Hong Kong houses an impressive skyline of towering skyscrapers, but there's one grand gem that looks over it all – the International Commerce Centre (ICC). Standing tall and mighty among the clouds of Hong Kong's heavens, The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong is a shining landmark housed within the city's tallest high-rise that has earned its height recognition among the top in the world. The luxury hotel is a household name, an opulent dame celebrated for its five-star hospitality, Michelin-starred eateries and, well, the unbeatable panoramic views. To say that The Ritz-Carlton is a top-tier experience would be an understatement – the hotel truly goes above and beyond, in a literal and figurative sense. With high hopes to match our profound expectations, we checked into the Ritz to experience Hong Kong from above.
Arrive in style at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong by cabbing to the impressive entrance which welcomes with friendly staff. Guests can also take public transportation by train to Kowloon MTR station, which interlinks the hotel with Elements shopping mall. Check in is no underwhelming feat – you must take the lift from the bottom 9th floor lobby up to the 103rd floor reception, a quick minutes' trip.
