Ive been staying at the Park Manor Suites since the 90's and it was my favorite hotel in San Diego. Now that I've had a chance to stay at the newly renovated property, I'm still a fan.
The Park Manor Suites was the old gay: antique, ornate, and comfortably shabby. The Inn at the Park is the new gay: high contrast jewel box colors and a little drag queeny. Happily, the rooms are much less dire than in person than the wildly colorful photos suggest.
The property is still funky in its vibe but much more modern in its feel. I particularly enjoyed the addition of valet parking for a reasonable 15 dollars a night. The staff remains the gems they were before the sale and while I miss some aspects of the Queen Anne furniture lobby, I very much enjoyed the updating of the rooms especially the bathrooms and kitchens.
Its wonderful to have a little apartment while traveling and these nicely freshened units make for a comfortable and welcoming environment. Being able to cook a little meal and having a few things in the ice box turn a trip into an experience and the new Inn at the Park, while different from its past, retains the best of what made it my favorite hotel in my home town.
