Although its sister property, the original Mandarin Oriental, has now reopened (with much hullabaloo), the Landmark is no slouch, either. Although some of the 113 spacious rooms and suites have unsexy office-tower views, all have oversized plasma televisions, yoga mats, and beautiful Asian-style minimalist furnishings (sliding wood doors, low tables, lots of dark wood, and perfectly placed floral arrangements). The bathrooms are marble, and those in the 600 room series have enormous freestanding circular tubs. The hotel's showy public spaces—like the Amber restaurant, with its cascading metallic ceiling sculptures, and the dramatically chic split-level MO Bar—have even better feng shui. The 21,000-square-foot Oriental Spa features his-and-hers hammams, detoxifying amethyst-crystal steam rooms, and underwater day beds in steamy stone hot tubs.

"Once you get to the room, the wow factor begins" at this Central district hotel—whose designers include Adam Tihany—connected by skybridges to commercial buildings and shopping. Most rooms have three LCD TVs, and you can "watch Hong Kong life while bathing." MO Bar's breakfast buffet includes dim sum and American standards.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
This sibling to Hong Kong's original Mandarin (itself set to reopen this year following renovations) is all sleek lines and sexy curves. The 113 large rooms are categorized by their square footage—L450 (450 square feet) to L900 (900 square feet)—and have ultramodern bathrooms with generous limestone tubs. The trade-off for the hotel's central location in the business district is the potential lack of privacy from neighboring towers, but this same prime site has made MO Bar a buzzy spot with bespoke-suited bankers. Staff provide excellent service, on a par with the city's other legendary five-star hotels.—2006 Hot List
