With more skyscrapers than any other city in the world, Hong Kong isn't short on great views. So naturally, its elite hotels need to be something special to stand out from the crowd – and often that means standing above it, too.

When you stay at a 5-star hotel in Hong Kong Island or Kowloon, there are a few things you can be sure of: views to take your breath away, exemplary service and prime locations offering instant access to the city's essential tourist sites and most highly regarded restaurants.
