The St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel has a long and storied history beginning in 1873 when it opened as the Midland Grand Hotel to accommodate travelers passing through the St. Pancras Rail Station. Built by architect Sir George Gilbert Scott, who had designed dozens of churches beforehand and whose greatest dream was to build a great gothic public building in London, the building saw several uses after it's heyday as a hotel, before falling vacant and unused for 76 years.
Located in London’s up and coming neighborhood of Kings Cross, the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel has risen out of the years without purpose to become one of the city’s most luxurious hotels, restored to its former glory as one of London’s iconic Victorian landmarks. Meticulous attention to detail gives way to gothic ornamentation and period wallpaper, while the double staircase in the lobby, wide hallways, and 2,300 fluer-de-lis make a grand statement of opulence.
There are 207 guest rooms and 28 suites among the original chamber building and the Barlow House, the hotel’s modern extension, added during its full renovation. Rooms in the Barlow House are contemporary in design and finishes, while the Chamber rooms and suites located in the original hotel building have high ceilings, ornate moldings, and expansive windows to take in views of the city. The Sir Gilbert Scott Suite has been restored to original 1870’s style with hand-blocked wallpaper, recreated from a small fragment that was found under a mirror.
Michelin-starred chef Marcus Wareing heads the Gilbert Scott Restaurant which utilizes local produce and serves up classic British cuisine in the dining room. The Booking Office Restaurant and Bar, set in the historic ticketing office of St. Pancras Station, serves up English fare and a wide array of mixed drinks recreated from the Victorian era as well as bespoke cocktails at the impressive 95 foot-long bar. Spend time luxuriating in the spa with treatments that incorporate African, Indian, and Asian techniques, or set out into the city to explore the many famous sights of London.Request Information
