Crowning a 126-year-old building that was once the city’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 D’Aguilar suite to experience furnishings that would not be out of place in the English countryside. Lower floors feature five restaurants including Mariner’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
