Cracker: White Ghost - Robbie Coltrane (1996) - Ritz Carlton Hotel, Central

After being roped in to working on the HK Police's new murder case, Fitz wangles a deal to stay in what was once quite a swanky hotel near the Central waterfront. It was the Ritz Carlton - at the time a fairly new building - behind the HK Club sandwiched between Chater and Connaught Roads. In what must have been one of the shortest lifetimes of a building in HK the Ritz Carlton was opened in 1993 and demolished only 15 years later in 2008. An unbelievably short time even by HK standards.

Anyway, in case you don't remember what it looked like here are the screen grabs.

Notice the Furama Hotel next door on the right. Both buildings have been replaced, the Furama by the AIA building and the Ritz Carlton by the CCB Building (and this was at a time when the Govt was moaning about a shortage of hotel rooms...).
