The Spice Girls Reunite (Sort Of) Inside London's St. Pancras Renaissance
Yesterday, London's St. Pancras Renaissance played host to yet another momentous Spice Girls occasion (the first being in 1996, when the hotel was featured in their debut music video, Wannabe).
Posing together for photos on the same iconic staircase, the group announced a new Spice Girls-themed musical. Ooooh!
Just like the Spice Girls themselves, the St. Pancras has gone through plenty of changes over the years; the most major being its renovation and subsequent re-branding by Marriott in 2010. After being re-introduced to the world as a Renaissance, the hotel has received mixed reviews but never quite failed to stay out of the limelight—between the Spice Girls, a rave review by Elle, and a Kardashian appearance, St Pancras is still a London hotel people really, really wanna see.
And now we've got the Olympics around the corner. Folks were saying that London hotels just weren't getting slammed by international visitors the way they'd hoped for—which is a shame, as there's just so many nice spots to choose from over there. But we thought we'd plug in some dates for St. Pancras and see what rates the system spat out.
For the second week in July, GBP 295 is the stating rate, though if you need something sooner, they only have suites available next week, starting at GBP 425. Later on, in August, the basic room rate gets lowered to GPB 199.75.
