Executive guestrooms boast 5-star luxuries with up-to-the-minute technology including a plasma TV with surround sound and CD/DVD. The hotel is also one of the first in London to have each room fitted with both bath and walk-in shower and wireless connectivity as standard throughout the hotel.

Leisure facilities include a fully equipped gym. Those staying in executive suites and rooms have exclusive access to the executive lounge on the 11th Floor where they can rest and soak in the stunning views of the River Thames and indulge in refreshments in a tranquil ambiance.

Events facilities include the Thames Room – a 450 person capacity glass-fronted room overlooking the river. Other meeting facilities include two luxurious ballrooms accommodating 500-900 guests; both can be divided into smaller yet sizable function rooms and into fully flexible syndicate rooms. All meeting rooms provide guests with state-of-the-art audiovisual and technical equipment.

The Chino Latino Brasserie Lounge & Bar offers a collection of Asian and Mediterranean dishes. Chino Latino is already a successful concept in Park Plaza hotels in both Leeds and Nottingham.

Room rates range from £225 per night for a superior room to £350 per night for a river view suite.
