Every room offers a view of the city with floor to ceiling windows and each room is completely unique. The décor compliments the city surroundings effortlessly by mixing silk, marble, and wooden accents. Guests at Shangri-La are just a few steps from Musicals London where live theatre performance can be enjoyed. The Borough Market is less than a quarter mile from the hotel and is a great place to eat delicious food and enjoy the vibe of London. Professional events can be quite memorable if they take place at Shangri-La. The three meeting spaces are named after the first three constant virtues of Confucianism because of the stunning views and conceptually unique offering of these functional areas. The services offered by the hotel help to maximize professional gatherings. Furthermore, guests are walking distance from the Pearson Professional Centers. Shangri-La is a unique and visionary hotel that offers its guests a unique perspective of London.
