6 reviews of Park Plaza Westminster Bridge in English
Comfy bed with a great view of the London eye and big Ben. Loved the interior. The only down side was on arrival we had to wait 25mins to get our room key. They had bad queue management. There was no actual queue. People who got there after us got served before us and when we did eventually get to the check in desk, the computer crashed and we weren’t moved to another check in desk whilst they fixed the problem, instead they made us wait for 15mins!
Fantastic deluxe modern hotel where we stayed for a special occasion. The London Eye view from the studio’s bedroom was just stunning!! I didn’t feel too out of place – there were just as many tourists as businessmen. Great decor and service.

There are two things you should know before reading this review:
1. I hate hotel bars in foyers. They make me stupidly uncomfortable. No one wants to be there, they've chosen 'there' because it's a convenient place, they're waiting for a cab, they're in Victoria and there's NOTHING else there. No one relaxes properly and most the time people's attention is on the (usually revolving door). That is why I hate hotel bars in foyers.
2. I have a disgusting weakness for good latte foam.
I came here for a meeting and felt instantly uncomfortable, due to finding myself in a foyer bar and there not being much I could do about it. But then the staff were friendly, tap water wasn't an issue and they served me up on of the best and foamiest lattes I've had in recent months.
The latte itself deserves four stars, but the generic hotel bar, in a generic hotel, in an area of town I don't much like, gets two. Smiley waitress makes that three stars from me.
Well, it's been a long time coming! This Goliath of a hotel opened in March on the south side of Westminster Bridge and has great views across to the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. On Wednesday I was lucky enough to attend their press showcase and see all on offer, as well as scoff some darn-tooting fine canapes!
A staggering 1,019 bedrooms make it one of the largest hotels in the city, with categories of superior rooms, studio rooms, suites and penthouses. The studio and suites all have a living area with a sofa bed for families and face outwards while the entry-level rooms can face into the atrium. When you first walk in, you're struck by the space-age minimal style - white floors and dark wood walls are an elegant backdrop. Check out the glass walls surrounding the welcome area and reception that are filled with a cross-hatch of led lights - they change colour and cast a different glow all the time.
Go up the central stairs to the reception - multiple check-in desks mean you'll never wait! Or, if you're lucky enough to be a VIP, head directly right where your private check-in leads to a seperate lift to whizz you to your penthouse with its own terrace.
For events, the Westminster Ballroom takes 1,400 delegates theatre style and up to 1,000 for a dinner dance in one completely unobstructed room. The penthouses and spa are still receiving final touches and should be ready by mid-end summer.
And now for my favourite thing - FOOD!
The three food outlets all had differnt drinks and food on offer - Joel, the fine-dining restaurant had french fare with canapes of foie gras, mini tarts and the scrummiest desserts - tiny white chocolate and pistachio cups, caramel eclairs and soft chocolate bisuits with raspberries. The Sushi bar was circulating sashimi, nigri and sushi rolls on huge trays with sake to wash it down. In the lounge, cocktails of vodka / cranberry or rum punch set the party mood. Downstairs the Itailian espresso bar keeps guests going during the daytime.
This hotel is great for the events industry, but I think it's also a great bar to meet in and have a drink while on the westminster / south bank area.
