港朗豪酒店经翻新优化后,易名为香港康得思酒店,成为朗廷酒店集团旗下康得思酒店及度假酒店品牌的首间旗舰酒店,坐拥42层,直通旺角地铁站和朗豪坊购物中心,附近就是有名的女人街、庙街,地点优越,出行方便。

康得思(Cordis)一词源自拉丁文,意思是“心”,带出酒店核心价值——一切从心出发,不管是服务还是住宿体验,力求带来别出心裁的享受,营造宾至如归的感觉。

酒店大堂设在三楼,一进门必不会错过大堂中央的朱铭雕塑。形容这是一家艺术酒店一点不为过,酒店收藏1500多件当代中国艺术品,价值超过港币3500万,除了酒店大堂,还展示在其他公共空间,令酒店渗透着低调别致的艺术氛围。

酒店有664间客房,并有多达19种房型供选择。建议把自己“升级”到36楼的贵宾会,专享礼遇包括私人入住登记手续办理、免费烫衣服务、“川”水疗中心尊贵待遇等。尤其诱人的是它的Club Lounge,全日供应精致小吃、餐点美食和特色饮料。我入住那天已是下午三四点,午餐没吃,饥肠辘辘,放下行李后即到Club Lounge医肚,虽是简单的卷饼三明治,却做得色香味俱全,绝对值得一赞!

所谓“从心出发”,充分体现在酒店服务的细微处——该有的都有,意想不到的也有。比如每房一个handy智能手机,不但提供免费无限国际长途电话服务至新加坡、澳大利亚、中国、英国、美国,还能带着出门,不管走到哪都有无限量wifi供应,而且是免费的,实在是设想周到。不但如此,每晚回返酒店开门进房,还有许多小惊喜等着我,一会是点心果汁,一会是眼罩和帮助睡眠的香氛包,感觉非常窝心。

如有时间,千万要到酒店的粤菜餐馆明阁体验一下舌尖的快感,那可是连续七年获米其林加持的星级食府。位于酒店顶层的水疗中心“川”也不容错过,一系列护理根据中国传统医学的基本原理,有益于精神的放松和身心灵平衡。

The Lang­ham Place Ho­tel is now known as the Cordis, Hong Kong, and the first flag­ship ho­tel for the Cordis brand un­der the Lang­ham Group fol­low­ing a round of re­fur­bish­ments. The 42-storey ho­tel is con­ve­niently lo­cated, with di­rect ac­cess to Mongkok MTR sta­tion and the Lang­ham Place shop­ping mall as well as easy ac­cess to Tung Choi Street and Tem­ple Street.

The name “Cordis” comes from the Latin word for “heart” and rep­re­sents the core val­ues of the ho­tel brand: tailored and warm ser­vice from the heart, and an in­tu­itive ser­vice at­ti­tude that re­flects the essence of hos­pi­tal­ity, so vis­i­tors feel truly at home and have an un­for­get­table visit. Dur­ing my re­cent stay, I felt the ho­tel had hit the mark.

En­ter­ing the lobby on Level Three, one is greeted by an im­pres­sive sculp­ture by artist Ju Ming, sig­nalling the ho­tel’s as­pi­ra­tions as an art ho­tel. It is home to over 1,500 pieces of con­tem­po­rary Chi­nese art val­ued at over HK$35 mil­lion (S$6.5 mil­lion).

The ho­tel of­fers 664 guest rooms in 19 vari­a­tions, but I rec­om­mend that guests upgrade them­selves to the VIP Club on Level 36. Club perks in­clude a pri­vate check-in process, free iron­ing ser­vices and VIP treat­ment at the Chuan Spa. Es­pe­cially en­tic­ing is the Club Lounge, which of­fers gourmet snacks and dishes and spe­cialty drinks all day, per­fect for those with hur­ried sched­ules.

Ser­vice from the heart was pal­pa­ble in all kinds of ways. For in­stance, a smart­phone is placed in each room for guests to make free IDD calls to coun­tries such as Sin­ga­pore, Aus­tralia, China, Bri­tain and the United States. The phone also al­lows for free lim­it­less Wi-Fi con­nec­tiv­ity even out­side of the ho­tel. I was also greeted with one sur­prise af­ter an­other upon my re­turn to the room each night: a glass of fruit juice, an eye mask, aro­mather­apy pack­ets for a bet­ter night’s sleep... all sweet ges­tures that make the guest feels pam­pered.

If you have the time, pop into Ming Court, the ho­tel’s Can­tonese restau­rant that has re­ceived a Miche­lin-star rat­ing for seven con­sec­u­tive years; and the Chuan Spa, lo­cated on the top level of the ho­tel. The spa of­fers treat­ments based on tra­di­tional Chi­nese medicine prin­ci­ples that em­pha­sise spir­i­tual, emo­tional and bod­ily bal­ance.

康得思酒店位于繁华的九龙中心,坐拥42层,有冷气走廊直通朗豪坊购物中心。

Club Lounge onLevel 36 of­fers a more re­lax­ing abode for guests.

The over­sized bath­tub, plush linens and plump pil­lows make the guest feels pam­pered.
