A Tour of London's Highest Luxury Hotel Suite

If you want jetliner views of London, there's really only one hotel option. The luxurious Shangri-La Hotel, At The Shard, London takes up the 34th-52nd floors of Europe's tallest building. With the right city view room or suite, you get an amazing perspective on London's greatest landmarks, from the Palace of Westminster, all the way down the Thames to Canary Wharf.

If you want the best suite at the Shangri-La London, you need to reserve the mind-blowing Shangri-La Suite. Like a luxurious mansion in the sky, the $18,000 per night suite provides just shy of 2,500 square feet of luxury. And that luxury is encased in floor-to-ceiling walls of glass with virtually nothing obstructing your views of the city and the English countryside beyond.

Those floor-to-ceiling windows provide unparalleled 180-degree views of the city, spanning from Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the City of London, the Tower of London and Tower Bridge to the meandering River Thames along Canary Wharf.

This jewel in the crown of Shangri-La Hotel, At The Shard, London is an exquisitely appointed one-bedroom suite with en-suite bathroom and dressing room, separate living room with dining area, office space, guest washroom and kitchenette.

Features in the Shangri-La Suite include the Shangri-La Bed; 1,000-thread count cotton Frette linen, a full-size executive writing desk and climate control to complement the building’s integrated sun-shielding. The marble-clad bathroom features heated floors; jacuzzi bath; Acqua Di Parma amenities; plush bathrobes; flat-screen television; a separate, glass-enclosed shower; and a washlet toilet. It feels more like a very luxurious apartment than a hotel suite.
