I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Tiara Park for a business sales conference.
Our company chose Porto primarily because of its proximity to a local manufacturer in Braga and because of the overall "value" associated with the hotel and the historic yet modern city.
We typically choose contemporary hotels but decided that based on the many positive trip advisor ratings that this hotel would be a "safe" bet (and location was not our primary criteria and generally it was only a 10 minute cab ride to anywhere in town).
Sure enough, it was pure satisfaction and the hotel management/staff did a wonderful job accomodating our every need throughout the stay.
I was fortunate to have checked in to their second largest suite with two upscale washrooms, a kitchen, dining room/living room and sizable bedroom with flat screen TV.
The suite was tasteful, well designed and cozy. If I had one little complaint, I would say that my mattress was a little stiff but that's probably a local thing based on my travel experience.
The hotel restaurant/bar and conference facilities were all well appointed, comfortable and offered quality food (BIG BUFFETS), beverages and service. You feel as though you're in a large boutique hotel with a pleasant aura of calm and charm. The staff exude a warmth that is almost "family like" and generally have good comand of the english language (but some better than others which was just a little frustrating at times).
We had the opportunity to hang-out in the lower level "club" on the saturday night of our visit and had quite a lot of fun although it's more 70's disco (if you like that level of action).
I would highly recommend the Tiara for business or personal stays and can reassure you that this well run hotel will go out of its way to provide you with a superior experience.
The city of Porto (although slightly run down) offers a wide array of historical venues and is extremely well known for its superior Port wines (both red and white).
Surprisingly, it also has a modern "west coast" edge to it and I was pleasantly surprised with the airport, concert hall and choice of world class "fusion/asian" restaurants along the ocean.
My only regret is that it would have been nice to spend a few more days in Porto......
