We booked for 2 nights in an outside room and requested to pay extra for the executive lounge. I also stated we were coming to London to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday treat. We arrived at the Park Plaza at about 1pm and were booked in by a very pleasant young man who told us we could leave our bags as our room was not ready. We returned at 3 pm and were shown to our lovely room shattered after our 2hour walk in the heat. Our bags were delivered promptly along with a selection of delicious complementary cakes and a card for my husband. After a rest we went to explore the hotel pool and gym looked good but we did not have time to use them. Went into the exec lounge at about 5pm with the most fantastic view of Westminster. Also available was afternoon tea of an amazing array of cakes and scones with clotted cream and jam. After having a little more to eat and gazing at the stunning view out came the alcoholic drinks and snacks of nibbles crudités and hot snacks of calamari garlic mushrooms and chicken pieces as well as a great cheeseboard.. As my husband was replenishing our Prosseco and chatting to the waiter he mentioned that this was his birthday treat and the waiter brought us a glass go champagne and yet more cakes. Needless to say we did not bother going out for dinner that night!
We had breakfast in the lounge in peace and quiet both mornings and there was a good choice of hot and cold . Another afternoon tea and a couple of glasses of Prosseco before going out for dinner certainly gave us value for money. Service was excellent and not many people in the lounge despite the hotel being full
After reading other reviews I can honestly say we were not bothered by noise of banging doors on the 10th floor where we were staying. I felt the staff could not do enough for us. This was borne out when we were temporarily stuck in the lift which is my worst nightmare. The reception informed the public relations manager who came to our room to apologise in person. Check out was no problem at all. Rates for London are reasonable and our experience was excellent and we shall return
