That question elicits a response tantamount to a a small book, but here is a brief bit of information to set the ball rolling:

Recommended hotels in Colombo -
It depends on what exactly you are looking for. Nevertheless, the better 5 star hotels include:

Cinnamon Grand
Cinnamon Lakeside
The Hilton
Taj Samudra

Best Tourist Attractions -
Again this is quite subjective, but here are a few I would suggest -

Sigiriya Rock Fortress (near Dambulla)
Pollonaruwa Ruins
Pinnawella Elephant Orphanage
The Beaches (and Resorts) - (Unawatuna and Hikkaduwa - thriving nightlife to kick)
Tea Factories/ The hill station of Nuwara Eliya

... the list is can go on :)

Might I ask where you are from and what cricket matches you intend to watch?

Cheers and I'm sure you will have a splendid time in our beautiful island.
