The delayed opening of a £40m hotel within Britain’s tallest building is to finally go ahead this spring.
The 202-room Shangri-La hotel in the 1,000ft (305m) high The Shard in south London will open to guests on 6 May.
But it will not be until September 2014 that all the rooms will be available in the hotel, which will occupy levels 34 to 52 of the building near London Bridge station.
The hotel had been expected to open last spring.
Room rates are set to start at £450 and suites as much as £3,250 a night.
