The Como Melbourne – MGallery
Operated by the French hospitality company Accor, this hotel has suites, apartments and loft-style penthouses. Its customer review score (3.17 out of 4) is commendable, but the hotel’s No. 1 ranking was solidified by an even higher score (3.59) for having a rooftop pool, a swanky South Yarra address and access to medical teleconsultations at no extra cost.


The Branksome Hotel & Residences
Business travelers exhausted after a long-haul flight to Sydney needn’t travel far to reach this hotel — it’s a five-minute drive to the international airport, and just walking distance to the domestic one. It’s part hotel and part serviced apartment, with kitchens and washers and dryers in the rooms, plus a heated indoor pool and unlimited movies-on-demand for $8 a day.

Part of the Shangri-La hotel family, Kerry Hotel Beijing is for travelers who prioritize work-life balance, even on quick business trips.

Kerry Hotel Hong Kong
There are only three Kerry hotels in the world — and two ranked No. 1 on our city lists. Opened in 2017, the brand’s Hong Kong hotel combines creature comforts — such as in-room Nespresso machines and complimentary mini-bars — with expansive panoramas of Victoria Harbour from the Kowloon waterfront.

Fairmont Peace Hotel
This historical Art-Deco hotel dates to pre-war Shanghai, when the “who’s who” of the city convened there for business by day and high society mingling by night. A three-year $64 million renovation in 2010 restored the landmark hotel, located at the crossroads of two of the city’s most famous streets: the waterfront promenade known as The Bund, and the shoppers’ paradise of Nanjing Road.

InterContinental Shenzhen
A Euro-themed resort or a Chinese business hotel? This hotel is both. It’s got Spanish-style decor, a 22,000-square-foot swimming pool and a range of meetings spaces, including the “Galleon Salon Fiesta” — a replica, albeit double the size, of the “Santa Maria” vessel, used by Christopher Columbus when he landed on North America.

The Leela Palace New Delhi
Another Leela hotel — 1 of 13 in India — took the top prize in New Delhi, but overall it tied for No. 2 for all hotels in Asia-Pacific. The hotel exudes regal sophistication, while having the added perk of being close to Indira Gandhi International Airport.

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Jakarta, Pacific Place
Ranked first in Jakarta, this hotel also ranked No. 1 in all of Asia-Pacific in terms of total scores. Excellent customer reviews (3.47) combined with an even higher amenities score (3.76) make this hotel, which has direct access to the Indonesia Stock Exchange, the top hotel on the continent, according to CNBC’s list.

The Ritz-Carlton Osaka
A blend of English sophistication and Japanese minimalism, the Ritz-Carlton in Osaka is home to two Michelin-starred restaurants — La Baie and Tempura by Hanagatami — and a concierge team that customers say makes it easy to book tickets to local baseball games and restaurants before they arrive.

Park Hyatt Tokyo
This hotel was an institution long before it was featured in the Academy-award winning movie “Lost in Translation.” Located on the top 14 floors of Shinjuku Park Tower, it attracts business travelers who seek out its luxurious interiors and 360-degree views of Japan’s capital city.


Kuala Lumpur

Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara
Accor has nine hotels in Kuala Lumpur, but the city’s only Sofitel ranked No. 1 in Malaysia’s capital. Named after the affluent Damansara Heights neighborhood on the city’s west side, the hotel has room rates that include breakfast and club room access that are currently around $170 per night.

Makati Diamond Residences
Most of the guestrooms in this serviced apartment in the affluent area of Makati have kitchenettes and stoves, and larger units contain washer and dryers, walk-in closets, dishwashers and office areas. But it’s the extras that win over customers: a private cinema with La-Z-Boy chairs, a whiskey and cigar bar and a dining card that lets guests eat breakfast, which is included in the rate, in the hotel as well as nearby restaurants and cafes.

Four Seasons Hotel Singapore
Located near the Singapore Botanic Gardens and the shopping street of Orchard Road, this 20-storey hotel is known for its classically beautiful design and popular champagne Sunday brunch. It also has outdoor tennis courts, a rooftop pool and one of the hottest new restaurants in town — Nobu Singapore, which opened in June 2022.

South Korea


InterContinental Seoul COEX
COEX refers to the large exhibition space and mall connected to this hotel, making it a top choice for business travelers in Seoul’s Gangnam district. With more than 600 rooms, it’s huge — but the 30th floor Italian restaurant, Sky Lounge, is an intimate setting for business lunches overlooking the city.



W Taipei.

W Taipei
The claim-to-fame of this design-centric hotel is its location — many rooms have views of the entire length of Taipei 101, the tallest building in the world before Dubai’s Burj Khalifa was built. Bold, sleek and popping with color, the W Taipei has travelers covered outside of office hours with 24-hour room service and more on-site bars than restaurants.



The Athenee Hotel
Part of Marriott’s Luxury Collection of hotels, this hotel has a sweeping lobby staircase, marble bathrooms and free Muay Thai classes, but it’s the 24-hour butlers that take the service to the next level. Butlers come with club rooms and suite bookings, and they do everything from coffee service in the morning to unpacking luggage, shining shoes and ironing clothes.



Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi
French colonial influence runs throughout this hotel, from the architecture of the main building built in 1901 to the food at the upscale Le Beaulieu restaurant. The rooms in the historical Metropole Wing are under renovation, but the newer Opera Wing is open. With an overall score of 3.58, the hotel tied for 4th place out of 235 hotels on CNBC’s Asia-Pacific rankings.

A true stand-out, this hotel ranked No. 2 in customer reviews — and tied with The Leela Palace New Delhi for 2nd place overall — on CNBC’s list of the “Best Hotels for Business Travelers” in Asia-Pacific. Reviewers praise its location near the Saigon River and its “over the top” luxury decor.
