Shangri-La at the Shard Is Officially Open
The day is finally here: the long-awaited Shangri-La at the Shard London is open. Following a traditional Chinese ceremony of awakening the lion, and ribbon cutting and speech by Mayor Boris Johnson earlier today two things that surely dont come together very often we stopped by this evening to see what difference a month makes.
The answer to that? A lot, with guests milling about restaurant and lounge Tīng on floor 35, where four weeks ago everything was still wrapped in protective plastic and the only guests were hard-hatted construction workers.
This time, we were also able to take plenty of pictures, which we have lots of to share with you from guestrooms (almost all of the 59 now available were booked out) to the public spaces, and of course, the views out the window. Check back tomorrow for a full tour of what we saw today at Shangri-La.
