St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, London

Last week, when I was in London, I spent a weekend at what turned out to be the most spectacular hotel I have ever stayed at.

From the very first moment I arrived at St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, I could tell this was a truly unique place: the architecture, the interiors, and, of course, the history behind it.

Here are some photos I took during a guided tour of the hotel on Sunday, Oct 25, 2012.
