The world's tallest hotel will open in Hong Kong in 2010 when the Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, welcomes its first guests.
The 312-bedroom hotel will occupy floors 102 to 118 on the International Commerce Centre (ICC) in Kowloon. With interiors by Singapore's LTW, all rooms will provide spectacular city and harbour views.
The hotel's six dining outlets will include Chinese and Italian restaurants, and an alfresco rooftop bar - at 490 metres above sea level - serving Asian-style tapas. As well as an ESPA spa on the 116th floor, the hotel will also boast one of the largest ballrooms, measuring 930sqm, in the city.
