Inside the Room of the World's Highest Hotel.

I walked into room 112-16 at the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong and immediately made myself a cup of tea; thanks to the kettle and Nespresso machines in all the rooms, it's easy to relax at the highest hotel in the world.

With views of Hong Kong outside my window and purple love seat to fall into, there was absolutely nothing wrong with this afternoon.

The luxury hotel group did right by guests when they designed their rooms - smart, efficient, elegant, yet comfortable, and with the best views in the world.

The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong is officially open, and the excitement happening in the world's highest hotel continues to drive intrigue.

Last week we brought you a first-hand look at the six restaurants that claim space inside the luxury hotel, and having been on the inside of the property for weeks I can assure you each one of these restaurants is worthy of your reservation.

But should you feed the need to stay the night at the hotel, you won't be disappointed in the rooms.

The 312 guest rooms occupying floors 104-117 come in 13 different varieties, each with a view you won't soon forget.

Whether you choose to stay in a standard room or one of the hotel's suites, you can expect the following:
  • Frette linens and silk throw pillows in colors and patterns to accentuate the room's minimalist decor.
  • Workstations with ergonomic chairs designed specifically for the hotel.
  • Bathrobes and slippers.
  • Asprey of London bathroom amenities.
  • LCD TVs in the bedroom and bathroom.
  • Electrical outlets on both sides of the bed, as well as at the workstation (with international adapters).
  • Nespresso coffee maker.
  • Wires and wireless access in all rooms, including public spaces.
  • Views that on a clear day, when you use the telescope in your room, you can see all the way to mainland China.
A stay on the Club Level (floor 116) or an upgrade to Club Level access gets you 24-hour Club service including four daily food presentations (breakfast, lunch, high tea, and light bites).

Don't miss the breakfast during your stay, which includes a fresh omelet station and plenty of dim sum to get you started on the right foot.

The dedicated concierges can help check you in and out, set up transportation around Hong Kong and to the airport, or help put together an itinerary for your stay.

The best part?

While the food is great, the rooms are spacious and the amenities are first-class, nothing beats the view.

My suggestion: check in, head to your room and spend some quality time with your view. Order a glass of wine or make yourself some tea and enjoy being on top of the world.
