Rosewood Hong Kong Named Best Urban Hotel

Located in the heart of the Victoria Dockside art and design district, the new Rosewood Hong Kong is a vertical private estate that serves as a global icon for the international luxury hotel brand.

Comprising short-stay hotel accommodations, serviced residences, and boutique office space, the tower announces from afar the reinvigorated Victoria Dockside waterfront neighborhood. The 65-story building celebrates Hong Kong’s impressive verticality, and signals its evolution from a center of commerce to a cultural capital, offering a distinguished new addition to the city’s skyline. Its stepped, irregular massing expresses the building’s multiple programmatic divisions while maintaining a cohesive exterior language. Stone piers communicate the tower’s verticality, while glass insets offer unobstructed views of Victoria Harbor, Hong Kong, and Kowloon Peak.

With interiors by Tony Chi, Rosewood Hong Kong pays homage to the family that built and operates it, and the legacy of its surrounding community and forebears. Interpreting the collective tastes of its owners, which span generations and connects past to present, the property boasts a commitment to heritage artistry and craftsmanship, residential living for modern day alongside contemporary Deco inspirations.
