History & Heritage
Our award-winning, grade II listed hotel was first unveiled in 1854. It’s the oldest railway hotel in London and the only one designed by architect Lewis Cubitt. It’s a place that has much to celebrate and many stories to tell – from the curve that follows the route of the old St Pancras Road, to the thick, clinker-filled walls, to its place in an amazing historical, industrial landscape.
We’re proud of our heritage and passionate about keeping it alive. We have carefully balanced the past and the future to create a hotel that remains relevant, innovative and admired. We celebrate our history but look forward to our future. And we continue to create wonderful experiences for our guests.
