From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
This refined sanctuary trumps the city's gilded competition: Indo-Portuguese furniture and original Chinese paintings plus two grand staircases in the lobby evoke the European mansions of old Macau, while the efficient English-speaking staff are among Macau's best. The 360 stately rooms have Chinese silks as well as special touches such as evening turndown service that includes a bite-size Portuguese egg tart, Macanese almond cookies, and serradura, an even creamier take on tiramisu. In case the hotel's intimate Plaza Casino, five pools, and poolside cabanas with TVs aren't diversion enough, guests also have round-the-clock access to the behemoth Venetian via a three-story shopping arcade filled with top brands.—2009 Hot List

When to go: Avoid weekends and Chinese New Year, when ferries are jam-packed.

Which room to book: Suites with balconies add romance.
