Modern fitness center with unobstructed views of Hong Kong Island and the harbor
Hotel gets a lot of event traffic (including weddings), so it's usually quite busy
Stuffy dress code enforced throughout hotel, including no-flip-flops rule (a pro for some)
Mediocre breakfast buffet is disappointing to many guests
Some guests say it lacks the personality of other luxury hotels, like the Mandarin Oriental
The 300-room Peninsula Hong Kong is the city's oldest hotel; built in 1926, it evokes the elegance of the '20s but the modern sophistication of the 21st century. The grand lobby features high, gilded ceilings and stately pillars, and hosts the hotel's popular afternoon High Tea. The European-style rooms are classic and tasteful, if a bit stuffy to some, and marble bathrooms have separate showers and soaking tubs. The amenities are, as expected from such a high-caliber hotel, top-notch: six gourmet dining options, an indoor pool, a full-service spa with stellar city views, and a modern fitness center, also with stunning views. Many people (who can afford it) stay here for the bragging rights alone -- after all, some of the hotel's guests are flown in by private helicopter. The vibe is very upscale, and there's even a dress code that's enforced throughout the hotel (no flip-flops allowed!). The location in the touristy Tsim Sha Tsui neighborhood, near designer shopping and Victoria Harbour, is very convenient.
In the premier Tsim Sha Tsui neighborhood, surrounded shopping, dining, museums, and public transportation
The Peninsula is located in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, a popular tourist area on the Kowloon Peninsula with high-end shopping and entertainment. It's near to transport systems and within walking distance of harbor and its ferry service.
Trekking through Hong Kong is truly a feast for the senses. Much like Times Square and the blinking neon lights of the Las Vegas Strip, Hong Kong could at first be a sensory overload, but areas outside the statuesque skyscrapers showcase the true charm and beauty of the city.
After exploring the city's tightly packed streets and navigating the ever-present stream of traffic, one great place to escape is The Peak, Hong Kong's most popular attraction. Visitors arrive at The Peak via the Peak Tram, which rises 1,300 feat above sea level to provide outrageous views of the city. Once at the top, The Peak Tower offers shopping and dining, and The Sky Gallery displays artwork by local Hong Kong artists.
Another way to take in the sights of Hong Kong is to ride the Star Ferry across Victoria Harbour, one of the world's busiest harbors. It's an essential part of local commuter life, but also an important aspect of the city's tourism. Once at Victoria Harbour's waterfront, visitors can seek the Avenue of the Stars -- Hong Kong's version of Hollywood's Walk of Fame. Avenue of the Stars is accompanied by the Symphony of the Stars, a sound and light show that pays tribute to the city's film industry. Experience thrill rides at Ocean Park Theme Park, or get lost in the magic at Hong Kong Disneyland, which incorporates the different lands of Disney World's Magic Kingdom. Should shopping or sightseeing become tiresome, Hong Kong has several beaches for quiet relaxation outside the city.
