We stayed at the Plaza from March 10th through to the 19th. If you are looking for a comfortable hotel, within a taxi, bus or tube ride to central London (yet not pay for the high priced hotels), you should consider Plaza on the River. The staff is courteous, responsive, and very attentive to your needs. If you have a question and they cannot answer on the spot, rest assured you will hear from them within minutes with an answer. Our motivator for using Plaza on the River was the kitchen. We reserved a one bedroom suite on the ninth floor and had a Thames River view. I requested a view of Big Ben but the rooms were unfortunately sold out. I noticed from reading other posts that a free upgrade was offered at check-in but we did not receive one. No big deal really. Rooms are spacious for Europe, had a separate bedroom, family room with a pullout bed, washer/dryer, dishwasher, and two burner stove-top from Miele. There was a TV/DVD Player in the bedroom and family room which meant the adults and children could watch their own programs. There was a main Tesco store which was a cab ride away for major groceries and there was a very small convenience store just outside the hotel that carried a basic selection of groceries, wine, beer, munchies, etc.
If you are not adverse to walking, you can actually walk to Big Ben, The London Eye, and Westminster Abbey. If you are a foreigner, simply purchase a London Pass with a travel card. The travel card allows children to travel on the tube (subway) for free provided they are accompanied by a fare paying adult. The London Pass itself grants you access to the most major attractions for free.
During my stay I watched a Chelsea soccer match as the stadium was a 15 minute taxi drive from the hotel. I do plan to visit London to watch soccer matches in the future and will definitely consider Plaza on the River
