St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, London
A quirky five-star hotel in one of London's most famous buildings, the 245 rooms and suites sit behind the neo-gothic facade that Sir George Gilbert Scott designed for the Midland Grand hotel in 1873. The ideal hotel for trainspotters, some rooms overlook the St Pancras Eurostar terminal and a special "suite to seat" service will transport you and your luggage seamlessly through to the trains if you have a departure to Paris or Brussels the next day. Rooms in the newer wing have mid-century elegance, while the chamber suites are full of Victorian splendour with vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. Cocktails and afternoon teas are served in The Hansom by reception, while you can enjoy a crowd-pleasing menu in the 'grammable Booking Office 1869.
Windows in the hotel look over the Eurostar terminal and you can watch the trains coming and going.
The British Library is just around the corner, whilst the gorgeous Regents Park is a 20 minute walk away.
