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.

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.
