Day two in London to the NFL experience,Buckingham palace, hard rock, St James Park and Westminister Abbey. We started the day getting on a double decker red city bus and headed to Regent Street for the NFL experience. There were a lot of Viking and Pittsburg fans and a whole bunch other football fans. The street has a lot of high end shopping, …

London- We made. It!!

We made it! The flight was good and we were able to find Denise at the airport. Our first mission was to find the tube. After a couple wrong turns we finally found the tube with the help of a pilot and a great ticket agent. We are Londoners or tourist because we have an oyster card and were able to get on and off the train we had two stops and …

Laundry and moving hotels today. Laundry was Done and back to the hotel by around 10:00 for 11am check out. Decided it might be easier to walk to the Park Plaza Riverside than battle the stairs in the Tube. It was another nice day.. A helpful Postie saw us looking at the map and suggested a small detour that took us along the Thames river. It took …

Coronation Crap

... out, we had a wait list, there were some gate crashers, there was a coup of sorts, and well, there were 24 people! I know of three people who cancelled but there may have been more. Our agreement is that if we cancel we are responsible for our share of the cost, since the whole thing is arranged on the basis of an expected number of riders. Sometimes there might be someone to take your place, and you’d get out of the cost. It is fair. I lost my ...

    Great hotel! We'll definitely go again


    I was there with my wife at the end of June 2005. We had a great time!

    Exceeded my already high expectations


    I have stayed in a lot of hotels in London and this hotel was a breath of fresh air! It's location is fantastic - right on the river front overlooking the houses of parliament and just along the river from the London Eye. The hotel is very contemporary and the design of the reception/bar/restaurant and bedrooms is very impressive. When we arrived we were offered 20% off our evening meal if we booked a table at their Chino Latino restaurant - this was because the hotel had just opened. We booked a table and it was a fantastic meal - the food was very imaginative and well presented and the cocktails are a must! It doesn't feel like you are dining in a hotel restaurant. I would have still been impressed if they had added 20% to price and not taken it off!

    Beautiful hotel with lots of problems


    This new hotel is very nice by London standards and I didn't even mind the location even though it's a bit outside of central london. After traveling all night from California, I arrived early at the hotel and the checkin staff made no effort to accomodate me any earlier than their published checkin time. Returning from dinner about 10:30p, our cardkey would not work. I made 5 trips to the front desk, and ultimately they had to remove the whole door locking mechanism to let us into our room. Then the air conditioning did not work at all and the windows would not open. They moved us to another room and the AC did not work there either. I heard other guests during checkout complaining about no AC. I complained to the guest relations mgr, and they gave me a voucher for a free weekend stay. When I subsequently tried to use the voucher, they claimed it was only for one night even though it does not say that and specifically says for a weekend stay. I'm glad my weekends are longer than one day; and I'll certainly avoid these Park Plaza Hotels in the future.

    Stylish but lacking in substance


    Having read the other reviews before booking to stay here on business, I was surprised by the inadequate service at the hotel.

    Definetly Recommended...Great Hotel!


    This was our first visit to London, and loved the hotel!We are used to staying in five star hotels like, the st.regis, etc...but this is definetly a four star! It is brand new and clean. The room we stayed - we were it's first guests!

    We were first given a room by the railroad tracks and asked to be moved, and they upgraded us to a partial waterview of The Thames.

    Although it is not centrally located, it was a 5gbp taxi ride over to the parliment square area.

    The concierge was excellent and really helpful.

    Excellent Value


    Fantastic value for money, but it is a new hotel so the prices will probably rise. Large rooms, contemporary design. Location is not too convenient but tube is a 10 minute walk away so it is fairly easy to get into the centre of town. Great image. Would definitely stay there again.

    Superb value at the moment - some teething problems


    Stayed here for 2 nights while taking in Live8 endurance test!

    How many times can one be checked in


    Booked a superior non smoking double room for 1 night business stay.

    Great, modern hotel...


    I recently stayed for one night at the Riverbank Park Plaza after a last minute booking with priceline.

    The hotel was very modern with extremely helpful and courteous staff. The room was great - a pretty good size with digital TV plus a fantastic bathroom with separate shower cubicle.

    Whilst I didn't eat in the hotel I did have some cocktails with a colleague in the bar and can thoroughly recommend the Nadege and Chico Latino Mojito!

    All in all a very good hotel, particularly in light of price obtained through priceline.

    Very nice 4-star hotel, but...


    The hotel's room facilities, restaurant, bar, and service are of extremely good quality. Rooms are clean, beds and furniture are brand new and very comfortable. Great breakfast. Stuff was really friendly and accommodating. However...

    ...Our room was quite small, smaller than a 4-star hotel room should be. It had no view other than that that of an inside courtyard, and no opening windows. It felt claustrophobic. For that reason alone, I can't give more than a 3/5 rating to this hotel.

    It's a shame really. I really enjoyed the hotel in all other respects.
