Hotels in Hong Kong
Many hotels in Hong Kong offer standout service and amenities. Case in point: The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, located on floors 102-118 of a skyscraper located close to the airport. Meanwhile, the Peninsula, in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui with views of the harbor, is not only one of the best hotels in Hong Kong, but also in the world. Expect impeccable service, gorgeous silk-wrapped rooms, and an ESPA Spa. Another fantastic option is the Langham Hong Kong. It's especially well suited for those who love to shop, located as it is near big designer stores such as Fendi and Louis Vuitton, and the Langham Place Shopping Mall. Rooms feature iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, and more—not uncommon details for Hong Kong hotels. If you're traveling a bit more budget conscious, look no further than the Luxe Manor Hotel, set in the downtown commercial area, close to solid shopping and dining options; rooms start at $150 a night. For this kind of value, you should also consider properties located in the neighborhoods surrounding the Central District.
