The Luxe Manor could have come out of the mind of Salvador Dali. The design of this eclectic boutique hotel is surreal, if a bit busy and over-the-top.
The lobby is decorated in bold colours, there's a lip-shaped sofa in the bar, and the ornate rooms have details such as animal-print carpets, surreal asymmetrical furniture, and whimsical prints decorating the walls and pillows. This is a one-of-a-kind hotel in a great location in the downtown commercial area.
Rooms starting at $280
As expected for the W hotel chain, the W Hong Kong is sleek, trendy, and modern, with funky decor, bright-coloured lighting, and buzzy pop art, but this W feels a bit more luxurious than some of its counterparts.
The Bliss spa is gorgeous with teak tubs and soft lighting, the stunning rooftop infinity pool on the 76th floor offers dizzying views, and the guest rooms sport high-tech amenities and slate bathrooms. It's not traditional or subdued, but it's still luxurious in its own right.
Rooms starting at $510
With a great location in Central, the city's business hub, the gorgeous Landmark hotel is one of the more intimate luxury options in Hong Kong, with only 113 rooms. The design of this boutique property features warm brown and silver tones and Asian-inspired accents (typical of the luxe Mandarin Oriental brand).
The gorgeous spa features luxe treatment rooms, a Turkish Hammam, a pool, and a spa cafe, while the guest rooms are spacious and high-tech, featuring marble bathrooms with deep soaking tubs, iPod docks, at least three flat-screen TVs, and Wi-Fi.
Rooms starting at $500
Arguably the most luxurious hotel in Hong Kong, the Island Shangri-La features opulent details, like the largest Chinese silk painting in the world, and luxe amenities, like an outdoor pool and high-end spa.
Rooms are elegant and outfitted with silk throws, gilded wooden furniture, crystal chandeliers, and high-tech features such as large flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. Opt for a harbor view room--the views are spectacular.
Rooms starting at $530
The Ritz-Carlton embodies luxury. Large rooms feature decadent touches, such as plush beds with 400- to 600-thread count linens, iPods and iPod docks, Nespresso coffeemakers, and high-end toiletries.

Rooms starting at $530
This historic hotel--the city's oldest--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 with marble bathrooms. The amenities are, as expected from such a high-calibre hotel, top-notch: six gourmet dining options, an indoor pool, a full-service spa with stellar city views, and a modern fitness centre, also with stunning views. The vibe is very upscale and the guests are elite.
Rooms starting at $260
Hotel LKF is a luxury boutique hotel in Lan Kwai Fong, a lively area of Hong Kong that's bustling with bars, nightclubs, restaurants, and shops.
The decor is modern and edgy, and the rooms are stylish and spacious, with flat-screen TVs, DVD players, large comfy beds, bright-coloured espresso machines, and large modern bathrooms with great soaking tubs. The views from the roof (where breakfast takes place) are amazing.
