We stayed in the new Ritz Carlton in Aug'11 for just one night (sadly not more) and were 100% satisfied with our experience. The hotel is located on the 103rd - 118th floor and the views over Hong Kong are fantastic!! We usually stay at the W Hotel but this time we wanted to try something new, so we chose the RC because it also has direct access to the Elements mall and the airport train at Kowloon station.
We stayed in a Club Room with island / harbor view, and although the room was a bit small it was enough for one night. Next time we might choose the Junior Suite. The view from the room is stunning and it is well worth paying a bit more to get the Hong Kong island view!!
The Club Lounge is located on the 116th floor with stunning views. They serve breakfast, snacks and drinks all day, afternoon tea, evening canapes, late night dessert and all night snacks. The lounge is open 24h/day. There could be more staff at the lounge though, as now they were almost nonexistent and service quite slow. But the breakfast and evening canapes were both very good.
We arrived early in the evening and had dinner at the hotel's Italian restaurant located on the 101st floor (also with stunning Hong Kong skyline views). The food and service was very good!
The hotel interior design and public spaces are among the most beautiful, sophisticated and modern we have seen ever. The amount of details and decorations is amazing. Nothing has been left for chance, and every small detail has been thought through and has been put there for a reason. It is really a state-of-the-art design hotel, not at all like the usual Ritz Carlton hotels. The innovative style, impeccable taste and in-depth understanding of art, fashion, trends are impressive. If you are into hotel and interior design, this is definitely a place to visit!
We will for sure go back the next time we are in Hong Kong!
