St Pancras Renaissance Hotel – The New Kid on the Block

I was recently in London around the Kings Cross area meeting with a venue that can offer Conference and meeting spaces.

Whilst there I remembered that I was extremely close to the brand new 5 star hotel – the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel.

The ‘all singing all dancing’ hotel has had a lot of press and is the newest addition to the Marriott Family of Hotels here in the UK.

Known to some of those not in the events and conference industry as having ‘the stairs’ that Spice Girls filmed their ‘Wannabe’ song.

The hotel is now a five star luxury hotel with direct access to St Pancras train station and have a number of conference and meeting rooms available onsite.

Unfortunately, I was unable to meet with anyone to show me the rooms but I had a sneaky peak around the hotel myself anyway.

On my arrival outside of the hotel I was greeted by doormen with bowler hats on – looking rather nice! Normally I would feel a little intimidated by such greetings but the doormen welcomed me into the hotel with warm smiles and hellos.

The lobby area of the hotel is a fantastic, light and airy space covered by a glass ceiling that links both sides of the hotel together. One side with the bedrooms and conference spaces, the other with the restaurant leading onto St Pancras Train Station.

With a modern touch the hotel still retains its character and charm and feels very comfortable to be around.

Despite not being able to see the conference rooms I had a sneaky peak down the corridor they were based and was pleasantly surprised to come across ‘The Stairs’. It actually felt almost like they shouldn’t be there as they look like they should open up into a large and grand hallway. Instead, they just split the corridor to the conference rooms up a little. Still impressive even if they were a little hidden.

With 9 meeting rooms and up to 7 breakout rooms, the hotel can accommodate up to 550 for an event. It also has been filled with tall ceiling heights, plenty of original features and a mix of modern and traditional decoration, this hotel feels every bit like the lap of luxury it claims to be. Certainly not for everyone with the prices, this venue is perfect if you want to impress your clients and one place I’ll certainly be putting forward in the future!
