Hong Kong is now home to the tallest hotel in the world (via ET). The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, which opened today, has 118 floors and stands 1,600 feet tall with spectacular views of Victoria Harbor.On the hotel’s 118th story, floor-to-ceiling windows allow for 360 degree views of Hong Kong.

And like most Ritz-Carltons, the room rate here is pricey, with deluxe rooms starting at $770 a night.

But this Ritz will only hold the title until 2014, when Shanghai opens J-Hotel, planned to stand 1,970 feet.
