Do we know if the grand opening is going to be in June or July? I think I might fancy a trip to London this coming summer before the madness of the Olympics, it'd be great to see this thing from the inside. No doubt the exterior will be more than done.

I can't even begin to imagine how this would be clad otherwise. Brick? Something a bit neo-classical? Perhaps some large areas of pastel coloured render?
Well actually I see what you're getting at but if you look at the TransAmerica Building in San Francisco of pyramidal shape you can see that other forms can be used. I'm not suggesting it should be the same as that building just that there are other alternatives.

its supposed to be completed externally next May but i dont think it will be open to the public until the end of 2012/start of 2013. the hotels website says it will open in 2013
