The first good thing about this hotel is that it is a 2 minute walk from The Westminster underground station. You simply walk over the bridge (past the London eye and South Bank Lion) and there is the Park Plaza right in front of you. The moment you enter, there are friendly staff on hand to see to your every need – someone to welcome you and point you to the right place to check in & a concierge desk to your right. Other reviewers have commented on the ‘dark’ lighting, and so I was expecting some sort of dull, dank place lacking atmosphere. The reception area (desks etc) is black but it is all tastefully done and to be honest, it was a relief to step into the shaded coolness and quiet after blistering sunshine outside and the hustle & bustle of the London underground.
We were allocated room 1188 on the 11th floor (this hotel is serviced by at least 8 elevators so not much waiting involved) and we found we have been upgraded to a suite. The moment we entered our room, we were in pure luxury. We had a living room (sofa, desk, flat screen, table with phone). The living room also contained the wardrobe (ironing board & iron, safe, drawers, lots of spare hangers, 2 luxury XL bathrobes, shoe shine, etc etc). We also had a small kitchenette which was brilliant and had everything you needed to buy your own food and eat it; microwave, sink, cutlery drawer, plates, glasses, wine glasses, tea & coffee supplies, kettle and room in the mini bar for you to chill your own stuff.
The bathroom was brilliant – huge, lovely bath as well as a large separate shower. In the bedroom area there was a very comfortable bed with lovely, crisp bed linen, another desk (with international power points for charging), a second flat screen TV…….this suite had it all, including an amazing view of the London Eye, Big Ben & parliament.
The breakfast was wonderful – a lovely restaurant with great staff and endless options. A full English (including haggis & black sausage) cereals, fresh fruit, pastries, juices, toast – there was so much and it was all fresh and delicious.
We enjoyed every single minute of our stay and loved this hotel. There honestly isn’t one bad thing that I can say about it, no negatives at all. Perfect location, wonderful staff, great food, comfortable, clean, luxurious and modern. And the lighting is mood lighting and works well; it’s not something to complain about and works well in the communal areas. I would recommend this hotel to anyone for any occasion in a heartbeat.
