Ashland Plaza Hotel
I was really surprised to read negative reviews about this hotel on Tripadvisor. People seem to be split down the middle as to whether or not it's a good place to stay. People have complained of it being dirty and poorly managed, but we didn't have those problems with it. We had other problems with it...We stayed here because of its close proximity to the Paramount Arts center. Although it is the most expensive hotel in Ashland and has a great location downtown, there wasn’t much to set it apart from most hotels of its class. There was a wedding going on the weekend that we were there so it was very busy. The wedding party took over the restaurant and the entire second floor and were quite noisy at night but that’s not what kept us awake. What kept us awake was at two in the morning the cleaning crew came in to clean the roof of the building. I’m not joking. It sounded like we were sleeping under the ocean. For about three hours we heard water swooshing back and forth. Finally, after our third call to the front desk, the offered to move us to a quieter room. Even they were confused as to why the cleaning people came at that time. All in all, I would stay at this hotel again, simply because it was roomy and we were able to walk down to the theatre. In the winter it would be nice because it would be close to the Christmas lights in the park. It’s probably a step above most hotels in the area, but it’s still not quite on par with other hotels of its class.
