Park Plaza announces London launches

Park Plaza Hotels Europe has announced plans to open two new London properties. The two new hotels will make the chain the largest hotel operator on the capital’s South Bank. County Hall Park Plaza, a 395 room property, is set to open in 2008 opposite London’s former administrative headquarters near Waterloo International station, while the Westminister Bridge Park Plaza will offer 930 rooms and conference space for up to 1,000 delegates when it opens in 2010. The hotel will be the largest of the Park Plaza Hotel & Resorts worldwide portfolio. With these two additions to its portfolio, Park Plaza Hotels Europe will operate more than 2,200 guestrooms in central London. Boris Ivesha, President & CEO of Park Plaza Hotels Europe confirmed the two developments and added: "County Hall Park Plaza and Westminster Bridge Park Plaza will be stunning additions to our already highly successful network of quality hotels in key destinations. The two hotels will represent our commitment to continual growth and development here in the UK and we are delighted to be opening these well in time for the 2012 Olympics." County Hall Park Plaza and Westminster Bridge Park Plaza are both owned by private investors in partnership with Galliard and Frogmore Property Company Limited.
