St Pancras Chambers to house Marriott Renaissance hotel

A 245-room Marriott hotel will form part of the restoration of London’s St Pancras Chambers when it opens in 2009. The 30,000sq metre Victorian building is currently undergoing restoration under a management contract with the Manhattan Loft Corporation. Its completion will include the redevelopment of the former Midland Grand Hotel at St Pancras International Station, as well as 67 new apartments at the top of the building. The newly-formed Renaissance St Pancras Hotel will include two restaurants and bars, a business centre, ballroom, a function room and eight meeting rooms. Marriott International president and managing director of international lodging Ed Fuller said that restoration of St Pancras Chambers would lead the revival in London’s Kings Cross area. "The opening in 2007 of the St Pancras International rail station will serve as the central London Eurostar Terminal and will provide important transportation links to continental Europe’s high speed rail network," he said. "We’re confident that this Renaissance hotel will be a catalyst for the success of this extraordinary project."
