Clarion Collection Hotel St Albans
Clarion Collection City Centre 4 Star Hotel in St Albans is situated in the heart of St Albans historic city centre, opposite the magnificent Abbey and close to some excellent shopping, restaurants and traditional pubs.
The front of the hotel is a grade II listed St Albans landmark building built in 1911 by Samuel Ryder, donor of golf’s prestigious Ryder Cup, to house the business of his successful seed company. It retains many original features including leaded light room screens, sweeping staircase and a magnificent mahogany and stained glass dome.
Samuel Ryder’s original fireplace surround - complete with hand carved initials - still stands in his private office, which is now the principal meetings/function room – alongside the Fairway Room and the Crush Lounge.
At the rear of this beautiful building, 60 modern guest rooms were built in 1999 to create the superb St Albans Hotel.
