Crowning a 126-year-old building that was once the cityâ€™s Marine Police Headquarters, this heritage property features just 10 unique suites, each designed to reflect a distinct era of local history. Check in to the Tsing Lung room for hand-drawn, red-lacquer murals and a four-poster pagoda bed, or book the Dâ€™Aguilar suite to experience furnishings that would not be out of place in the English countryside. Lower floors feature five restaurants including Marinerâ€™s Rest, where guests can dine on British pub fare in an original 1881 holding cell, and Loong Toh Yuen, where fine tea and Cantonese cuisine are served in a dining room done up with Art Deco mirrors and an antique fireplace
