When I first opened the door I wondered what the unusual smell was, so the window was instantly opened, which was a bonus as I like to have fresh air. Still not sure what the 'odour' was, but it eventually became less obvious. The carpet was dirty, the bedside tables were stained & the lighting in the room is extremely dull. I booked a room for 3 people, so the one king & one single bed were fine, however there were only 2 cups & 2 towels for us. The phone in the room didn't work to request more items, nor could we have a wakeup call due to no dial tone. When I requested a wakeup call (due to the end of daylight savings & an early flight we didn't want to miss), I was told it couldn't be made to an international mobile number, & it wasn't.
Wifi was only accessible in the foyer, & considering most communication is done via the internet it would have been better if we could access this from our room.
After 2 nights at the Park Regis we have left exhausted. Our room was in close proximity to a nightclub around the corner and the music was loud and late both nights.
Although the Iocation is convenient to shops and restaurants, I can't recommended this as a pleasant hotel to stay in.
