As a result of The Shard's spiral shape, each guestroom and suite, which range from 98 square feet to 616 square feet, is individual in layout and design.

All guestrooms have floor-to-ceiling windows with unrivalled views across the city, marble-clad bathrooms with heated floors, separate bathtubs, Acqua di Parma amenities and mirrors with integrated television screens. Over a third of bathrooms will have city views.

The hotel will also have a bar on the 52nd floor, two restaurants, a 24-hour gym and London's highest infinity pool.
