Almost every hotel will offer you a special discount or custom rate for longer-term stays of a week or more—and some, like JIA and Lanson Place Hotel in Causeway Bay, are especially equipped for residential guests. So be sure to compare prices first if it's savings you're after. But if you prefer a more hands-off atmosphere in which to relax during your sojourn, consider renting a serviced apartment. The following properties, which are all licensed to accommodate tenants by the week or by the day, were chosen for their compelling locations, boutique-style qualities, and cozy but comfortable interiors. However, as most of these are inhabited year-round by monthly renting expatriates, it's best to call early and discuss dates, rates and conditions with sales well in advance.
