This was the hotel of choice for the company I worked for and I stayed every Tuesday and Wednesday for 2 years. The hotel is frequented by TV's rich and famous so don't be surprised to see familiar faces at the bar. The rooms are spacious and modern and beds are comfortable. The hotel backs onto the train lines but the double glazing seems to keep out the noise. Ask for a room with a river view (you won't get one at the front of the hotel on the river as this is a differently branded hotel (Plaza on The River) but occassionally you may get a room with enough of a view of the river to see the Houses of Parliament. Great food in Chino Latino and a great location for the Southbank.

Room Tip: As for an outside room on the side of the hotel towards the front.

We spent four nights at the Park Plaza Riverbank whilst visiting the Olympics in August. We really enjoyed a fantastic stay and, despite paying more for our room due to London 2012, we felt we still received excellent value. We were allocated a quiet room on the 7th floor which had a side view of the Thames and didn't get any noise from the railway line to the rear of the property.

Service - throughout our stay we felt that the service we received was excellent, and the staff made us feel welcome.

Atmosphere - the hotel has a modern feel to it's public areas. All fixtures and fittings were of high quality and nothing looked dated or overused. The hotel has a bar area behind the main reception but (unusally) we were not tempted in to sample the food & drink.

Value - We paid over £200 per room per night and felt this to be good value considering the prices that were being quoted by many equivalent properties during the Olympic Games. The rate was room only and we did not eat in the hotel.

Rooms - we were happy to receive a room on the 7th floor with a view of a modern apartment block and (partially) the River Thames. The bed, furniture and bathroom were all high quality and the little touches included the normal flatscreen TV, minibar, safe, wireless internet connection, and hairdryer.

Location - Outstanding. 10 minutes walk from Vauxhall Tube station (Victoria Line) and just across the road from the Thames (Southbank). It's a 10/15 minute walk along the river to Westminster Bridge, with the London Eye and everything else close by after that. The hotel enjoys a quiet, relaxed and safe location across the river from Millbank Tower and offers a quiet time within very easy reach of the city attractions. The local pubs, bars and restaurants of Vauxhall are located within 5 mins walk of the hotel.

Overall - we think this is a smart, modern, four star hotel in an ideal location. Others will be more luxurious and may have the city outside the front door, but PP Riverbank has everything going for it. The city is just a few minutes walk away and here you don't get the ridiculous crowds that can spoil many of the main tourist areas.

Special mention must go to a real ale and craft beer heaven. The Cask Pub & Kitchen in nearby Pimlico. A top class pub with an outstanding range of beers from every corner of the UK & across the World.

We only stayed for one night but the experience was a good one. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, letting us check in even though we arrived quite early in the afternoon. The room itself was very comfortable and well appointed. The bathroom was a really good size with a bath and seperate shower cubicle. The view over the train line wasn't the best ever (compared to some of the views this hotel has to offer from what I assume are the more expensive rooms) but the soundproofing was good enough that the train noise wasn't disturbing. In fact we didn't heard anything from the corridor or other rooms during the time we spent in the room and we got a really good nights sleep.
We did get a last minute deal on the price so the room was amazing value for London, especially as it was during the Olympics.
From my perspective the only downside is location. The nearest Tube station is Vauxhall. If you need places on or connecting to the Victoria line then this is marvellous but we made the choice to walk to/from Westminster to get to the places we needed to be and it felt like a long walk back at the end of a full day out. It also seemed a quiet area with not many options for eating out locally.

We have stay here 2-3 times a year for a weekend break. We try and get a Riverview Suite which has great views up the Thames of Houses of Parliment and London Eye.
Room service is good value, and reception staff generally remember us each visit.
My only negative this trip was that the hotel no longer have a car park, so I had to drive to their Westminster Bridge hotel and leave the car there £35 per day.

But the hotel did pay for the taxi bringing me back, as they had not stated no car park when we booked which I thought was good of them.
