An urban resort but still a chic hotel and a retreat for the vacationers but a fortunate urban refuge for the business travelers, the Intercontinental Hong Kong hotel is acclaimed worldwide as among the best hotels for leisure and business on the planet. With the major enhancements, it has become the most stylish hotel on this island; while with its uniquely convenient harbor location, it has become the most preferred hotel for enjoying the matchless vistas of the island as well as of the Victoria Harbor.

This Asia-Pacific flagship hotel in Kowloon is also admired for its unequaled facilities as well as services. Ideally nestled in the core of the shopping, entertainment, and business area of Tsim Sha Tsui and on the rim of the harbor, Intercontinental Hong Kong is very close to the Hong Kong Space Museum, Cultural Centre, Museum of Art, Star Ferry Terminal, New World Center, the famous Nathan Road, and Mass Transit Railway (MTR).

Rooms

This most trendy hotel of 17 floors is the home of 495 rooms of which there are 92 suites offering the great vistas of the Victoria harbor. If you are really looking for the best accommodation here and willing to pay, I would recommend the most striking Presidential Suite that is the Asia’s most impressive suite as well as the island’s largest one with the total area of 7,000 square feet of which the terrace holding the infinity pool is a whooping 2,500 square feet with the bets vistas of the island as well as the harbor. If at all you are looking for something totally new, pick from the two specialty ones: Terrace suite and the CEO suite both equipped with the big terrace as well as the Jacuzzi with the harbor vistas.

Boasting a modern and trendy ambiance, the SPOON by Alain Ducasse is a top-class restaurant to offer French meals; while the NOBU InterContinental on the second floor is admired for its modern Japanese cuisine for lunch as well as dinner. For the authentic Cantonese cuisine, the Yan Toh Heen restaurant featuring also dim sum is the best. This one is located on the arcade level and facilitates both afternoon and night meals.
