Hong Kong HotelsStay in some of Hong Kong's famous hotels, now offering great deals. Even if you don't stay, they're well worth an afternoon visit. High tea at the Peninsula dates back to the heyday of British rule in the 1920s, and the 28th-floor bar, restaurant and, yes, even the bathrooms all have stellar views. The once-staid Mandarin Oriental just reopened after a $140 million renovation; rooms feature design so cutting edge it can take half an hour just to figure out the light switches. And the sumptuous Island Shangri-La is perhaps Hong Kong's most distinctively luxurious hotel, with generously sized rooms, an over-the-top spa and a truly spectacular outdoor swimming pool, encircled by skyscrapers.
