Hong Kong's tallest hotel (56 floors) dwarfs the extravagant shopping centers and office towers of Central. The harbor views are, naturally, impressive here—you can even see the Shangri-La's sister hotel across the water in Kowloon. Many of the 565 rooms have big windows that make the most of the vistas; all have flat-screen TVs, dark wood Chinese-style cabinets, and pale silk bedding. The proximity to major banks and law offices, along with lobby Wi-Fi and in-room fax machines, attracts suit-and-tie types, but shopaholics are happy here, too: Pacific Place, one of Hong Kong's ritziest malls, is just an escalator ride away. One rather surprising plus: Even though the property seems like a monument to glittering convenience, eco-friendly policies like recycling and using "green" cleaning products are employed here.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
This elliptical glass tower sits atop the Pacific Place mall. At check-in, guests staying on Horizon Club floors are individually greeted, escorted to their room, and welcomed with Chinese tea—"it's a memorable personal touch." Rooms with Austrian crystal chandeliers also have marble bathrooms with TVs. The hotel's four wine cellars have more than 12,000 bottles; at Petrus, the focus is French.
