The contemporary upper upscale hotel brand Park Plaza Hotels & Resorts, operated in Europe by PPHE Hotel Group, is increasing its portfolio, revealing plans for a string of new openings and developments across London over the next few months.

The multi-million pound investment will see almost 300 jobs created for the hospitality industry in the capital. The new openings and the completion of an extension and reconfiguration project will increase the brand’s room count to 3,158 within the M25, making it one of the largest international upper upscale hotel brands in the capital.

Park Plaza London Waterloo, positioned as a sanctuary for those seeking a London adventure, will be the first new hotel to open and is located on the bustling South Bank.

It will be closely followed by the launch of Park Plaza London Park Royal, a centrally located property within one of London’s largest business hubs which will have convenient quality at its core.

Furthermore, the completion of major refurbishments at Park Plaza London Riverbank and Plaza on the River will see PPHE Hotel Group’s London portfolio grow to a total of eight properties.

Greg Hegarty, regional general manager UK, PPHE Hotel Group, said: "We are delighted to announce these new additions to the Park Plaza Hotels & Resorts portfolio. It follows a strong development year for the brand, which has also seen investments in Croatia and Nuremberg in Europe, and marks a huge boost to the London market.

"As London’s tourism industry continues to attract many visitors and business travellers are being drawn to the capital, we look forward to catering to popular demand while providing the contemporary design and exceptional service that is synonymous with the Park Plaza Hotels & Resorts brand.”
