This extravagant 5-star hotel was designed in the 1860s by George Gilbert Scott, who envisioned a building as imposing and ornate as Augustus Pugin’s Gothic Revival Palace of Westminster (the Houses of Parliament). The St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel was originally the Midland Grand Hotel, named for its association with the thriving Midland Railway. Today, the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel forms the frontispiece of the St. Pancras International Railway Station, also known as the “Cathedral of Railways” due to its stunning architecture.
The St. Pancras Renaissance is centrally located in King’s Cross, walking distance from the best points of interest in the heart of London. After a long day of sightseeing, you’ll be eager to return to this exquisite hotel to relax in your comfortable, spacious hotel room or chamber suite which are accessible by the cathedral-like Grand Staircase. Amidst the standard facilities of the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel—which include a spa, indoor heated pool, bar, and two restaurant options—are gothic arches, granite columns, fleur-de-lis wallpaper, and beautiful stonework. Then there’s the historic Hansom Lounge in which many weddings are hosted, the Ladies’ Smoking Room, and even an urban deli. This history-rich hotel is the epitome of contemporary luxury and lavish Victorian grandeur.
The historical setting, grandeur, warm and welcoming atmosphere combined with the hospitality and 24/7 VIP service ensure you have the best possible time in London. A stay at this one-of-a-kind hotel is sure to be an unforgettable experience.
