I stayed over one night meeting friends just prior to Christmas. We didn't want to have to worry about catching the last train home. We stayed at the Park Plaza in 2012 for the same reason. The hotel is situated right in the centre of Leeds two minutes walk from the railway station. It is also in close proximity to the huge range of restaurants and bars. They are all within a maximum 15 minutes walk of the hotel. The hotel itself is reasonably well furnished but in need of ongoing maintenance in rooms. I think that, as many guests visit on the same basis as myself, there is an attitude that as long as bed linen and towels are clean, attention to other details are not very important. The mini bar in my colleague's room did not work. Having reported it, nothing was done.
In our rooms the welcome message on the TV informed that there was a 'happy hour' when cocktails were 'two for one' every Friday. When we went to the cocktail bar we were told that there was a private function due to start and there was no other provision for us to take advantage of the cocktail offer.
The breakfast provided was varied and of good quality. Unfortunately, furnishings and floors in the restaurant were not very clean. As I say, for our purposes, only spending the one night there, the experience was adequate.
The siting of the hotel means it is very popular with parties and approaching Christmas means that the higher the demand, the higher the price of rooms. We had to pay 50% more this year than last.
