In early December 2011, I stayed 3 nights at Howard Plaza. We booked superior King with two beds but we both were quite surprised how small the room was in comparison to other rooms/hotels of the same sort. Though, the hotel seems quite grand with all the stores and what not, the interior, plus the rooms are quite dated, especially the bathroom. The girl at the front desk was unable to answer many of my questions and my check in took some time. Aside from that, and room aesthetics, I did have an okay stay with no other complaints. The hotel is located about a 10-12 minute walk from the train station, which I had no problem with. The concierge staff were super helpful and really caring. They provided me with maps and great insight of where to go and visit and just after one time conversation, they remembered me by name and always greeted me with smile. I definitely appreciate this sort of courtesy and so if I were just reviewing them, it would be a perfect score however, I do have to keep everything in mind. Most of the guests that I noticed were from Asian countries, with a few British and Europeans. There is a shuttle from the hotel to the airport that runs every so often. All in all, my stay was okay. I liked the location, and most of the staff, but some rubbed me the wrong way. Also for a hotel of this stature, room to room makeover would be nice. And just because I didn't feel too comfortable as in cozy in my room, I would probably not come back. However, if there was a re-modelling done within the rooms and bathrooms, I would have no problem in coming back.
