st pancras

Since we traveled back from Paris to London by train, and since we had to catch the Piccadilly line to Heathrow this morning (only this morning?  seems like a very long time ago), how could we resist the temptation of a night in the renovated St Pancras hotel.  Here's the main staircase; our room overlooked the interior of the station, or at least the part that's now been turned into a bar.  I was last here some seven or eight years ago, photographing it in all its ruined and dusty internal decay: the architecture's just as ridiculously grand, but I have to say (and much though I admire all the reconstruction), I did rather like its earlier faded and peeling moodiness.
