Shangri La are operating the Five Star hotel. There will be an infinity pool which looks out onto the City skyline.

Sellar and Shangri-La did not disclose much information about the operation prices about the Shard, the only thing I know is that The Place office's will be leased for something like £55.00 per sq ft per annum.

I dare to bet that once this one is finished, people would love to dine there, enjoy the amazing tremendously unique view over London and even stay at the hotel. I SURE will be staying at whichever hotel is going to be located inside it to just enjoy the views of London and use it as my map to get around! LOL
It doesn't look so good now because not only it's very disproportionate, it's still very lonely. When Leadenhall and the Walkie Towers are complete, it will stand out just the right amount. Besides, Beetham Tower is to be restarted and it will help the balance as well.

Proper skyscraper fans would go that far.

I think people will like it more when it's externally complete. Remember, the feature that ultimately gives it its name "The Shard" has yet to appear - when it does it will be stunning.

I also plan on staying there, in a room facing the city. There will be a few more skyscrapers to look at in the city come 2013. The 225m Leadenhall street tower and the 160m Fenchurch Street tower are both deep into construction.

I'd probably be willing to spend £400 on a night.... I wouldn't leave the hotel room either. Or sleep.

I'd pull my chair up to the window and sit there... all night. Naked.

A thing this size would always divide opinions. It would be odd it it wasn't that way. And it still got built anyway.
