The Lanson Place Hotel Really Is Your Home Away From Home

With its European design sensibility, it’s not surprising that The Lanson Place Hotel in Hong Kong would quote George Bernard Shaw in its brochure. The famous Irish playwright once said: “The great advantage of a hotel is that it is a refuge from home life.” Even if your home life is grand, this 194-room hotel, which is located in the city’s signature shopping area, is definitely a posh refuge. Each of the rooms is tastefully decorated and cozy. Being able to make tea—when you want—is always the mark of a place that wants you to feel very much at home. The other nice touch is the complimentary smartphone that comes with free local and select international calls. (Includes Canada!) It’s tough to keep up a fitness routine when you’re on the road, but the window-filled gym will inspire you to run off your jet leg. Later, you can head guilt-free to the 133 Lounge for cocktails and live jazz on Thursday and Friday.
