I visit this hotel almost every time I come to HK. It's beautiful, classy, and just a joy to be at. I've been here for afternoon tea, a large birthday dinner, drinks at the bar, etc and service has always been top notch.Recommended for:

My mom used to take me for afternoon tea in The Peninsula Lobby when I was little, and it still holds a special place in my heart. For both kids and adults, the Lobby allows you to go back in time with its regale decor and old-fashioned service. Cucumber sandwiches, tarts, scones, crumpets and anything else that screams "I should be in 17th Century England right now" is served on tiered silver platters. There is a huge variety of tea to choose from, although I was never much of a tea drinker at age 7. Instead, I went for their bitter hot chocolate - and probably still would.Recommended for:

Get your girlfriends together and have afternoon tea at the Peninsula, located in TST, one of Kowloon's busiest tourist districts. The Peninsula is a gorgeous hotel, and their afternoon tea is one of the best ones around. It comes out to around $40 USD a person, but trust me, those little cakes and scones and the unlimited tea will definitely keep you satisfied.Recommended for:

Impeccable service, lovely rooms, and fantastic views. I though tea here was a bit more pomp than quality but the Peninsula is well-deserving of its position as one of the top hotels on the planet.Recommended for:

Superb. Was met on the airbridge from my arriving flight by hotel staff and spirited through immigration and customs into one of the hotel's Rolls Royce cars. From arrival to being in our suite couldn't have taken more than 40 minutes. As for the stay itself, everything from the suite through to service provided throughout were uniformly superb. Nothing was any trouble for the management and staff at this well-oiled machine.Recommended for:

If you want to go fancy and high class, than The Peninsula is for you. This grand hotel is located right in the heart of the Kowloon side. The only drawback is that it's not located right on the harbour so the rooms don't have a unobstructed harbour view. They're famous for their high tea, which is lovely. Get there at least 30 minutes before it starts as a line will form early.Recommended for:

James Bond stayed here...as did many dignitaries, royalties, and regular folks. What's so special about this hotel is the colonial grandeur that it exudes even today, in Chinese-ruled modern Hong Kong. Rooms are plushy arranged, views from the rooms are incredible (in the Tower, on the harbor side). Everyone will say don't miss the tea set in the lobby lounge. Sure. I will also say in addition, don't miss the happy hour at Felix at the top of the Pen Tower. The Felix restrooms are not to be missed, trust me, they've got the best views there!

I'd also recommend the Peninsula. Make sure you get a harbor view room, and you'll have an absolutely amazing view of the Hong Kong skyline (ridiculously gorgeous at night). At first I was concerned that the Peninsula is in Kowloon, but it's very easy to hop on a ferry (I think it took about 10 min if I remember) to the HK side or taxi over the bridge....plus, Kowloon has plenty to do in its own right and its kind of nice to get out of the busiest parts of HK to sleep at night.
Aside from the rooms, amazing views and impeccable service, three other things were top-notch about the Peninsula....1) The Spa. One of the best spa experiences I've had 2) The hotel restaurants. We took a private dim sum making class at Spring Moon which was such a cool experience. 3) A helicopter tour of the harbor and surrounding areas (like the Buddha)...but what makes this particularl helicopter tour cool is that you leave from the helipad on top of the hotel. Very, very James Bond, and an absolute must for Hong Kong.

I love the Peninsula Hotel! Everything is wonderful but nothing as refreshing as relieving one's self in the sculptured urinals in the Men's Room on the upper floor while looking out a floor to ceiling window at Hong Kong across the bay. Even if one doesn't stay there it's worth the ferry ride across the bay to have a drink and check out the men's room!!

We arrived at the Peninsula after several weeks in Mongolia, and it was a fantastic place to rest and recuperate. One of my children was ill from Mongolia, and they had a doctor on staff see him within 10 minutes of arriving. I highly recommend getting a view, because it is one of the great city views in the world. The prices for dining there are high, and there is great food outside the hotel - the lines for high tea are considerable.Recommended for:

The Peninsula Hotel is a sight in kowloon; Not only does it stick out because of its old design, but the array of bentleys and super cars pulling up to it also turns a few heads. The restaurant at the top is called Felix restaurant. Really a treat but plan on spending upwards of 150 USD a person on dinner.

If you've got the money and you're in Hong Kong ... you'll need to stay at the Peninsula at least once. Even if you're not staying there, you need to check it out.
The Peninsula is a landmark on in Hong Kong. Supposedly the royal family used to stay here back when the British ruled Hong Kong. There are secret passage ways and corridors made for the British Secret Service so they could make a fast get away if needed ... very James Bondish.
You'll find a lot of people "queueing up" during the mid-afternoon for the famous High Tea. It's a bit expensive but well worth the experience.
The nicest perk about staying at the Peninsula is the car service. They have the largest fleet of Rolls Royces in the world. They'll pick you up from the airport and drive you anywhere / pick you up from anywhere at any almost any time.
The Peninsula is Luxury ... all the way down (e.g. to infinite and beyond for you non-geeky types).Recommended for:
