Born as the Regent Hotel, the InterContinental was rechristened in 2001 and injected with $40 million in refurbishments. Since then, Kate Moss and John Travolta have stayed over, and Alain Ducasse's Spoon moved in (it was joined by the world's 14th Nobu outpost in December 2006). Anyone willing to drop $11,000 on a night's stay should book the palatial Presidential Suite with its private infinity pool and gym. For the rest of us, the 495 expansive rooms with their black-and-gold furnishings, Wi-Fi, iPod docking stations, and awesome city views are plenty good enough. There's also a sizable spa, an indulgent outdoor swimming pool, and Kowloon's top designer shops in walking distance.

"There are some hotels every traveler aspires to experience, and this is one of them." Built on stilts over Victoria Harbour, the 17-story tower has "an unbeatable view of the Hong Kong skyline." Blending contemporary design with Asian accents, "rooms are state of the art," and come with 24-hour butler service. Restaurants include outposts of Nobu and Spoon by Alain Ducasse.
