Our Stay at Park Plaza Hotel London

Last month, we spent a few nights at Park Plaza Hotel London. It was my first time staying at the hotel. I have heard quite a lot about it so I was eager to experience it all. The reception was very beautiful. It was the Christmas season, so all the Christmas decorations were out and it was a lovely sight. The reception was quite busy with many people checking in when we got there. It was finally our turn after about 20 minutes but then the check-in process itself was really quick. The concierge helped us with our luggage and then we went off to our room.

The room was so beautiful. I fell in love with the decor, it was sleek and modern. The artwork on the walls were such a beautiful sight. I have never seen anything like it. All the amenities were spot on and in good working conditions. I loved every part of the room. It was a perfect relaxing environment.

The location of the hotel is also perfect for anyone who wants to stay in central London and explore all what the buzzing city has to offer. We didn’t explore as it was more of a relaxing holiday for us, but the hotel was filled up with tourists and it really gets busy.

The attention to detail in Park Plaza Hotel London is really good. I love the fact that there were many spots to charge our devices. Many hotels these days only leave a few sockets for some weird reason. We didn’t have this problem at this hotel at all. The cleaning was also properly done every time. The toiletries were replaced everyday and we had more than enough towels.

Another thing I really liked was the setting of the room. The kids had their own section and there was a mini kitchen in between which was so handy. I love being able to store things in a fridge, boil water in a kettle, warm food up in a microwave and wash plates in a sink, when staying in a hotel. I could do all these and more at Park Plaza Hotel London.

What to do when waiting for your flight at an airport

*Collaborative post.

You can almost see it: that holiday you’ve been waiting for all year… all that’s between you and that white sandy beach is the airport and the long wait that comes with it. After completing all the crosswords puzzles from the free magazines, you find yourself people watching not knowing what to do to spend your time. So this scenario doesn’t happen to you, I’ve put together a list of things to beat the airport boredom.

Play games

If you are travelling with family or friends, think ahead and pack some card games to keep everyone entertained. If you completely forgot to pack some games, it’s time to get creative and fall back on some classic games, like I-Spy or any games alike.

These types of games are perfect for the airport as there are many items and equipment around the airport which are new and exciting, including aircraft tow tractors, baggage carts, runway equipment and more. If you need a helping hand to learn about these products beforehand, visit an airport equipment supplier like Aviation Spares.

 

Walk around

 Remember that you are going to be sitting during your flight, so any chance you have to stretch your legs before is a good idea. Plus, you will never know what the airport has to offer until you’ve perused a bit. Munich airport has an ice skating rink during the Christmas period whilst the Vancouver International Airport is home to an aquarium. What other wonders will you find out whilst walking around your airport?

Pamper yourself

 Lonely Planet recommends spoiling yourself whilst waiting for your flight. After all, airport day spas and massage shops have become quite popular (at least at international airports). The only advice is to not “get so relaxed that you forget your boarding time.”

Another way to treat yourself is to have a breather from the hustle and bustle of the airport. You can do this by going into a quiet room or prayer room and give your body and mind some time to re-charge. I’d recommend meditation and yoga or a bit of both.

 

Visit the city

 If you have a long layover and you’re close enough to the city centre, why not go for a day trip? According to Travel and Leisure, “some airports, like Incheon International Airport in South Korea, Narita International Airport in Japan, and Changi Airport in Singapore will take you on a tour of the city while you wait for your flight.”

Don’t let yourself get hangry

 In case your airline doesn’t provide a meal or if you’re not a big fan of their standard in-flight meals, head over to the airport restaurants or any restaurants close to the airport and indulge yourself in a good meal before you board. The last thing you want is to spend your whole flight hangry and grumpy – think about the person sitting next to you. Do they deserve it? And a better question – do you deserve it? Didn’t think so.

 

Talk to other travellers

 This is a simple one that doesn’t require any explaining. If you see someone who looks as bored as you are, why not strike a conversation?

If all else fails, hit the free airport Wi-Fi. Browse the internet, catch up with friends or beat the best score on Candy Crush. The options are endless.
