The Best Hong Kong Hotel Staycations To Book For Food Lovers
Eat, sleep, repeat—with international travel mostly out of the question for 2021, a staycation in the city is more attractive than ever; and if you’re the type to examine the in-room dining options more than the thread count of the bedsheets, there are plenty of gourmet-centric staycation packages to whet your appetite. It's especially true these days, when staying in is the new going out, and there is nothing more indulgent than rolling out of your king-sized bed to lope off to the award-winning restaurant downstairs for an early dinner and drinks, and then retreating to your room in a happy post-prandial daze. For the true glutton, these staycation packages are worth their weight in gold.
