Excellent location about 5-7 minutes walk to the main Festival Theatre. Large well appointed rooms in very good condition and very well maintained by housekeeping. Had a pizza and beer in the lounge last night ( it was pouring rain out so no desire to venture downtown), and an omelette and coffee the following morning in the dining room. Both meals very great!
Stayed last year at the Parlour Inn downtown and it too was excellent. Close to the stores and the Avon Theatre. Still walkable to the Festival Theatre if the weather cooperates. This year I opted for the Arden Park which is out of the downtown but near the Festival Theatre. Either is a great choice.
No issues at all at the Arden Park. I requested a room on a higher floor in a quiet area and they delivered. Only suggestions - replace Sweet and Low sweetener (cyclamate -yuck!) with Splenda, and Coffee Mate ( back to the 70’s?) with individual creams that can be kept in the room fridge.( several brands last a month). I would also suggest Rubbermaid style bath mats for the tub - despite the pebbly finish, it is still slippery.
The Bruce Hotel next door is Stratford’s upscale hotel, but I saw no need to upgrade from the great room and service offered at the Arden Park. less
