There is little the concierge team can’t do at The Peninsula Hong Kong, one of the oldest and most venerable luxury hotels in the city. The concierge staff at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel can arrange Rolls-Royce transfers to and from the airport in a car from its famous fleet of 14 “Peninsula green” Phantoms. (Green Mini Coopers and mini-vans are available to guests for half-day excursions, too). As the only hotel in Hong Kong with its own helipad and helicopter service, flight-seeing is an activity the concierges arrange often. The team also knows all the best restaurants, spas, and custom tailors — a Hong Kong specialty — and the right contacts to help get you in the door. Because Hong Kong has so many specialized types of food, restaurant selection is an especially important task the staff helps guests with daily. Concierges can also handle more technical issues such as quickly obtaining a visa to cross the border into mainland China. For a primer on the best things to see and do while in Hong Kong, visit the Concierge Choice page on the hotel’s website.
