Langham Place Hotel, Hong Kong $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
The Langham made quite a stir in 2004, when it opened in the middle of the once-seedy Mongkok district; the ultramodern glass complex, which includes a swanky, 600,000-square-foot shopping mall, jump-started the gentrification of the entire neighborhood. It set the bar high, too, with an outdoor rooftop pool, four restaurants, and the opulent Chuan Spa. The hotel also boasts one of the best contemporary Chinese art collections in the whole city: Paintings and drawings decorate not only the common areas but also the 665 luxurious rooms, where the low-key, streamlined furnishings and flat-screen TVs complement rather than detract from the art. Getting a good night's sleep is taken very seriously herein addition to cushy beds with the requisite silky, high-thread-count sheets, there's an over-the-top pillow menu that lets guests choose between different shapes, fillings, and even fragrances (for example, rose, lavender, or Japanese tea). The bathrooms are all chrome and marble, with only glass walls dividing them from the bedroom area (there are retractable screens for the modest). If you feel like a lazy night in, you can choose from the hotel's huge DVD lending library; for something livelier, the on-site Backyard restaurant hosts weekend-night alfresco barbecues under fairy-lit mango trees.
