With the main lobby of this hotel located on the 102nd floor of the International Commerce Centre in Hong Kong, the latest Ritz-Carlton destination in Asia gets high marks in both amenities and physical location.

Other hotels may have more floors, but none have an address with the altitude of the new Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong. It is the world's highest address for a hotel, according to the hotelier. The new high-rise property is the company's 16th hotel in Asia and 75th location worldwide.

"The opening of this landmark hotel in Hong Kong is the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication to delivering the very best product, facilities and service in this international gateway city," said Herve Humler, President and Chief Operations Officer of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C. "We are taking luxury to new heights in every sense."
