London: St. Pancras Hotel - The Grand Staircase

The Grand Staircase will simply take your breath away. Sir Gilbert Scott took the fascinating railway architecture to a glourious conclusion, a stairway that spirals heavenward. Everything from the carpet to the gold-on-maroon fleur-de-lis wallpaper has been fully restored. End of quote.

 

Normally one can hardly afford such a hotel but with "soft-opening" prices we spent two nights here. Took hundreds of pictures, mostly inside, of this gorgeous renovated building. A must see, not only for a photographer !!!!!
