You’ll also find six dining venues headlined by the alfresco rooftop bar 490 metres above sea level which will serve Asian-style tapas and contemporary cocktails.Other features of the hotel will include the ESPA (comprising 860sqm of treatment rooms and relaxation areas), a fully equipped fitness centre and an indoor pool on the 118th floor.



Occupying the top 16 floors of the ICC tower in Hong Kong is a truly unique location for a hotel, offering panoramic views across Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island. Modern in design, the hotel will be the heart and soul of Hong Kong and will attract visitors from all over the world for its world-class style, design, service and its landmark location.



The hotel is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2011
Ewww. Someone please bring back the old-world charm of the earlier Ritz Carlton. And Toscana...Toscana
