We have been delighted to showcase the Riverbank Park Plaza London as our Venue of the Season on our website over the past 4 months. Keith Barron, our Account Manager for Park Plaza Hotels, came in to see us recently to catch up and give us an update on the new openings and updates on their London properties which we thought would be useful to share.
The new and exciting developments are due to take place in London over the next year and this will give them over 1,000 new bedrooms across a number of hotels to cater for a variety of budgets
Here is just a brief outline on their future plans:
A40 / Park Royal London project
In West London, they have acquired, subsequently sold and signed a long term lease agreement for a two-acre site opposite Park Royal underground station. This is a high-profile gateway location with prime frontage onto the A40, a major arterial route into the city.
Construction of this 168-room hotel is underway and the hotel is expected to open in 2016.
Waterloo Station London project
Construction has started on this new hotel project in London, near Waterloo Station. When completed, this hotel is expected to add 494 rooms to their portfolio. The hotel will also offer a swimming pool, spa, restaurant and bar. The hotel is expected to open in 2016.
Art’otel London Hoxton
The Art’otel London Hoxton will enjoy an ideal location in London’s trendy Hoxton, just a stone’s throw from the city’s Square Mile. Around 350 guest rooms will combine with a modern top-floor restaurant and bar, a relaxing spa and a publicly accessible arts centre. This will include an art gallery, space for video artists and photographic studios.
Art’otel Battersea, London
The Art’otel London Battersea Power Station is planned to open in 2019, in a building designed by Foster + Partners and set around the historic Grade II listed Battersea Power Station.
The 160 plus, luxury bedroom, lifestyle hotel will offer incredible guest amenities with a number of show-stopping skyline floors boasting panoramic views leading up to the stunning Roof Garden designed by the New York High Line team, James Corner Field Operations.
More information will hopefully follow in late Spring, so watch this space!
