Hong Kong Island's tallest hotel (measured from sea level) offers the ultimate in extravagance and luxury, rivaling the grand hotels in Paris or London: It's one of my favorite hotels in the world. More than 700 Viennese chandeliers, lush Tai Ping carpets, artistic flower arrangements, and more than 500 paintings and artworks adorn the hotel. A 17-story atrium, which stretches from the 39th to the 56th floors, features a marvelous 16-story-high Chinese painting, drawn by 40 artists from Beijing and believed to be the largest landscape painting in the world. Also in the atrium are a private lounge open only to hotel guests and a two-story old-world-style library. The hotel itself is enhanced by the connecting Pacific Place with its many options in dining; across the street is Hong Kong Park. Rooms, all of which ring the atrium and measure 41 sq. m (441 sq. ft.) or more, face either the Peak or spectacular Victoria Harbour. Oversize bathrooms are equipped with two sinks and separate tub and shower areas (harbor-view rooms only), bidet, LCD TVs, and even jewelry boxes. Fresh flowers are another nice touch. Guests paying rack rates receive such additional services as free transportation from and to the airport, free laundry service and dry cleaning throughout their stay, complimentary American or continental breakfast, free local telephone calls and Internet access, and 6pm late checkout.
Facilities: 6 restaurants, including Petrus and café TOO; lounge; outdoor heated pool big enough for swimming laps; health club (24 hr.); spa; concierge; business center; adjoining shopping arcade; 24-hr. room service; babysitting; executive-level rooms; medical clinic; free shuttle to Queen's Pier in Central and Convention Centre.

Didn't stay there but the Waterside Terrace was excellent
This restaurant by the pool was excellent. The cheeseburgers were delicious and so-o-o North American. The Tom Yum Goong soup ( a taste acquired over three weeks of travel in the region)...
