Whereas The Peninsula, across the street, is the grand old dame of Hong Kong's hotels, the InterContinental is like its youthful, contemporary cousin. It exudes a relaxed, informal atmosphere despite its stylish digs, with almost half its guests hailing from North America. It also boasts what may well be the best views of Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island from Tsim Sha Tsui. In fact, you can't get much closer to the water than this: Built in 1980 of polished rose granite and rising 17 stories, the hotel is located right on the water's edge. Its unfussy lobby, with a soaring glass facade and unobstructed views of harbor activity, is one of Hong Kong's best venues for afternoon tea or evening cocktails. Great views are also trademarks of its guest rooms, 70% of which command sweeping vistas of the harbor with floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall windows (the remaining -- and less expensive but larger -- rooms face the outdoor swimming pool and landscaped sun terrace). In-room standouts include an air purification system and huge walk-in closets adjoining the bathrooms (you can shower and get dressed without disturbing another guest in the room). Other notable hotel features are its high-rated restaurants; a health-conscious menu available from room service or at Harbourside; a state-of-the-art spa renowned for its outdoor cabanas and jet-lag, anti-cellulite, and Oriental healing treatments; harbor views from outdoor whirlpools and the pool's sun terrace; free tai chi and yoga classes for hotel guests; and Wi-Fi that enables guests to access the Internet even from poolside.
Facilities: 5 restaurants, including Spoon by Alain Ducasse, Yan Toh Heen, Nobu, and STEAK HOUSE winebar + grill; lounge; bar; outdoor pool w/underwater music; Jacuzzis overlooking Victoria Harbour; fitness room (24 hr.); spa; concierge; business center; upscale shopping arcade; 24-hr. room service; babysitting; house doctor.

Fantastic location – convenient to shopping and fabulous view of the harbor
I'd rate this hotel a 4+. I booked a room with a king bed and full (deluxe) view of the harbor. It was worth every penny - the view was amazing! The room size was quite large,...
