In the current Leisure/Travel magazine, they cited the new highest tower in Hong Kong (1588 feet), with a Ritz Carlton occupying the topmost floors, with the lobby on the 103rd floor.

Each room is equipped with a telescope. Rates beginning at $770.

Notwithstanding the price, do you think you'd get a good night's sleep up there with a room on the 110th floor without a parachute in the room, just in case.............?D

I have been in many high rise buildings world wide. Sure the structure is stable and I would stay.

Safer on the top floor than the bottom. Isn't that where the weight of the building would end up? (addressing your parachute concerns

That said, I'd leave the blinds open and fall asleep to the beauty of total darkness being up, up up above the city lights

More than likely, this hotel is nonsmoking, and I, still being a smoker, what am I facing? Up, down, up down, up down! And God forbid the elevator isn't quick enough!!!

I can only imagine what the view would be like ... I was very impressed by the breathtaking views from the 45th floor of my hotel room in NYC and the views from the 86th floor of the ESB ....
