Best for Romance - Expert review of InterContinental Hong Kong

Dramatic harbour views and the city’s best rooftop spa.

If you're planning on spending a fair amount of time in your hotel, the stylish InterCon is the place to be. With easily the best harbour views in town it’s worth checking in just to wallow in its legendary trio of rooftop spas. I never leave town without a Nine Dragon cocktail and a fix of that view.

Location: 

Smack on the Kowloon side of the harbour – a claim fewer and fewer ‘waterfront’ hotels can make.

Bedrooms: 

Two thirds of the rooms have harbour views: get one. Lower category rooms are on the small side but all include 24-hour butler service and whiz-bang LCD TV and BOSE entertainment systems, iPod docking stations and free WiFi. The Bond-esque Presidential Suite is the largest in town.

Public areas: 

Smart, bright and, for a chain, surprisingly hip. The pièce-de-résistance is the Lobby Lounge where three-storey glass-curtained windows afford gob-smacking views of one of the greatest twilight shows on Earth. Toast it with a Nine Dragon cocktail.

Eating and drinking: 

Worth staying in for. Yan Toh Heen has garnered a Michelin star and it’s high drama all the way at Nobu and Alain Ducasse’s Spoon – where I dined underneath 550 dangling Murano-blown spoons. Try Nobu’s small sushi bar with its nine non-bookable stools or retreat with sake martinis to the sexy lounge bar. Clad in 7,700 black river rocks, its undulating ceiling shimmers with sea urchin spines.

Leisure facilities: 

The Pool Terrace with its large outdoor pool and three infinity spa pools overlooking the harbour lends this city centre hotel an enviable ‘urban resort’ ambience. The feng shui inspired I-Spa is also here, and there are shops on the lower ground.

Service: 

One of the hotel’s USPs is local knowledge and an insider concierge service. Clefs d’Or concierge Louis Baleros can shoehorn guests into most restaurants and private clubs and I’ve used him for pre-arrival tips many times.

Who stays there: 

Manolo Blahnik-heeled leisure travellers, international fashion designers, entertainers, heads of state, CEOs and corporate fashion and entertainment types.

Price advice: 

While obviously more expensive, a harbour-view room is non-stop excitement; the passing cruise liners and other craft seem close enough to touch.

Pros: 
Location, location, location
Cons: 
With almost 600 rooms, it’s not intimate
