This boutique hotel describes its fantasy-filled design as though "fashioned from Salvadore Dali's fertile imagination." In other words, The Luxe Manor distinguishes itself from the pack with whimsical, eclectic furnishings that border on the surreal, with rooms decorated with fake fireplaces, picture frames framing nothing at all, and wall-mounted flatscreen TVs that look like gilded mirrors. If that's not enough, there are also six themed-suites that take it up a notch, like the Nordic suite designed to make guests feel like they're sleeping in an igloo (or an ice cube—I can't decide which). Guests can stop for a drink in the Dada Bar + Lounge with its mismatched furnishings and live jazz on weekends. This is a fun place to stay, in a lively area of Tsim Sha Tsui, especially for travelers allergic to cookie-cutter hotels. And by the way, the correct pronunciation of this hotel is "Deluxe Manor," more proof that here nothing is as it seems.
