The Park Hotel is reputed to be the best that Bremen has to offer in accommodations. In fact, it is the only first class hotel in town, and it offers all the amenities expected of a five star establishment. However, we concluded that in its attempt to marry small town charm with a regal and luxurious atmosphere, the Park Hotel did not succeed.

While pleasant enough, the hotel is far too ritzy for the mainstream visitor, but not quite up to par with others in its class, and therefore not worth the splurge. That said, the Park does put on a stately appearance. A tree-lined drive leads guests along a lush lawn that protects the hotel from the busy streets of Bremen. The lobby is decorated elegantly in deep, rich colors; yet rooms are surprisingly plain, except for the marble fixtures in the bath.

Our well-lighted room on the first floor (#117) featured new carpet and a high ceiling. Television (inconveniently placed at floor level) and hairdryers are standard. The service was attentive, pleasant, and thankfully understanding when we reported having lost a room key. For recreation, the Park Hotel has a new fitness center and spa. In addition, many miles of dirt trails and paved pedestrian paths lead through the neighboring park, and it is a 15-minute walk to the Marktplatz and the rest of Bremen's central attractions.
