The grand main lobby in this large hotel has black-and-white Italian marble and a huge mural called 87 Taoist Immortals and based on an 8th-century Chinese scroll. Guest rooms have Asian themes with modern amenities, and the upper floors command fabulous views. Deluxe rooms have separate shower cubicles. The restaurants, which are frequented by locals, serve Cantonese cuisine (at Mandarin Court on the 35th floor) and award-winning chicken rice (at Chatterbox). Pros: local cuisine; central location; trusted brand.
