Tale of a True Renaissance: St. Pancras Hotel in London Re-Opens After 138 Years

Friday, May 6th, 2011
St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel

If you listen closely, you can still hear the swooshing of the wide Victorian dresses on women as they walked down the hallways of the St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel in the 1800s. Built to accommodate the glamor of the time, the unusually wide hallways at the St. Pancras are adorned with dimly-lit chandeliers and red and gold accents. The suites connect on the first floor of the Chamber's Quarters so guests could have a parlor room, dressing room and bedroom. As the trains rumble into the station below the hotel, you half expect to see men in dress coats and top hats step off the platform, their leather luggage properly in tow, heading into the St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel for a glass of scotch as the night's party slowly begins. The events at St. Pancras were never less than grandiose, and the re-opening party of this grand hotel kept to the same … Read the rest

Royal Park Hotel London

Bird Hospitality Group has acquired a luxury hotel in London, Royal Park Hotel London. The hospitality company has given the management rights of the hotel to US-based Interstate Hotels and Resorts.

“London is an evergreen and stable market. The returns are good and the property adjusted well with our brand,” said Ankur Bhatia, Executive Director, Bird Group. He refused to give the value of the deal, but said the group was planning to invest $400 million on expansion in India and the UK. The company is planning to acquire more such properties in the luxury space.

Half of Sheraton’s North American hotels newly renovated

Thursday, March 24th, 2011
Sheraton Park Tower

Have you noticed that the old, tired Sheraton that you used to stay in has been freshly updated – or no longer is a Sheraton?

If so, don't be surprised.

Since Starwood in 2007 kicked off a $6 billion global revamp of the chain, Sheraton has refashioned its image.

Sheraton removed 41 of its North American hotels that didn't meet Sheraton's new standards, Hoyt Harper, Starwood's SVP of brand management, tells me. That's a full 20%.

Of today's 202 Sheraton hotels in North American hotels, 103 have been recently renovated.

"Sheraton is seeing light at the end of the tunnel," he says.

The chain's makeover has made Sheraton more competitive with other full-service brands in the eyes of both developers and customers, Harper says. Sheraton competes with chains such as Marriott, Hilton, Radisson and Hyatt.

Guests survey scores indicate that Sheraton guests today are more satisfied with their stays and … Read the rest
