Located in between clustered buildings in the heavily crowded yet exceedingly popular Tsim Sha Tsui in Hong Kong is the 40-storey award-winning Hotel Panorama by Rhombus. It is the one & only one tallest triangular deluxe business hotel in the heart of a high-rise metropolis such as Hong Kong. Hotel Panorama is proud to announce that they have won the Best Business Hotel in China for three consecutive years (awarded at the China Hotel Forum), and The Best Business Hotel in Guangdong Hong Kong and Macau’ by Let’s Go Magazine in 2009 and 2010.
Hotel Panorama is within easy reach of many modes of transport including the nearest one being East Tsim Sha Tsui MTR (Exit N1 only a minute away by walking) and also exceedingly close to the hustle & bustle of Nathan Road (Hong Kong’s equivalent of London’s Oxford Street). Fear not to hide away your purse as the trendiest shopping malls are also facing the hotel, such as the exclusive K11 Art Mall, iSQUARE, The ONE and IMAX theatre complex.
Out of the four hotels that are managed in Hong Kong by the Rhombus group, Hotel Panorama is the largest hotel in terms of both size and the number of rooms it offers. Indeed, the initial reaction that one gets from observing the hotel is how grandular it is, and how lavishly decorated it is too.
If there are features that make this 324-guestroom hotel stand out from the rest then you can be rest assured that one of the key things on the list would be the stunning views that the hotel provides of Victoria Harbour or the city. Those that are fortunate to stay in a room with the harbour view then because of the unique triangular architectural design of the building you’ll be treated to splendid views across from Kowloon City on the left hand side to the Central business district across to the right on Hong Kong Island. Every room is neatly designed to have a contemporary feel and look to it bringing along comfort, convenience and an attentive personalized service.
Altogether, there are five different types of categories available: silver guestrooms are fitted with comfort and style that matches the ambiance of the east blended in with the west. All the toiletries in the Silver rooms are provided complimentary by Hotel Panorama’s own unique brand. While the gold guestrooms and platinum guestrooms (also known as ‘executive club harborview’ and ‘executive club Harborview suites’) offer the following: a luxury setting with extra space, breathtaking views across the Victoria Harbour, complimentary evening cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, complimentary usage of the Rhombus executive lounge on the 39th floor, designer toiletries by Crabtree & Evelyn and much more. The ethos is to provide an experience that is as close to being ‘home away from home’ as can be. Those guests residing in the executive club Harborview suites can also benefit from a complimentary airport express train ticket as well as the complimentary usage of the Rhombus club boardroom for 1 hour daily. The latter is an exclusive retreat for conducting business.
To keep your culinary delights happy there are three areas where you can keep yourself busy throughout the day and night. The first two eateries are cafe express and sweet corner. Both are located on the first floor. The former serves up international all-day dining delights with buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner, or a la carte menu; while the latter offers a tempting array of scrumptious cakes and pastries that are freshly made on site. The third eatery, Santa Lucia Restaurant & Sky Bar, is perhaps more posh and classier than the former two ones located on the first floor; and you’ll probably need a lovely drink to cool down those heels after all that walking around town. Located on the 38th floor Santa Lucia Restaurant & Sky Bar provides unmatchable views right across the Victoria Harbour while offering modern cuisine and ultra creative beverages.
The highlight of the hotel has to be the sky garden and putting green located at the 40th floor, where guests can sip a few drinks, relax while chatting with company and marvel at the glorious views right across the Victoria Harbour, which become alive with energy and neon at night-time.

If you are an investor or a trend watcher then you may find this website useful as investing has a lot to do with personal observations and finding the ideal trend or next big thing. The average human on the street frequently knows far more about the state of the economy than politicians, university professors, subject matter experts, and financial analysts who seldom travel, or if they do so, only from one hotel to another hotel! The pulse and vibrancy of an economy is nowhere more visible than on a country's streets.
