Our company Gregory Audio Visual was recently asked to undertake an event at the Park Plaza. I have to say from our side everything ran very smoothly. However just as a "heads up" for others planning an event at the Park Plaza there are a few issues you need to know. First off - The Park Plaza has loading and unloading restrictions! You CAN ONLY load or unload equipment between 7am and 11pm and there is no provision to park vans/trucks during the event period, so this means as in our case a one day job turned into 3 days!!! The hotel is in the heart of London so traffic congestion charges apply. It's fair to say the hotel does provide it's own "In House" Audio Visual but my client prefers to use our professional service instead. The conference rooms we where asked to setup in are 4 storeys underground and during our setup and derig times we found it to be extremely hot in the conference rooms and despite repeated requests for the air conditioning to be turned on we were ignored. The friendly staff did however provide us with plenty of ice cold water!!! To get access to the Plaza room with the equipment was brilliant as the hotel has a massive 4000Kg goods lift.
Due to the parking issues we ended up having to stay at another hotel some 15 minutes away where we could park our vehicles during the 3 day stay but I understand from delegates who stayed there that the rooms are wonderful.
