Luxury hotel chain Ritz-Carlton is to open the world’s tallest hotel in Hong Kong in 2010 with its top floor on the 118th storey, a news report said Wednesday. The six-star hotel will occupy the top 17 floors of Hong Kong’s tallest building, the 484-metre International Commerce Centre (ICC), the South China Morning Post reported. The hotel, with 312 guest rooms, will look out over Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour from Kowloon where the ICC building is being completed. Currently, the world’s tallest hotels are the 333-metre, 72-floor Rose Hotel in Dubai, followed by the 330-metre, 105-floor Ryogyong Hotel in Pyongyang and the 321-metre Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai. As well as being Hong Kong’s tallest building, the ICC will be the third highest in the world in terms of the height of its roof. The regional vice-president for Ritz-Carlton, Mark DeCocinis, told the newspaper the new hotel would be “a new social centre for Hong Kong” and said room rates would be at the top end of the market.
