We stopped at the Intercontinental Hong Kong having gone to the trouble to book a harbourside room with a deck. We were on our way home from my wife's retirement gift to us after 5 weeks in Italy. Although the early check in failed to work and we were consigned to the 17th floor (rooms with butler) after a couple hours sleep in the emergency room our 3rd floor room was teady was ready. It was magnificent in the extreme. At US$600 a night so it should be but with spa,sauna, massive bathroom, a beautiful bed, electric drapes and the moving panaorama of this amazing harbour really tangible beause of the deck and proximity to the harbour our stay was enhanced. This hotel presents everything taken by mouth in style. The Steakhouse is the best (look on line) and you have to book. We did, and had a special table in a darkened and private corner. The menu is backlit so its easy to order. Then the list of special things they do rolls out - special butters (3) / salt (7) mustards (12?) steak knives (7?) - amazing how well presented it all is. The salad bar and massive wine list all compliment the meal. Ambience and feel round it all out. All this costs. Breakfasts are a joy either in room or at the buffet restaurant which presents the most amazing a la carte and set price assortments at all meal times. Again you have to book because all the restaurants in this hotel are all high profile. The night time seafood buffet (no oysters) is extreme and so is the endless Peking Duck. Again better to book. The lounge also serve light meals and to be there on dusk enjoying a cocktail or three is unique. The other in house specialty restaurants include Spoon and Nobu. Nobu is Nobu. Have been to Spoon a number of times and it is just not our cup of tea - seems very old fashioned. Don't like. This property like many other premium hotels in Hong Kong has seamless service and presentation. Creme de la creme in our opinion.
