So here is our super vague plan for the first few months of travel. The aim is to avoid air travel as much as possible!
7th November - fly into Bangkok, Thailand. Hang out for a few days in the city before spending a relaxing week on the beach near Koh Chang. Then back to Bangkok to hire a card and head north ...
Checked into our Uber Modern B&B in the old walled city of York. The friendly owner has gone all out in redecorating our room in a Japanese theme and electronics and buttons galore (press button shower, smart 3D TV, silent fridge etc). The old city has a myriad of narrow winding streets and 14th century houses and, of course Minster Cathedral, a sprawling example of a 13th century ...

Our history shapes us. It crafts the building blocks of our culture, language and identity. To truly understand a place and its people, it is important to know its history. England's history, especially here in the North, is extremely rich and interesting. Today, along with my international travel team, I delved deeper into the history of this exciting city.

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Plaza Leeds
Modern Spacious central hotel
Modern, Spacious, Clean, friendly and fantastic central location. We paid £60 a night (£80 includes breakfast) through their direct web site for a weekend break. We had a fantastic weekend staying here! The only draw back is breakfast is £14 each if you have not pre booked it so we went next door to BHS where you could get 10 item breakfast for the bargain price of £2.59.
Having caught a very early train to Leeds, it was a fantastic surprise to be able to check into our room at midday! The room was spacious and light and we were lucky enough to be on the 20th floor with a dazzling view of Leeds! The hotel is very young, fresh and funky. Scene the hotel bar is right at the front and is perfect for people watching whilst Chino Latinos has the perfect atmosphere and ambience with absolute killer cocktails! The hotel is perfectly situated and is near all the shops and bars you could ask for! Thank you PPL for a tanfastic stay !!!!
I recently stayed at the Park Plaza Leeds hotel and i have to say i had a truely memorable experience - for all the right reasons!!!
A great weekender getaway
We stayed at Park plaza Leeds several weeks ago & thoroughly enjoyed the stay.
We were quite surprised at how lovely the reception entrance was with all the coloured lights. How modern.
The bedrooms were nice & big with the most comfortable beds for a hotel.
And then there was the highly recommended Chino Latino Restaurant i read about in the Now magazine. The food was exquisite & the friendly waiter was very informative & helpful.
A great weekender getaway
We decided to try out the new (ish) Park Plaza. It's central if you're up for shopping / nightlife / eating out. The reception staff are helpful although they inevitably try to push the restaurant even as you check in. We declined. Drop off parking is available outside once you've negotiated Leeds' traffic system. Then it's a case of following the directions to the secure Q parking (also used by Malmaison). It's only a two minute walk away and the Park Plaza has a discount deal for guests. We were on the 9th floor, with a comfortable room, nice-sized bathroom - and it was quiet. I'm not sure if that would be the case in rooms overlooking city square, especially on a weekend. The bar was fairly small, minimalist decor, not particularly cheap. Better drinking spots are available nearby. Breakfast was included in the price we paid (£80). It was buffet style in the Chino Latino restaurant and filling. Overall we'd recommend the Park Plaza. Malmaison Leeds has more atmosphere, but it costs £40 per night more and doesn't include that all important breakfast. Oh yeah, and finally - slow lifts!!
We stayed at the Park Plaza in April on a two night package in an executive suite at a cost of £149.00 for 2 nights accomodation incl breakfast which was booked through their website.
We went to the hotel for the Bank Holiday break, never having been to Leeds before.Having read it was a "deluxe " hotel we were naturally looking for something a bit special. Upon arriving we had difficulty parking the car to register at the hotel as they have no car park and the road has double yellow lines and insufficient temporary parking. The car park is a good 5 minutes walk away and quite expensive although to be fare all the car parks were dear.
Fantastic hotel, great staff!
After spending a few nights at the Leeds Park Plaza, I came away totally impressed and not wanting to leave. The hotel is very modern and has top class facilities. The restaurant Chino Latinos has great atmosphere, excellent food and staff who are clued on and well informed. The rooms were clean, spacious and once again modern with a brilliant colour scheme. The front desk team were well trained and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning a trip to Leeds.
A new hotel in City Square, right in the vibrant centre of Leeds. The hotel is very modern and stylish, provides an interesting contrast with the rather faded elegance of The Queens Hotel opposite. Rooms are very comfortable and attractively decorated, bars and restaurants of a high standard. Staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. Drawbacks were limited number of TV channels, plus a 2am fire alarm evacuation during my stay. However, I would thoroughly recommend a stay here if your budget allows.
In the heart of the city centre
For those who aren't familiar with Leeds, then this must be one of the best hotels to stay in. And for those of us who are, delight in the fact that you could not be closer to the action. The hotel is brand new and situated on City Square, right in the heart of all the fantastic shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs that this university city has to offer. The lobby is swanky, the restaurant is of a high quality and the bar is open 24 hours! Although, bizarrely enough, it does not serve alcohol outside of normal hours! The rooms are plush with all the mod cons and the superior rooms have the most amazing view over the city.
