Upgraded room made all the difference in our stay
My husband and I stayed at Hotel Stratford for two nights for my 30th birthday. I let the hotel know ahead of time and they were able to upgrade our room (I believe Room 401). It was obvious that this had once been two separate rooms with a shared bathroom, but they had made one room into a living room/bar area. My husband and I walked by another room being cleaned and it was VERY small - just enough room for a bed. So we got very lucky with this room upgrade I think. When I checked out and told the front desk which room I was checking out of, he was surprised and even said that we were lucky because that is usually the room used for the owner's family when visiting. Both front staff that I dealt with (one named Anish) were very friendly, helpful, and welcoming, contrary to what I had read on reviews. The woman running the breakfast was quite rude when I asked a question about the choice of cereal (they did have gluten-free Cheerios, which was a life saver as a Celiac). Breakfast was quite plain, but did the trick.
