InterConti Hong Kong to close for spectacular transformation
Hong Kong – 8 August 2017 –
InterContinental Hong Kong is expected to close for a major renovation in the first quarter of 2019, with the entire renovation taking 12-16 months.
The hotel will undergo what is says will be a spectacular transformation that will position it as one of the top hotels not only in Asia, but also as one of the world’s most iconic hotels.
The total transformation will span all guest rooms and suites including bathrooms, all public areas, restaurants and event venues, as well as a redesign of the building façade with a contemporary new look.
The hotel’s restaurants and event venues are anticipated to reopen in the evenings from late summer 2019. Yan Toh Heen, InterContinental Hong Kong’s 2-Michelin star Cantonese restaurant, will remain open for dinner throughout the renovation.
Curiosity Inc., the Tokyo based studio founded by Lead Designer Gwenael Nicolas, has been appointed to create the redesign and complete transformation of the hotel’s guest rooms and suites, as well as the hotel’s iconic lobby.
Claus Pedersen, general manager, InterContinental Hong Kong, says, “For over three decades our hotel has enjoyed a loyal following of guests not only because of our acclaimed dining, accommodations and harbour views, but also because of the outstanding service by our dedicated employees.”
