      Checked it out this past week - everyone said, "you should have seen this place in it's heyday", while I sucked their cocks anyway. I got invited into a few rooms, bent over and took a few loads but the best was just walking around, talking to people about what the place was, is and might become. It's in sad shape, but who cares, that isn't really important. The only bad thing is that they don't really want people leaving the curtains open while people are sucking & fucking - being watched by a group is one of my favorite things :)

      This place is a dump
      Avoid at all costs. This place is a dump. All they want is every cent out of your wallet and treat you like crap. Everything is extra. The only way they could improve this crap hole is to run a bulldozer through it and close it down once and for all

      The Phouse is full of character. Yes it needs upgrades,but this is what makes it so unique. The staff is friendly and warm,less security that is. The dance club rocks! The Cafe' and Bears Den staff are a standout.The food is excellent and very reasonably priced. Now on security. My weekends (more than 2/3 a month I spend more than 350 a weekend there.4 of the security personnel i have seen,and personally witnessed, become sarcastic and ( they attempt to mask it with a horrible presentation of politeness) rude to clientele. Me being one of them. The Parliament has recently filed chapter 11 and ,according tp the Orlando Sentinel, shall go into receivership. The last thing,and a self destructive one in my opinion, is to drive away loyal and repeat customers. Security needs training in customer service, and rules to abide by set forth. I will not lodge there again due to their behavior. To security, invest your time ridding the balconies of ,not the paying gay clients, but the ones that distinctly stand out as a creepy individual. There are ones that are there every weekend all day/night attempting to hustle paying customers for sex. You disregard them but yet harass paying customers. Not very business smart. To the Cafe' and Bears Den staff, I have grown to adore you all. And will see you again in time. So. Uber to the club. And spend the money at another establishment that welcomes it wholeheartedly.

      Hit or Miss
      Have been going to the PH since 1978,back then the place was great for cruising and you could leave your room door open,sit or lay naked on the bed and have the cruisers look at you,most will ask if you needed company if they took a liking.

      Mega complex, mega fun
      While the complex is in need a of a good "refreshening," it remains one of the best spots in Orlando. The multiple bars and mix of music allow for just about anyone to find something to enjoy.

      To All My Gay Family Worldwide
      The PH Hotel has been around for many of moons. It would be a sad day to see it leave. Stop & think about it people, some of your tricks that you bring to your room, I am sure that after the sex was over, You have smelled worse odors. The rooms are clean, Its not The Grand Cyress Hyatt, But the trade is festive. gay bars have been in bad areas for quite sometime. Do the right thing, and support The PH, Give them a chance to restore & remodel things to your likening. Rent a room, Help the PH make money & stay in business. People, Don't discriminate against our own Gay family. And remember to bring your Condoms with you. Its a sexy, Crusing place to enjoy. Bring your lovers, You all can have fun.

      Nazi Patrol Ends Parliament House Fun
      Ever since the current owners, a straight couple, took over the security has gotten more and more intense. If I am paying double the going rate for a seedy motel room on the ghetto side of town I want to have cruisers all night. The guards chase out all non-guests after the bar closes and spoil the chances of fun. What a difference a decade makes. And the stupid timeshare sits out there unsold and ever pretentious. Parliament is no longer in session. The Nazis have taken over!

      Stayed here night of 8-1-2010
      OK this has one of the most "mixed" reviews of any place on gaycities, some of you love it, some of you hate it. I decided to try it and judge for myself. Came for the Sunday T-dance and stayed over. Here's my opinion: 1. employees/managment being rude: no, they were professional and nice. had no negative encounters, mostly had positive encounters 2. bartenders being bad: tried out all the bars. all bartenders were friendly, though some drinks were better than others. probably would not have thought twice about it had some reviewers here not commented. drinks aren't cheap but if you stay there you can go to the liquor store next door and bring your own. 3. cleanliness: room was perfectly clean. there's a difference between being totally updated/modern and being clean. this place is definitely not updated, probably last remodel was early 80's? but it is maintained and clean. 4. noise: yes it's noisy until 2am. expect this, and bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper (like me) 5. the neighborhood: yes it's skanky but it won't seem overtly dangerous unless you've only lived in white-picket-fence suburbs your whole life. then again some rich-bitch neighborhood wouldn't put up with a loud-ass gay mega-plex among their mcmansions. 6. the crowd: great mix of people. tons of people of all ages, nationalities, etc. whatever it is you like, it's here, and it's friendly. All in all, I would definitely recommend this place ***if you know what to expect***. I had a blast. But if you come here expecting the four seasons, and/or if you're totally prudish about gay men being gay men and cruising, you might not like it.
