Marco Polo’s Hong Kong ho­tels get an up­date

Business World - - WEEKENDER - Michelle Anne P. Soli­man

THREE Marco Polo ho­tels in Hong Kong have got­ten an up­date with con­tem­po­rary lob­bies and ex­te­ri­ors, and an ad­di­tional Con­ti­nen­tal Club floor of suites.

All lo­cated in the Tsim Sha Tsui dis­trict in Kowloon, the Marco Polo Hongkong, Gate­way, and Prince ho­tels form part of Har­bour City — Hong Kong’s largest shop­ping com­plex with more than 450 shops in­clud­ing lead­ing lux­ury brands.

“Filipino guests love shop­ping, eat­ing, and new ex­pe­ri­ences when they are trav­el­ing around. As a world-fa­mous shop­ping par­adise and culi­nary cap­i­tal, Hong Kong is an at­trac­tive des­ti­na­tion with a huge va­ri­ety of shop­ping and din­ing op­tions for Filipino guests to choose from,” Marco Polo Ho­tels – Hong Kong Di­rec­tor of Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Samantha Poon said in an e-mail to Busi­nessWorld.

Ms. Poon ex­plained the up­dates in a pre­sen­ta­tion at a me­dia din­ner on Oct. 26 at Marco Polo Or­ti­gas Manila.

The land­mark Marco Polo Hongkong has up­graded its build­ing façade over­look­ing the Vic­to­ria Habour, while the Prince Ho­tel has un­veiled a more con­tem­po­rary lobby.

To en­hance client com­fort, Gate­way Ho­tel opened a new Con­ti­nen­tal Club floor with 21 rooms and suites over­look­ing bustling Can­ton Road. The Club floor of­fers a stylish de­sign and lat­est tech­nol­ogy for trav­el­ers.

“There is a con­stantly in­creas­ing trend of Filipino guests’ visit to the three Marco Polo ho­tels in the pre­vi­ous two years,” Ms. Poon said in an e-mail.

She noted that Gate­way Ho­tel is rel­a­tively the most pop­u­lar among the three ho­tels in Hong Kong. “Chic Gate­way Ho­tel boasts so­phis­ti­cated in­te­ri­ors within a stylish ur­ban sanc­tu­ary. All of its spa­cious rooms and suites fea­ture sleek de­sign el­e­ments evok­ing a con­tem­po­rary res­i­den­tial feel,” she said in her e-mail.

“Of course if you wish to en­joy the breath­tak­ing view of Vic­to­ria Har­bour, Marco Polo Hongkong Ho­tel is def­i­nitely the choice. Al­ter­na­tively, Prince Ho­tel is at the doorstep of the China Ferry Ter­mi­nal where ferry ser­vices to Hong Kong’s fascinating neigh­bor­ing cities in­clud­ing Ma­cau and other ar­eas in China, such as Zhuhai, Zhong­shan are avail­able.”

In ad­di­tion, ho­tel guests may en­joy Hong Kong’s long­est-run­ning out­door beer fes­ti­val, the Ger­man Bier­fest, which is on­go­ing un­til Nov. 11 at the Marco Polo Hongkong. An ex­ten­sive se­lec­tion of Ger­man beers are be­ing served, in­clud­ing the fa­mous Erdinger Weißbräu. Guests are en­ter­tained by tra­di­tional per­for­mances by the Noten­hobler.

“We rec­om­mend Filipino guests to visit Hong Kong dur­ing late au­tumn, from Oc­to­ber to around Christ­mas time when the weather is rel­a­tively cool and pleas­ant... They may en­joy a pre­cious mo­ment with their loved ones dur­ing Christ­mas, one of their fa­vorite cel­e­bra­tion with fam­ily,” she said.

Marco Polo Ho­tels – Hong Kong won the Merit Award at the 2017 Hong Kong Merit Awards Qual­ity Award cer­e­mony in July. The award rec­og­nizes out­stand­ing per­for­mances and qual­ity stan­dards of or­ga­ni­za­tions in all fields of in­dus­try and busi­ness. —
