You're being a drama queen to be fair.

The bloke who originally asked you asked a simple enough question, to which you have blown up.

According to the Ritz Carlton Hong Kong webpage, the soon to open, world tallest hotel will have a rooftop swimming pool, well we all know that Ritz Carlton will occupy the top 15 floors of ICC, does it mean the rooftop of ICC will be owned by Ritz Carlton???

Quote:
Dive into a confluence of cultures where East meets West, modern architecture rules the skyline and shopping is a national sport. Enjoy it all to the fullest – and then, when you need a respite from the sea of humanity, escape back to The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong, Kowloon hotel, and surround yourself in blissfully impeccable service.

Soaring 1,574 feet into the Victoria Harbor skyline, The Ritz-Cartlon, Hong Kong, Kowloon is the world's tallest hotel and features:

* 300 luxuriously-appointed rooms and suites
* 360° panoramic views of Victoria Harbor
* Three fine dining restaurants
* Extensive meeting space
* Indoor / outdoor rooftop swimming pool
* World-class spa and fitness center

The indoor/outdoor thing means that they want to occupy the roof but not sure that they will be allowed.
