London’s most anticipated hotel, Shangri-La At The Shard is now open for reservations. The hotel will officially open on May 6 2014, with room rates starting from £450.
The hotel will feature three food and beverage destinations: Gŏng, London’s highest champagne and cocktail bar on level 52; Tīng, serving locally sourced produce with a hint of Asian flavours in the restaurant, and authentic Asian specialities and two unique afternoon teas in the lounge; and Láng, the patisserie and artisan deli on the ground floor, which will showcase a selection of Shangri-La signature cakes. Level 52 will also be home to a 24-hour gym and London’s highest infinity pool and, together with Gŏng, will open in July 2014.
Three river-facing event spaces on level 34 will offer a London venue experience like none other. Spectacular views from 125 metres above the city will complement the state-of-the-art conferencing technology and tailor-made catering services. The largest of the venues, Ren, will accommodate up to 140 guests; the other two, Yi and Li, will be able to hold up to 10 and 35 guests, respectively. The entire level 34 may also be requested for a standing reception of up to 200 guests. The grand staircase connecting levels 34 and 35, with its vista of St Paul’s Cathedral and beyond, will be a picture-perfect location for wedding photography.
“We are delighted to open our reservation lines and are looking forward to welcoming guests to experience Shangri-La’s renowned hospitality for the first time in the heart of London from 6 May onwards,” said Darren Gearing, executive vice president and general manager, Shangri-La Hotel, At The Shard, London.
