On May 6, 59 out of the 202 rooms will come online, with more added floor by floor during the months after. Room categories have changed slightly since we last discussed these, so we’ll have the update for you on that next week. The two rooms we saw were of the same category, and shared design and amenities, but were very different – in fact, all rooms are individual in terms of layout.
We also spied the 52nd floor swimming pool and bar, which after 8pm will merge to become one large social space with stupendous views (though if you’re thinking that means pool party, think again). Together with the top three suites (London, Westminster, and Shangri-La), this will complete the hotel when they all open in September.
Stay tuned for the full breakdown on Shangri-La at the Shard next week.
