Dining with a sky-high view in Hong Kong

April 2, 2011 |  6:00 am

The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, opened what is reported to be the world's highest hotel in the 1,588-foot International Commerce Centre in Hong Kong. Our colleagues in Travel report that:

The lobby sits on the 103rd floor, and the hotel continues its vertical climb to the Ozone Bar on the 118th floor. The rooms, restaurants -- including Tosca, above -- a pool, fitness center and spa feature views of Victoria Bay and beyond. Published rates start at $775 a night. Note that the center isn't the tallest building in the world. That title stays with the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which is about 2,717 feet tall.

You can check out the rest of the photo gallery here. What do you think about dining at such heights? (I think it would make me a little queasy. But maybe I could sit with my back to the window.)
