Name Changes: In 2007 to take advantage of the opening of the Eurostar terminal the hotel added St Pancras to the end of its name.
comment: Name change in 2014 dropped the St Pancras from the end of the name so as not to conflict with a newly opened hotel called the Premier Inn St Pancras. Became the first Premier Inn hotel to trial a fully automated check-in system using pods in 2008.
