From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:This 393-room high-rise is like a fun-loving younger sister to Kowloon grandes dames the InterContinental and The Peninsula. It's home to the city's highest swimming pool (at least until the Ritz-Carlton opens across the street), and the sunset views from the seventy-sixth-floor Jacuzzi and from Asia's first Bliss Spa are something to write home about. The decor topsy-turvy bookcases, ticking clocks, and modern woodland motifscreate an energetic and surrealist atmosphere. Cleverly designed rooms make the best use of the space, and room service adds whimsical touches: A delightful toy replica of a Hong Kong double-decker bus comes with your order. When you feel the need to venture out of your rabbit hole, the Living Room lounge is a hot nightspot, while the Kitchen restaurant pulls out all the stops for Sunday brunch, including a chocolate fountain. 2009 Hot List
When to go: October through December, when it's sunny and mild.
Which room to book: The Cool Corner room, with a bathroom overlooking the harbor, is worth the splurge.Subscribe now to Condé Nast Traveler for just $1 an issue! ›
