Pitch due for hotel in The Shard tower

Leisure operator Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts is set to launch a pitch to find an interior design group to work on its upcoming hotel in The Shard, at London Bridge.

’We will be looking in the UK as well as internationally for a designer, and a team is being put together over the next week to manage their appointment,’ says a spokeswoman for Shangri-La.

The 200-room Shangri-La London will occupy floors 34 to 52 of the 70-storey tower, by architect Renzo Piano. A dedicated groundfloor entrance will take guests up to a double-height lobby, from which they will access rooms. The deluxe guestrooms will be among the largest in London, claims Shangri-La, with average floorspaces of 42m2. Five suites, two speciality suites and a presidential suite will have glass-enclosed ’winter garden’ balconies.

Once open in 2012, this will be the Asia Pacific-based hotel group’s first UK presence.
