Eurostar customers and users of both Kings Cross and St Pancras stations, north of central London, will be pleased to know that the St Pancras Renaissance has been formally opened, although Marriot Corporation, the brand owner, insists that it was established in 1873! In every respect it is however a 21st century hotel, the gothic masterpiece a classic 5-star addition to London’s accommodation bank. In the original building 38 very modern suites are provided and a further 207 rooms have been added in a new annexe, Barlow House.
There is a 350-capacity ballroom, swimming pool and spa, plus two bars and two restaurants of great Victorian style and opulence. Wi-fi is limited and chargeable and some guests, or visitors, might find it easier to use the station facility which is free. Wander out through the Old Booking Hall bar, which also gives direct access for rail travellers, and use one of the many reasonably priced cafés.
Private car/taxi access to the hotel is extremely easy and if it is the Underground you require the Circle/Metropolitan/Northern/Piccadilly/Victoria complex sits beneath the property, although some of the platforms are quite a long walk. www.marriott.co.uk/hotels/travel/lonpr-st-pancras
