Joined onto the mall of the same name (there’s a very discreet back entrance on the second floor) in the heart of Central, right above the MTR.
Just over 100 rooms and suites keep The Landmark at boutique level. Congratulations to designers Adam Tihany and local boy Peter Remedios who put everything, from its huge bathtubs and slick technology to fairly neutral palette, together with the guest in mind.
The lobby has elements of an old style club (roomy armchairs and books to read) while at the same time rejoices in a contemporary design.
Eating and drinking
One restaurant (Amber), one bar (MO). Both superb. Amber for its contemporary French cuisine which some might venture to say deserves more than its current two Michelin stars; MO serves food all day but comes into its own at night. Watch out for the MOtinis!
The (really gorgeous) spa spreads over two entire floors; there’s also an indoor pool (18 metres) and fitness centre plus yoga/Pilates studio.
They’ll even summon sales staff from Harvey Nichols with an armful of goodies that you might just want to purchase. Gosh.
Who stays there
Rather popular with Chinese film and media stars, and visiting execs from all over the world. Children may be happier elsewhere.
The Landmark has been known to offer four nights’ accommodation for the price of three.
