AD|PR Visit
We were delighted to be invited back to the iconic St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel London. With all the luxurious five-star amenities you could dream of, right at your fingertips, the hotel offers incredible rooms and suites, a peaceful spa, mouth-watering dining and direct access to one of London’s busiest stations – King’s Cross.

The huge gothic building stretches into the London skyline, a beacon in red brick with towering spires. Convenient access to the station is right there within the hotel, just a flight of stairs away. You can only imagine the romantic meetings that once took place, with lovers travelling into London to reunite at the station.

Arriving at St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel London

With beautiful glass entry doors, a lofty atrium and high ceilings, the entrance to St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel London was just as impressive as our first visit. Guests staying in the Chambers Suites enjoy access to the private Chambers Club, and so we headed up there for a quick drink.

The Chambers Club serves breakfast in the morning and hors d’oeuvres in the evening and is just a wonderful place to relax and take a breath, away from the bustle below. Whilst we were there, we just had to visit the most Instagrammable staircase in the world.

The iconic three-tier staircase is best known for featuring in The Spice Girls’ Wannabe music video, and it doesn’t matter how many times you see it, it doesn’t lose its glamour. It is simply spectacular. It would be incredible as the backdrop for a wedding photoshoot.

The Chambers Grand Junior Suite

The Chambers Grand Junior Suite is spacious, luxurious and elegant, with soothing green walls and an epic statement mirror. It would be a stunning place to get ready for your wedding. Stairs lead to the bathroom, which hosts a standalone bath and a shower, surrounded by marble, and with a cute rubber duck, ready for an indulgent soak.

Earplugs are on offer, if needed, for a silent bath or sleep, to exclude any noise of the streets below in Kings Cross, but we didn’t need them and slept so soundly on the huge bed.

The Spa

Recently refurbished, we hadn’t visited the St Pancras spa on our last visit, so were eager to see what was on offer. We weren’t disappointed! It’s an amazing place, hidden away under the busy London streets – you really don’t feel as if you’re in the middle of a station. It’s a beautiful haven of tranquillity, with an azure blue mosaic pool, seating areas to cocoon yourself in, and a sauna, steam room and treatment rooms.

Dining at St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel London

Back up to our room to get ready for dinner, and then off to the Booking Office 1869 for an exquisite dinner. Timeless but heavy with history, the Booking Office is, as it sounds, the old station ticket hall, with wood panelling, high windows and exposed brick.

It’s a gorgeous place to dine, and we enjoyed starters of fried chicken with yoghurt and lime and salt cod croquettes and aioli, followed by a fried fish sandwich with spicy tartare sauce and a Booking Office burger and fries.

To finish we sampled some British classics; a stunning trifle, and a delicious Eton Mess. The food was amazing. We also sampled some signature cocktails from The Hansom bar, a spicy margarita was a delicious treat to end the night.
