Enjoyed the stellar service, ease of check in, cleanliness of suite, pleasant interactions with staff, loved the coffee and real cream available in lobby and the central location to downtown Stratford.

Hotel is excellently situated for the Stratford Festival Theatre, and it is quiet, clean, comfortable. No problems whatever. We were there to go to six play performances in three days, so the amenities of the hotel (pool, dining room) weren't used.

This hotel doesn't look like much from the outside but inside it is nicely decorated with good amenities. The king room was very spacious and beautifully decorated. The bathroom was clean and very large with a deep soaker tub. It was a quick 10 minute walk to the Stratford Festival Theatre. The breakfast in the on site restaurant was good... More

Hotel was great and close to downtown Stratford and Festival Theatre. Check in/Check out staff very friendly and helpful. We had an unappetizing dinner at the hotel restaurant and the server was rude and accused us of bringing flies in with us and told us we should take them away with us when we leave. We got limp wet old... More

The Arden Park is the best hotel in Stratford. You are treated like an honored guest in their home. The staff are on their toes, well trained, friendly and knowledgeable. We already have reservations for next August, our 17th year of staying in the Hotel. We look forward with pleasure our next visit, and relish all of our past visits.

A cut above, from the front desk to our room to the dining room. Our first visit to Stratford began with free parking followed by a very helpful front desk; these people know their town and will eagerly share detailed info on dining, theater, etc. Our room was all we hoped it would be... spacious and clean, well appointed, quiet....

Apparently this hotel bought into the Best Western chain and had a huge renovation which was finished about 18 months ago. Previously we would have passed on staying here (old and horrible staff), but took a chance and were very pleasantly surprised. We had to wait a while before someone checked us in, but eventually we were given keys to... More

I have not stayed in a Best Western since I was a child. What a pleasant surprise! The hotel was well-appointed, clean and modern. The beds were very comfortable, and the showers had good pressure. The location was a bit beyond the Festival theater, but still very walkable. Planning on switching my fall accommodations here after this experience.

Another exceptional experience at a Best Western property! From the moment you check in with reception to the final drop-off of keys at the end of your stay, it's a pleasant experience. We've stayed at many other first-class hotels, but they don't compare with the overall experience, and exceptional value, we always have at Best Western
