When I first saw photos of this hotel, I thought it was typical that unrealistically amazing photos were posted. To my surprise, reality surpassed what I saw in those photos.
This hotel, perfectly incorporated into the St. Pancras international rail station, is a must see landmark and even has its own historic tour.
It really helps if you're a platinum marriott member (there is another exclusive section of the hotel called chambers club with beautifully appointed luxury rooms. Only folks that stay in these rooms or platinum members have access to the chambers club lounge where the attentive butler staff pamper you and cater to your every need...and really treat you like family).
"Booking Office" the hotel bar/restaurant is a happening place most nights and has great live performances on the weekends starting thursday night.
Most of the regular hotel rooms are clean and neat, but mediocre and don't match the beauty of the rest of the property, but there are a few very cool rooms some with multiple arched windows. Another negative feature is the gauntlet of large butler photo posters in the hallway to the hotel rooms, that really detract from the look and ambience of the hotel...they really should take those down.
This hotel has the look and feel of a (large) boutique hotel, and is "class" redefined.
