The 202-room Shangri-La at The Shard, London will occupy floors 34 to 53 of the 1,016-foot tower. Of those 202 rooms, 17 will be suites, and all rooms will have a "Shangri-La Bed" with patented body-contouring technology (we can't wait to find out the details on that) and designer LCD televisions.

The hotel will have a good range of business and communication features, a fine-dining restaurant as well as an indoor infinity swimming pool and a fitness center with panoramic views of the London skyline.

The Shard itself was designed by Architect Renzo Piano and is due to open on February 1. To book tickets to the Shard's Observatory, visit www.theviewfromtheshard.com. For more information about the upcoming Shangri-La, visit www.shangri-la.com/london.
