After reading the glowing reviews of the Park Plaza, I think my expectations were a little high... that being said, after 4 days of navigating one of my least favorite cities, it was definitely a nice refuge! For the most part, the staff speaks english, which was helpful. There is free wireless internet access in the rooms, which are comfortable and modern. The location is good as far as I can tell (it always seemed to take forever to get anywhere with the traffic, obviously not the hotel's problem!) BONUS: there is a starbucks 100 feet from the front of the hotel. Yeah!
My one disappointment with the room was the bathtub/shower. The tub was clogged and backed up with water rapidly, and the shower curtain is cloth (not plastic), which did not keep water in. The room was always soaked! And it smelled moldy. We dealt with it, but it wasn't ideal.
