The Four Seasons is on the Hong Kong Island waterfront overlooking Victoria Harbour and the financial district. The hotel adds considerably to the luxury and excellence in a city renowned for exceptional accommodations. As part of the prestigious International Finance Centre, it offers unrivalled links to Hong Kong Station, with the famed Star Ferry steps away.It is difficult for me to say just how good the hotel is but the hotel likes to quote Prestige Magazine which concluded, "Opened in 2005, the Four Seasons set out to raise the bar – and it certainly succeeded. The establishment is the epitome of high-end luxury, evident down to the smallest of details." Its 399 guest room...Read More

It seems only yesterday but about 15 years ago I walked through the shell of this building wearing a hardhat.

This is not quite in the same category as most of the other hotels in this journal but it is a superior first-class hotel in a unique location.For anyone attending a conference or exhibition in Hong Kong, this hotel is excellently placed. It is next to the Wanchai Star Ferry terminal and you can walk to the Wanchai mass transit railway station along areal walkways. Wanchai is not a well-known shopping area although there are some local facilities but Central and Cause...Read More

While the Peninsula represents the traditional luxury, the Intercontinental is modern luxury. I had the pleasure of staying here some years ago when the hotel first opened as was branded as the Regent. It was outstanding and totally blew me away and the hotel has maintained that tradition ever since. Recent innovations have brought an even more dramatic edge to this acclaimed hotel. The absolute waterfront location is just wonderful and the architects have taken full advantage of it in spectacular fashion.Rooms at the Intercontinental are modern and luxurious. The majority of the guest rooms and all of the suites have mesmerizing views of the dramatic Hong Kong Island skyline and bustling...Read More
