December 2017: The international upper upscale contemporary brand Park Plaza® Hotels & Resorts has recently re-launched its South Bank London hotel, Park Plaza London Riverbank. Recently welcoming its first guests through the doors since receiving a multi-million-pound transformation, the hotel now boasts six new floors and 498 rooms, including Executive Rooms and Junior Suites. The contemporary guest rooms offer stunning panoramic views of Battersea Power Station, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye and is the latest addition to London’s changing skyline.
The meeting facilities which include the Ballroom, which can host up to 540 guests for a seated banquet, have also received a transformation with the addition of three new meeting rooms, the City Suites. Providing a versatile option for those requiring meetings and events spaces, these new suites are the ultimate backdrop for any type of occasion.
The interior design team, Digital Space, has created vibrant bedrooms offering a modern feel, while award winning Pan-Asian inspired Chino Latino Restaurant & Bar has undergone a stunning refurbishment, offering panoramic views of the Houses of Parliament on the first floor of the hotel.
Located on the 12th floor, the new Executive Lounge is the perfect space for guests, and is available for exclusive hire for private events and receptions. The Executive Lounge comes with a fully-functioning boardroom showcasing some of the best river and skyline views in London. The Executive Lounge is the picture-perfect place for business customers to catch up on emails whilst enjoying inclusive afternoon tea, cocktails, or canapés.
Rob Flinter, General Manager at Park Plaza London Riverbank, comments: "We are delighted to announce this major transformation and we truly feel the additional six floors add to the wow factor of the hotel. With the addition of 100 new rooms, the improved meetings facilities and the vast refurbished ballroom, Park Plaza London Riverbank is now one of the best locations in the city for a residential conference. It is not only an exciting time for the hotel but also the South Bank area and we are thrilled to be a part of London’s continued expansion along London’s riverside.”
To mark the launch of the new, improved offerings for business travellers, Park Plaza London Riverbank is working with handwriting expert and Consultant Graphologist and member of the British Institute of Graphologists, Tracey Trussell, to analyse the doodles gathered from meetings held at Park Plaza London Riverbank. Tracey will provide a detailed analysis on what their doodle says about them and their personality and how this can impact a future meeting of theirs. Delegates attending meetings in January 2018 will be offered the chance to win the opportunity to have their doodles analysed by simply booking a meeting at Park Plaza London Riverbank and leaving their business card with the team.
Tracey comments: “Most people think that doodles are made during moments of boredom, but there’s much more value in seemingly idle scribbles than people realise. Doodling is good for alleviating stress, helps with problem solving and processing emotions and can also aid relaxation by focussing the mind. Most importantly, doodling is great for brainstorming and creativity because it’s a conduit for new ideas and those all-important ‘lightbulb’ moments.”
Meetings & Events at Park Plaza London Riverbank boast a great array of refreshments for guests – all centred around the science of Brain Food with all snacks stimulating the synapses. The menu includes Coconut Cleanser with Coconut Caviar, Pickled Cucumber Jelly Roulade with Avocado, Goat’s Curd, Sour Cherry Immunity Boosters, Organic Goji Berries, Manuka Honey Organic Shots and Raspberry Spheres with Flax Seed Crumble.
