I have always wanted to stay in a hotel with a great view, but I never have because it feels like a waste of money. My fiancé and I are currently planning our December honeymoon trip to London & Paris. We're currently comparing two different hotel options for London: (1) the Park Plaza London Riverbank with a view of the Thames River + Big Ben etc. and (2) the The Z Hotel Piccadilly (or similar).
The cons of the Park Plaza are (1) $400 USD more expensive and (2) 10 minute walk to the tube station (versus 3 minute walk). The pros are a gorgeous view and what seems like an overall nicer hotel.
Any thoughts or general recommendations? Thanks!
