One of the most expensive hotel restorations in London comes to fruition when St. Pancras Renaissance London celebrates its grand opening May 5, 2011. The hotel has a sweepstakes restricted to U.S. residents in the 50 states and D.C. for a 3-night trip for two with economy airfare from the U.S. to London on May 4 and VIP access to the Renaissance St. Pancras Grand Opening event. Plus $300 daily cash for two ($600 daily). Prize value ARV is US$4,000.
The trip date must begin on May 4 and I assume hotel room nights are May 5, 6 and 7 with a return flight on May 8th. There do not appear to be restrictions in the terms on the return flight. Perhaps the winner can stay in the UK longer than May 8th?

St. Pancras Renaissance London restoration was a cost somewhere in the US$240 to $325 million range based on numbers of £150 to £200 million. Here is a good article from The Guardian describing the historic Victorian property and its restoration and a better article from the Daily Mail. A series of current and historical photos are on the St. Pancras Renaissance London hotel’s Facebook page.
