Park Hotel of Hot Springs

We booked a 3 night stay mini suite in mid June '06. Hotel still under renovation at that time. The Mini suite is basically a normal room with an added fridge and love seat. YOU DO NOT HAVE YOUR OWN AIR CONDITIONER. You have a vent to the main ac which is shared by all rooms and you have dial to adjust the vent, our dial did not work and ac air was slightly cool at best. One pillow had a blood stain on it and our dresser looked like it had been picked up at Goodwill due to the lacquer peeling off. My 1 yr old nephew was crawling on the floor and when we got him up his knees and hands were literally black from dirt. At this point we decided to cancel our stay but still had to pay for one night due to hotel rules. So we stayed and due to the general cleanliness we slept in our clothes lol and didnot sleep well due to the groan of the elevator all night which i will also mention. The elevator doors open 1 foot before it reaches the floor, scary.
The location is good but it does not make up for the accomodations. In a nutshell the Hotel is old and probably was not kept up well from the previous owner. The new owner is making an attempt to bring it up to par and i wish them all the best.

We flew to Hot Springs to meet up with a few artists from the United States. Hot Springs is all about art and we loved it.
We stayed at the Park Hotel of Hot Springs. It is about 76 years old and quite old world. This made me feel at home.

We stayed in 401. This the room where President Truman slept in 1937 (while he was still a Senator). It is a smaller room then the King Suite but the view made up for it.

The hotel is clean and quiet, yet near everything. The staff is attentive, polite and very helpful.

After dinner, we sat outside on the Veranda with our cigarette and our Cappucino

We will return to Hot Springs for the Documentary Film Festival
and stay at the Park Hotel again.

What a wonderful staff. They take the time to print you out directions and if you call them on the road like I did .they will guide you via phone to the door. In this day and age where do you get kind of attention.

Place is clean and quiet with lots of character. Love the new Restaurant.

We made a reservation at the Park Hotel for the weekend before July 4th 2006, after reading about it on this website. PLEASE, if you are reading this, heed the warning. We got to our room and were shocked at what we saw. It really did look like the setting of a scary movie! Aside from even that, it was not clean and had black hair on the sheets. The bathroom was hideous and the carpet stained with torn bedspreads. We saw no air-conditioning control inside the room. The hotel was very, very outdated. We didn't even sit our luggage down. We paid $100 for the room and went right back down the elevator and asked for a refund. The lady at the desk was so embarressed she referred us to the Embassy Suites located next to the convention center. We drove straight there, paid $135 for the room and could not have been more satisfied. Don't let the Park Hotel put a bad taste in your mouth for Hot Springs, Arkansas. It's a pretty little town with a quaint setting that is loaded with history. Take the advice and avoid the Park Hotel.
