Sil­ver-screen Dreams

The new bou­tique ho­tel Madera Hol­ly­wood, in­spired by the golden age of cinema, opens in red-car­pet style

Hong Kong Tatler - - Tatler Focus -

In the heart of Hong Kong’s bustling Cen­tral district is a new bou­tique ho­tel that screams Hol­ly­wood glam­our like no other. With un­tamed lux­ury at its core, the Madera Hol­ly­wood harks back to the golden age of Char­lie Chap­lin, Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe, Au­drey Hep­burn, Frank Si­na­tra and Bing Crosby—and is de­signed in the clas­sic Hol­ly­wood Re­gency style, which was par­tic­u­larly loved by the stars for its bold, bright colours.

Con­ve­niently lo­cated at 53 Hol­ly­wood Road, the eye-catch­ing Madera Hol­ly­wood is per­fect for your out-of-town vis­i­tors—or even a stay­ca­tion. Nes­tled in the vi­brant Soho district on the cor­ner of Peel Street, guests have a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ences at their doorstep. Aside from myr­iad restau­rants, bars, gal­leries and shops nearby, the area is home to at­trac­tions such as the for­mer Po­lice Mar­ried Quar­ters (PMQ) and the Man Mo Tem­ple.

The ho­tel, by the Madera Group (part of Hip Shing Hong Hold­ings), boasts 38 spa­cious onebed­room suites. Guests have six types of room ac­com­mo­da­tions to choose from, in­clud­ing the deluxe, premier, grand deluxe and grand premier suites, as well as two top-floor gems—the Mon­roe and Chap­lin suites. Room sizes range gen­er­ously from 600sqft to 750sqft and fea­ture mem­o­ra­bilia from icons of the sil­ver screen. The ho­tel also boasts the funky Hol­ly­wood Lounge for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, and a 24-hour gym with top-of-the-range equip­ment from the Ital­ian brand Techn­o­gym.

Nu­mer­ous in-room ameni­ties are also avail­able. On check-in, your guests will re­ceive a smart­phone with un­lim­ited data as well as free lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional calls. Once they’re in their room, they’ll adore the cute kitch­enette, the sooth­ing rain shower (with bath­room ameni­ties from the Gilchrist & Soames Lon­don Col­lec­tion), the 55-inch LED TV and JBL speak­ers. Some of the suites also in­clude mat­tresses from up­scale brand Dux­i­ana to en­sure guests sleep well af­ter a day of sight­see­ing.

David Fong, the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of fam­i­ly­owned Hip Shing Hong Hold­ings, which op­er­ates the ho­tel, ex­pressed his en­thu­si­asm for what sets Madera Hol­ly­wood apart from the rest. “Be­sides its great lo­ca­tion, Madera Hol­ly­wood of­fers a unique lux­ury ex­pe­ri­ence through our staff’s tailored ser­vices for our guests. We also pay a great deal of at­ten­tion to de­tail—to cre­ate a fun and stylish ho­tel to stay in and to make Madera Hol­ly­wood a great ad­di­tion to the Soho district.”

Set to open its doors this month, with spe­cial open­ing rates start­ing from HK$1,800, you can live like a star at the Madera Hol­ly­wood.
