From the front desk to the restaurant, everything was wonderful, thoughtful, and quality. I can’t say enough about how great my stay was. I really love the pour over coffee set up in the room and all the little amenities.

Park James has a very unique vibe to it compared to the other overpriced hotels in the area. Everything in the room is well appointed, comfortable, staff is friendly and attentive, food option is limited but scrumptious. These are the main things that for me makes a hotel "the hotel". Unfortunate that they don't have a pool, but hey if they did I might move in here.

Most uncomfortable room I have every stayed in. Avoid rooms overlooking patio dining area if you need to go to bed early since they have live music well into the evening. No comfortable chairs to set in. You must lay or set on the bed to have TV. Room is very tiny with a king bed. One can barely walk around the bed to get to other side of the room. Poor lighting for reading. No bell hop service to assist with check-in plus it is mandatory Valet parking. Vehicle access is subject to availability of limited number of on duty staff.

Hello Archie S, Let me start by sincerely apologizing for not meeting your expectations. We pride ourselves on providing all of our guests the best personalized experience and a comfortable place to relax. I was disappointed to learn of your challenges you experienced. Everything from the music, to lighting, to our furniture and set up of our rooms did not meet your most basic expectations. Furthermore, your frustration with our parking options and the lack of public parking. For all of your frustrations, I must again apologize. Warmly, Lyle
