Park Plaza London Riverbank Unveils Stunning Christmas Experience
Taking inspiration from Christmas children’s classics, the Central London hotel has transformed one of its Junior Suites tocreate a room unlike any it has offered before.
For those who love the sights, scents, tastes and smells of Christmas, the suite provides the ultimate experience. A winterwonderland is unveiled as guests walk in revealing a magical scene, decorated with fir trees, snow and even a small sleigh.
Over 1,000 twinkly lights wrap the suite, with faux-fur throws and cushions to add warmth and 23 flickering candles held withinsilver and copper lanterns helping to illuminate the space. Two hundred snowflakes, 11 metres of festive wreaths and cameosfrom several magical creatures including a polar bear complete the experience.
The suite is adorned with a number of delightful touches. Lucky guests of all ages can indulge in classic Christmas fayreincluding cookies, candy canes and Turkish Delight and every child staying will find a present under one of the sevenChristmas trees! The hotel has also created a bespoke ‘Little Helper’ service, allowing guests to make a ‘Christmas wish’which the hotel will aim to deliver.
The idea was inspired by Jack Flinter who is General Manager Rob Flinter’s son. As he wrote his letter to Santa, Jack wondered how childrenstaying at the hotel would receive their presents, as the hotel doesn’t havea chimney. So, he wrote a letter to his Father to ask. A decision was madeto create the ultimate Christmas suite, including a trail to lead Father Christmas from the rooftop.
Rob Flinter, General Manager at Park Plaza London Riverbankcommented: “I was extremely touched when I read my son’s note; I justknew we had to do something to reassure him and future guests at ourhotel. We’re incredibly excited to offer this special suite over the festiveperiod and provide an extra element of Christmas cheer to those stayingwith us. We’ve pulled out all the stops to make it as festive as possibleand I can’t wait to see guests’ reactions when they see it for the very firsttime – especially when they’re greeted by Mr. Beaver himself!”
