The InterContinental Hong Kong is one of the most famous hotels in the world, standing tall holding it’s place in the famous skyline overlooking Victoria harbor. This five star hotel is often fully booked for weeks ahead, so make sure to make any reservations early to avoid disappointment. When a hotel with 495 guest rooms is fully booked on a regular basis, you just know it’s going to be good.
This hotel is the big brother to the nearby InterContinental Grand Stanford Kowloon, also a luxury five star hotel, which is only a walk down Salisbury Road away. If you’re coming from the airport, make sure to specify the address, but most cab drivers have learned the difference between the two nowadays.The view from the harbor facing rooms here is unparalleled in the Kowloon area, and maybe the rest of Hong Kong, but the InterContinental Hong Kong is famous for more than just the scenery. You can experience truly first class five star service for both leisure travelers and business professionals alike, this hotel can give you almost every hospitality service you can imagine.
For many customers, the IC hotel on the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront has been one of the highlights of their time in Hong Kong. This hotel is ideal for a treat during a two night stopover on a long flight, not only are the features and amenities great, but the location is within walking distance of all the resturants, shopping, nightlife and culture that Tsim Sha Tsui has to offer.There is only two downsides to this waterfront hotel, the first being the fact that it’s quite hard to get a room at late notice, which isn’t really so much of a problem to have for the InterContinental brand. The second is the price, you really do get what you pay for at the IC Hong Kong, but the hotel is expensive, a standard room on a weekday booked months in advance, will cost you upwards of $300 USD at least here.
The guest rooms at the InterContinental are simply sublime, always clean and well kept, equipped with all that you would expect of a hotel with such a respectable reputation, and even more. One thing to note about the rooms here is the size, the rooms are very spacious, which is a good point to make since most of the other accommodation in the area, including some five star luxury options, have rooms which are on the smaller side.A few highlights of the features that guests here can make use of are the brilliant swimming pools, award winning first-class dining, partnered with casual lunch dining facilities. Reception can help you out with almost anything you need during your stay in Hong Kong, if you’re not sure of something, need directions to somewhere in Tsim Sha Tsui, recommendations of where to shop or anything else, the highly trained staff can help you out with it.
You can make bookings at the InterContinental Hong Kong, and other hotels at competitive rates in Tsim Sha Tsui on our reservation partners website. We really do recommend the InterContinental, if you can afford it, the experience of staying here is really worthwhile. The only problem might be getting an available room here!
