"The world's highest hotel"

Ritz-Carlton on Tuesday opened what is said to be the world's highest hotel in the 1,588-foot International Commerce Centre in Hong Kong. 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, 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.
