This luxury hotel lives up to the Shangri-La brand's stellar reputation, but there are a few small details that prevent it from being a true five-pearl property. Beautiful rooms have elegant furnishings, wood accents, and floor-to-ceiling windows, most with sweeping views of Victoria Harbor or the skyline. But lower category room bathrooms, though clad in marble, feature hotel-brand toiletries, and a few don’t have tubs. There are several fine dining options, as well as a more casual tapas bar and a lobby lounge with bar service, but the highlight here is the Shang Palace, a wonderful Cantonese restaurant boasting two Michelin stars and outstanding service (which reopened in September 2012 after a renovation). The fitness center, small indoor pool, and classy business center make it a great pick for business travelers, but its central location in Tsim Sha Tsui, near major attractions and the MTR, make it an ideal option for tourists, too.
