After $140 million in renovations, Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong, reopened in September 2006 and immediately regained its perch as Hong Kong's grande dame. High-tech amenities like iPod docking stations and sound systems have been added to the 502 rooms and suites, and all of them are larger now that the balconies have been eliminated (the grand Victoria Harbour views are still there, through the giant new windows). The decor throughout is sumptuous, with earth-toned brocade fabrics and carved wood furniture offset by statuary, orchids, and bonsai plants. The bathrooms are dramatic, with dark marble counters and floors; some have freestanding tubs where you can soak up to your chin. The hotel's nine restaurants and bars include Pierre, the new French eatery of three-star Michelin chef Pierre Gagnaire. There's also a colonnaded lap pool, a beauty salon, a spa with a Chinese herbal steam room, and—for undoing all your slimming treatments—a sumptuous cake shop.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
This Central district landmark near the Star Ferry has rooms with sleek interiors and "every amenity imaginable—they even provided me with a yoga mat." The Mandarin Suite has a framed Qing dynasty court robe. Visit Pierre on the twenty-fifth floor for Pierre Gagnaire's modern French cuisine and Victoria Harbour vistas. Chinese and Ayurvedic treatments are available at the spa.
