Shangri-La ‘The Shard’

The greatly anticipated Shangri-La hotel in the ‘The Shard’, Europe’s tallest building by London Bridge Station, is now likely to open mid September 2013, somewhat later than first envisaged.  It will mark the arrival of one of the world’s most illustrious lodging brands after a 10-year search for a suitable London location.

Taking up floors 34 to 52 – the Shangri-La will offer 170 deluxe guestrooms plus 25 suites, including two specialty offerings and a presidential suite with glass-enclosed 'wintergarden' balconies.

The hotel will offer four wining and dining options, including a gourmet deli on the ground floor, a destination restaurant and lounge on level 35, and a signature bar on level 52.

Located on level 34, the unique function space will comprise three river-facing venues, the largest of which has a total seating capacity of 110.

The grand staircase connecting levels 34 and 35 will be the ideal location for wedding photographs with the stunning backdrop of the city views.  A luxury spa on the 52nd floor – Europe's first CHI spa – will offer Chinese and Himalayan healing therapies alongside fitness facilities including gym, whirlpool, steam, sauna and an indoor infinity swimming pool. www.shangri-la.com/london/shangrila
