It’s been a decade since the Lanson Place Hotel opened behind a Belle Époque–style facade on a tucked-away corner in Causeway Bay, bringing its distinct residential vibe to one of Hong Kong’s buzziest neighborhoods. It was also the first property in the city to be selected as a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World collection, thanks to its sleekly contemporary rooms (complete with kitchenettes and complimentary Handy smartphones), gracious staff, and facilities like the guests-only 133 Lounge, with its grand piano, Murano chandeliers, and adjacent library. To mark its 10th year, the hotel has released a CD recorded by local musicians in the lounge, which also hosts regular evening jazz jam sessions. Better still, Lanson Place’s 10th Anniversary Celebratory package, valid through October and priced from HK$2,015 (about US$260), gets guests a room upgrade, daily breakfast, evening cocktails, late checkout, and other perks—not that there aren’t plenty of reasons to check in already. —David Tse
