Shangri-La at the Shard

FINE HOTELS & RESORTS MEMBER

Occupying floors 34 through 52 of Renzo Piano’s iconic skyscraper, the Shangri-La offers breathtaking views of London from all of its 202 rooms. The historic City of London—with sites like the Royal Opera House and the Tower of London—sits just across the Thames, while the Tate Modern, Bermondsey, and Borough Market are a short walk away. A dip in the hotel’s top-floor infinity pool and some of the city’s best dim sum (at TĪNG restaurant on the 35th level) sweeten the deal. (Rooms, from $460)
