InterContinental Hong Kong

Hong Kong, Asia and Far East

The hotel

It really is worth upgrading to a Harbour View Room at this fantastic hotel, because it's the greatest view in Hong Kong, and one of the greatest in the world. All contemporary rooms have 37" Sharp Aquos TVs, Bose DVD home entertainment systems, iPod/iPhone docking systems and "Handy" Smartphones, plus 24-hour butler service, round-the-clock in-room dining and concierge services. During your stay, try a signature “V-Sip Cocktail” in the stunning Lobby Lounge, the most spectacular place to watch the nightly 'Symphony of Lights' show, on Victoria Harbour. The hotel also offers outstanding dining options- all with stunning harbor views from THE STEAK HOUSE winebar + grill and NOBU to the 2-Michelin star Yan Toh Heen featuring exquisite Cantonese Cuisine and an Rech Alain Ducasse restaurant. The buffet in Harbourside Restaurant is probably the best in town, and service throughout the hotel is top notch. The superb range of facilities includes a large, heated outdoor swimming pool and the feng shui inspired I-Spa which offers Oriental healing and jet-lag relief treatments, plus the unique infinity spa pools overlooking the harbour.

We stayed for a short staycation back in late April. Whilst we had a nice room and view, we just felt the place was a little tired. We had heard that they will be going through a renovation but we now know that they were planning to close down (as they are now closed). Perpahs this was the reason things were a little 'off'.

My family spent 2 nights at the InterContinental in a waterfront view room and it was amazing. Well worth the upgrade. I particularly want to thanks Sophy Tsang the Guest Relations Officer who arranged a birthday cake for my wife when she saw it would be her birthday during our stay. A great touch.

The price was a little pricey, but then again it was worth it. We stayed 2 nights and had a waterfront view and the view was spectacular at night time. We slept with the curtains open so we could see the view should we awaken. Only had a snack from the bar once as we ate out most of the time.

We slept with the curtains open so we could see the view should we awaken. Only had a snack from the bar once as we ate out most of the time. Everyone was helpful, especially by the doormen who hailed taxis etc and opened doors and had an obsesive worry we were going to trip up over the steps leading to the entrance. Its worth staying, even for just one night. It was lovely! Read less

This is a belated review that I have meant to write for some time. I hosted my wedding reception at the InterContinental Hong Kong in November 2019. Service - Their wedding planning team is professional. I live abroad and had to plan the wedding overseas. The wedding liaison was extremely responsive to my questions. Wedding - From the site manager to the bridal butler, everyone was experienced. My wedding happened on a day where protests were escalated. We had to move very fast from procession to toasting tables to tables to taking pictures with each guest. The site manager directed the team to serve the 12 courses of food efficiently while ensuring the logistics to run smoothly. I also wanted to personally thank the bridal butler who managed to take care of all the details that I missed. She made sure my dress looked good during phototaking, served food when I was doing touch-ups, informed me about the logistics while I was changing my outfit etc. Security - My mother-in-law was on wheelchair and the security team helped us through the entrance during ongoing protests in TST. They reacted to emergency quickly and ensured the guests found their way out. It's sad to hear that the staff I worked with last year was laid off in April. I do hope that they will be rehired when the hotel reopens. The InterContinental Hong Kong will always be one of my best memories in travel. Read less

I have stayed at the Intercontinental Hong Kong at least six times over the last 15 years. While the property has aged, it has done so gracefully. From the first views of the harbor from the lobby, to the spectacular picture window views of the harbor from the rooms, to drinks at the lobby bar, it has all been spectacular. There is nothing like… Read more
I have stayed at the Intercontinental Hong Kong at least six times over the last 15 years. While the property has aged, it has done so gracefully. From the first views of the harbor from the lobby, to the spectacular picture window views of the harbor from the rooms, to drinks at the lobby bar, it has all been spectacular. There is nothing like watching the laser light show over the harbor or the Star Ferries coming and going from Central, while having a drink in the lobby bar, to remind you that you are visiting one of the most exotic cities on earth. It is also the little things that make the hotel special, like William Ng leading early morning Tai Chi, the hot and cold (very cold) dip pools overlooking the harbor and the largest and best quality breakfast buffet I've ever seen. My hope is that with the renovation, those things that have been critical to creating this wonderful, exotic feeling aren't lost. Thanks for the memories and how about keeping your fans updated on your progress? Read less
