still hear the music booming from the bar, could also hear guests pounding on the bell at the front desk to get assistance at 2am.

This third room was also not really acceptable - it was a handicapped room and definately had a bad smell. I was given no adjustment in price after all this.

The food in the restaurant is barely fair. It will get you over your hunger, but there is no element of satisfaction in the eating.

There is one good point at the Plaza Inn. The hotel staff is very nice, very helpful and quite pleasant. I am going back to Garden City in two weeks, and after years and years of staying at the Plaza, I am going somewhere else from now on.
