Park Plaza, one of the Radisson Rewards brands, has launched two offers for anyone looking for a London hotel stay over the next few months.

As well getting a discount of up 35% on your room, you can also get a 2-4-1 ticket to various attractions run by the Merlin group.

Get 2-4-1 tickets to Merlin attractions

As most of its London hotels are concentrated around Waterloo, Park Plaza is an obvious choice if you are planning a London trip which takes in a Merlin attraction.

The image above makes the point very clearly!

As you can see here, anyone booking a room at a Park Plaza hotel in London qualifies for 2-4-1 tickets for the following attractions:

  • The London Eye
  • The London Dungeon
  • Shrek’s Adventure!
  • SEA LIFE London Aquarium
  • Madame Tussauds London

With the exception of Tussauds, all of the above are within a 5-10 minute walk from Park Plaza County Hall and Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, pictured below. It is 10-15 minutes walk from Park Plaza Waterloo and Park Plaza Riverbank.

You’ll need to hop on a tube at Waterloo for Madame Tussauds, but it is a direct trip on the Bakerloo line ….

You can pre-book your attraction tickets, so there is no risk of finding all of the available slots taken when you arrive in London. Park Plaza will send you a special booking link within, they claim, two hours of receiving your hotel booking.

You must book direct via this page of their website to get the 2-4-1 attractions deal.

Given the cost of some of these attractions (standard London Eye tickets are £24.50, SEA LIFE is £27 in advance), the 2-4-1 deals do offer a good saving on the cost of your room.

Park Plaza also has a ‘kids eat free and stay free’ policy’ which will keep your costs down further.

Save 35% too …..

Running alongside this offer, Park Plaza is also running a ‘35% off’ promotion.

The discount is based off Best Flexible Rate. Rooms are fully cancellable up to 24 hours before arrival. There is even a swimming pool at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, although based on recent feedback I recommend booking a slot before arrival due to restricted numbers.

You need to be a Radisson Rewards member to get the 35% discount. You can sign up here if you are not already a member – it’s free.

The sale dates:

  • book by 5th September
  • stay by 30th September

Upgraded rooms types are included in the sale. It is not just on standard rooms.

Further details on the sale are here.

Amex Platinum cardholders get free Radisson Rewards Gold status

If you have The Platinum Card from American Express, remember that you automatically qualify for free Gold status in Radisson Rewards for as long as you have the card.

    I tried changing a reservation there (booked with the £89 offer) and just like the cancellation button online, changing it online wasn’t possible. Calling them gave a response that the booking also can’t be changed because of the special rate, and to make the change (to any other date in June) would require paying the difference to the supposed 35% off member’s rate (which is £108-110 on the cheapest date).
    Having Radisson Gold (from the Amex platinum) had no impact, they were unwilling to do anything but make me pay a difference. It would seem like it would be smarter to keep people from cancelling.
