Hong Kong’s iconic hotel reopens

After an extensive three-year renovation to its lobby, 394 guest rooms and suites, Continental Club, and dining venues, Hong Kong’s popular Prince Hotel has opened its doors once again to the public. The refurbishment beautifully delivers bright and functional spaces, with colorful aesthetics that embody the vibrant energy of Hong Kong.

Prince Hotel, located on Canton Road in Tsim Sha Tsui district, is integrated with Harbour City, the largest luxury dining and retail shopping complex in the city, and is within walking distance to the scenic harbor-front promenade, the Art, Palace, Science and Space Museums, as well as the Kowloon Park. With the Star Ferry, the Tsim Sha Tsui Underground, the Kowloon Canton Railway Station, and the high-speed rail link all within just a short walk away, hotel guests can easily have quick access to Hong Kong Island and beyond.

The ultramodern design of the bar at Savvy is a natural magnet for fun-loving guests

Greeting guests at the intimate ground-level lobby are floor-to-ceiling windows that reveal the close proximity of the hotel to neighboring luxury brands. The hotel’s gray marble floor is enlivened by vivid pops of blue and orange, while the design scheme banners color-changing light panels with abstract brush strokes and modern artwork.

The spacious guest rooms and suites, with areas ranging from 29 to 56 square meters, all have breathtaking views of the harbor and the city and use only 3 distinct color schemes — imperial red, sunrise yellow, and navy blue. The same colors are reflected in some interior artwork and select pieces of furniture. A very nice feature of each room is a Chaise Lounge for guests to enjoy their much-needed quiet moments by the window.

Hong Kong’s iconic Prince Hotel is right in the heart of downtown Kowloon

The Continental Club suites on the 16th  and 17th  floors have an open-plan layout and have neutral brown and beige colors. All have walk-in bathrooms with marble countertops, open closets, and separate showers. Guests on these floors have easy access to the Lounge with space to work or relax in or have their daily breakfast, afternoon tea, and evening cocktails.

Fast becoming a popular venue inside the hotel is Savvy, on the 3rd floor, a dining outlet that occupies 8000 square feet which includes a bar, a lounge, and a stylish restaurant. Two private dining rooms are available in the same venue for business meetings, celebrations, and exclusive dining experiences. Together with his team, Chef de Cuisine  Derek Ng, with his 30-plus years of culinary expertise, prepares daily a buffet of Asian and Western specialties, including sustainable seafood, hearty bowls of noodles, vegetarian and gluten-free options, and grilled meats.

The newly renovated lobby is refreshing and functionally designed

Prince Hotel is a Marco Polo Hotel property, together with Gateway Hotel, Hong Kong Hotel, and Marco Polo Hong Kong Hotel, all of which are connected to Harbour City, which has more than 50 shops and the world’s leading luxury brands.

Marco Polo Hotels is an international chain of de luxe hotels with properties in Hong Kong, Mainland China, and the Philippines.  All its hotels reflect the philosophy of its namesake, discoverer Marco Polo, as they invite guests to explore and experience a destination.

The guest rooms offer a breathtaking view of the harbor

To celebrate its reopening, Prince Hotel has a “We Are Open” Promo, available until October 31, which includes a free upgrade, welcome drinks at Savvy, in-room house red wine, and a chocolate gift box. Additional information may be obtained and reservations may be made through +852 2113 1888 or  prince@marcopolohotels.com.

The Continental Club on the 16th floor is elegant and is a cozy cocoon for harried travelers

YOUR MONDAY CHUCKLE:
Dad loves to eat and does it with gusto,
to the distress of my mother who worries about his weight. One evening Dad
was devouring a snack of cheese spread
and crackers. As he scraped the last bit
of spread from its container, he asked Mom
if she wanted to save the jar.
“No, its OK,” Mom replied.
“Go ahead and eat it!”
