Premier King rooms feature understated design and calming interiors, and at 32m², are the most spacious of the modern bedrooms.
A stay in a Chambers Suite will allow you to soak up the true essence of the hotel. The suites have been restored to their former glory, capturing the historic charm of the main building. With high ceilings, they are decorated with exquisite period detail, and feature luxurious marble bathrooms and fireplaces.
A stay in a Chambers Suite also provides access to the Chambers Club; once the entrance hall of the Midland Grand hotel, this luxurious lounge now acts as a home-from-home for VIP visitors, both human and hound.
Starting at 48m², and all with their own individual character, if you feel like going ‘grand’, a suite would be the perfect choice.

The spa has been designed with Victorian luxury very much in mind, and lies amidst the great brick archways of the former steam kitchens.

Treatments are available from 9am to 9pm, with the relaxation pool open from 6am to 11pm.
The hotel also has a gym which is open 24 hours.
Should you be planning a night on the town and fido just wants to rest his furry head, dog-sitting (and dog-walking) can be arranged via the Concierge, but must be booked in advance to guarantee availability.
The hotel offers a variety of dining options.
The Booking Office Restaurant & Bar features a 29m² long bar, wrapped around the original Grade I listed ticket booth. Relax in the original station ticket hall while you enjoy some modern British cuisine. Continental breakfast can be enjoyed here.
Mi & Me can be found on the Upper Terrace of St Pancras, and your pup is welcome to join you here. The name refers to the milk and meat carriages that were first used by railways in the Victorian era. The focus here is, not surprisingly, on cheese and meat. There is a short la carte breakfast menu served until noon, with sandwiches and some hearty mains served all-day.
The Gilbert Scott is the hotel’s fine dining experience. Using the very best in seasonal produce, the seasonal and varied dishes are the creation of the team of two Michelin starred chef, Marcus Wareing. There’s even a three course Sunday roast on offer – you might need a long walk first!
The Hansom Lounge fills the towering, iconic original station building. Your four-legged friend is welcome to join you here and light bites and drinks are served throughout the day, or enjoy afternoon tea from 1.30pm to 5pm.
Alternatively, try The Booking Office. Fido can’t join you here but should you get to give it a whirl, try one of the signature punches served from copper bowls or a Victorian-inspired cocktail.
A spot of dinner while you put your feet, or paws up? Room service is available 24 hours a day.
Housed immediately adjacent to St Pancras station, the hotel makes a perfect paw-stop for anyone travelling down from the north.
In less than 15 minutes, you and fido can stroll down to Regent’s Park and enjoy a run around in the expansive green spaces. Why not stop off for a drink and a woodfired pizza at dog-friendly York & Albany, before heading back to the hotel for a well-deserved rest in the Hansom Lounge.
