We booked this hotel as it was a reasonable price for a family room for 2 adults and 2 children, and it looked nice on their website. We usually stay in the Radisson Mayfair, but know that their family rooms are 2 double beds, which doesn't suit us now that our son is old enough to need his own bed. The room we were allocated at the Park Plaza Westminster had two single beds and a double sofa bed in a separate seating area, separated by the bathroom and a little kitchenette area, with a microwave, sink, mini fridge and enough plates, glasses, cups and cutlery for 4 people.
Having young kids, we really appreciated the compact kitchenette area, as we were able to bring food in from the nearby supermarket, to microwave and serve. A nice family-friendly touch that you rarely get in a city centre hotel.
The floor to ceiling windows overlooked Waterloo station, but there was very little noise through the glass. The bathroom was clean and housekeeping was good.
We didn't eat in the restaurant. It was open p,an from the first floor reception desks area, across the large lobby. It didn't look the sort of place that would be keen to have small children running around. We opted for the ground floor coffee shop, which was very relaxed and welcoming.
The hotel is located on the south of the Thames, very close to both the London Eye and the London Aquarium, which also shAres it's roof with McDonalds! So the kids were happy with the location choice.
Taxis were easy to find, lined up outside the hotel main entrance, and also on Westminster Bridge.
We enjoyed our stay, and would definitely stay there again. We also recommended it to my sister as she's planning a trip to London with her husband and children, and felt that the kit hen area would entice her to book a room here.
