THE iconic Great Northern Hotel in King's Cross is set to be transformed into a luxury boutique hotel in time for the London 2012 Olympics.
The development is the latest deal struck by the King's Cross Central Limited Partnership which is developing the King's Cross area.
The Victorian 19th century Grade II listed building will be restored, refurbished and brought back to life by the consortium. The hotel will have 94 luxury bedrooms, a bar and a restaurant and is set to open in late 2011.
David Partridge, joint chief executive of Argent, the asset and development manager of King's Cross Central, said: "The Great Northern Hotel was the first of the great railway hotels built at the height of the Victorian era.
