You earn Marriott Rewards points every time you stay at a hotel of the Mariott Group, including Ritz-Carlton properties.

PROS & THINGS I LIKE This is the highest hotel in the world, and the setting is spectacular beyond words. The hotel is located on floors 102 to 118 of the International Commerce Centre (ICC), with 484 m or 1588 ft the 7th tallest building in the world and the highest skyscraper in Hong Kong.

In fact, IMHO, you won’t see as astonishing a vista as this anywhere else in Hong Kong. The hotel has two opulently decorated lobbies: a somewhat smaller lobby on the ground level and the main lobby (where check-in is done) on the 103rd floor. Four elevators shuttle guests in a record time between the two lobbies, so you never have to wait too long to enter or leave the hotel. Inside the plush hotel, a cutting-edge décor with soaring architectural … [Read more...] about Review: The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong, the world’s highest hotel
