The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong officially became the world’s tallest hotel – and the fourth highest building in the world – when it opened its doors to the public in 2011.

Herve Humler, president of luxury hotel chain said the building was a landmark hotel which was the culmination of many years of hard work ‘We have been able to create truly spectacular so we can welcome our guests not just to the tallest hotel in the world, but also to one of the very best hotels in the world,’ he said. ‘We are taking luxury to new heights in every sense.’

Special Features:

It has taken years to build the hotel which also has a shopping mall. Other hotel’s facilities include state-of-the-art technology including WiFi, iPod docking stations, Blu-ray DVD players and flat screen TVs. There are three restaurants on the 102nd floor, including Tin Lung Heen, which is a Chinese restaurant serving refined Cantonese cuisine; Tosca, an Italian restaurant which offers Southern Italian cuisine and the very stylish The Lounge & Bar with fire pits and open kitchens.

In addition, there is a chocolate-themed lounge named The Chocolate Library on 103rd floor and a stylish patisserie located on 9th floor. Managers say the jewel in the crown is Ozone, located on the hotel’s 118th floor.
