Positive Reviews

High-class food is served

The restaurant's cooking team put in smart twists to your dish and creatively present it. They definitely make one of the best omelets of your entire life. The servers are among the most polite people you've ever met. Moreover, asking for food due to dietary requirements is easy.

Great value for money makes stay convenient

The hotel offers well-equipped suites for affordable prices. With its proximity to a medical campus, the students have been delighted to stay here. In addition, the rooms have separate sitting areas and cozy sofa beds, which mean that you can always share it with friends or family.

Ideal for special events

Commonwealth Park Suites is built to make your special events more special. You are given small desserts without any extra charges. Moreover, the staff also sees to it that you get the suites with the best views.

Negative Reviews

Minor issues with the towels

The towels are fresh and clean, but they are not that thick. They are not readily supplied to your room, so you need to go to the front desk staff each time you need them. Thus, you are advised to bring your own towel if possible.

A bit tricky to find a good parking spot

Few guests noted that parking is not nice as expected. You have to pay a fee per day to avail the valet parking. When asked for a good alternative, the staff said that you could go for street parking. It will be better if they guide you, but they did not. However, the street parking works just fine.

Small elevator

Transferring your bags is a bit hard because of the small elevator, but the staff is always ready to assist you. If you are with the elderly or children, choose a room on the first floor.
