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.

Perched on North Main Street near Interstate 680, the iconic hotel is being offered for sale by a partnership headed by Patrick Nesbitt and his firm, Windsor Capital Group.

"It's not a fire sale," said Norval Nelson, general manager of the Marriott Walnut Creek. "It all depends on whether they can realize a certain sales value, and if Mr. Nesbitt is willing to sell at that price."

A reasonable price for the hotel could be in the range of $150,000 a room, said Alan Reay, president of Irvine-based Atlas Hospitality Group, which tracks the California hotel market.
