Arriving from Paris on the Eurostar Train on Friday evening a couple of weeks ago, if trains got any closer maybe you would get off train into reception area of this truly remarkable hotel. Brilliant location at St Pancras Station,
I have as the world’s most traveled person stayed in some 7000 hotel beds, so have a pretty good idea of what is good about hotels. Have to say the restored to its former glory of the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, is grand, majestic, the ultimate place to stay in London.
I have eaten many times in the booking hall restaurant and bar, in the former booking hall of this station building with the original wooden shutters of the counters still in place. This restaurant is really popular with hotel guests as well as commuters using St Pancras to travel to their homes, around end of business day it gets pretty busy, the restaurant is also frequented by local people who come to enjoy the excellent menu provided by the Executive Chef. I met the chef a really helpful man by accident when asking directions to my room. The Chef has worked with the best of Chefs, at the Savoy and other famous restaurants and hotels, you can expect many and, do receive many exciting culinary delights, added to the remarkable atmosphere, with a terrific ambiance, there is good musical entertainment here in the evening’s.
I am impressed with the hotel lobby and check in it really is something to see. Check in was quick and I was on the way to my suite the Queen Victoria Suite it is a twin roomed suite and as I had a business associate from the save the Concorde group with me on this trip, we decided to share the facilities of this remarkable apartment, also would be suitable for young children, the plugs are tamper proof for little fingers the doors cant slam have an ingenious stopper high upon the door again the little ones cant get locked in or trap fingers and finally all furniture sharp corner have a a smooth clear plastic edge, all very safe and unobtrusive.
The lounge is beautifully furnished with dining table and chairs, occasional tables and a luxurious deep sink into settee, some nice artwork on the walls a curved room with warm cozy natural wood flooring. Flat screen TV in all three rooms and en-suite facilities in each room. Of course there are the usual high speed Wi-Fi, ample plugs for laptops and mobile phones and any other appliances you need to plug into the electricity. the bathroom amenities are of the highest luxury quality. The large king size beds are very comfortable with a choice of pillows soft hard etc. The Queen Victoria Suite has an amazing view down Marylebone High Street. There is use of the Chamber Club down stairs close to the reception area, a more secluded lounge with many rooms for the discerning guests to use, read, or try the chef specialties of the day, has a remarkable staircase leading up to the first floor and close to the executive floors.
The Chamber Club allows drinks, wine, spirits, beers, juices etc, a true oasis to conduct any meeting, the food served in the chambers Club both hot and cold snacks and while not a full dinner very substantial and again very tasty and delightful to eat here. Breakfast is served here a great buffet selection of juices, hot and cold selections, cereals of many types, and a full English breakfast can be fully enjoyed here, if there is some thing you don’t see like for example Eggs Benedict the very charming waitress from eastern Europe is only to happy to order for you.
