InterContinental Hong Kong’s long driveway leads to a large fountain. When you step out of the car, bellmen wearing white uniforms and matching white bell caps will greet you and open the doors to the hotel. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel building is covered in red granite, and because it’s just 17 stories high, it’s a bit more horizontal than vertical in shape. The recently renovated lobby features sleek leather couches and comfortable chairs, where you can sit, relax and take in views of Victoria Harbour. The design, inspired by the hotel’s location on the harbor, has a sophisticated look with a fresh, modern flair. The C-shaped gold lamps and the undulating patterns in the custom-made carpet and curved banquettes look like the waves outside.
As you make your way through the lobby, you’ll find Harbourside restaurant, which offers large, floor-to-ceiling windows with amazing views of Victoria Harbour.
The guest room hallways feature light wood-paneled doors, beige silk wall coverings with calligraphy paintings, black-and-beige patterned carpet and orchid arrangements on large glass-top tables. Vistas of the harbor are showcased in the public areas, like the Pool Terrace and the dining venues, as well as in the harbor-view guest rooms. Rooms are contemporary in style with Asian accents, modern amenities, updated technology and large windows — of course, all of the design at the Hong Kong hotel shows off its best asset, its on-the-water location.
