Note: At time of writing there were TWO Oak Plaza hotels, and people do get them confused. I am staying at Oak Plaza East Airport, whereas their other property is East Lagon.
The airport location is fairly new - less than 9 months old. So while the property is built and functioning, I suspect there are a few kinks they are trying to work out still. For example: The fitness center, advertised on their website is not ready yet; Using credit cards other than Visa is a manual, time-consuming process; My bathroom was missing a shower curtain and rod. Overall, these are minor issues.
The swimming pool is pleasant but rarely used by other guests. Rooms are clean, and well-kept, with basic non-brand name toiletries. Flat screen TV with ~10 channels. Beds are FIRM, and the a/c is amazing; you would never know it's nearly 100 degrees outside. Internet is hard-wired in rooms; I was able to make Skype calls with no problems. Wi-Fi also available with generally good service.
Food is offered in the lounge or restaurant. A fair variety of food and drinks are available. Breakfast was complimentary, and featured generally the same hot food each morning. The food was hot, and delicious, just didn't change much day-to-day. The lounge has sandwiches and drinks available with cozy couches, American 80s pop, 90s hits and recent r&b music. We commented about all the "fun" music in the lounge.
The price for the hotel was quite high when compared to local cost of goods. But, prices are consistent with other hotels in the area. The limited hotel industry is making some big bucks until more competition arrives.
Staff were pleasant, friendly and quite social, and added value to the stay.
Location: It's near the airport. A few minutes drive to the small Accra mall, further for everything else. There are no other businesses immediately in the area. Roadway in front of the hotel is under major construction/expansion, and for now has plenty of traffic.
Overall, I rated this hotel a 4-star, recognizing non-U.S standards of hotel ratings. In other words, this is closer to a 3-star in the U.S. I would return to this hotel again in the future.
