Southend-on-Sea, home of the longest pleasure pier in the world and seven miles of award-winning beaches, is the perfect city for a business meeting as well as a leisure weekend out. Located along Southend's Western Esplanade, overlooking the mouth of the River Thames, this hotel will provide excellent modern amenities and welcomes both leisure and business travellers. The Park Inn Palace is only a stroll away from a wide variety of shops, pubs and restaurants as well as museums, shops, theatres and casinos. Southend-on-Sea is easy to reach by rail, car and airplane. Two mayor railway lines from London, two main A-Roads as well as a close location to London's main airports make Southend-on-Sea ideal for efficient business meetings. The hotel features 137 comfortable and well-equipped guestrooms, including inter-connecting rooms for families and accessible rooms. Many rooms have stunning sea views and balconies. All rooms are equipped with LCD flat screen televisions with pay-per-view movies, climate control and high-speed wireless internet access.

This stylish restaurant can seat up to 80 people offering a fantastic sea view to all guests. The contemporary RBG bar provides a range of drinks and beverages, such as selected wines and classic cocktails in a relaxed atmosphere. Make sure to not miss out the spectacular view on the longest pleasure pier in the world during day or night, for example during the Sunday Lunch or one of the famous Jazz Nights. The Park Inn Palace will be the perfect location for your next meeting or event, offering superior meeting rooms at a cost effective price. The 7 function rooms, including a large ballroom (250m2), all feature natural daylight, high-speed wireless internet access and latest audiovisual equipment.
