Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - PARTNERSHIP -

Few ho­tel lo­ca­tions are as cov­eted as the Kowloon har­bourfront in Hong Kong, and the Gate­way Ho­tel from Wharf Ho­tels takes full ad­van­tage of its stel­lar po­si­tion.

Lo­cated at the junc­tion of Can­ton Road and Haiphong Road in Tsim Sha Tsui, Gate­way Ho­tel is a short walk from the city's fa­mous Star Ferry and en­joys ex­cel­lent con­nec­tiv­ity via the nearby MTR sub­way sta­tion and bus ter­mi­nal. Mean­while its po­si­tion within Har­bour City – Hong Kong’s largest shop­ping com­plex – makes the ho­tel the ul­ti­mate place for mod­ern, com­fort­able ac­com­mo­da­tion and a truly mem­o­rable shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence.

It's not just what's around the prop­erty that is im­pres­sive – the Gate­way Ho­tel's own de­sign and of­fer­ings are first class and soon it will in­tro­duce a com­pre­hen­sive, award-win­ning re­design to its up­per­most Con­ti­nen­tal Club floor.

“There is a high de­mand in the core com­mer­cial, shop­ping and en­ter­tain­ment dis­trict of Tsim Sha Tsui for a su­pe­rior level of hos­pi­tal­ity,” ex­plained Dalip Singh, Gen­eral Man­ager of Marco Polo Ho­tels – Hong Kong.

“To meet these needs, we trans­formed the en­tire top floor of the ho­tel to of­fer the finest ac­com­mo­da­tion with our sig­na­ture wel­com­ing hos­pi­tal­ity that makes our dis­cern­ing guests feel like they have come home.”

The cen­tre­piece of the ho­tel’s top floor is the Con­ti­nen­tal Club Lounge on the 15th floor, which evokes a sense of mod­ern sim­plic­ity with a sub­tle touch of East­ern soph­sti­ca­tion. The ex­pe­ri­ence ex­tends be­yond that of a stan­dard busi­ness lounge, in­stead of­fer­ing a so­cial and net­work­ing haven with ex­clu­sive priv­i­leges in­clud­ing com­pli­men­tary daily break­fast, af­ter­noon tea, evening cock­tails and all-day re­fresh­ments. Pri­vate check-in and check­out is also avail­able for all Con­ti­nen­tal Club floor pa­trons.

Along­side the lounge, Gate­way Ho­tel also gave a facelift to its gue­strooms and suites on the 17th floor – each of which of­fers vi­brant city views over bustling Can­ton Road – and now all rooms through­out the ho­tel are equipped with a Handy smart­phone pro­vid­ing com­pli­men­tary lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional calls to 10 re­gions, as well as wifi, a range of deluxe ameni­ties and daily re­plen­ish­ment of the com­pli­men­tary mini­bar.

Tea and a Ne­spresso cof­fee ma­chine with a se­lec­tion of com­pli­men­tary cof­fee are also pro­vided in all rooms, while all suites of­fer an in­vig­o­rat­ing rain­fall shower and sep­a­rate bath­tub in lux­u­ri­ous mar­ble bath­rooms.

Gate­way Ho­tel also of­fers a gourmet des­ti­na­tion at Three on Can­ton. Guests can ex­pe­ri­ence a tempt­ing se­lec­tion of the world’s most pop­u­lar cuisines, en­joy the am­bi­ence at the lounge and bar, un­wind at Be on Can­ton – the al­fresco ter­race with a stylish mod­ern edge – or throw pri­vate par­ties in the wine room and four ex­clu­sive func­tion rooms.

Other leisure fa­cil­i­ties in­clude a swim­ming pool at the Marco Polo Hongkong Ho­tel and use of the 24-hour gym at Prince Ho­tel.
