With its prime location on Hong Kong Island overlooking passing ships in Victoria Harbour, this elegant grande dame offers guests easy access to everything the SAR has to offer. The 545 rooms and suites sport top-of-the-line amenities and views of either the waterfront or the hotel’s private garden. In a city where space is perpetually at a premium and outdoor exertions are all but impossible, the 24-hour fitness center with a 400-meter running track and a heated outdoor pool is a boon. In addition to a spa, the hotel has a range of dining options, including the Italian Grissini, the Cantonese One Harbour Road, and the Japanese Kaetsu. The favorite of Hong Kong’s power brokers and bankers is, of course, the Grand Hyatt Steakhouse, where prime cuts of beef are washed down with bold reds and dirty martinis.
