Over on Jaunted, you can get our inside looks at some of the world’s best airline lounges, so we thought we’d do something similar here and start talking about some of the hotel lounges we’ve frequented for our series on Hotel Club Lounges. Today, we're having a look inside the Executive Club Lounge at the Four Seasons Hong Kong.

Set within the International Finance Centre, the Four Seasons sits nearly on the water’s edge on Hong Kong Island. Before we zoomed up to the 45th floor to peek inside the hotel’s Executive Club Lounge, we had breakfast in The Lounge downstairs, which had us pleasantly surprised for its relatively affordable menu. Hong Kong’s luxury hotels are notoriously expensive, so we wouldn’t have thought scrambled eggs on toasted English muffins with bacon and avocado, a fresh orange juice, and a latte would take the total only up to just over US$20. It was delicious too, and the free WiFi for 2 hours helped us take care of a few things as well.

Stepping out of the lift on level 45, you turn to face the reception desk at the end of a short hallway. We liked the dramatic black high-gloss walls, the sculpture, and the colorful painting at the back. The hotel has 399 rooms and suites, with some categories having either a Western or contemporary Chinese design. Club access costs HKD1,400 (about $180) a night for two people, and is included with Club Rooms and Suites.

Turn right at the reception desk and you’ll find a small business center, with a few workstations equipped with iMacs, printers, and the like.

Walking the other way, you’ll find a range of meeting rooms on your left, with the entrance to the Executive Club about midway to your right. There is light marble on the floors and floor-to-ceiling windows, behind which runs a thin balcony that you can step out to on a good day (more on that in a second). To the right is a section with more relaxed seating, mixing various sofas and armchairs.

Breakfast had just been cleared from the tables and chairs on the left, which had been so busy that it had spilled over into the boardroom at the end on the left, which can be used for an hour per stay by guests.

The Executive Club serves a breakfast buffet daily (there is a food station for eggs etc. to order), afternoon tea, and a light evening buffet with noodle station. Drinks are available all day, and as a Club guest you get up to six garments pressed complimentary a day.

Being on the 45th floor, and with all the skyscrapers of Hong Kong Island next to or behind you, the views out to Kowloon are normally pretty amazing, as you can see in this hotel shot.

We were all set on leading with our own shot of that Killer View, but the weather thought otherwise: it was raining sideways and all around unpleasant, which obscured most of the scenery outside. You can just about make out the bottom few floors of the ICC Tower that houses the Ritz-Carlton on the far left.

A Deluxe Peak View Room at the Four Seasons Hong Kong that includes access to the Executive Club Lounge starts at HKD5,900 (about$760) a night on a weekend early June.

one of the best lounges

this is by far one of the best lounges I have ever come across. Their live egg station is outstanding and the view is breathtaking!
