InterContinental Hong Kong sets itself apart from other luxury hotels in several ways. To begin, when you arrive at the hotel, a reception staff member will greet you and pull up your reservation on an iPad, instead of a computer. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s bellmen don all-white uniforms, and female front desk staff members wear chic Chanel-like knit suits. An escort will assist you to your room, where you’ll find a welcome amenity of fresh fruit and soon after will receive a delivery of hot tea. Rooms are spacious, and if you’ve requested one with a harbor view (and we recommend you do), you’ll have an amazing vista of the water and the skyline. Plush robes, slippers, complimentary Wi-Fi (for Club guests and Elite IHG Rewards Club members) and the hotel’s location just a few blocks from Kowloon Park and several nearby shopping malls make this Hong Kong hotel even more desirable.
But above all else, it’s InterContinental Hong Kong’s location directly on the harbor that truly sets it apart, since it can offer what many other hotels in the city cannot: a front-row seat to the popular Symphony of Lights that takes place daily at 8 p.m. along the waterfront. For 13 minutes each night, Hong Kong’s skyline lights up in every color of the rainbow. Head outside to the waterfront or relax at the Lobby Lounge with a Smoke and Mirrors cocktail (Chivas Regal, cherry liqueur, sweet vermouth, angostura bitters and oak wood smoke) to take in the light and laser show.
