Asian hotels and resorts - what's in and what's out, what's tired

When one thinks of the most luxurious 5 star hotel in Hong
Kong, the Peninsula Hotel, flagship hotel of The Peninsula Group
always comes to mind with its legendary elegance and history as
host to the world's most famous guests. While there are numerous
other 5 star hotels in the region, the Peninsula Hong Kong has set
the gold standard for the essence of a world class hotel, the ambience,
the impeccable level of service, the dining experience, even to
the sumptious afternoon tea in the hotel's grand lobby.
The new Peninsula Bangkok continues the gold standard.
Just recently opened in 1998, The Peninsula Bangkok is a luxurious
hearth that radiates the beauty and tradition of Thailand. Sitting
graciously on the west bank of the Chaophraya River, the hotel is
perfectly located near the business and shopping districts of Bangkok.
Sights and sounds abound, with the Golden Buddha Temples, the Reclining
Buddha, the Grand Palace, the Temple of Dawn and Chinatown all close-by.
Inside, you will find Asia's best cuisine, such as award winning
restaurants Mei Jiang and Jesters, and spacious rooms
