Uber-luxury hotel with grand common areas; popular with tourists and business travelers alike
From the outside, the five-pearl Langham Hotel, Hong Kong, looks decidedly modern, with 16 floors of glass windows in an area dominated by similarly modern buildings. Inside, the decor is considerably more classic, featuring an elegant lobby complete with polished marble floors and crystal chandeliers hanging from borderline Rococo-inspired ceilings. The sophistication continues throughout the common areas, with a mix of gold- and mahogany-hued trim around the elevators and a heavy use of gold on the walls, ceilings, and other details found throughout the hotel's restaurants. The hotel attracts a mix of business and leisure travelers, and plenty of non-resident guests drop by throughout the day and evening to attend events or dine at the T'Ang Court, one of the few Cantonese restaurants that's earned three Michelin stars.
