InterContinental Hong Kong

Intercontinental Hong Kong Junior Suite-024
If you are a regular reader of this blog you may have noticed that I’ve never featured a hotel in Hong Kong. It’s because we stay in a flat or apartment whenever we go to Hong Kong.

Last February after my wonderful 2 night stay at Disney’s Hollywood hotel I extended my trip and moved to the InterContinental Hong Kong hotel c/o my friend Elizabeth.

This hotel has been home to Elizabeth and her family for more than 10 years. This is where they always stay whenever they visit Hong Kong. I’ve been to this hotel numerous time to eat and to visit them but this is my first time to actually experience the hotel’s fantastic room and hospitality.

The hotel is located in Tsim Sha Tsui and is just a stone’s throw away from the Star Ferry, Harbour City and is next to Nathan Road.

When we arrived Elizabeth’s room wasn’t ready yet so they put our things in this regular guestroom. I just had enough time to take some pictures before we went to Spoon for lunch. (blog entry to follow)

For the regular rooms the toiletries were Elemis.

This room had a view of Salisbury road. That’s Sheraton hotel on the left.

From another window you can see the hotel grounds.

After lunch we went to Elizabeth’s usual room which was a junior suite. This is the exact and specific room she always stays in. It has the best view.

The bed was king size.

Bose sound system, speakers and an iPod dock. There was even a subwoofer in the cabinet.

These chocolates were sooooooooooo good!!! I brought home the whole box.

The bathroom was spectacular. And yes I tried out the jacuzzi tub.

The fully enclosed steam shower was so indulgent. Imagine hot steam then taking a cold shower right after. I felt like I stayed in my own spa.

To turn on the steam just wind the timer. 5 minutes was good enough for me.

I liked the lighted storage below the sink.

Toothbrush, razor, and other amenities.

I almost freaked out when I saw the bathrobe, towels and pillow cases embroidered with Elizabeth’s initials. I wish there was L.C. too. They really know how to take care of their regular guests.

For junior suites the toiletries were L’Occitane’s verbena line.

Even the hair dryer was sosyal!

This is the view I woke up to. The curtains can be opened and closed with a switch beside the bed. The flat I stay in has no-zero-zilch-nada view.

You can understand why Elizabeth chooses this particular room. She has the best view of the Hong Kong harbour, the convention center and Central’s skyline.

At night this is the view while I work on my blog. This trip I barely went out to shop. I was so happy to stay in the fantabulous hotel room and soak up the dynamic view outside.

They used super sweet Philippine mangoes!

To Elizabeth’s amusement I went crazy choosing several pillows from the pillow menu. I chose the latex, magnetic health pillow and contour pressure relieving pillow.

You can tell which side was mine.

Housekeeping noticed I drank a lot of water since they saw my bottles of Bonaqua so they loaded me up with lots of Fiji bottled water without my saying anything. How’s that for excellent service?

I loved my short two night stay at the InterContinental Hong Kong. But I don’t think Elizabeth will invite me to stay with her again since I didn’t want to leave the room or the hotel to eat out. Wait til you see what I ate their club lounge!! Thanks again Elizabeth for sharing your room with me. This is truly the best hotel to stay in Hong Kong if budget is no object.

  1. I really like the jacuzzi tub.  Next time I get a room with it for sure like a spa and called it really relaxing time in hotel room.

  2. I used to stay here when it was still the Regent (back in the 90s and the early 2000’s).  They had a terrific rooftop pool and hot & cold tub.
