HISTORICAL NOTE: curved plan reflects the original alignment of Pancras Place, now Pancras Road. The hotel was one of the first to include rooms on the "continental system" with bedrooms en suite with sitting rooms. The company prided itself on the fireproof construction of the hotel, with thick walls dividing every room and with the corridors constructed of brick arches supported by iron girders.
