The St Pancras Hotel group, based in King’s Cross, London, will be providing free rooms for NHS staff during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The three hotels that make up the group, The Gyle, The California, and The Megaro, their hotel rooms lying virtually empty, have been earmarked to operate as self-service apartments by way of a flexi-booking service.
Operations manager Christian Kaberg said he took the decision to “create a positive impact during this impossible time for London and the nation as a whole.”
The group said it would take the following measures to ensure the safety of guests:
- Contactless check in
- Disinfection schedules in all operational areas are being maintained and monitored
- Sanitising stations are provided for guests and team members alike
All safety procedures are implemented, reviewed and tested for compliance and functionality
- From doctors through to volunteers, for anyone currently working in NHS hospitals local to Kings Cross
